Short Takes

My favorite, and most concise, description of the Naughts from Lady Min in comments: “Y2K to WTF”.

The Koufax Awards will open nominations at the end of January. If you are new the Left Side, the Koufax Awards are people based. The people do the nominating and the voting. Go over and review the FAQ.

A lot of people seem fascinated because some junkie has health problems. If you abuse your body, you will have health problems, and burn up a lot of care that should be going to real people that deserve the access.

Thanks to the Hedgemony, a lot of older wealthy people are having to pay a lot of attention to their heirs. In 2010 there is no estate tax, so there’s a very large financial incentive to snuff people with large estates. As a bonus, most of the soon to be offed are probably Republicans.

of course, most of those have probably already reproduced, given that they’ve got heirs waiting to off them. yes, i know, heirs aren’t always direct descendants, but they often are.

from y2k to wtf, ftw!

A lot of elderly men, wealthy or otherwise, have no hairs. Oh, wait…

Of course in many jurisdictions it will a few years before they stop voting, but it helps over the long term, Hipparchia.

Bald jokes are not funny, especially when it’s as cold as it is going to be this week.

Hey, my hair is thinning… I keep a cap handy in winter, in a way I never bothered to do in my younger years… and my natural heirs never existed.

Aside but FTR, that photo in my Gravatar is about 30 years old. Boy, I looked better back then…

I don’t know about looked, but I saw better back then, without the lines across the bottom of my glasses.

If you are having the same cold spell we are, the cap will come in handy.

Not freezing here, just chilly. I will keep the cap handy, though. Stay warm!
