How did we know the College Humor thing was going to come up again?
As noted by the OWH, the state vote counters on the new (gawd awful) license plates are now looking at recounting, based on the CollegeHumor.com’s intervention.
As noted on their site:
The state government claims that our votes weren’t counted, but it’s pretty clear that no one would vote for that power-point-presentation worthy design because they liked it. They also claim that Collegehumor votes came in evenly over all the choices. We ruin a lot of polls in the hotlinks section. They usually display the results, and I can assure you that, that never happens.
Lee Terry was recently noted as a “House Heavyweight” on Telecom by the National Journal’s Congress Daily.
More than two dozen other lawmakers and administration officials shine, and while they don’t command as much attention as this power trio, they are well-positioned to leave their imprimatur on public policy…
Not One to Tarry: Rep. Lee Terry, R-Neb., joined with Boucher in co-sponsoring legislation to revamp the Universal Service Fund when Terry was in the majority. He’s now returning the favor with Boucher in charge of the Communications subcommittee.
Rock on Lee.
We don’t really get the point of it all, but Leavenworth Street is on Twitter, if you’re into it and want to “follow” us (or whatever the hell the latest slang is for the latest web obsession).
We don’t Tweet (shoot me) very often, but we do occasionally note new blog posts there, or updates. Frankly, it’s just another hassle for another thing to update, but whatever.
Finally, this weekend, take a moment out of your Memorial Day to remember the men and women of our Armed Forces who let us sleep soundly in our hammocks because they’re sleeping in tents or foxholes or in the sand.
