I'll have mine with double krout

That’s right two doses of kraut salad inside half an hour. Not going to be sick are you? Chris Briem posted this scary YouTube video that shows the expansion of WalMarts over the past 30 odd years. I don’t know whether to be pissed, scared or impressed. Jeff Reed has…

Googlicious Sour Kraut

Inspired by PittGirl’s (see point 7) regular pondering of the odd search terms that leave people stumbling across her blog, I thought I’d do a little poking around of my own. All of these people came to the site through google or yahoo: “Jon Kraut” – Someone googling themselves? Sorry…

The Future of Reputation: Gossip, Rumor, and Privacy on the Internet

This posts ambitious title is the title of the book being reviewed, not something I intend to attack in this space. After all, Daniel J. Solove (a law professor at GW and author of the book) had 256 pages to tackle the issue and he failed to get at the…

Slacker Jon Reporting, Finally

All I have is a little Sporty Sour Kraut to go with your Three Rivers Stadium Hot Dog… Well, the Steelers drafted. I watched the draft for about 10 minutes… then I changed the channels so that I wouldn’t grab the nearest available pencil and poke my own eyes out….

Me, You, Cousin Bill and the Treasure Chest

Here’s an editorial that no politician will write, but I’ve been thinking about it and promising it for weeks. So here you go, my liberal ass is going to give you a reason to love campaign finance and the fact that politics is now run by money. First, background information……

Linkless Sour Kraut

I had a few reflections that require no links. So consider this a little Sour Kraut without the fries. About my anonymity, or lack thereof. I had linked over to Blog Lebo and had posted a comment there. The comment was later removed because I do not give out my…

Sour Kraut

Mmmmm. Cabbage Jon Stewart on Western PA. Mike thinks you should wait for 2:20, I think 5:00 to 5:45 is the good part. Finally, the trib made an endorsement for the democratic primary. Thank goodness, I didn’t know who to vote for until Richard Mellon Scaife told me. For those…

Imigration, The Burghosphere Divided

I noticed over on Pittsblog some interesting feedback to a post on immigration. There is a guy who has apparently seen some large Pittsburgh firms use the H1-B process to find cheep replacements for local talent. A few people, like myself, who shoot for something in the middle. Lastly, a…

Sour Kraut…

… and you know what, since I forgot to post yesterday, go ahead and grab yourself some kielbasa too. I’ve been watching a fair bit of television this week (light week) there appear to be some political adds… among the things I’ve learned:– It seems that both Hilary and Barack…

The Feel Good Story of the Spring

Nate McLouth is batting .381 and has a 13 game (that’s all of them) hitting streak. He was the primary photo on ESPN’s baseball page this morning and leads the entire league in hits, by 3. Unfortunately he’s a Michigan fan, but if the Pirates go .500 this year I’ll…
