Morning Musings-This will have to be the most blogged item of the day-the Bush girls turn 21 today. Now they don't have to worry about getting busted for underage drinking. They settled the west coast longshoreman’s contract Sunday. Good quip (on an NPR news on the way in) from the head labor rep when asked if Christmas shipments were on target, he came back that freight's heading to Wal-Mart, too. Add another permalink for Jesus Gil, a Madrid-based blogger who covers a wide-range of topics. It took me a while to figure out what his URL signified-it's Atletico Rules-highlighting his fandom of Athetico de Madrid, one of the big athletic clubs in Spain. A few days ago, Fox has added pop-under ads-that's not going to make me that happy. Add that to the tabloidy nature of their coverage, and I'm tempted to start going to the Moonie Daily NewsWashington Times for my basic news. The ads that cheese me the most are the animated ones that are incorporated into the screen and make you watch them before getting to the text. A close second are the ads for an online travel agency-they put the top-right corner of the screen off-screen, so that you have to either close it out from the toolbar or slide it over to the left, revealing the X in the top-right corner.
