Humpday Post

Something about the incoming e-mail *ding* that can be constantly heard in an open work-space really perturbs me. My cube neighbor coughing up internal organs followed by a oink (I think it's a swine flu joke) isn't pleasant either.

Funny item in the Onion today: World's Worst Person Decides To Go Into Marketing

I'm thinking you could do a similar item for Human Resources...

I'm not sure what I think about this Gov Sanford MIA story. It's interesting, that's for sure -- and makes for good reading -- but I don't think I don't know if I should/or would care one way or the other if I was still a resident of South Carolina. I'm leaning towards no. But I like the guy a lot so I'm willing to admit some bias towards thinking he ISN'T a fucking lunatic.

It's hard though being a libertarian sympathizer (speaking of myself) when most of your political leaders are in fact borderline lunatics. It makes you -- in a case such as this one -- a little gun shy about defending the guy right off the bat.

(We could argue for a while about where exactly Mark Sanford fits on both the libertarian scale and the crazy scale. I'd argue he is pretty advanced on the libertarian scale and just the right amount of crazy. But I wouldn't be willing to place a large bet on either one of my guesses.)
