Late Again

A day shot down by interrupted sleep and a night shot down by having to balance my mom's checkbook, which task bears some resemblance to a particular labor of Hercules (hint: it requires re-routing a river.) Then it got very cold with the clouds gone for most of the night. One small patch of cloud passed over the moon a while ago, and it looked like a giant pair of bat wings. Or it was the Bat Signal.

Maybe Google sent up the Bat Signal. Somebody is after them. Google is refusing to turn over to Federal investigators information about searches conducted by the site's users. The Feds claim they want to use such records in preparing their defense against a lawsuit brought by the ACLU challenging the Constitutionality of COPA. Microsoft, AOL and Yahoo! have already handed over their records. Of course, this doesn't mean that Google is doing this to champion civil liberties. They may be fighting the subpoena because they fear that a leaky government agency will reveal the search engine's trade secrets. Still, half a loaf....

To get the taste of that out of your mouth, try Hotlix Candy (unearthed by m_leprae.)

Also, I will never catch up with all of yesterday's posts.
