Google Maps’ Streetview [Nearly] Completes LA

Per Zach’s post at LAist, I can now find my house on Google Streetview:


The quality of the images are much better too — here’s a great example of how ridiculous it is that my street is one-way: look at what the mailman has to do to get out the way of the Googmobile!

They did miss a couple of the smaller dead-end streets near me, but still — very cool. Now all I want is to be able to embed real-time traffic overlays!

Gallup Survey Results Show Lack of Solidarity in Dem Base


The whole Karl Rove tactics talk is all funny until you see that the Democratic candidates for president really may be beating each other up so bad that — assuming Obama wins the nomination — nearly 30% of Clinton supporters polled would defect from the party and support McCain. Unbelievable. And with McCain being such a weak candidate, this bodes even worse for the Democratic party in state and local elections. Once again — the two party system proves to be B.S. and it comes down to the lesser of two evils for most voters.
