Thieves going green

Thieves are apparently getting in on the green movement, stealing solar panels off homes. I guess they have always been kind of eco-conscious. Stealing is a kind of recycling, I guess.

I can’t understand where you sell solar panels on the black market.

Stevens trial a fun diversion

Hey, if the financial news is getting you down, read a story about Sen. Ted Stevens’ corruption trial. Apparently, he had employees from an oil services firm doing free work on his cabin.

But the good senator says he doesn’t know how it happened because his wife controls the family checkbook (hey ladies, you should move to Alaska. Despite being outnumbered, females seem to run the show up there). Or actually, he didn’t even know this was happening, because he said all these gifts were unsolicited and unwanted.

So a bunch of oil company workers snuck into his cabin for custom remodeling. I hate it when that happens.

MySpace not IndieSpace

So MySpace has opened a music shop, but there are no indie labels in the store. Not much of a music store, if you ask me. The store was apparently launched before the diabolical media overlords at MediaNews Corp. reached a deal with the little guys.

Seems like biting the hand that feeds. The only reason I have been to MySpace (and thus the only reason MySpace has made money off me clicking on their ads and such) has been to check out independent bands.
