Even a blogger needs to eat. This blog is primarily Charles' hobby. But if he is intent on continuing to woo the Hooter's waitresses in Chatanooga he needs something that pays.... wings don't come free you know. Here's a link to his day job where he works the education beat and, assuming he can't annoy enough people that way, is sometimes allowed to write opinion pieces.

Need perspective? Watson offers readers all they could possibly eat. For a unique view on current events, namely how they look from orbit, here's Chuck's Real-Time(ish) Satellite Imagery of Areas of Interest. Whenever it strikes his fancy, and there's good telemetry, Chuck will process and post near real-time images of locations in the news. Eminently engrossing.

Wanna get into the head of a Japanese salaryman? Why, for Chis'sakes?! Well, assumin' you do, feel welcome to check out the on-line journal of Campbell's English class. Everyday, a group of disaffected salarymen are required to spill out their inner-most thoughts about life, the universe and everything in broken English. Amazingly prosaic.

Tsunami news
Blogging some images and damage estimates at satblog.

I think it's worse than is being reported, which is bad enough.

Who Is Counting? It's amazing how the pro-war right has reacted to Spc. Thomas Wilson's grilling of Rummy on the armor, or lack of it, on his unit's vehicles. They've insulted Wilson and reporter Lee Pitts. Now, they are accusing them of either being liars or fools.

For the record, of those 830 vehicles, the armor on 459 is the jerry-rigged "hillbilly armor" Wilson described making in his question ro Rumsfeld. But you won't see that on Powerline, Instapundit, Limbaugh or Fox News.

Big Money Forbes reviews Bryan Alvarez's new book The Death of WCW.

Don't be fooled by the corporate failures of 2000 and 2001. Crazy accounting and boardroom graft aren't the big killers of business. Ineptitude is. The tale of how giant Time Warner got knocked out of the wrestling business by the smaller firm World Wrestling Entertainment is not only a lot of fun to read, it's a cautionary tale for entrepreneurs in any industry.

The book has also gotten high-praise from the wrestling press, so it's definitely on my "to read" list.

You Can Check Out Anytime You Like. Thanks to Domenic for a heads up on "Hotel Rwanda." I've read a few reviews so far, and it looks interesting. After the Christmas madness is over, I may have to take a trip to Atlanta to catch it.

Giving Her The Finger. I feel sorry for this guy. It isn't the decision I would have made, but maybe that's why I'm not married. I'm also not a military guy, but wearing a ring in combat doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

Private Accountability. Lew Rockwell raises some good points regarding proposals to "privatize" Social Security. Personally, I believe George W. Bush will leave office before any major changes in Social Security are made.

Let Me Be The First To Say It. It's the feel-good hit of the winter. I always knew Yellowstone would blow and take half the world with it before I get a chance to see Old Faithful.
