Morning Linkage and Ranting

Replace multiple credit cards with one using a "programmable credit card". This is expensive- too expensive to catch on. It's also handy for fraud- you just need someone's credit card for a few seconds, and you have it forever- and they won't know until you use it enough to draw their attention.

Which makes me think about the false-fronts that were put on ATMs to scan people's cards and a camera to get their PINs.

In election news: "I'm offended by your ads." "No you're not. Don't be a baby." is roughly the conversation that relatives of the World Trade Center victims are having with Bush's campaign adviser. Bush's big campaign strategy is that you don't change presidents during a war. Unfortunately for Bush, the "war" he's discussing is undeclared, with unclear goals, no end in sight- not exactly things that keep a President in office. Now that we know who the Democratic canidate is (sadly, Kerry- I'll go so far as to say, "He'll be better than Bush", but maintain my fantasy that some day, someone will run a canidate that I actually approve of, as opposed to disapprove of less)- initial polls (for what they're worth- read, not much) put Bush and Kerry neck and neck. I only bring this up because usually the incumbent has alot more support.

Meanwhile, Iranian state radio claims "Osama Bin Laden was caught, to which Pakistan and the US reply, Shit no! We're not going to catch him till late October!
