Bits and Pieces for the Week of December 7 - 13

Layoff Daily gives practically up-to-the-minute data, by employer, on the day's announced layoffs. (Mike)

If predictions about the economy scare you, then DON'T read this article containing predictions by 8 leading economists. (Mike)

If you still don't think that the right-wing talking heads are truly fucked-up, check out this video from Joe Scarborough's show (at about the 1:55 mark). Lately I've concluded that the Conservative activists are crossover pedestrians entering through the portal of an alternate universe, and that the portal is located at Cheney's secret hideaway. (Mike)

Good news: P-E Obama includes the internet infrastructure as part of his economic stimulus plan. (Mike)

General (Ret.) Eric Shinseki is named to lead the Veterans Administration. Anyone who disagreed with and was fired because of Rumsfield and Wolfowitz earns my respect. That means he is a straight shooter, no bullshit. He also happens to be a 2 tour Veteran of Vietnam who lost part of his foot stepping on a land mine. (7of6)
