Worse Than Watergate

From an interview in today’s Salon.com with Nixon White House counsel John Dean:

As Richard Nixon’s White House counsel during the Watergate scandal, John Dean famously warned his boss that there was “a cancer on the presidency” that would bring down the administration unless Nixon came clean. In his new book, “Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush,” Dean warns the country that the Bush administration is even more secretive and authoritarian than Nixon’s — in fact, he writes, it’s “the most secretive presidency of my lifetime.”

“To say that the [Bush-Cheney] secret presidency is undemocratic is an understatement,” he adds. “I’m anything but skittish about government, but I must say this administration is truly scary and, given the times we live in, frighteningly dangerous.”

…obviously, this is because the former White House counsel is a Liberal with an axe to grind and is just trying to help the Democrats.

Or something.

Another great tidbit, about Bush advisor Karl Rove:

…the first time I heard the name Karl Rove was when I was asked if I knew anything about him by one of the Watergate special prosecutors who was investigating campaign dirty tricks. I didn’t have any knowledge. But I recalled that question when working on this book, and located a memorandum in the files of the Watergate prosecutor’s office that indicates they were asking others as well about Rove. Based on my review of the files, it appears the Watergate prosecutors were interested in Rove’s activities in 1972, but because they had bigger fish to fry they did not aggressively investigate him.

Wake up, America. Please.


Server Down

You might have noticed this page took a ridiculously long time to load because it was trying to grab images from my Adamantentertainment.com server. This is because my server is down, apparently. I checked with another site that I know is hosted by the same folks, and that site is down as well, so apparently the problem is at their end.

Unfortunately, the upshot of this is that I have zero access to my adamantentertainment.com email (and the email that I also handle for RPGNow, which I run through my adamant mailserver). If you need to reach me, use my personal email address. If you don’t have my personal address, wait until the Adamant site is back up.



I just changed my GMS-atar over there on the sidebar, so that it more accurately reflects my appearance. Yesterday, I walked into my local Great Clips and had them hack off 2+ years of hair growth. Yes, that’s right–the mane is gone, and in it’s place is a shorter, spikier cut that Laura assures me is much more flattering.

I’m in my mid-30s. Flattering is Good.
