2/16    In spite of GOP claims, there is very little pork in the
        stimulus bill:

        \_ GOP lie and exaggerate?  Never!
        \_ oh?   http://tinyurl.com/cpzfnf (WaPo)
           \_ So you think that spending on High Speed Rail is pork?
              \_ It's not "stimulus", that's for sure.  The spending won't
                 apply to the short term.
                 \_ I don't know about that. A lot of money could be spent on
                    CAs high speed rail project in the next couple of years
                    and I don't know what the condition of the other 11 projects
                    mentioned, but I assume they could be accelerated as well.
                    They are certainly not pork, in any case.

2/16    Lea, what does Google security know by now? Should I talk to you
        under a different channel? I can either spill my beans on Valleywag
        or ask you to just vent for me. Either way, I really need to vent.
        If you don't want to help me vent, it's cool. I'll just cross
        reference Soda names with Moma.         -unhappy borg mon
        \_ No one's tracking anyone, no need to get paranoid. I just
           meant that there are ways of telling whether someone's a
           Googler. Anyway, if you are, then email me at chialea@gmail
           or give me a call on my cell. Of course I'll try to help.

        \_ make sure kchang isn't on the security team
           \_ why not? did http://csua.com have a big leak? or is it bc he's crazy?
           \_ agreed that kchang is crazy but nickkral is the one on the
              security team.
        \_ despite what you hear on the wags there are still a lot of
           Google loyalists out there. The Google has eyes and ears,
           and I'd keep it low unless you want to get fired.
        \_ Um, what? can someone fill me in? -t

2/16    Bush not the worst President ever
        http://tinyurl.com/bu2o36 (Yahoo News)
        \_ According to CSPAN, so, of course, no one will watch.
        \_ Agreed, Buchanan and Pierce were THE WORST. Don't you
           guys remember how bad they were?

2/16    Do you find email to be "not a good means of communication" between
        friends?   Discuss.
        \_ girls really like the IM.
           \_ there's no diff between IM and a really short email?
        \_ current email spam:non-spam ratio is about 10,000:1, I pretty much
            dont bother with email any more.
            \_ Have you heard of spam filtering? It's been working pretty well
               for at least the last few years.
