Odds and Ends
Spam Karma has missed about 6 spam comments so far. It’s caught over 600, so that’s not bad at all. It’s also now blocked 2 of my own pingbacks. Odd.
I now have a little script up in the corner that shows what song I’m listening to/listened to last, via the Audioscrobbler service. Click on it and you go to the page for my listening history. We’ll see if it slows down my site a lot; the service kind of drags at times.
Someone took issue with my most recent letter to the editor in the paper today. It seems Ms. Gardner wants to take the blame off the letter writer for the twisted quotation (which, as I agree, she did not do herself). I would be more sympathetic if the writer had not decided to attack someone for not examining what he’d been taught. By any standard she should have checked the quote, considering it has a biologist at a major university repudiating something that biologists overwhelmingly support as the unifying theme of their science. If she hadn’t done the very thing she attacked the other writer for, it would be more excusable.
Vern Smalley, crazy letter writer extraordinaire, decided to grace my blog with some of his ramblings, along with one at A Chicken Is Not Pillage. I have to say, I think Wulfgar got the best of the three.
