Odds 'n Sods:

Thursday, Mar 15, 2012

Ah, the amazing world of social networking. There are now niche web pages for every interest. I discovered that most states now have web pages specially tailored to help corrupt, gun-hating politicians keep track of their old friends, like this one. (To keep tabs on Bloomberg buddies like former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. Now awaiting trial under a 38-charge felony indictment for an additional set of corruption charges, with a possible sentence of 30 years.) These sites are handy for planning future meet-ups and hang time. For example, this page will let you know that former Mayor Larry Langford has his dance card filled until May of 2023. Oh, but wait, there are also social networking pages for pedophiliac, gun-hating politicians. (There, you can find former Racine, Wisconsin Mayor Gary Becker, now serving a three year sentence.) They ought to do the same, to keep former governors in touch and congressmen's wives all atwitter. To my way of thinking, the greatest failing of these trendy pages is their lack of catchy names. Perhaps they could use: "BloomberglarBook", "HandDeliverThatFatEnvelopeSpace", or "MayorsLinkedInMaximumSecurity."
