I'm not much of a follower of the "guitar hero" thing, but I'll make an exception for this guy.

Pachelbel's Canon:

He's a college kid in Taiwan, and that's his own arrangment. More here, I believe his own compositions.

I work in the same building as Congresscritter Jim Kolbe. You may have been following the story that he knew something about Mark Foley verbally diddling House pages as early as 6 years ago.

You might have been following it, but I haven't. I was aware of it, but I give it just about zero importance.

Anyway, there was a camera crew out in the parking lot yesterday, and they asked me "What do you think of this?" Which is, first of all, a stupid and pointless question. But I guess when you're fishing for "Clinton did it too!", or "The Republicans are just covering up for each other!", you have to troll with the widest net you can find.

The story is here. My quote is:

Others like Kyle Bennett still have questions.

"I don't know what to think. I don't know what was going through his mind. I don't know what he knew at the time. Sounds like to him, it was a rumor."

That's about what I remember saying, so no problem there (though I think I said "I don't know what was in his mind - an important connotative distinction, at least). There's simply no way to draw any meaningful conclusions from the available information, and besides, it's just congressmen, not anybody important.

My only complaint is the "still have questions" line. I don't have any questions. Just because there's something I don't know doesn't imply that it's something worth having questions about. I don't care one way or the other.

The story aired, with my 8 seconds of fame, on the Six O'Clock news. Sorry, the video is not available.

With apologies to Aerosmith

Ch' dum dum dum, Kimmie what have you done
ch' dum dum dum, it's the sound of my bomb
ch' dum dum dum, Kimmie what have you done
ch' dum dum dum, it's the sound, it's the sound

Kimmie's got a bomb
Kimmie's got a bomb
whole world's come undone
lookin' straight at the sun

what did Dear Leader do
now Nork's gone atomic too
they say that Kimmie is a genius
and his thinking is so very slick
but man he's just a munchkin
who built himself a big bomb
to make up for his tiny dick

Kimmie's got the bomb
Kimmie's got the bomb
dark ages just begun
now ElBaradei's on the run

tell me now it's untrue
what did Dear Leader do
he cracked a little bitty atom
the man has got to be insane
he wants to unify Korea
but his verbal diarrhea
is just cover for a damaged brain

run Europe, run away from the truth
run UN, run away from the truth
run away, run away
run, run away

E=mc squared
he thinks it's all got us scared
but we'll just take him down quickly
and put a bullet in his brain
he put his people under his yoke
the guy is such a joke
even his bomb is so very lame

Kimmie Kimmie, what's the problem
guess it wouldn't light
was it your imcompetent scientists
makes you cry at night
