iPad Links: Wednesday, April 21, 2010

I didn’t think I’d get a complete Links post done today but I managed it.

Libraries in NYC Protest Proposed Massive Budget Cuts — in a city where the Mayor, Billionaire Bloomberg, out of his own pocket, spent more on his illegitimate third run than he will deny the library. The vain bastard needs to open his big bank account and donate the shortfall. As penance!

I have just learned that Firefox’s spell check does not work in the Post Title Field.
