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.

This is too funny not to repost. Stacy McCain describes the foibles of one Chamique Holdsclaw, recently of the WNBA.
Chamique Holdsclaw is 6-foot-2, 172 pounds. She was a three-time NCAA champion at the University of Tennessee and, during her 11 seasons of pro basketball, averaged nearly 17 points per game. And she is now wanted on an aggravated assault charge.
See, she got pissed at her ex-girfriend, and…
[Jennifer] Lacy, who is also a professional basketball player, said she drove to a friend's house on Hemphill Avenue, at which time Holdsclaw got out of her car with a baseball bat and began smashing the windows in Lacy's Range Rover, the report said.
After breaking the driver's side window, a rear passenger's window and the rear window, Holdsclaw produced a handgun, fired inside the SUV and fled the scene, the report said.
So, why is this funny? Well, first there's this:
Holdsclaw's Twitter profile describes her as "a mental health advocate."
Wait for it…
I suppose bashing in your ex-girlfriend's car windows — with a few pistol shots thrown in for good measure — might be considered therapeutic in some sense. NTTAWWT.
And then, it gets better!
Oh, my — this probably isn't great publicity for the lesbian reality TV show Chamique Holdsclaw was co-producing.
Gee, ya think?
Looking to capitalize on the reality TV craze while busting myths about lesbians, producers of "The Real Women of America" have cast a trailer with a diverse set of local women as its would-be stars.
With lofty goals to produce a "Real Housewives"-type franchise and expand into cities including New York, San Francisco, Miami and Dallas, among others, producers A.L. King, Tina Crittenden, India Alston and Chamique Holdsclaw are starting right here at home with a diverse group of locals.
Yeah, "busting myths", busting car windows, whatever it takes.
Me? I'd retitle that reality show "Scared Straight".
