The Democrats are in ur serverz

Another installment of the Reactionary Hurl, the series in which I take the easy road to blogging and react to news in short, opinionated, useless snippets. I used to think I’d reject any press release I got. But with the addition of the Self importance meter, how could I?

  • Galena wins state. The only reason I really care about this is that they ran the race at Rancho San Rafael Park. I ran the course there twice in my high school running career, and I doubt I ever broke 20 minutes. And I was on a team that took second at state in the biggest school category, so these kids are fast. My story is that I knew I was always in the back parts of races (I was the seventh guy on the seven-person team), but the start at Rancho was on a wide road that ran right in front of the Wilbur May Museum. I saw photographers there and made sure I looked like a total hero out front before drifting back to where I belonged and could actually maintain. The result, there’s a killer picture of me and my mullet flowing behind me in someone’s archives, and they probably have no idea how great that is. (RGJ)
  • This sounds familiar. Apparently, even the bigtime bloggers care about how they’re portrayed. (Instapundit)
  • Gladwell makes a triumphant return! I hope his blogging picks back up to the point it was a while ago before he stopped. This guy is one of my favorites and returns with a good look at how the FBI profiles serial killers. He is a must-read for anyone who likes culture, sociology, and good writing. (Gladwell)
  • New KUNR show to debut Friday. KUNR and KNPR in Las Vegas will begin a new show, “State of Nevada” on Friday at 9 am, according to Kate Grey. According to the release, “State of Nevada addresses issues of importance across the state, including the economy, water, the environment and government. KUNR’s northern Nevada host Brian Bahouth wants listeners to hear what people in the state are talking about, and engage them in developing this conversation further.“ (KUNR)
  • Oh, oops. All I can say is that I’m outraged that the Republicans would be so stupid as to let my donor information be exposed to potential ne’er -do-wells. I think I’ll post a comment on the newspaper website excoriating them for their business as usual approach to the whole thing as well. I mean, come on, not even an 800 number? Bastards. Wait, what? It was the Democrats? Better yet, the guy responsible is buddies with the Gleaner? Meh. (Inside Nevada Politics)
  • Seriously, this is not a joke. If this story is true, and it was done by someone trying to get back at The Muth for whatever reason, that person should die in a fire. (Muth’s Truths)

And just to be clear, please read the initial Reactionary Hurl so you can understand the context.

Ryan JerzRyan Jerz is an all-around good guy who wants people to eventually refer to him as "that dude who climbs mountains."
