Living In Science Fiction
William Gibson:
Glancing sideways is becoming more generally recognized as about the best way of doing what we used to call futurism.

A Jebless Future
""No tengo futuro (I have no future)," Jeb Bush told Spanish-language reporters in Miami, when asked about any possible political ambitions after he steps down next month.

The popular, two-term governor has often been touted as a savvy politician with a good chance of following both his brother and father, George H.W. Bush, into the White House.

But the unpopularity and dismal job-approval ratings of his brother may have scuttled any plans Jeb Bush may have had for a future in politics after running one of America's most crucial swing states for the past eight years."
While I'd sooner vote for a zombie aardvark, I do have to give Jeb points for grasping the obvious, unlike his delusional brother.

Big Wind Bad
Why was Utility Fog down since sometime Friday (12/15/2006)? Well, it seems that the Pacific Northwest had some weather problems . Thursday night there was just a teensy bit of torrential rain followed by record winds early Friday morning. The result was your basic minor apocalypse, minus the cats and dogs living together and any appearance of giant marshmallow men. Over a million people were without power (and heat), traffic has been a nightmare due to dark signals and downed trees and gasoline has become scarse because of so many powerless stations. And somewhere in the middle of all this something bad must have happened to my ISP, hence no blog (or email).
