Dickie's Quickies

Planet Xtabay is offering 36 versions of the song "Louie Louie".

Boing Boing reports on the Citibank PIN/ATM scandal. A friend of mine told me yesterday that rumors are that this could become the new test case of what not to do when faced with a consumer crisis. Note: the crisis, according to Boing Boing, is spreading to other financial institutions.

White House appointees: Some get theft right; others get theft wrong. That's probably unfair to Rumsfeld, but when was he ever fair to me?

Speaking of Rummy, who most likely got his appointment because his name reminded the president that it was time for another shot, it seems his people are working with the British to close down the prison on Guatanamo. Someone at the White House probably figured out that it was becoming bad publicity. What to do? What to do?
Senior Bush administration figures have asked British officials for advice on how to hand alleged terrorists over to regimes with a reputation for torture and extra-judicial killings, such as Saudi Arabia, Algeria and Pakistan.
