DNC 2008 memorial police shirt beat the crowds

First of all, there’s the nearly unbelievable story of the Denver Police Union’s commemorative T-Shirts from the 2008 Democratic National Convention.? There’s a caricature cop with a club, and the caption “WE GET UP EARLY, to BEAT the crowds” — seriously.? Here’s the story courtesy of Denver’s ABC affiliate station…and it had to be Channel 7, right?? It’s been that kind of day:

dow closes at 777

Like the Universe had to rub it in? The lead quote everywhere is from Barney Frank…he’s got a different context in mind but it’s remarkably appropriate: “One of the Truly Great Coincidences in the History of Numerology” The law of averages recieved a further blow when the markets released their closing statistics: “Dow plunges over 7%, S&P over 8%, Nasdaq over 9%” — but before jumping to occult conclusions, let me recommend two great reads from back when Rigorous Intuition was really dropping gems: The Banality of the Weird and most of all, The Higher Coincidence.

    Great stuff as always, Sir Boland. Although, sometimes, I wish I hadn’t raised the veil when I see that ugly face of Truth staring back at me, with blackened teeth and fetid breath. All Hail Discordia!

    …the more I look at it, the more I want one of those shirts. But I don’t want to give them money, either.

    A serious ethical quandary.

    Ha! Being born on the 7th day of the 7th month isn’t as lucky as it seems…Welcome aboard Justin.
