Move Over Road Rage--Here Comes Spam Rage

Looks like Charles did what we only dream about:

A 44-year-old Silicon Valley programmer has been charged with threatening to maim and even kill employees of a Canadian Internet-advertising agency that he believed had repeatedly sent him spam.

Empathize here.

TOXIC FISH ALERT / Survey finds mercury in 4 species at markets in Bay Area

Mecury is one of those many things that get blamed for causing MS. I just had a great halibut/ginger/lime/orange dish tonight. Looks like I made a good choice. Here's a picture of the one I ate.

Alaskan halibut was the only fish tested that did not exceed the EPA weekly safety level for a 120-pound person. A six-ounce piece contained, on average, 23.2 micrograms of mercury, the tests found. At that level, -pound person could safely consume about 9 ounces of halibut a week.

Beluga whales are chock full of protein and vitamins

I know of one Yupik Eskimo with MS and she went through hell getting diagnosed 'cause "Eskimos don't get MS". I wonder, as traditional diets high in vitamin D are replaced by western diets if we will begin to see more MS among our Northern Native people.

"To me, it gets me more healthy," said Allen Atchak Sr., a whaling captain from Stebbins who feeds his family of seven children lots of beluga meat and muktuk. "I don't ever get sick. I don't ever get bad colds. I think it's medicine."

I've eaten whale and seal and it doesn't tast like chicken!

We do things differently in Fairbanks. Skin 'em here.

Maybe the girls could send Richard Pryor a hat.
