    Dear Google,

    I do not go to porn sites that cost money so there is no point in sending me porn ads unless the site is free.

    Sincerely,

    A conversation between Google execs and Department of Homeland Security toadies:

    DHS: we want a full access backdoor to your usage data.

    Google: That is a violation of the Constitution, you will need a warrant for any access and we will contest any abuse in court.

    DHS: Golly, you told us! Hey, how's that anti-trust suit going for you? I hear the DOJ is ripping you guys a new one. Your stock is down 12%.

    Google: What? there's no lawsuit... Oh, yeah, we get it. We changed our minds about that whole secret, backdoor data access thingy. Yeah, no problem!

    Honestly, I think my ISP would rollover immediately and they have a much better record of my Internet usage.

    Okay, semi-serious question here: what the differecne between a managing editor, senior editor, and associate editor? Because as near as I can tell, all three write articles more than they edit stuff. I get editor-in-chief, but the subtleties of the lower grades of editor baffle me.

    And why is Cavanaugh a lowly columnist? Does he have better things to do than proof other people's mistakes?
