Website S.O.P.
Usually I clean out the day's headline links between 10 and midnight and load an abbreviated page for overnight. New stuff is normally uploaded between 8 and 10 a.m. and stays all day and evening.
Sometimes I add during the day but only occasionally. Weekends don't get much updating if any at all.
Previous headline links are always available (by month) in the Headline Archive in this column, or you can keyword search the entire site with the button

Another ruling against Do Not Call list
The second ruling ... erects a far higher hurdle ... said the registry was unconstitutional because the FTC allowed telemarketing calls from charities but not commercial enterprises, and violated the First Amendment.
Texas No-Call list not affected. Link to sign up for the Texas list is always near the bottom of the right column on this page


"...and finally we ask that You, in Your infinite wisdom, send the entire telemarketing industry straight to Hell..."

LARRY LA PRESE

What with all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person which almost went unnoticed last week. Larry La Prise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at age 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in... and then the trouble started...

Thanks, John
