"Time magazine said this week it would hand over a reporter's notebooks to a grand jury despite that reporter's willingness to go to jail to keep his promise to protect his sources."

Please read Julia at Sisyphus Shrugged on this because she says it ALL.

Distrubing news for Batman fans. It's grim and it's gritty.

And it's SuperFrankenstein! Who is also a fan of Isabel Samaras! Yay!

Update 080105: Yay! I can go back to Powell's links! Yay!

"Witness democracy in action. We have heard your voices and taken your comments and suggestions into serious consideration. When last you heard from us, we told you about our need to add a check processing fee and mandatory quarterly payouts to our program. With your help, we have developed a better way to do things. So, no check fee! No quarterly mandatory payouts!

"Going forward, our payment policy will look like this:

"Commission payments in the form of Powells.com credit or a check -- your choice! Just log into your partner account, visit "Your Partner Info," and make your choice from the drop-down box. Powells.com credit will be the default selection unless you choose otherwise.

"If you select check, we will still ask that you reach a minimum of $25 in commission before we send you a check. If you don't reach $25 during a given quarter, we'll roll your commission over into the next quarter until you do reach $25. We will still mail checks (where the commission meets the required minimum of $25.00) approximately 30 days after the close of each business quarter. Before we cut your check, you will always have the option of redeeming your commission as Powells.com credit -- just log into your account, visit the "Payments" section and click on the "Pay Me!" button."

end of update

"Beginning in July, at the start of Q3 2005, every Partner earning more than $1 in commission during a given business quarter will now receive payment at the end of that quarter. In addition, you will have the option to receive your commission in the form of Powells.com virtual credit or check. When you log into your Partner account (https://www.powells.com/cgi-bin/partners/login), and visit the 'Your Partner Info' section, you will now find a drop-down menu that allows you to select your preferred payment method, which you free to change at any time. Virtual credit will be the default payment method going forward, unless you select otherwise, and may be used for the purchase of anything on Powells.com.

"If you are to receive payment in virtual credit, Powell's will send you an email at the end of each quarter detailing the amount of credit you earned and how to use it. In order to receive payment via check, we will still ask that you meet a $25 commission minimum during each quarter and we will deduct an $8 processing fee for each check that we send. Commissions will no longer accrue from quarter to quarter, so partners who don't reach the $25 minimum will receive their payment in virtual credit (no matter the payment method chosen). If you earn less than $1 during a quarter, your account will be cleared and the balance returned to $0.

"Please review the newly revised Official Partner Agreement, which is always available for your perusal here: http://www.powells.com/partners/agree.html."

Well, I was using the Powells Partner Program because, according to BuyBlue.org, they gave all their political contributions to the Dems. But I use the Partner money to offset the cost of running J LHLS, which is not entriely for my own amusement, so this is a very big slap in the face.

I don't know if I'll start coding Amazon links again, but Powells has definitely lost my business.

"Howl's Moving Castle" summary:

Love is good
War is bad
Lauren Bacall's voice has still got It.

I liked it, even though it was a little too cute for me. I think it would bore teens and some of it might freak little kids out. So I'm not sure who this anime is for. Oh, and the music was good. And, of course, the animation was good. Not "Ghost in the Shell 2"* mind-blowingly great, but good.

Full disclosure: "Snow White" on a big big screen scared the hell out of me when I was six and still freaks me out a little.

*Not that anyone was going to run right out and buy this, but if you do want it, wait for the special edition in July. The Dreamworks version sucks: they subtitle the sound effects in the English subtitles, but not in the French subtitles. This sucks and, in addition to being distracting, it's insulting.

Fantagraphics Blog.

Welcome to blogging, boyz, you'll fit right in. I can only hope you do a well as Dirk, who was the nicest guy in comics blogging for as long as he was blogging.

"America's fiscal mess may be even harder to write about engagingly than Darfur, because the victims of our fiscal recklessness aren't weeping widows whose children were heaved onto bonfires. But if you need to visualize the victims, think of your child's face, or your grandchild's.

"President Bush has excoriated the 'death tax,' as he calls the estate tax. But his profligacy will leave every American child facing a 'birth tax' of about $150,000.

"That's right: every American child arrives owing that much, partly to babies in China and Japan. No wonder babies cry."
A Glide Path to Ruin, by Nicholas D. Kristof, NY Times Op/Ed, June 27, 2005

Yet another reason I'm glad I never wanted kids (but proofreading would have been good). Hey, psycho Republicans, doncha love your kids? Isn't this a crappy thing to do to your kids? I know you don't care about anybody else's kids, but this bill is for your kids, too.

The best revenge...

"But look at them... Three guys spending all day in each other's company... While I'm the one walking down Broadway with a gorgeous blonde."

...is a sense of humor.

Hey, not only does she vote, she reads, too.
