All of us have been deluged with spam, which lessened recently with the arrest of America's biggest spammer. But now spammers are resorting to identity theft, frontloading their own email addresses with the stolen names of individual email addresses.
One of the spammers uses the identity email@example.com, with "firstname.lastname@example.org" - my actual email address - as the "from" line on their email. So beware of any emails purporting to be from me; more likely they're scams from despicable morons who can't think of any way to get people's attention, other than stealing someone else's identity.

Help elect Jim Martin
Sarah Palin is campaigning for the master-of-nasty-campaign-tactics Saxby Chambliss in Georgia. The run-off election against Democratic challenger Jim Martin is next Tuesday. You may recall Chambliss is the anti-immigration friend of corporations who's ignoring a supboena in a case against a Savannah sugar producer.
If you live in Georgia, the key to the run-off is getting out the vote. Please encourage your friends and neighbors to go to the polls next Tuesday. Chambliss has done a lot of damage during his six years in the Senate. Do you really want to give him six more?
