Crooks, science and games, oh my

Well, it seems that CitiBank doesn’t think I’m a crook after all. After going through quite a few hoops for them, they have finally credited me back my own money. It only took about a month and at least six phone calls, a letter and a fax to get it done. Maybe that doesn’t sound like much but it is when you are out almost two grand.

Ok, enough about me, let’s turn to some real crooks (at least according to the GAO). It seems President Bush and his buddies, violated federal laws by producing and distributing television news segments about the effects of drug use among young people.

The GAO said the videos “constitute covert propaganda” because the government was not identified as the source of the materials, which were distributed by the Office of National Drug Control Policy. They were broadcast by nearly 300 television stations and reached 22 million households, the office said.

So, that’s how they got elected (probably not). In other news, Saturn’s Moon Iapetus has a ‘belt‘. According to new pix and data from the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft.

At least it has something to hold up its pants. Now I am off to play some Half-Life2. Yes, I know its a PC game and I am pro Mac but its really cool and I built a new gaming PC just to play it (er, I mean, i built it for work. Yeah, work).
