Mistaken identity

by on January 7, 2003 @ 5:55 am

So when I get on my work computer this morning, I’m greeted by my personalized Yahoo page. At the top is the “lead photo”. In it is a picture of 5 men, and the story saying FBI Alert for 5 Men Reportedly Based on Hoax. I thought I recognized something, so I clicked on the story.

The man on the top right is the same man as mentioned in this story. I know there’s no picture there now, but trust me.

Now what gets me is, there’s NO mention of this mistake in the lead story today. None. Just that the photos are a hoax. I’m no bleeding heart, but I’ve got to agree with a quote out of the second story… “The American government and the FBI should apologize to him.” And we should. Because that’s what we tell our children to do on the playground when they make a mistake and accidentally knock another kid down. But you think an apology is beneath us when we accidentally plaster an innocent man’s face across the world? I’ll never understand right-wing idiots (not that the left is much better).

Word, y’all. I ain’t dead. I know, it hurts you to find that out. But hey, at least I know how to close my blockquote tag, and that’s why they keep me around here.

On to happier things, ain’t it a bitch when you’re just minding your own business and get served with lawsuit papers? Yes, I’ve joined the ranks of executives, publicists, and everyone living in the state of California: I’ve been sued. In reality, it’s one of those things where you get into a 4-car accident, and you’ve got a year to sue. Now the fact that the person suing wasn’t hurt much on the scene and is in fact– how do I put this delicately– an African-American female of limited means, whereas I’m a guy driving an expensive car with a 1mil insurance rider; that has nothing at all to do with the fact that I’m being sued.

And onto another subject,

Oh wait, if I had a real car to begin with, I wouldn’t need to do that shit.

Around here (Louisiana) people tend to have one of three attitudes towards left and right blinkers.

  1. Fuck ’em. Let the other poor hapless bastards have to do a Vulcan mind meld with me to figure out what the fuck I’m going to do.
  2. I’ll put my blinker on when I turn my wheel, as though the blinker is a part of the turning procedure, and not a request to get over. I will stop in the middle of the road to turn or change lanes, but because I don’t put my blinker on until I’m halfway through the turn, no one knows what the fuck I’m doing.
  3. My blinker is a warning to everyone else on the road… I think that just because my blinker is on, that I’m ENTITLED to change lanes, and will honk my horn at you and become upset when you blow your horn at me or slam into me because I was a fuckwad

I fucking HATE stupid people.

[ Baby’s Belly Holds Key to Starting Car ]
I’ll bet she sues the car company.

[ Bad Sex Prize Up for Grabs ]

[ Police Seize ‘Obscene’ Bin Laden T-shirt ]
They think it matters enough to say that “Police didn’t mention what the sex act was”.

[ Boy Found after 230-Mile Train Journey ]
And this is of course ANYONE’S fault but the mother’s.

Well this is certainly a unique way to try to get out of a drug charge. What’s pitiful is that one court already threw out the drug charge b/c of this. Fuckin idiots. The world is being overrun by idiots.

Also, I really hate it when someone (Microsoft) insults my intelligence.

Clinton did it, so why can’t we?

Yeah, I’m still alive. Yeah, I’m still working here. No, I have no clue why Sharkey hasn’t fired me yet. Who is the most impartial and accurate polling service out there today? Why it’s got to be Playboy of course! So then it comes as a complete surprise that a poll run by Playboy would find that people are having sex with interns! Oh my gosh! Next thing you’ll tell me that Jimmy Swaggart has been monogamous since he married his wife!

The Hurricane

So we’ve got the hurricane coming. Isidore. I thought it was spelled “Isadore”. If memory serves me, that was Friz Freeling’s first name, and he spelled it with an A. Yes, Isidore is a male name, and it’s the name of the Tropical Storm / Hurricane that is threatening us down here on the gulf coast. Last time I checked, it was going to bowl right between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. What fun. No skule, no work, and I get to be holed up at home with no running water and likely no internet. You northerners can have your “snow days”. I’ll take my hurricane, thank you very much.
