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.

Tony Mack refuses to go quietly. Because sucking at the public teat is all he knows how to do. So in his mind a conviction on six federal corruption counts isn't an impediment to him remaining mayor of Trenton, NJ.
And a judge just conditionally agreed, saying Mack has two weeks to make his case.
Convicted Mayor Tony Mack can remain in office at least two more weeks after he was given the chance today to fight a state attorney general's effort to remove him.
Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson set a Feb. 26 hearing date at the Mercer County Criminal Courthouse for Mack, when he will be able to appear and contest that his conviction on six federal corruption counts puts him in violation of state law. A written answer from him is due two days before.
Jacobson was responding to a complaint filed Monday by a deputy attorney general seeking an order of forfeiture that would force Mack from office. Mack was convicted Friday in federal court after a monthlong trial but has opted not to resign. Though state law says he is now ineligible to serve as mayor, without a resignation it will take a judge's declaration to enforce state statute.
Mary Jacobson is the same looney-liberal superior court judge who invented New Jersey's "right" to same-sex "marriage." So let's just say that if you were looking for a judge who can twist the law to keep Tony Mack in office, Mary Jacobson would be at the top of your list.
Because, in case you hadn't guessed by now, Tony Mack is a Democrat.
So it's understandable that the Star-Ledger isn't clammoring for his resignation. After all, he didn't cause a traffic jam.
Meanwhile, Mack's minions are rallying to his side.
Business Administrator Sam Hutchinson said Mack has not been in City Hall this week.
"He is on leave," Hutchinson said.
When asked if it was sick leave, vacation time or for some other reason, Hutchinson responded, "It is appropriate," and refused to provide further details.
Hutchinson said he was notified Mack was on leave, but refused to say how or by whom he was told or whether Mack was still in the city.
You can be sure of one thing though. Tony Mack is still on the city's payroll. And it looks like that's where he's gonna stay.
Only in New Jersey.
