This also rocked my world

First an earthquake, now this! My beloved Ted Stevens, Senator from Alaska, has been indicted for lying about gifts he received from Veco, an energy company.

The indictment says the home improvements provided by Veco and its chief executive officer, Bill Allen, a “personal friend of Stevens,” included a new first floor, a new garage, a new first- and second-story wraparound deck, new plumbing and new wiring.

This makes me sick. I mean, this man has worked tirelessly to save the series of tubes that is the Internet. He’s built bridges that has helped literally tens of people travel freely. And now people are persecuting him! Ridiculous!
