Jeers and Heckling Greet Annan

UNITED NATIONS - U.N. staffers heckled and booed Secretary-General Annan yesterday in a raucous meeting after he presented a "management reform" plan that includes cutting jobs for New Yorkers. In a clear sign that U.N. employees have lost confidence in a leader who rose from their ranks, one staffer told the secretary-general bluntly, "Nobody believes you."

When asked by a staffer if U.N. jobs will be farmed out to Kinko's from now on, Mr. Annan showed how out of touch he has become from his underlings and from his fellow New Yorkers. "What is Kinko?" he asked. When a staffer replied it was a Long Island sex club, Annan asked if they have any meetings in Manhattan.

IBM dumps Microsoft

IBM has cancelled its contract with Microsoft as of October this year, says Andreas Pleschek, who runs IBM's open source and Linux technical sales efforts in north eastern Europe. Pleschek was giving a talk at the LinuxForum 2006 in Copenhagen, Denmark, and his statement is quoted by elhaard in Groklaw.

Elhaard goes on, "That means that IBM will not use Windows Vista for their desktops. Beginning from July, IBM employees will begin using IBM Workplace on their new, Red Hat-based platform.

Molly Ivins dumps the Dems

I have had it with the D.C. Democrats, had it with the DLC Democrats, had it with every calculating, equivocating, triangulating, straddling, hair-splitting son of a bitch up there, and that includes Hillary Rodham Clinton.

But she's not quite ready yet, to go out on a date with a neocon:

1) Iraq is making terrorism worse; it’s a breeding ground. We need to extricate ourselves as soon as possible. We are not helping the Iraqis by staying.

3) Single-payer health insurance.

I wouldn't get too stressed out about the whole thing there, Molly. Maybe you should slip out for some liquid refreshment at a local tavern. Relax a little bit, maybe even have a cigar?
