GM seems to be racing toward something else

So if I understood everything correctly from the article in the 6/12 Wall Street Journal titled “Lawyers Race GM to find black boxes“…

* GM executives ordered their engineers to secretly change a core vehicle component for new vehicles after they discovered its’ critical failure rate, but did not disclose this critical failure rate on existing vehicles to the public or to the NHTSA.

* GM executives are currently ordering their employees and persons in their employ to search and recover evidence (“black boxes”) from multiple mortal accidents, but apparently are not returning this evidence to the accident victims or to the NHTSA.

* GM executives refused to allow the full disclosure of the data content of those “black boxes” involved in mortal accidents to the NHTSA until February of this year.

An organized activity sanctioned by upper management to obscure and withhold evidence? Evidence that could potentially tie the multiple deaths of individuals to the permissive knowledge that upper managers have?

Has GM ever heard of RICO?

A question about the FBI’s “stingray” : a letter to the WSJ

After reading the Wall Street Journal’s story on the FBI’s Stingray use, I thought I would throw in my two cents on the matter in a letter to the editor.

Eesh. I’m turning into one of those people.

Anyhow….

———

Regarding the FBIs “stingray” tracking device (Thursday Sept. 22 p1): What would happen if I, as a private citizen, built a device to impersonate a cell phone tower and drove around my city intercepting signals from cell phones?

Regardless of my intent, I think I would be arrested and charged with several FCC and Patriot Act violations.

Since this device would be illegal for a private citizen to use, I believe law enforcement should have to obtain a warrant to use this device themselves. A warrant that specifically states the number or name being searched for, the area to be canvassed, and the reason for initiating the search.

Just because it is easy to use a piece of technology does not make legal to do so in and of itself.

Wall Street Journal – Final South Texas delivery resolution

I just got an email from the the Senior Manager of Customer Care at The Wall Street Journal this morning.

The solution to that delivery problem I’ve been having?

“Dear Subscriber,

I am writing to inform you about changes in our production and delivery operations that will impact the delivery of your Journal subscription.

At Dow Jones and Company, publisher of The Wall Street Journal, we work very hard to provide our customers with the highest quality delivery service.  However, recent changes in transportation logistics have made it impossible to continue delivering your Monday – Saturday Journal on the day of publication.  Effective for the issue date of June 9, 2011, your weekday Journal subscription will be delivered by carrier or by the United States Postal Service, as it is today, but one day after publication date.

Well, shit.

Getting the newspaper in the mail? And assuming they mail it immediately on the day of production, that’s still going to take 3 or 4 days after the publication date to get here.

I wanted the newspaper on the same day it was printed. That’s why I skipped out on the Washington Post and the New York Times postal mail delivery and chose The Wall Street Journal home delivery. After all, old news is… well, old news.

The email also had a link to a 30 day subscription to WSJ online, but if I wanted that format, I would’ve signed up for it on my Kindle.

So that’s the end of it. The only “real” newspaper’s delivery in deeeep south Texas is now kaput.

The fact I can’t get a real newspaper delivered every day to my home address tells me three things…

#1: Transportation logistics? That’s the reason the newspaper quit this area? There’s no internet-and-print option to a local newspaper printer? They’re still delivering newspapers on trucks? I’m going to feel pretty rotten if I was the only reason some poor semi truck driver had to come all the way down to the Texas valley!

Which brings me to…

#2: There’s a wide open market down here for a company that will print and deliver “real” newspapers. The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The LA Times and (shudder) USA TODAY are newspapers I’ve read before that are completely unavailable down here in the Texas valley. The local rag is a sad joke, and maybe a “city hub” newspaper printer could sell and distribute a bundle of the top 5 papers to the local schools, libraries, bookstores, etc.

#3: I may need to move since no major newspaper delivers to the area I live in. That’s a pretty big “WARNING! DANGER WILL ROBINSON!” sign right there.

Seriously, thanks for trying Wall Street Journal. It was great while it lasted. I’ll get your print edition again. Someday.

No Wall Street Journal for 26 consecutive issues!

Just a quick status update on the original Wall Street Journal delivery article. As of May 2nd, I haven’t received one single newspaper. That’s 26 consecutive Wall Street Journals I’ve missed because of “production issues”. (I get M-Sat only. Sundays were never an option and there was no Memorial Day delivery.)

Every damn time I call customer service I am told I will be credited the issue, and the missed issue will be delivered with tomorrow’s paper. The “urgent matter” is also escalated to the regional distributor for kicks.

I’m tired of paying for something I haven’t received. I’ll keep posting these updates going until this mess is resolved.

Texas valley subscribers beware! Delivery of the Wall Street Journal is not reliable!

No Wall Street Journal for 22 days. Major fail continues.

Today I was actually told something different! That my account was in “severe” status. Wow. Maybe if I keep it up I’ll get to “critical” and then maybe “terminal”!

I’m tired of paying for something I haven’t received. I’ll keep the updates going until this mess is resolved.

Before getting a taser gun, police have to be tased themselves. Why not apply this to waterboarding?

I just had a random thought.

Police officers all have to be tased before they are issued a taser gun, right? (Proof HERE and HERE and HERE)

This serves quote a few purposes. First, it shows the police officers how a taser can take the wind right out of your sails (IE: how much it friggin’ hurts!) and it also shows them how a taser affects a human body.

Is being tased survivable? Oh yes. As a matter of fact, you get back to “normal” very rapidly as soon as the current stops.

Is it justified to get tased for prolonged periods? Day and night? Ask someone who has been tased that question. My money is on “hell no”.

