John Bolton on John Stewart

I am watching Jon Stewart on Comedy Central and his guest is John Bolton and this is super interesting. I may not agree with Mr. Bolton but he is one of the few guests on any show that has survived well. I would say that for once the host did not destroy the guest. Quite unexpected.

Bolton has some interesting views about democracy that basically goes along this line: You vote for a president and hence a way of running the country in other words you should expect the president to replace everyone in the administration with people who agree with him. John Stewart disagrees and thinks that the president should suround himself with people who can question him. It goes on into an interesting and equal discussion.

Interestingly enough this reminds me of the destinction between Denamrk and Sweden. In Sweden the leading party has a history of replacing people in the administration with people of the same political orientation. In Denmark, this is much less common, and usually happens on a smaller scale.

Looking back

When old men look back
They don't
Regret not
Spending more time in the office

I know this now
Not old
Just know That
I shall regret other things

But today I choose to spend more
Time in
The office
Because I like the drug

Like the coffee and the candy
Self esteem boost
Work needs doing and work needs me

A good cause

Live messenger has made a really cool marketing push. Everytime you use messenger you support a cause of your choosing. You can choose from 9 causes. At least you can in the US.

All you have to do is add the cause' tag to your name in messenger. Instructions

Yes it is marketing but it is also so much more. And it is well in line with Microsof tbeing the company in the world tht donates the most amount of money to all kinds of causes.
