Sympathy for the devil

Ah, the promised (and much overhyped) rant on prices is as follows. While at
the airport waiting to go to Edmonton last week I was hungry. It was 6:00am and
I hadn’t eaten yet, and had just spent an hour on the road. In short: “me need
food.” I was through the gate and past the (closed) legit places to eat, and
all I had left was the little vendor right there in front of me, amidst the
WestJet gates. I picked up the following:

  • A 5 finch bun with meat and lettuce
  • A minute-made orange juice
  • A mars bar (yea yea yea, I know, but I needed that early morning sugar

Grand total? Over $12.00!!! I believe that the bun
was $5.50, and the mars bar was over $2.00. I guess that’s just YVR‘s way of saying “please bend over and spread

Been working on the project for UserFriendly lately. The last two days have

that Dubya’s plan to make CEO and CFOs personally responsible for the numbers
that they report is, (wait for it)… not a real solution but
just polictical handwaving
. My god, they should be shot for such
un-american speach… next thing you know people will be able to say that the wonderful president looks like a

brainwashed, so don’t worry about it.

A very ballsy female senator from from somewhere is apparently claiming that the
September 11th attacks were orchistrated by Bush! I have no idea how you could
