Site-related stuff

Sometime in the next day, we should have our 10,000th visitor to Cannablog. Another thing is we also have the domain name “cannablog.org” now, and it already works, but currently it is still set to forward to cannablog.wordpress.com.

Better Another picture of billboard

Hat-tip to Sukoi.

I decided this one isn’t better than the one below, the color balance is off. But it is at least larger and centered in the frame.

Karl Rove gets his poll results from Diebold, perhaps

Partial transcript from an NPR interview with Karl Rove on Tuesday:

MR. ROVE: Yeah. Look, I’m looking at all these Robert and adding them up. And I add up to a Republican Senate and a Republican House. You may end up with a different math, but you’re entitled to your math. I’m entitled to “the” math.

MR. SIEGEL: I don’t know if you’re entitled to a different math, but you’re certainly entitled to —

MR. ROVE: I said you were entitled to yours.

Raw Story has the whole thing.

Can I have ten minutes of your time?

I might take a half a minute longer than that, if you want to watch the whole thing. I really recommend you do. Keith Olbermann is saying what needs to be said in America.

Richard Bruce Cheney admits water torture

No Blood For Hubris quotes the McClatchy news organization,

WASHINGTON – Vice President Dick Cheney has confirmed that U.S. interrogators subjected captured senior al-Qaida suspects to a controversial interrogation technique called “water-boarding,” which creates a sensation of drowning.

What is water-boarding?

Please note that these prisoners were never convicted of a crime, nor proven to be members of al Qaeda before a neutral judge. They were subjected to cruel and unusual punishment, torture, in violation of the Geneva Conventions, the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and the Constitution for the United States of America. They have been and continue to be denied due process of law. These are not armed hostile enemies, these are helpless prisoners in American custody.

Good medical advice: stop doing what hurts

So I went to the doctor to see about a problem I was having with my ear being sore and having fluid, and it turns out I have TMJ. Temporomandibular joint disorder is a really technical name for the fact that I like many people clench or grind my jaw sometimes. Or at least I used to. Now that I know what I’m doing, I’m paying more attention to it and I can stop myself when I start.

A doctor is never more helpful than when he or she merely tells you what is wrong and what you need to fix and then lets you go home and do that.

A day later and guess what? My ear doesn’t hurt. Just never connected the two before. Doesn’t mean the jaw is going to heal immediately, but immediate partial symptom relief is always a good start. And my wife says I still grind my teeth in my sleep so I’ll have to see what I can do about that.
