TurboTax, as part of filing a California state tax return, just asked me if I was qualified for Ottoman Turkish Empire Settlement Payments? Umm, what are the odds that anyone who was re-settled from the Ottoman empire is still paying taxes in California? Is there a story here?

The problem with Bill’s logic is that SF runs a net loss paying more in federal taxes then its recieves in benefits (as do almost all major urban cities). Unlike say, the state of Wyoming.0. (Aside ca, politics, sanfran, st)
Heading up to Sebastopol in a few hours with the Odeo contingent, be back Sunday evening, in time to do some prep for Extreme Usability on Monday.
Interestingly I first met the wonderful/crazy folks behind Extreme Usability (and many of my close friends and colleagues), at Ruckus’ TechToolbox, a (radical) geek camp out, hosted in Sebastapol, a little over 3 years ago, less then 20 miles from the O’Reilly’s campus.

Its like a bad joke…
What does it mean to force workers back to work who got locked out? I have this image of the Longshoremen being squished through the chain link fences of the Oakland docks like dough from a cookie press, or cheese through a grater.
Hey! Did you the hear one about the dockworker strike in California?
Yeah, the management locked our the workers and refuses to let them back to work, but don’t worry the president is going to enforce Taft-Hartley, and end the strike.
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Everything you know is wong
- Its not a strike
- The Longshoremen aren’t opposed to technology
- ILWU has specifically said it would like expedite any shipments concerning national security but can’t get back on the docks
- The best way to have a mediation is not for the management to show up to it armed.
