"It's morning in America, Hackenbush, and you work the nightshift."

"Actually, there are two correct words for the attraction to adolescents: ephebophilia and hebephilia. But since most people don't know these words, they don't really qualify as "not very nice". They mostly qualify as obscure, arcane, and the sort of words academics and shrinks would know but most people wouldn't."
Sex and conservatives, The Sideshow, December 2, 2005

Kudos to Avedon Carol for these words I can fling around when next the subject of Japanese men sniffing Japanese schoolgirls' panties comes up.

But read Avedon's whole post because if you don't get up every morning and thump your chest because you're proud to be a liberal... you will after you read this post.

"The Postal Service Board of Governors voted to accept the Postal Rate Commission’s recommendations to increase most postal rates and fees across-the-board by approximately 5.4%. The increase -- the first since 2002 -- is needed to satisfy a 2003 federal law requiring the Postal Service to establish a $3.1 billion escrow account. If it weren’t for the federal mandate, it wouldn’t be necessary to raise rates in 2006.

"The single-piece rate for First-Class Mail will increase from 37 cents to 39 cents and the postcard rate will increase by one cent to 24 cents. A non-denominational 39-cent stamp will be issued featuring the Statue of Liberty and the U.S. flag.

"The increase takes effect at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 8, 2006."
USPS Approves Postal Rate Increase

Goddam it. Also see this post for Rates and background. Snarl.

Emily the Stowaway Cat Lands in Wisconsin, By RYAN NAKASHIMA, The Associated Press, Thursday, December 1, 2005; 8:47 PM

The Incedible Journey pets got nothing on this cat.

I don't want to think about it too much, but how long was this cat locked in the dark without food or water? Yikes.

"Women and men are often perceived as having differences in their senses of humour but, until now, there had been no neurological evidence for such suspicions. The new brain scanning study showed that although men and women tended to agree on which of the single-panel cartoons they were shown were funny, they processed the humour differently in their brains."
Women get a bigger buzz from cartoonsF, 12:10 08 November 2005, NewScientist.com news service, Gaia Vince (via Ann Bartlow at Sivacracy.net)

Oh, well, this explains everything.

"American workers at big companies used to think they had made a deal. They would be loyal to their employers, and the companies in turn would be loyal to them, guaranteeing job security, health care and a dignified retirement.

"Such deals were, in a real sense, the basis of America's postwar social order. We like to think of ourselves as rugged individualists, not like those coddled Europeans with their oversized welfare states. But as Jacob Hacker of Yale points out in his book "The Divided Welfare State," if you add in corporate spending on health care and pensions - spending that is both regulated by the government and subsidized by tax breaks - we actually have a welfare state that's about as large relative to our economy as those of other advanced countries.

"The resulting system is imperfect: those who don't work for companies with good benefits are, in effect, second-class citizens. Still, the system more or less worked for several decades after World War II.

"Now, however, deals are being broken and the system is failing. Remember, Delphi was once part of General Motors, and its workers thought they were totally secure.

"What went wrong? An important part of the answer is that America's semi-privatized welfare state worked in the first place only because we had a stable corporate order. And that stability - along with any semblance of economic security for many workers - is now gone."
Age of Anxiety, by Paul Krugman, NYT Op/Ed, via TruthOut (yay!), November 28, 2005

And WalMart is the largest employer in the US, and we all know how well they do health insurance.

Workers of America! National Health Insurance is only the beginning of a better country, if not world, for everyone. What the hell are we waiting for?

"Dr. Karl seconds that emotion, citing anecdotes of goldfish responding happily to their owner's faces, while hiding in their tiny castles when confronted with strangers. And while goldfish were domesticated in China roughly a thousand years ago, they still swim in schools, and thus have some learned social behavior.

"The MythBusters TV show taught some goldfish to swim through a maze, noting that their time got better on each successive run. And an interesting response to the AnswerBag Forum describes goldfish memory as 'selective' -- they have a general idea of what happened on a previous occasion, they're just not sure what. We empathize."
How long is a goldfish's memory?, AskYahoo, November 29, 2005

Why domesticate goldfish? Because they're pretty? Can you eat them? Hm.

"What was good for our country," a former president of General Motors once declared, "was good for General Motors, and vice versa." Fast Forward: "National Health Insurance is good for our country," the president of General Motors soon declares, "and is good for General Motors and everyone else." Dr. Krugman does a better job explaining this, but you get the idea. Hey, as long as there is National Health Insurance that helps everyone, I'm happy it helps GM, too. (Oh, while I'm at it, hurrah for TruthOut.)

And more from TruthOut, they have The Long March of Dick Cheney, by Sidney Blumenthal, too. Yay!
