Random Thoughts for 2009-01-19
What does it mean to the planet that America will have a new President shortly? I wonder if he realizes that one way to cut government spending would be to not just eliminate welfare in the inner-city but to drop welfare countries such as Israel.
I finally have visibility into how many of my coworkers are reading my blog. More importantly, I have made it a lot easier for them to do so in stealth mode by including links within Plaxo.
