Pony Party ~ Better late than never

Have some Sweet Dreams

OPOL’s excellent May Day art work

Opol's Art

brobin’s excellent essay

And just because no day is complete without this

So here’s the deal… nocatz had to take the night off and asked me to step in.

And since Victory Coffee visited last week and showed me how to post pictures

I thought what a great way to share OPOL’s wonderful poster.  And further, since

this IS a Pony Party where anything is acceptable how about this ~

BUSHWHACKED

The Story:  In response to the Valerie Plame scandal in 2003, in which a presidential staff member leaked the name of a CIA operative to the media, pResident George W. Bush demanded an end to leaks of sensitive information by unnamed members of his (mis)administration.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?:  Bush’s demand was actually made to his staff in secret – the news was leaked to the media by an unnamed member of his (mis)administration.

 Please don’t rec the Pony Party.  Please do feel free to hang around so we can

chat and then go and read some of the fine offerings on the front page.

    Hope that after you’ve finished reading and chatting you’ll

    consider stopping by the “Donate” button and maybe dropping

    a dollar or three in.

  1. I need to vent a bit…am still furious.

    Over the weekend, somebody here asked me what Youffraita means, and I explained about having a common name, and as far as I can tell, I’m the only Youffraita in the blogosphere.

    Well.  This confirms it.  Today I got two letters from somebody in Texas (checked the website; can’t email back and don’t want to waste precious cellphone minutes talking to an idiot) dunning me (I assume–will send them back unopened) for taxes that somebody with my last name owes in some East Fuckberg County, TX.

    We don’t even have the same middle initial; and I am not male.  I assume the dun-ee is (“Clint”).

    Yeah, the address was correct…it’s my address.  As far as I can tell, the only thing we have in common is a first initial and a last name.

    Honestly, I’m thinking of legally changing my last name to something like…well, maybe not Youffraita, but you get the idea.

    It’s not the first time this has happened.  In college, I was dunned for somebody else’s hospital bill (at least that one was also a female).

    I mean, I’ve only been in TX once in my life (changing flights; and it was long enough ago that I can’t recall which airport).

    Gaaaaah!

    Thanks for letting me vent.  Is it very expensive to change your last name (legally) in PA?  Does anybody know?

  2. better late than never is right.
