This site is not, as far as I know, Y2K compliant. In truth, I have no idea what it would mean for it to be Y2K compliant. If we are to believe the Prophets Of Doom (TM) those tending software have no great idea either about what it means to be Y2K compliant. When Jan 1, 2000 rolls around, Western Civilization As We Know It will come to an end and barbarian survivalism shall reign supreme.
I am somewhat skeptical about this scenario but we shall see. Suffice it to say that I am not in any big rush to stock up on dried food and weapons to fend off the ravening hordes.
In the meantime I am more concerned about making this site 1999 compliant. This business of organizing the site as an ezine has its seamy side. Each month I put together a table of contents for the month and tweak and twiddle various links. The new year transition involves a good more tweaking, changing about 30 pages. It is, I suppose a good excuse for updating various formats. I hope all of you suckers are properly appreciative of the work I do for you.
I suppose I should say something about Surreal Saturday and the other nonsense that is going on in Washington. I have my suspicions about the polls. They don’t even ask questions that match my opinions. I may be alone in my eccentricity but I suspect not – it is almost impossible to have an original opinion. Briefly, I think that the impeachment is inane and I heartily approve – it’s good theatre.
The sundry politicians, both Republican and Democrat, have offered us stellar examples of partisan hypocrisy. The Democrats, by virtue of a semen stained dress and sundry admissions wrung out of our fine President, have been forced to move out of denial and admit what has been patently obvious, that our fine President is somewhat of a sleaze. The Republicans have held the bazooka up to their face, looked down the sights, aimed, fired, and have discovered what back blast means.
The more time they spend on this the better, I say. Soon, however, they shall dispose of the mess one way or another and go back to business as usual. The liberals shall concentrate on gutting liberalism, the conservatives shall concentrate on gutting conservatism, and they shall unite in gutting the constitution and civil liberties. Inane foreign adventures shall continue as we play policeman to the world ala The Keystone Kops. Environmental issues shall continue to be addressed by fine words in lieu of deeds.
So much for politics.
