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.

Wanna buy an ad on Time Warner Cable? It'd better not have any scary guns in it!
In the wake of the Newtown massacre, Time Warner Cable is trying something new when it comes to the commercials it broadcasts.
"We've created a policy that effectively bans visual images of automatic weapons and visual images of weapons pointed at people," company spokesman Alex Dudley told WCBS 880 reporter Monica Miller on Friday.
"We felt that this, at this time, particularly in the wake of some of the recent incidents, that this was a policy that we felt strongly about," he said.
Airing right now on Time Warner channel 36, Goodfellas. Nope, no scary guns in that movie, nosirree! On channel 46? A CSI: Miami and Criminal Minds mini-marathon. Good thing there are no scary guns in shows like that either. Later today, when the kids get home from school, they can settle down to watch Law and Order on channel 16, or screen A Bronx Tale.
Curiously, Alex Dudley's sanctimonious preening doesn't extend to the TV programming his company chooses to air, complete with "visual images of weapons pointed at people."
Do you suppose WCBS 880 reporter Monica Miller "forgot" to ask him about that?
Of course she did! I think that's called "journalism." Isn't it?
