It seems the LAPD, who has been ordered not to walk in an arrest everyone at the Convergence Center (where DNC protestors have been organizing,) came up with a new way to harrass demonstrators. At the Independent Media Center's site (also HQ for Democracy Now! and Deep Dish TV,) the police decided there was a bomb threat and cordoned off the building. Interestingly enough, no bomb disposal gear or people showed up.

"When the state of Utah had the honor of executing Gary Gilmore, one of its most notorious and cold-blooded killers, it counted on an old-fashioned firing squad to get the job done. If a rifle was good enough to send Gary Gilmore to hell, isn't it good enough for the soulless killers in your state?"

This week's "A List Apart" is a homage to one of my favorite movies. If you've accused anyone in the production department of your Web shop of being a "Code Nazi," or have had that term applied to you, you'll love this story about validation and doomsday devices.

Dear Bill,

Bigot and self-described Man of G_D Jerry Falwell told the Mercury News this week that the GOP can win this fall if the Religious Right can stay shut up. Aside from the hissy fit on the floor when an openly Gay Congressman spoke on trade, the nuts have done a good job of staying out of the spotlight.

They are still a major influence on the GOP.
