Missing Mitt

The Nossiter Net is cast  to snare some of  the riper rascalities of the day.  Comments?  Send a letter to the editor.
Picture perfect is our man Mitt,
So tailored and coiffed and groomed,
But sad to say he’s not a hit
I fear his candidacy’s doomed.

And yet he looks so jake!
His clothes, his tan, his do.
Were his hair a wig it’d look fake
Hmm. Is that the voters’ apercu?

Suppose he were disheveled
And looked a tad less tony
In our trust might he have reveled
Seemed less the obvious phony?

I think not. His honesty lack
When push comes to shove
Is beyond that of the average hack;
Even his millions can’t buy love.

There was nothing new at The Nossiter Net between March 3rd and April 26th, 2007, nearly eight weeks.  The reason:  tech sabotage. Yahoo Geocities, the host for this site, denied access for the entire period.  At one point, they even managed to lose all the files.  In many discussions with Yahoo staff, no clear explanation was forthcoming.  No one seemed able to fix the problem.  Ruling out the possibility of Dubbya’s revenge, I finally wrote to Mr. Terry Semel, Chairman and CEO of Yahoo! Inc and described the ordeal the page had undergone since the beginning of March.  A week later, a helpful Yahooo engineer named Jason called.  He had my letter before him.  Though he couldn’t do the repairs on on the spot, he promised a fix by the next day.  That was April 26th, nearly two months after shutting me down in the first place.

The Nossiter Net apologizes, which is more than I can say for Yahoo Geocities.
