    i did a clean install of panther the other night on the ibook… amazing improvement in performance, like a new machine! for the most part, things are working perfectly, especially after i went back in and configured stuff to my liking. looks like there were some under-the-hood changes, as is the case with any upgrade. one thing in particular came up when trying to send email from mail.app.

    just when i thought i’d gotten away from DC and all the politics, i made the mistake of reading CNN on the train… looks like politicians really do think they know more than doctors, and of course the bush brothers are right in the thick of it all…

    first, jeb orders a comatose woman’s feeding tube to be reinserted, overruling a court order that she be allowed to die. the woman has been in a “persistent vegetative state since suffering heart failure in 1990” and the feeding tube was removed 6 days ago at the request of her husband. her doctors say she is “responsive but shows no significant cognitive ability” and that she likely won’t ever recover. so, why keep her alive? her parents think that her husband wants to take the insurance money and run off with another woman. crazy.
