An interesting news item gleaned from Witchvox...

The head of the New York Civil Liberties Union criticized Friday the Police Department's infiltration of political organizations without "strong evidence of criminal activity."

Donna Lieberman, the group's executive director, said she was referring to an account in Newsday of detectives from the Intelligence Division traveling to Boston in February to infiltrate a meeting of a group called "Black Tea Society."

The group met in a Boston church to discuss plans to protest at the Democratic National Convention this summer in Boston.

In happier news, I've overhauled my music page a bit, consolidating the audio I've made over the past couple of years.  I've also updated my MST3k page to better list the MSTie stuff on which I'm working.

Note to self: do my taxes.

This just in: Arnold Scwarzenegger saved a swimmer's life at a Hawaii beach.

On his way home, he helped an old lady across the street, saved a busload of nuns from crashing into a brick wall, came up with a cure for cancer, and saved all the animals from a burning pet store.  Even the snakes!

Putting this together was the most blatant waste of my time since the time I took a three-hour-long bike ride to a state park, used their bathroom, and rode back home.

So go test yourself on one of the lamest possible subjects!  Despite what they tell you in the beginning, you are shown your score whether or not you give them your email address.
