This comment is write only, but I need to vent.

Newt Gingrich has done nothing but pour gasoline and a lit match on the whole "Islam is invading our country!!" stupidity.

It's one thing for some douchebag TV "Personality" like Glenn Beck to produce verbal diarrhea, but when a supposedly rational (for loose definitions of such) people of power Godwin themselves on the Sunday morning political shows is entirely another.

People like him seriously frighten me.

I have wrapped coils of wire around the petrified spinning dust of Roger Williams and I plan to power the whole of North America just as soon as I get the contract signed with National Grid.

Submission + - Canonical Lets 'Satanists' Sell Ubuntu-esque Gear 3

An anonymous reader writes: is reporting that the Ubuntu Satanic Edition and Canonical have had a bit of a wrangle over the creative use of the Ubuntu logo in products the Ubuntu Satanic Edition developers were selling at CafePress. Canonical had initially sent them a cease-and-desist letter, but, after Jono Bacon, the Ubuntu Community Manager, realised what was happening, that policy was reversed. The story is interesting because it shows that even a company promoting a product as "tolerant" and "diversity focused" as Ubuntu can run into problems when confronted with things that challenge that tolerance and diversity. Here, Canonical has chosen to view the Ubuntu Satanic Edition as a parody of the Christian and Muslim editions of Ubuntu in order to grant the USE developers the right to use the trademarked logo.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
