The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

If It Isn't True, It Should Be

A friend of mine, Jeff, sent this along, with the comment that he thinks it is too good to be made up. I tracked it down to a Sacrament, CA, TV Station.

Jeff's comment was that "Many a politician could take a lesson from this!!!"  He has spend a lot of time working with MADD, so I expect he has seen politicians of all stripes, so this is probably not party specific.

Library Waives Hudson River Pilot's Library Fees

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) ¯

Hero pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger is now every librarian's hero, too.

When the US Airways pilot's plane ended up at the bottom of the Hudson River on Jan. 15, so did a book he had checked out from the library at California State University, Fresno, through his local library near Danville.

Sullenberger contacted library officials and asked for an extension and waiver of overdue fees because the book was in the airliner's cargo hold.

Fresno State library officials said they were struck by Sullenberger's sense of responsibility and did him one better:  they're waiving all fees, even lost book fees, and placing a template in the replacement book dedicating it to him.

The book's subject?  Professional ethics.
This brought a smile to my face.
