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.

LIPA, whose board is chosen by the governor and lawmakers, contracts with National Grid for service and maintenance.
Asked Monday about LIPA board vacancies he hasn't filled and whether he takes responsibility for what's happening there, Cuomo called the authority a holding company that became "an intergovernmental political organization."
But don't worry America. The "intergovernmental political organization" that'll run Obamacare? I'm sure it'll be different. Totally focused on you. Dedicated public servants, working tirelessly to deliver quality services at a fair price. Your health care is in the very best of hands.
