Apologies for Down Time

Dear Reader, My apologies for the recent downtime of the War on Bullshit blog. The traffic from my last post (12 Bonehead Misconceptions of Computer Science Professors) blew my bandwidth allocation and I didn’t notice until yesterday (thanks Michelle!).

IT seems that upgrading to WordPress 2.8 a few weeks ago broke my RSS feeds. It should be fixed now. *Please* let me know in the comments if you notice any problems.

Three Quotes That Prove Bush Can See the Future

As the world anxiously awaits the arrival of a new American president, welcome the ceaseless examinations of Dubya’s failed presidency: what will his legacy be? ask the reporters at CNN; I think historians will be kinder to him! cry the pundits at Fox; who the fuck is going to pay this douche to tour colleges […]
