According to The Onion, Bill Clinton is running again.
We saw him speak at a fundraiser for Jim McDermott a couple of years ago. It was impressive to see him stand up for an hour and riff on all manner of topics without notes. The current incumbent is truly a mental midget.
Not that I especially enjoyed the Clinton years. I often felt left down.
- Larry Lessig is unhappy with the sleaze emanating from Hillary Clinton.
- Joel Spolsky’s article on the Five Whys showcases a useful technique to find the root cause of problems by iteratively asking why. He also links to a great New Yorker piece on the efficacy of medical checklists.
I contacted Obama and Clinton, telling them:
Senator ___, you are still a sitting senator.
I have been underwhelmed so far by your actions on TELECOMS IMMUNITY. I expect you to go back to Washington DC and filibuster any attempt to grant immunity to the telecoms for wiretapping American citizens.
(Yes, I’ve gotten tired of asking nicely.)
I also contacted Reid, Murray, and Cantwell.
Some days I feel like a complete crank for caring about this stuff :(
