It’s pretty typical that Dave Winer put a huge complaint on Scripting News about O’Reilly’s investment in Pyra, but then neglected to point equally as prominently to Tim O’Reilly’s response to that complaint. This is the same man who proclaims that personal attacks should be kept on one’s own site yet has felt just fine about contributing his own brand of nastiness to the discussion group here; I’m with Dan and Cam on this one.

I can’t express how offensive it is that, in the year 2000, shit like this continues to occur. At least the Dodgers responded adequately; I hope that it’s all the other ushers that have to go through sensitivity training, since the usher involved should have been fired outright.

I want this.

Good and bad evening in the ER tonight; I sewed up a lower eyelid (the poor kid pulled a baby carriage over on himself) and a forehead (tripped and hit a metal-rimmed stair), both cool things to have done, but I also dealt with an eight year-old who had been discovered by her grandmother being forced to perform nastiness on a neighborhood boy. All things considered, she was actually doing great, and it worked out that we have no reason to be concerned for her physical health, so I guess that’s one less thing to worry about for her parents. Ugliness, though, and makes me wonder what kind of parents raised this neighborhood boy.


Hey, I didn’t see Tim’s response.

Lighten up Jason. Tim didn’t send me any kind of link. I’ll go read it now.

Apparently, lesbians kissing in public is a dangerous and lewd act that requires eight beefy security guards
