And Now, For Something Completely Different

Jams of Poor Mouth has a post on an unusual reaction to the situation in Burma. I make no claims regarding the efficacy of such action, but if you are interested:

Embassy of the Union of Myanmar
2300 S Street, NW
Washington DC 20008

Homeland Security will probably get a little squirrely over this, but they need to learn how to use ‘Net search engines.

When Logic Fails

Dr. Black always finds time to point out the failings of David Broder, as he does in Matlock’s Vision of Health Care, but he doesn’t spend enough time reviewing all of the disconnections in Broder’s column about Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt.

Consider these excerpts from Broder’s Washington Post column, Leavitt’s Healthy Vision

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. — For most of the American public, Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt is best defined by his role defending President Bush’s controversial veto of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.

This Was Just Wrong

Bringiton at Corrente discusses a recent incident involving a 75-year-old woman an Comcast cable system.

The woman was plainly wrong. Just look at the accompanying picture. She used a 16-ounce curved claw hammer, probably a Plumb model 11406 from the handle, and that was simply wrong. She should have used a 16-ounce ball peen hammer like the Plumb model 11426. I know some of you are thinking that a 32-ounce double-faced engineer’s hammer was the proper choice, but she is 75, and that would be too much hammer for the job.

Remember, when your purpose is to convince a customer service organization about your seriousness in pursuing service, a demonstration of knowledge and competence is important in the presentation of your complaint.
