A lot of people whinge about how useless Twitter is and what a waste of time it is, and, generally, they are probably right; however, personally, I have been using it as an exercise to try and condense my normal, verbose writing style, with occasional success. For example, I never would have written something nearly as concise as this on this weblog:
Apparently Vice President Joe Biden thinks women are too stupid to use [...]
But she wants someone else to do it for her, so that is ok.

While the investigation continues into the U.S. operation that helped send [...]
I fully admit to being somewhat negligent in my tracking of the series of illegal and illicit gun trafficking incidents perpetrated by the BATFE (otherwise known as "Gunwalker", "Gunrunner", or "Operation Fast and Furious" (of all the idiotic names they could have chosen…)); however, other folks have not been so behind the curve: Traction Control provides a great recap, Of Arms and the Law has some more information, and, oh look, gunwalked firearms are showing [...]
