Last week I wrote about my misadventure in Indian customer support. I need to apologize to India. I found out this morning that it was Philippine customer support. India, please accept my apology.

Of course, I did have to call again this morning in an effort to print my tax organizers. I should be able to do so tomorrow.

The Nanny State marches forward in Salem, Massachusetts and Phoenix, Arizona. In Salem, the local Board of Health has banned bake sales unless a permit is obtained and the food is baked in a city-owned kitchen. No more brownies at the church, etc.

In Maricopa County, Arizona (Phoenix), the county Environmental Health Division is banning bake sales that last two or more days unless a permit is obtained and that only sells items made in a professional kitchen; one-day sales are allowed, but sellers must have a sign that states the food was prepared in a kitchen that isn't county-regulated. Violators face fines "in the hundreds of dollars."

As the Arizona Republic said, "The whole notion is as nutty as a sheet of peanut brittle."

Nanny State 2, U.S. 0.

Here's a link to The Global Warming Test. Ok, prock and evwhore, what's wrong with the test?

Regarding the climate change test, it would probably be a better excercise for you rlto find at least three problems with it.
