Bob got a good howl the other day as he was doing his late night Internet cruising and came upon an amusing clip from the “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart. Seems Jon was up for a little mocking of Alaskan (R) State Senator Ted Stevens who was, and may still be in charge of the Internet. Jon had a video clip of him describing the Web as a series of “tubes”.
The clip was followed by a discussion between Jon and John Hodgman. He is best known as being “PC” one the Apple computer commercials. A very insightful discussion it was too.
What is scary is that Sen. Ted Stevens really hasn’t the faintest idea how the Internet works… And he is a man of power. No wonder Bob doesn’t sleep well! Take a look at the list of all committees and subcommittees on which Senator Stevens serves. Then you too can stay up with Bob and cruise the net.
Well, I guess I’ll sign off now and let you try to get some sleep. Sleep well in the knowledge that our country is in the hands of men and women like Sen. Ted Stevens. (Anybody got any extra Xanax?)
Rest well humans,
Ruby (yeah, and Bob)