Can a taser kill you? Yes. It definitely can. (HERE and HERE and HERE)

So why not waterboard every “interrogator” that’s still over at the “still-not-closed-for-two-years” Guantánamo Bay so they can see how waterboarding affects a human body and if it’s justifiable to waterboard someone for prolonged periods? It works for tasers. Why not for waterboarding?

I bet if every politician who still approves waterboarding got just a 30 second dip, they would very quickly get on their high horse and make it a point to outlaw this form of torture. I bet if everyone who says waterboarding is OK actually got waterboarded themselves, the talk show/blog brigade would be focusing on nothing but outlawing this form of torture.

So how do you get waterboarding back into the spotlight? Maybe I should set up a “traveling waterboard” show and offer $1,000 for every five seconds on the board to anyone’s favorite charity if they take the dip? Show up with the show at carnivals, malls, WalMarts and Sunday-morning church parking lots for starters!

Ah, but wait… if an individual waterboards someone, they will be prosecuted for “domestic assault, false imprisonment, and making terrorist threats” (HERE and HERE).

A letter from Damon Swank from Torrance, Calif in the 11/23 edition of the Wall Street Journal makes a perfect closing point…

Is America Becoming Ruthless, Imperial?

“The Verdict on Holder” (Review & Outlook, Nov. 19) illustrates the decay of American principles of freedom and justice.

In better times, our nation comforted itself with the warm blanket of moral superiority. We disparaged whose nations conducting “show trials” and “kangaroo courts” which incarcerated prisoners without charges, trials and verdicts. In our view, such nations were morally and ethically primitive beasts.

How the tide has changed. It now suits American convenience to confine prisoners indefinitely without charges. We now seek that forum and those rules of evidence that will maximize the likelihood that defendants will be found guilty of all charges and will receive the punishment the government seeks. In the unlikely event of an acquittal, nothing will change. The condemned will remain imprisoned.

We have forfeited the moral high ground. Many nations now consider America to embody the ruthless, amoral traditions of torture and imperial conduct we formerly deplored. Ethically adrift, seeking results without regard to methods, we are morphing ourselves into pariahs.”

The Catholic church converted a portion of a sacred crypt to a nightclub?

The article from the Wall Street Journal seemed sensationalistic enough. “Tales From the Crypt: To Attract New Blood, Church Joins Club Scene”

Oh brother, I thought. Now what? Did the Catholic church open a nightclub in some major city with some stupid “Twilight” theme?

Nope. Nothing so tame.

“The crypt of the Basilica di San Carlo al Corso near St. Peter’s Square has boasted tombs of cardinals for centuries… Rev. Maurizio Mirilli, head of youth ministry in Rome’s Catholic Church, has converted a section of the crypt into a nightclub with a live-music stage and a bar stocked with beer, Prosecco and other wine. Father Mirilli has christened the new watering hole GP2, short for “Giovanni Paolo II,” as the late Polish pope was known in Italian.”

OK. So blasting music among the crypts of hundreds of years of entombed cardinals while getting plastered isn’t somewhat…. I don’t know… inappropriate? Bad ju-ju? Creepy?

Oh, and speaking of bad ju-ju….

“Scrawled across the bar was a biblical passage from the Gospel of St. John, quoting Jesus Christ: “Give me a drink.”

Um… the article itself points out that Jesus Christ was referring to water. He didn’t push through some saloon doors, mosey up to the bar and ask for a brewsky.

Beer, disaronno, whiskey sours, dirty martinis, jack and coke… the only thing that ever goes with these things is maybe a small snack. That’s it. Sacred crypts with centuries of dead cardinals laying around do nothing to enhance my drinking experience whatsoever, thank you very much.

The article is in the “free” section of the Wall Street Journal’s website.

Buy a brand name? An auction for names of retailers who are no longer in business

Have you ever wondered what happened to the names of retailers that are no longer in business? Retailers like “General Cinema”, “Handy Dan”, “Meister Brau”, “Handi-Wrap” and “Braniff International” to name a few? What would you do if you could purchase those names and use them however you want?

A recent ad in the Wall Street Journal (Wednesday November 10th pC13) has the title BRAND NAME AUCTION, and apparently is going to let you do just that!

According to the TERMS page, you can bid in person on the day of the auction (December 13th @ the Waldorf Astoria in NYC) or you can enter a proxy bid through the internet. You can also download the bidder’s information packet here to request more specific information on the items (NOTE: PDF)

The auction ain’t gonna’ be cheap. On the TERMS page, there is a “$10,000 as initial earnest money” deposit required for the high bidders.

But if you’re a company looking for a “hook”, or a businessman looking to resurrect a brand name, this is actually a pretty great opportunity.

  • Buy “General Cinema”, setup a production company under that name, and upsell independent movies to big-screen theaters. Maybe setup a web-based video-on-demand service, too.
  • Buy “Braniff International” and start a private charter-jet service with four-city service : NYC, Dallas, Vegas, and LA. (No invasive body scanners, TSA, or idiot airlines to mess with!)
  • Buy “Meister Brau” and sell your custom beer nationwide.
  • Buy “Victrola” and release music that is no longer under under copyright as “classic” compilation downloads & CDs.
  • Buy “Kinckerbockers” and offer a children’s product line (clothing, diapers, toys, etc) for resell along the lines of AVON. Local reps show the “Kinckerbockers” catalogue to friends, buy the product wholesale (like AVON) and keep the upsell profits for themselves (like AVON).

Dammit. I need to be on that TV show “The Apprentice” already. I’ll stomp all over everyone. Call me Donald Trump!

The full rights and legaleese for the auction can be found at this link.
