The Daily Caller web site is offering a free gun to anyone who can help them track down a hacker.
From the site:
First, if you’re the first person to find our hacker and turn his name over to us, we’ll give you a gun. We realize this may seem like a daunting task, but we believe it can be done.
You’ll have only 2 weeks to complete your mission, and we wish you good luck.
For all of you readers out there who aren’t Internet sleuths we have a second way to win: Write an essay telling us what you think we should do with the hacker when we find him. We’ll give a prize to the person with the funniest and most inventive ideas for how TheDC should repay this jerk. Enter your essay in the box on this form, and please note that the winning essay will be published on The Daily Caller at the end of the contest.
1964 – Ranger 7, an unmanned U.S. lunar probe, took the first close-up images of the moon.
1971 – Apollo 15 astronauts David R. Scott and James B. Irwin became the first men to ride in a LRV (lunar rover vehicle) on the moon. They rode for about 5 miles on the lunar surface. Their first stop at the rim of Elbow Crater was televised back to Earth to millions of viewers.
1975 – Former labor leader Jimmy Hoffa disappeared from a parking lot in a Detroit restaurant and has never been seen since. His disappearance remains unsolved.
A cousin of mine in Detroit posted this photo on his Facebook pages. Supposedly, this sign is located on Fort Street and Outer Drive, somewhere within the city limits. There are some parts of Dallas that need a similar sign.
“While many people, particularly younger people, rely more on social messaging than email, email is still the preferred method for long-form communication. Microsoft wants desperately to run away from Hotmail…. Hotmail got very stale with its feature set and needed to be replaced for this decade’s use of richer media, like photos and video, social connected accounts, video communications and chat.”

In case anyone feels this broad doesn’t have a clue what real working people experience, just read through these gems that came from Ann Romney’s perfectly-manicured lips. Damn! She gives Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin some tough competition! Just remember, Ann Romney’s dressage horse gets a $77,000 tax credit, while the average child – including those of many Republicans who’ll probably vote for her husband – gets a paltry $1,000.
“We can be poor in spirit, and I don’t even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing. It can be here today and gone tomorrow.”
– To Fox News.
“Why are you here? What made you come out of your house today to this event? And what do you think about the future? I love the fact that there are women out there who don’t have a choice and they must go to work and they still have to raise the kids. Thank goodness that we value those people, too. And sometimes life isn’t easy for any of us.”
– Commenting on the average American woman at the Connecticut Republican Party’s Prescott Bush Awards Dinner in Stamford this past April.
“We were happy, studying hard. Neither one of us had a job because Mitt had enough of an investment from stock that we could sell off a little at a time.”
– In a 1994 interview with the Boston Globe, when Mitt was running for the U.S. Senate.
In an interview with a Baltimore radio station, Queen Ann pressed the audience to believe that, despite her husband’s stiff demeanor and penchant for human and canine bullying, he was really lots of fun, adding that “we better unzip him and let the real Mitt Romney out.”
“We’ve given all you people need to know.”
– In an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America,” when asked why more of Mitt’s latest tax returns won’t be released publicly.
I know there’s more from Queen Ann, but this is about all I could stomach for now. Hostile comments welcome.
