Steele Wins

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kevin Feasel @ 10:41 pm

Michael Steele is the new RNC chairman.  Given how poorly the Republican leadership has fared over the past few years and how dis-spirited the base has been (leading to poor fundraising and GOTV efforts), there’s a lot of work for Steele to do.  Andy McCarthy points out a troubling aspect of Steele that he hopes was just a mistake that Steele made which hemmed him in early on.

Inflation Is Coming

Filed under: Curmudgeonliness, Economics — Kevin Feasel @ 6:35 pm

This is not good.  I’m thinking it’s about time for me to get into some Euro-denominated securities, as at least the Bundesbankers aren’t getting sucked in to Inflationmania 2009…yet…

Muffling

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kevin Feasel @ 9:44 pm

Traveling up to Akron last weekend, I apparently procured a hole or tear or something in my exhaust system, leaving my car to sound like a Sherman tank (though given the roads in Columbus the last few days, a Sherman tank might have hit the spot…).  I should have this fixed tomorrow, for those of you who’re unable to sleep because I’m out warming my car up at 6 AM…

Royal Rumble 2009: NAILED IT!

Filed under: Television and/or Movies, Wrestling — Tony Demchak @ 10:22 pm

Randy Orton, as my brilliant post suggested, was indeed your 2009 Royal Rumble winner. How did my other guesses do? Jericho, Punk, and Kane all gave good accounts of themselves. Show came out at #30, got eliminated by Taker (or possibly the other way around… I forget), continuing that feud. I’m not saying I want more Big Show-Undertaker, but hell, at least we’re done with Matt Hardy-Mark Henry for a while. MVP looked solid, but wasn’t even in the final ten. Orton was part of the Final Four, with HHH, Rhodes, and DiBiase as the other three. HHH eliminated Rhodes and DiBiase, while Orton deposited HHH on the outside of the ring with little or no fuss.

Booking wise, I think it was the right finish. Some may complain of HHH burying the Legacy, but the Legacy must absolutely be based in unity for the time being. No member can fight another member; when the group eventually breaks apart, it must be a significant break, not just a widening of the existing fractures between group members.

The Rumble was disappointing for two reasons: no Christian and minimal surprise entrants. RVD was an awesome surprise, but even he cannot make the rest of the Rumble unpredictable.

What does this mean for Wrestlemania? No Way Out has the elimination chambers, which means that there’s a considerable chance one or both titles will change hands. Without knowing more about who is in which chamber, I’m uncomfortable with exact guesses. Orton vs. Cena (c) is almost a lock; Jericho-Rourke (w/ Ric Flair?) is another certainty. Money in the Bank will be as awesome as ever. Hardy vs. Hardy is guaranteed; if Edge drops the belt, Edge and Christian could also be involved, but for now, I’ll stick with a singles match.

Stimulating Notes

Here’s a whole bunch of bailout, “stimulus,” and other notes on the madness of modern economists.

I haven’t had the chance to play with this very much, but Google’s Ajax API looks reasonably promising.

New Term Starts

Filed under: Programming & Work, Schooled! — Kevin Feasel @ 10:03 pm

My next academic term has begun.  The course I am taking this time around is managerial accounting, which will probably be very useful for development purposes.  Unfortunately, I’m already a chapter behind, as we covered chapters 1 and 2 today and I only finished chapter 1.  Ah, well; it’s just one more thing to stick in my ever-growing schedule…
