Now that the hurricane's gone ... get ready for the mosquitoes
Like hurricanes aren't scary enough... West Nile Virus and St. Louis Encephalitis! Eep.
I've been asked to participate in two elaborate net-hoaxes, set to launch in the distant future. I can't go into details here, but I'm still deciding if I should participate or not. One is probably pretty useful to mankind, while the other is just sort of fun. Both are a little work, though, so it'll have to bypass my naturally lazy streak.
Imagine, if you will, that Enron’s cadre of lying, cheating, stealing executives weren’t living it up in Dallas while bleeding granny dry in Fresno, but instead were taking advantage of grandmothers in Peking. What do you think the Chinese government would do to punish them?
Apparently, they’d kill them. Four employees of the nation’s Big Four state-owned banks were executed for fraud totaling $15 million. China didn’t disclose how they executed the men, but generally they either shoot them in the back of the head or inject them with poison.

Father of the Pride is cute, and if Sigfried & Roy have anything to do with how they're represented in the show, I have a new respect for 'em.
Weird but cool... I heard from Nicole H. (mentioned a little bit here) last night. I haven't seen her for an age, since the old IMT days. I know Kev'll be happy to hear from her, as well. (Once I pass her note and Email along to him.) I look forward to catching up with her... I noticed that she still has her last name. I wonder if she ever got married to that guy, or if she's still hanging out with Heather?
