I just told Minnie to “sheket bevakasha.” (A) Being a dog, she does not understand English. Did I think she’d do better with Hebrew? (B) Where did that phrase come from? I haven’t thought of it in 40 years. - http://mitchwagner.tumblr.com/post...

I ordered a Kindle Paperwhite. It’s all you people’s fault. The Kindle comes in 7-10 days. It’s backordered. Also, tactical pants. What a silly name. It’s not like I’m going to be raiding a KGB training camp with Sterling Archer. "The Kindle comes in 7-10 days" sounds like a spy passphrase. I also made another attempt to find a pair of comfortable... - http://mitchwagner.tumblr.com/post...

John McCain remembers Vietnam War General Vo Nguyen Giap: “The U.S. never lost a battle against North Vietnam, but it lost the war.”
Giap led Vietnam to victory against overwhelming odds, first against the French, then the US:
> Giap was a master of logistics, but his reputation rests on more than that. His victories were achieved by a patient strategy that he and Ho Chi Minh were convinced would succeed—an unwavering resolve to suffer immense casualties and the near total destruction of their country to defeat any adversary, no matter how powerful. “You will kill 10 of us, we will kill one of you,” Ho told the French, “but in the end, you will tire of it first.”
Giap’s strategy works if your nation faces an existential crisis. McCain fails to understand that the US does not face such a problem in the global war on terror.
That’s a problem McCain shares with the neocons, and with the Obama Administration. They believe there is nothing more important to the US than winning the war on terror. They are willing to do whatever it takes to win, spend any amount of money and sacrifice any freedom.

Trying to talk myself out of getting a Kindle PaperWhite. It’s a waste of money when I already have a 7” tablet, right? Right?  #Kindle  #PaperWhite #ebooks #gadgets   #tweet - http://mitchwagner.tumblr.com/post...

Turning a page. A tiny page, but still it’s a page. I just got an email from our company IT department that they’re phasing out cmp.com email addresses. This has to do with branding changes the company made years ago. The company used to be CMP, which got bought by UBM. The parent company phased out the CMP brand a few years ago.

Gratuitous photo of a rotary phone dial.
I have a rotary phone in my office. I don’t use it. It’s not even plugged in. It was on my Mom’s nightstand when I was a kid and I took after both she and my Dad were gone.
 
I still have my vintage 1960’s “Oriental” phone from my old retro bedroom in Astoria. I cherish it, but I ain’t got no use for it now. Believe me when I say I very nearly had a landline put in just to be able to use it. 
I miss the clicking rotary dial sound.
 
You could probably get it as a ringtone for your mobile. Not the same of course.
