Brownout and Politics

My college had a brownout this afternoon. The power didn't come back on until just a few minutes before I left work. It's too bad that the power went out. I was having such a productive day.

I've thought about doing a blog entry on next week's elections and who I favored, but the Jackson Free Press already did it for me. I'm pretty much in agreement with most of their decisions.

My quibbles are that I'm not familiar with the auditor candidates and also wish that Phil Bryant had talked with them. I think he'd be a good lieutenant governor. However, I'm not voting in the Republican primary.

Interesting, in some states (Cow's former residence) brownouts occur at scheduled times every afternoon because of power shortages. Didn't know it had reached Mississippi.

Apropos of the Library Guy's problem, Topiary Cow just got spammed on her blog. So, she deleted the post (blog owners should be allowed to delete comments but apparently not).

And Cow as a first step has now required posters to be registered users. The next step will be to emulate Apropos of Nothing and require the dreaded word verification. Hope it doesn't come to that!

That'll work if all your readers are Blogger people. I know some people who read this blog who are non-Blogger people, and to allow them to comment without the hassle of registering (since it's another username and password they have to remember) I went with the word verification option.

Just please don't vote for M. Sumrall for State Auditor.

Wait a sec, you couldn't delete the comment? You should have the ability. I think I have that power (or at least had, it may have changed).

I'm not familiar with Sumrall. I know he's brought forth his accountancy experience, but I don't know if that's really needed for the person in charge.

Speaking of comments, is there a way in blogger to not require people to register but to disallow anonymous comments? It didn't look like it to me, which is why I'm requiring registration, but I'd like to open it up so people unwilling to sign up for yet another online account might be willing to comment, but I really don't want to get anonymous comments.

As far as I know, there isn't a way to disallow anonymous comments.

Being the devoted Republican that I am, deciding which candidate to suport for LiteGuv was a tough decision.

OK, not really. I'm not a huge fan of Bryant, but Ross's ads about Mike Moore's "illegal" diversion of money means I'd never, no way, no how, vote for Charley Ross.
