I think that's a pretty good synopses of the news media today. It's no wonder since Rupert Merdock's corporation is said to own a estimated 95% of the news media in the world today. (I don't know what that percentage really is, but it's a lot) in other words, the news is no longer news. A more accurate definition of what we call the news today is propaganda. A very large percentage of the American people are too stupid to see what's happening. Nevertheless, everyone will realize what's going on when they start shipping people to the concentration camps. Oh, you didn't know about the concentration camps? There are hundreds of them built across America. You didn't know that? Haliburtun received a $314 billion contract (which is actually less than the interest government paid on the national debt this year) contract to build those prisons next to railroad tracks, you know just like Nazi Germany. But to look on the bright side, there is no shortage of dumb asses in the US. <wink>

Happy Monday UX-Ers!

Okay, so not EXACTLY UX related -- but I was talking to Patrick Neeman over the weekend and he sent me this.  It's a cover letter Hunter S. Thompson submitted with some writing samples to a paper back before he was famous.  I love that he had this sort of attitude even before he was REALLY nuts.  

I wanted to share:
