KPMG Strikes Deal Over Tax Shelters

Washington Post:
"KPMG LLP will pay about $450 million and open up its operations to independent review as part of a deal with federal prosecutors to avoid a criminal indictment that could have sent the nation's fourth-largest accounting firm into a death spiral, according to sources familiar with the pact."
Im glad to see this. I would hope this would be the first of many but I know it won't be (article says as much). Corporations are going to push too far someday.

Right yet again...

Well looks like I was eerily prescient when I wrote this:

Talked to Pete today. Apparently, it is serious enough for marriage to be a topic of conversation.

Secondary note: Parents visiting for any length of time can be a real pain in the ass.

I wish it was a joke. I don't think it is.

Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity With New 'Intelligent Falling' Theory

Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity With New 'Intelligent Falling' Theory: "Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held 'theory of gravity' is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling."

It is so absurd but yet I can totally see some fundy idiot doing it.

My fridge is on the fritz. The freezer is fine but the fridge is warmish. This so sucks. It is summer and my freezer is fairly full. If it was winter it would be easy.

Hopefully they will get me a new one but somehow I think they might try to fix it. I hate when shit happens at the worst time.

Spent the weekend reading the DaVinci Code. It was decent. Needed an edit job I thought. At points, the writing became fairly weak. These nicely 3-D characters would all of a sudden become these 2-D rants against the church, opus dei, male oppression of women- take your pick. Good idea in general, pretty good plot and flow. But yeah the writing left something to be desired.

The weekend was boring but relaxing. Truly relaxing. I think I finally stopped caring about work in any other sense than a job. I definitely stopped caring. Too much stress, too much effort.

I decided I need to get off my butt and read the books that been waiting for me. It is a real shame I just sort of stopped. Same thing happened with working out. I also want to change that too.

Apparently, I am creepy again (if I ever stopped being). Not a huge surprise. Could be worse than creepy I guess. It is always an interesting juxtaposition of comments like say T/M's a couple of months (weeks?) back to other, often unexpressed, feelings about me. And compare them both to real life. Such a diversity of opinion and yet still the same old me. It is interesting the money thing came up again. I guess it is all part of fpf lore and it won't be change no matter the truth.

Always interesting to look at my sitemeter. Some hits I can ID right away. Some out there definitely are interesting and I have no clue who they could be. To my very bored readership, Hi! I would post more but I think that would only discourage you from doing something more exciting than reading this blog.

What is your answer?

This Is Your Life

Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead
Yesterday is a promise that you’ve broken
Don’t close your eyes, don’t close your eyes
This is your life and today is all you’ve got now
Yeah, and today is all you’ll ever have
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t close your eyes

This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

I don't know mine.
