THE QUICK BROWSE FIREFOX JUMPED OVER THE LAZY BLOG*
The new Quickbrowse for Firefox is up at quickbrowse.com, together with a one-minute demo video. Because it’s integrated as a Firefox add-on, it works with almost all Web sites – saving time by combining any sites you visit daily into a single combined page. All free, of course.
* It occurs to me some of you – perhaps most of you – may have no idea what this headline refers to. And I’m curious to know. So here is the world’s shortest (one-question) survey – designed with SurveyMonkey.com in two minutes – to find out. Please click here to let me know. Thanks!
Jill: ‘What is the DNC going to do to solve the Florida/Michigan problem that its rules contributed to?’
☞ We’re going to do the only possible thing: Stick to the rules (unless both campaigns agree on how they’d like them changed).
These are rules everyone agreed to before the game started – and before anyone knew which states (if any) would break them or which candidates would thereby be disadvantaged.
The rules do allow either state to do a re-vote . . . the DNC can’t force them to – or not to.
Here‘s the background posted a few weeks ago.
But here’s the thing to focus on: we have two superb candidates. The Democratic turnout has been amazing. If we keep our eye on the ball – and come together when the primary is over, as our two candidates have pledged to do, regardless of the outcome – we will win the White House in November, widen our hair-thin majority in the Senate, stanch the rightwing slide of the Judiciary, and begin to get America back on a progressive, hopeful track.
It would have been good to have the presumptive nominee sooner. But June – the likely endpoint – is time enough. That’s when Bill Clinton clinched it in 1992.
NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT
Can I say one thing? Every time I hear one or the other of the two candidates confirm that Barack is not a Muslim, I keep expecting them to say, ‘Not that there’s anything wrong with being Muslim. The vast majority of America’s millions of Muslims are hard-working, patriotic, tax-paying citizens like the rest of us.’ Maybe that goes without saying – but I thought I’d say it anyway.
Quote of the Day
We've forgotten all the sacrifices that the people who've gone before us made to give us this wonderful life that we have. We accept it; we take it for granted; we think it's our birthright. The facts are, it's precious, it's fragile -- it can disappear.~Ross Perot, 1988
