Someone today said "we use that product here" when they meant that they used the product at the company that he just left. It would be nice if English had a past tense, and probably a future tense, for "here".
The Ironic TImes is often funnier than The Onion, the advertising in it is much less obnoxious, and it comes out a day earlier. The best part is that most of the headlines are taken directly from regular newspapers, making it all the more deadly.
For those of us who live in Santa Cruz, this is certainly good news. We had an election for county supervisor, and the two front-runners are well-known liberals^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hprogressives. Over the weekend, one of the two, Chris Krohn, sent out two mailers that could only be described as attacks on the other, Neal Coonerty. In an act of desperation, Krohn accused Coonerty of completely ridiculous things in an effort to tarnish Coonerty's reputation.
Not only did the attack ads fail, they caused people who were going to vote for Krohn to switch their votes to Coonerty, at least from what I heard from people on Monday. On Tuesday morning, I saw a lawn sign of Krohn's that had a red circle with a slash through it on a well-trafficed corner. (FWIW, I wasn't going to vote for either of them, but decided to vote for Coonerty because of Kron's attack.)
Hopefully, Santa Cruz never hears from Krohn again. Even if his politics match those of the majority of the community, his personal ethics certainly don't.
