What will you be doing at 7:07:07 on 07/07/07? June 30, 2007Posted by daveintexas in Current Events.
It will be next Saturday morning, so I’ll probably be at work or on my way to work. I usually put in 2 or 3 Saturdays a month. It’s nice and quiet and you can get a lot done.
On a completely different topic, laptop computer theft in the state of Ohio is apparently a big problem.
I admit I was not aware this was a challenge for Ohioans, Ohi-yo-un, Oh Hi Yo, yans.
An observation, from Governor Strickland’s spokesperson:
“State-owned and issued equipment is being misplaced or lost and stolen, and fundamentally that’s not good,” said Keith Dailey, a spokesman for Gov. Ted Strickland.
I don’t know what Ted is paying Keith, but whatever it is he deserves a raise. The word choice here is a little unusual. “Fundamentally”? He must be talking “the basics”, something we can all agree on. Theft = bad. Ok.
The focus of the article is on the theft of state-owned laptop computers, and not necessarily those owned by private citizens. So I suppose there’s no reason to panic — yet!
We also learn that several state employees had laptops stolen from their cars, some while stopped at turnpike service centers.
Anybody know the etymology of the word “turnpike”? We don’t use that one much here.
Anyway, in other news, fire is hot, clouds are vaporized moisture in the atmosphere, and the Cowboys aren’t going anywhere this season either.
