The Worst Vice Presidential Nominee in U.S.... →
ericlodwick: samreich: Also from this article, here are the reasons why Palin is a terrible VP pick. She’s inexperienced. McCain can no longer argue that Obama is inexperienced. It’s an obvious ploy to lure disgruntled Hilary supporters. The ploy shows that McCain obviously doesn’t put America first, since he’s willing to put someone inexperienced a heartbeat away from the presidency. It...
Why does Tumblr interpret “</summerbreak>” in the title as HTML code in the dashboard? (via wctaiwan)
Palin wants creationism taught in science classes. →
atheistramblings: McCain’s choice for VP, Sarah Palin, is a fun loving Northern USA gal. She’s an ex-beauty queen (not much competition in the north) who’s into killing polar bears, and wiping out wolves to increase moose and caribou numbers so she can shoot them as well, she’s also against abortion for any reason and now it turns out she wants creationism taught not in religion classes but in...
I wonder how Palin expects to further women’s rights when McCain has consistently voted against bills that would do so.

Signs a Website Needs a Redesign →
inky: The layout looks (through squinted eyes) like a domain squatter. The color scheme looks like a high level on Missile Command. The type selection looks like a ransom note. It looks like the designer is waging (and winning) a war on white space. From Steve Dekorte, creator of Io.

ben: I should say that even though I hate the design, I have no less respect for it’s designer.
I really like the new Explore and the new buttons and the flag that alerts you to new posts, but dashboard pages are unintuitive now (if you keep pressing back, you end up clicking the link to your tumblr). And why is it that they only give you about 20px in which to write text posts? I can get used to the dashboard, but please, make submission textareas bigger!

Who’s ever heard of a w-y ligature? (I don’t know, but I’ve just done it.)
The Weathermen ad.
bunnynico: “This negative campaign ad is clearly express advocacy, and under a federal law passed in 2003, the Bi-Partisan Campaign Reform Act (known colloquially as McCain-Feingold), it cannot legally be paid for with corporate money, including those of a non-profit,” said Laura MacCleery, deputy director of the democracy program at the Brennan Center for Justice [at NYU Law].” The Swift...

geneplain: This blog no longer permits Internet Explorer users of any kind. I am giving up a large part of my very small uninterested audience, but I am confident it is worth it. If every developer did this, the problem would be solved. This seems a bit extreme, but I like it.

If you want sweet dreams, you’ve got to live a sweet life.– Animal Dreams, Barbara Kingsolver It’s always great to read the part of a book where the title is; I remember it clearly in most books I’ve read since 9th grade, like To Kill a Mockingbird and Atlas Shrugged and this.

Good day, my gentleman Love is all around! When I look through the window in my home, I see the pigeons caress each other on the tree, I see the leaves of the tree rub each other tenderly.

I want to give all I am to the person I will meet...
