Worthy cause of the day and bonus

Greetings again.

We have another worthy political cause for you while R crunches away. Here’s the canned text:
    Dear Friend,

    Republicans want to go “nuclear” and turn the Senate into a rubber stamp for President Bush. They want to silence Senate Democrats - the one remaining check on President Bush’s power. If they can do away with debate in the Senate, they can get whatever they want – right-wing Supreme Court Justices, Social Security privatization and tax breaks for the wealthy that will plunge us deeper in debt.

    But Senate Democrats are going to fight them every step of the way. And this fight will be different than any other fight in the history of the Senate – because it will include all of us. Senate Democrats need our help, and that is why they are using your names and comments as part of our debate on the floor of the United State Senate. Imagine all of us standing together in the Senate Chamber during this debate.

    Stand with Senate Democrats today . I did and you should too:
Please go show politicians that we do care what they do. Thank you.

As a bonus, I’d like to share what I’ve learned about the pricing of Mac OS X 10.4 so as to perhaps save someone else some money which could go towards more useful purposes. is offering Mac OS X 10.4 for $35 off ($94.99). This is the option I went with, since they start charging full price after May 31. After my copy shipped (and I should get it today, God willing), I found out about two less expensive alternatives. The Apple Store for Education is offering Mac OS X 10.4 for $69.00. (This is only open to students and educators.) Micro Center Online is offering Mac OS X 10.4 for $50.00 off ($79.99). This offer ends on June 5. In any case, maybe I can now get down to babbling about cool widgets...
