Fear and Loafing in Las Vegas

Have resolved all problems from upgrading my computer. Back to normal.

Well, with Windows, a simple hardware change, followed by a restore from backup, 141.5 reboots (it hung halfway through one of them), 2 “Windows Repair” sessions and manual Registry tweaking is normal, isn’t it?

In any case, if you haven’t seen this, read it. You will think it is from The Onion edited by Scrappleface – or maybe a collaboration of Mark Steyn and P.J. O’Rourke with the ghost of H.L Mencken.

It is just a newspaper story, but it could only be better if a couple of these picketers turned out to be illegal immigrants “doing the jobs Americans won’t do.”

Picketers for Hire
“The strange business of protesting jobs that may be better than yours”

It tells you a lot about America and even more about Unions.
