R.I.P. George Carlin

I was really bummed out to hear this morning that George Carlin died of heart failure yesterday at 71.  George was a comic genius like none other.  His very matter of fact, casual observations of simple subjects were always insightful and more importantly truthful.  George could find the absurdity of most any situation and most often in ones that the rest of us would take for granted.  We'll all miss you George.

I understand the need for CAPCHA (because of the annoying scumbag spammers) and I'm used to seeing some with less than clear images or squiggly characters.  But this one takes the cake…

Please enter all letters having a CAPCHA Cat below.


Seriously?  This is what it now takes to avoid spammers and robots?  It took me a few tries, but I finally deciphered this as being "L9DC".  Insanity.

Loren Feldman on Comments

Loren Feldman has dead-on take on blog comments entitled Comments Are Not Conversation:

I used to get relevant comments on occasion, but it's pretty much a one-way street for this blathering idiot.  I've used outbound trackbacking, but I don't recall that I've ever had a legitimate trackback to one of my entries.  At this point comment and trackbacks seem to be giant spam magnets more than anything else.  But in any case, I do keep my comments here and don't plan on outsourcing them anymore than I've outsourced the rest of the things on my site.
