washingtonpost.com: Internet Problems Tied to WorldCom’s UUNet Unit

They just had to bring up the WorldCom thing, didn’t they? Though they do report a statement that it was “unrelated to WorldCom’s bankruptcy”.

At a private Birmingham high school. I guess they don’t have those anti-weapons rules there.

CNN.com – Farming, logging, development affect climate, too – Oct. 3, 2002

No, really?

Did it really take NASA to figure this out? Why don’t they just take a trip to Iraq sometime — preferably before we bomb the living bejeezus out of it — and see how the eastern half of the “Fertile Crescent” has become a desert?

“Hugo Lindgren is a New York City sports fan.”

And congenital moron. If Slate let Lindgren write more, he would beat out even Tom Verducci as the worst baseball writer in the world. How, exactly, is the guy who was the best hitter on the team a problem? How is the guy who hit .314/.435/.598 (batting average/on-base percentage/slugging percentage) a flop? If the Yankees don’t win it will be because their starting pitchers are in various stages of collapse and because Mariano Rivera is hurt.
