Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Jon Corzine's weaselly ways have hit a brick wall.
A federal judge has ordered Jon Corzine and other former MF Global officials to face a class-action lawsuit filed by customers of the failed futures firm.
But before denying the ex-New Jersey governor's attempt to escape the lawsuit, Judge Victor Marrero took him, his fellow defendants and the parties suing them as well to task.
Decrying the "wasteful and rancorous litigation" that he said has characterized the legal dispute between the commodity customers and former MF Global officials, Marrero blasted both for "failing to concede any ground to each other even in the light of clear, controlling case law that should generate agreement and consensus among people moved by reason, good faith and common sense."
Marrero particularly pointed a hard finger at Corzine and his co-defendants for continuing to deny any responsibility in the collapse of MF Global, which led to the disappearance of some $1.6 billion customer money from segregated accounts.
The firm fell into bankruptcy on Halloween 2011 after investors and ratings agencies were spooked by a massive and mostly undisclosed stake the firm had amassed in troubled European sovereign debt. The investment, built up during Corzine's short tenure as a chairman and chief executive officer, was a part of the former Goldman Sachs CEO's strategy to turn the struggling MF Global into a powerhouse investment bank.
Marrero praised the commodity customers' "compelling" account of the causes and events around the firm's collapse. "Yet MF Global's high-ranking officers, including several of the Defendants here, continue to assert... that it is not even plausible that anyone of them could bear any responsibility for any part of the harm MF Global's disintegration caused."
Judge Marrero ain't buyin' what Jon Corzine is shovelin'.
Sadly though, U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman still isn't interested. In his
office, evidence is only "compelling" when it can be used against enemies
of the regime. Since Jon Corzine is a big-time Friend of Barry, his Get Out
Of Jail Free card remains in good standing.
