I'm off to the dentist (again) at oh-too-early today, then to work where I get to race the holiday with a pair of major-big-deal projects while Mom is in the hospital. On the other hand, I have a house and the heat and light works.

WikiLeaks Leaks Russian Secrets
Little something for those of you who were grousing how Julian "Mr. Class" Assange was only releasing item that damaged the United States government. Nope, he's a general stepper-on of toes. Not all of his unwilling dancing partners play as nice as our guys; in this case he has (oh shock horror) linked the highest levels of the Russian government to (dramatic fanfare) organized crime! Who could'a guessed?
I remain in favor shining light into the bloated dark places of nation-states; it's unfortunate that Assange is an uber-jerk and even more so that he encourages half-wits to forsake their oaths...but if you leave "secret" info out where a secretarial-pool PFC can get at it, just how secret was it, really?
