Re: hold music. I've never been on hold with my company, so I don't know if there's hold music or not.

Man, that $150 million number cheeses me off so much in that it's completely false.

Is the word "Mulatto" just an adjective, or is it a racist adjective? I grew up in the whitest state in the union*, and never learned the subtleties.

*Seriously, I think Octaroon was the most non-white we got.

Oddly, my apartment building has music in the lobby 24/7, but not my place of business.

I don't know why, but I'm reading the comments. I like that the most common charge anyone can level against Obama comes down to, "Everyone likes him! Everyone thinks he's going to do such a great job!"

Though there was this gem:

"Change Has Come to America…

CHACA…wow…pretty similar to the African Zulu “reformer, purger, and uniter”, SHAKA ZULU."

Um ... what?

Oh, and people calling Michelle ugly.

So far, the two sets of comments which utterly baffled me were the "WTF, did you notice Michelle and Jill are listed under Administration? I'm horrified!" and "Since when does the White House website have a copyright notice??"

Well, in reverse order, "since always" and "So were Laura and Lynn, the first ladies have always been listed under the administration heading."

And yeah, people sure are taking their shots where they can. Apparently Obama's ears are so big they require a five-year old to photoshop them out. I'm still parsing that would-be insult.

Our hold music is all "Come to UNLV, spend money with us on your education! Won't it be fun to be as diverse as you want to be?"

Speaking of kids names, one kid who my wife and I test the urine for drugs for has the name:

Bruce Wayne Schnitt.

Doesn't that mean his parents have to die?
