This'll never be a movie

Green Bay, Wisconsin, police had the easiest car chase and capture in the history of policing. Well, it'd have to be pretty close.

Pop star has panties in a wad

Oh, this is a shame.

Come-back pop singer Kylie Minogue is upset because someone is trying to auction off her "knickers," as Reuters calls them.

Alas, I can't comment anymore on this. This is a family blog, you know.

Not that I'm likely to go anywhere...

But this is a pretty cool way to figure out how far it is from here to there, wherever here and there are.

A website about dead musicians, and how they got that way. Actually very interesting, if you like the macabre. Which I tend to.

Casting Call

bad samaritan, another excellent group blog of which I am a member, is looking for new authors. There are several Blogfodderians (that's an ugly name, we need a new one - any suggestions?) I think would make good candidates. Go have a look and suggest yourself to mg if you're interested.

It's a Good Thing

Well, well, well: The doyenne of domesticity, Martha Stewart, has made her bed and now she's going to have to lie in it -- and it doesn't look like the thread count of the sheets is going to exceed 150.

SEC is pursuing security-fraud charges against her. Shame. Damn shame.

Hey There

Hey fellow blogfodder,
Hope everyone is well. I'm just writing to let you know I'm still alive and kicking. I left a similar post over at the Weigh In, indicating that I hope to resume posting in late November/ early December (after my wedding and honeymoon)...

Everyone be safe,

Oops, We didn't do it the first time.

Blogfodder residents will likely notice that their interface to MT looks significantly different. At Dodd's request I poked around and noticed we'd missed a stylesheet when we installed the software. Oops.

Doesn't it look rather a bit sleeker with the all the proper settings!

Since Dodd keeps using the word and complaining about the quotes, I say we rename the "air quotes" to "snarky quotes."

Also, MT is completely hellish in Mozilla/Netscape. The field for entering text in for this entry is approximately 3 characters wide. Makes it hard to edit, folks.

Late breaking news

Susanna and I were on IM tonight when the television stations broke the news that another shooting had occurred.

Suz has set up all of her links and I finally weighed in with my two cents and a transcript of our chat.

I live a scant seven miles from the latest shooting. Those choppers were flying low and fast tonight.

But not fast enough, it seems.

Blogfodder residents should have noticed that their MT has been upgraded to v2.5. Somehow, the images in your interface were screwed up in this process, but I have the site guru looking into that so hopefully it will be fixed soon.

The new version includes some nifty new features, including a built-in search function and a new default template called "Clean". Feel free to rejigger your templates to include the new features. The default templates (which include the code needed for the search function) are available at movable type.

UPDATE: I have finished the MT v2.5 upgrade - which is to say I fixed your broken images. Your interfaces should have their proper appearance now.

Heavy-handed Tactics Bite Back

The city of Houston is reeling from the aftereffects of the K-Mart incident in which 273 people were arrested in August. "The police chief might go to prison for perjury. The captain who led the raid might eventually be fired. Twelve other officers have been relieved of duty. And the city faces millions in potential legal costs."
