$16 DOJ Muffin Story is a Lie and other Bulleted Randomness

Mother Jones doesn’t like dubious math:

So did DOJ really pay $16 for muffins? Of course not. In fact, it’s obvious that someone quite carefully calculated the amount they were allowed to spend and then gave the hotel a budget. The hotel agreed, but for some reason decided to divide up the charges into just a few categories instead of writing a detailed invoice for every single piece of food they provided.
  • I don’t like the new toolbar at the top that WordPress implemented for its bloggers.  I felt like the last one was better organized.  This one breaks down links into too many sub-categories and some of them are redundant.
  • Anyone who remembers Myspace, i.e. over 21, remember Tom?  He’s got a Facebook.  And he’s apparently a Facebook corporate whore now.
  • Speaking of FB, it keeps making chatty noises at me when I’m not actually getting IMs.  I’m not sure what it means.  Is this the side news feed thing that everyone thinks is useless?  Whatever it is, it’s annoying.
  • I will not be live blogging the debate tonight, mostly because Fox says it’s going to be 2 hours long and I like not sitting on my ass for 2 hours.  It’s 9:30 and mostly it’s just been talking point after talking point, “You’re book lies!,” and a classic Fox-noxious crowd.
