Hunters still rock post-nerf

So after the nerf, I switched from BM to SV.

Here’s a 25-man Vault chart:

Ride The Tiger!

anchovy rides the tiger

Anchovy has been level 70 on the Staghelm realm for some time now. Recently, I got the reputation to buy a Swift Winterspring Frostsaber, and here she is hanging out in Ironforge.

From the “I could have told them that” department ....

This is from page 24 of the June 6, 2008, edition of The Inquisitor:

Adam Bryan Giblin, W/M,
DOB: 4/25/67, of
4611 Tibbs St.,
Shreveport, was
arrested by Officer
R. Christian on a
charge of theft and
on an outstanding
Caddo bench warrant
for proper equipment required
on vehicle. Over the last
year, the suspect allegedly took
from his place of employment
compact discs valued from
$5,000 to $15,000 and then sold
them to a local store to cash
them in.

Adam is the former program director at Red River Radio, the referenced place of employment.

I can’t be the only one who worked there who knew what was going on. Five to 15 grand is a lot of CDs! Or maybe something else went down, too. I also know of one occasion when he charged a local organization money to promote an event on the air with a fake “live remote.”

Torture & NPR

A couple of things about torture.

First, waterboarding is torture, no ifs, ands or buts. If my word isn’t good enough, consider former P.O.W. John McCain’s:

“All I can say is that it was used in the Spanish Inquisition, it was used in Pol Pot’s genocide in Cambodia, and there are reports that it is being used against Buddhist monks today,” Mr. McCain, who spent more than five years in a North Vietnamese prison camp, said in a telephone interview.

Of presidential candidates like Mr. Giuliani, who say that they are unsure whether waterboarding is torture, Mr. McCain said: “They should know what it is. It is not a complicated procedure. It is torture.”

Therefore, it’s distressing that a potential U.S. Attorney General won’t take a firm stand against waterboarding.

We must do better as a nation.

Second, NPR’s Steve Inskeep and Anne Garrels collaborated on a story that used sources who had been tortured. Instead of focusing on the torture, they focused on the resultant unsurprising confessions. It caused a firestorm of response, and FAIR issued an action alert. Garrels lamely defended herself, and it came off contrived.

We must do better as a nation.

Marshall Fannin Blog Gone Again

Here's what I know about it: bupkus.

Anyone know anything?

IT appears to me that Marshall changed his domain hosting. That means it might be back soon. Or it might not be. The domain wasn't set to expire until next year, so I don't think it's a claim jumper. This is just speculation.
