the blog/site will look like a cat's behind for a couple of days while i wander around in the world of CSS. cherish these moments. i do. ($#@#%^$&)
first. some wiener son of a kitten poop eating testicle farmer managed to hack the makeyerowncards site last night...so I had to take it down. my apologies - no images were lost so your galleries are safe. I'll try to get it back online as soon as possible, which will include sending an angry email to: http://www.directxtras.com for selling me a vulnerable plug-in. shockwave safe my pasty white butt.
second. here in NYC the MTA and transit union are locked in a tense debate over transit workers' future contracts. its already resulted in a strike that lasted for 3 days. one complication in the negotiation is that the MTA posted nearly a billion dollar surplus this year, and the employees want a piece of the pie. Two things come to mind:
1) Nyers pay $2 a ride on the subway...if there is extra money floating around, reduce the fare... or put it back into the subway system; make repairs, or build that east side line that has been the stuff of legend for years.
2) Transit workers in NY are some of the most unfriendly people I have encountered. Of course there are exceptions, but for the most part they are surly, refuse to answer simple questions, and do a terrible job at informing the public about changes in the schedule. If there is any wage increase, it should go hand in hand with a mandatory course on costumer service, or just plain simple courtesy... Transit workers are the ambassadors to NY for countless tourists...they get paid well, they have good benefits...they should act the part.
I know this doesn't pertain to a lot of you, but I've been feeling mad about this and don't have any other outlet.

a little late on this...but in tracking frey's responses i think this is a classic example of how NOT to handle negative PR. He's just ended up looking like a juvenile jerk.
the Shackle Report is a biting political blog infused with the kind of acid-laced humour that keeps me going for hours. check it out...

which was lovely. and i'm working on transcribing my resolutions which were written on a napkin while i was eating ceviche.
while i was traveling i read "maximum city" by suketu mehta - a non fiction account of the author's return to Bombay - the city in which he was raised. i highly recommend it. highly. rarely do i come across a narrators voice that pulls me in so quickly and easily.
