Clever’s Newsish Items 9/14/2007

Good morning/afternoon/sabbatical!

Here’s what I’ve got for today:

Verizon sues FCC over 700MHz auction Open Access Provisions

Peninsula Neighborhood Draws Mixed Opinons – Has a decent history of the place included in the article, and some good insight in the comments. I really didn’t have an opinion on this until I drove out there and looked, and once I did, it seemed like a well intentioned but ill timed (and somewhat ill placed) idea. Expect this neighborhood to be an issue in the next elections. For those who want to see first hand, here is a link to the location. (Google maps)

Winamp to Challenge iTunes – Winamp Lite (free) is my player of choice. Something to be said for simplicity.

Alberto’s last dayTPM Muckraker snipped one of the most interesting parts of the article:

Almost every senior Justice Department official has resigned or announced plans to depart this year, leaving the department under the control of more than a dozen acting officials. More than a quarter of the nation’s U.S. attorneys are also temporary appointees, partly because of the mass firings that eventually had repercussions on Gonzales’s tenure.

DoD and ‘Homeland Security’ flunk audits – I know its not surprising, but it should be repeated until people actually understand what that means. It’s right there in the first paragraph.

For those who like a good civil rights debate, here’s your story for the day.

    It’s a virtual crapacopia! Actually it is a crapacopia. We should revolt and behead some motherfuckers. Cheers!
