Major sufferings around these parts lately, and we’re not talking about angst over where Johnny Damon is going to sign. Rather, it appears that for about 20 hours Typepad ate most all of their clients’ postings, and resorted to airing five-day-old versions of their hosted sites, without any ability for readers to comment. We were unable to alert everyone to this problem due to the lack of an interface, but all appears well now, so begin firing away again.
There have also been some internal problems. YF wanted to let everyone know that his IBook has been made subject to extraordinary rendition by the Bush Administration, and is currently on a black plane somewhere to have it’s guts ripped out, the secrets of a technical flatline revealed. He’ll try to post something wonderful about the indisputable Cashmanian genius that was the Ron Villone pickup via his Commodore 64, but in the meantime the site is mostly yours.
As for me? Well, the site wouldn’t be the site without a Copernican A-Rod discussion, so I’ll start the chatter by pointing out that once again, he takes the oh-so unlikeable path and makes it all about his egomaniacal, insecure, windbaggish, and openly confessional and conflicted self instead of just keeping it simple and saying "can’t do it, too tough to choose". Let’s get back at it.
