dangerousmeta!, the original new mexican miscellany, offering eclectic linkage since 1999.

If you’re in Northern New Mexico,

keep an eye out for the Espanola Valley Humane Society’s new van.  Or should I say, new van wrap?  Done by my company.  Rarely do I brag about such things here, but we’re pretty happy with the result.  You’ll forgive me for crowing a bit, I’m sure.

Half Of U.S. Workers Don’t Use Vacation Time, Study Shows.  And those of us who work for ourselves, use even less.  A crime, really.

Psychology Today:

The math on Miss Motor Mouth.  Put that myth to bed.  Apparently the tendency to yap incessantly falls slightly to the male side of the aisle.  “Sexism is behind much of the willingness to believe that women talk too much, according to Deborah Cameron, a professor of language and communication at Oxford University, who points to ‘the belief that women really should be silent, as recommended by ancient authorities ranging from Sophocles to St. Paul.’”

WKRP DVD is not for diehards.  Same reason why it’s taking so long for “La Femme Nikita, the TV Series” to make it to DVD.  Copyrights on popular songs.  It may not always be an issue, though.

SF New Mexican:

Committees punt on short-term rental proposals.  Short term rentals tend to diminish the quiet enjoyment of life in older neighborhoods downtown.  New car(s), new people next door every few days?  I wouldn’t like it much either.

Washington Post, Reliable Source:

One of the last New Dealers in Washington is retiring, and Sanjaya Malakar is going to the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.  Makes for an interesting juxtaposition; I suppose FDR would have told Sanjaya, “When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”

NY Times Business:

Profits Up 69% at Google, Exceeding Expectations.  I kick myself, and kick myself, because I didn’t buy Google stock when it went public.  To hell with text ads, get-rich-quick weblog schemes.  That one move would have paid for many decades of weblogging, giving direct and honest financial reward for the years of prognosticating online.
