What?  What do you mean you don’t understand the title of this entry?  Would it help you if you knew the definitions of governor and drudge?  Does that help?  What if it were "Master/Slave" instead?  Would you then understand?  And further, what if I were to put it into context for you?  Better?  Good.

Now you can go read about the boneheaded, political correctness zealots in LA that don’t understand what it means.  At least not in terms of the computer industry.  Idiots.  Who’s putting who in shackles now?

Apparently I’m not alone in my amusement as illustrated by this past Sunday’s User Friendly.

Argh! It’s a Minivan!

Yes, it’s true.  I’ve succumbed to the pressure of my growing family.  I’m abandoning the crowded and uncomfortably tight family travel accomodations provided by our 1997 Ford Escort and have joinde the minivan throng.  And in true middle class fashion it’s used, not new.  But damn nearly new!  It’s a 2002 Toyota Sienna with only 18,500 miles on it and is very clean as you can see:

It was a little more money than the 2000 model year ones we were looking at, but was a far better value.  So much better that we couldn’t pass it up.  Surely it’s only a matter of time before I’m back in diapers and soiling myself.  Hell, I already talk (babble?) to myself so I’m well on my way.

Wait a minute!  I’m okay because this is my wife’s ride, not mine.  I’m still driving a sporty bright red, two-door Honda Civic EX!  She’s the one who’s in this sad state, not me!  Right?  Yeah, that’s the ticket…
