I am a host of Late Late Night FDL music and cartoon posts in addition to spending most evenings behind the FDL backstage curtain flipping levers. Used to be a practicing heterosexual but now it appears that I am just a consultant. Avid reader since teaching myself how to read when four. Navy brat and first born so always thinking of the consequences. Double Irish so I usually got caught. Turned my misspent youth around and became that scary thing in your rear view mirror. Retired from the Fremont (California) Police Department after 24 years of sworn and non-sworn duties, including Patrol and the Crimes Against Persons Unit. Currently living on the North Oregon Coast with Token, cutest dog in the world (10 lb category), where I enjoy taking non-crime scene photographs, writing at my own blog, TwoTonGreenBlog, and working backstage at Firedoglake.

    Hi Suz. Looked in the queue myself and just noticed your entry. Tut is at his daughter’s wedding so probably too involved with that and/or the refreshments.

    G’evening, Suzanne, cmk, Andy. others I may have missed.

    On the Information Wars front of the shifting geopolitcal positions of our daze, an interesting new narrative is developing – the German goverment is reporting that the Bundestag computers, including those containing data on the Bundestag’s investigation into NSA spying, have been and are experiencing a major cyber attack:

    http://www.dw.de/german-media-cyber-attack-carried-out-on-bundestag/a-18452770

    This is a “breaking” narrative, so stay tuned … 🙂

    In these days of hackers, cyber attacks, spooks infiltrating all areas of the internet to do their part in shaping narratives, I find my thoughts returning again and again to the nuances and implications of Arthur Silber’s most recent essay “The Internet as You Know It Will Cease to Exist, Part II”:

    http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-internet-as-you-know-it-will-cease.html

    I wonder if the future of the internet so many have enjoyed so much is that it will become nothing more than a battlefield playground of spies v. spies v. even more spies while those of good intentions, of every stripe, move on to the next evolution of the post-internet world as we envision and create it.

    You and cmk are spinning good tunes. Were either of you DJs in an earlier incarnation?

    PS: I’m pretty astonished you “threw this together” with so little notice it was needed.

    Doin’ alright. We’re having a far longer Spring than usual. High in the mid-70°s, low humidity, light breezes. This is far from typical mid-May Deep South weather. While I’m enjoying the hell out if it, I’m troubled at all the “unusual weather” across the US – as well as across the world that I hear bits and pieces of despite the fact that the World’s Corporate Media seem to be colluding in suppressing comprehensive covverage of news of such impotance to all humans, not to mention way more critters and way, way more – by accepted consensus (always suspicious) – “non-sentinent” plants.

    That is pretty much what Silber’s essay is about, and he discusses what he foresees what that work-around might be.

    It’s not a bad thing and may very well be a better thing, for the proletariat anyway.

    Thanks for the clarification. Now I remember you!

    I myself was commenting as dancingrabbit on Disqust (this is my first time using it) until I discovered how to change my Disqust “display name” to my prior FDL name, which I’m commenting under now.

    Sorry to be so late responding to you. I can only spend so long clicking Disqust’s “Reload?” before I move along to a functional site, which is how I apparently missed your reply.
