OMT One Man's Trash...from Norman Leahy

Pod People

Continuing his interesting foray into the online world, Mark Warner is going to be podcasting, or more specifically, "syndicat[ing] video through iTunes."

The email announcing this, signed by Ellen Qualls, was rather amusing:

In future shows Governor Warner will be responding to questions from pod people like you. On our podcast page there's a form for you to submit questions and comments to Mark Warner. Every month the Governor will respond to the most interesting submissions as determined in a very subjective manner by flunkies on his staff.

That's one thing I've never, ever seen in a political communication: snark.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
