A Poem for Thomas Friedman

The Fascist octopus has sung its swan song
as our victorious heroes step up to the plate
their hearts aflame with desire
to eat the calamari of freedom.

Nitwit Narwhal

I installed the new Ubuntu, and of course the new UI is terrible. In particular, you have to guess: unless I knew from previous experience where menu bars and scroll bars ought to be, I would never know they existed. Likewise, unless I knew that previous versions of Ubuntu had control panels, I would never know that such things existed. I'm sure the list goes on.
