Dickie's Quickies again

Hm, Hit and Run agrees - Bolton's an asshole. Love the libertarians.

Haaretz reports on a dust up in Iran over a news program that aired anti-Semitic statements. Apparently it offended a Jewish member of the Iranian parliament. Who knew?

I forgot to mention that Mozilla's excellent email program, Thunderbird, just got much better. There is now an extension to download POP mail (MSN, Yahoo, and the like). This extension only makes it easier to set up the program. The capability has been there for a while (I've been using it to download some Gmail, for instance). Note: if you use Thunderbird to download mail from Hotmail or MSN, the mail will be removed from the server on which it resides. So, if you like storing your mail on those MSN or Hotmail servers, then don't use the extension. When using Outlook, I can read the mail on the MSN site, but it remains on their servers. I was surprised to see it downloaded into Thunderbird and deleted from MSN. Not that this is going to stop me from seriously considering making the final transition, mind you, but it's something to consider.
