I'm somewhat concerned that all of my gun-nut friends live in Oakland.

If you're going to live in oakland, its good to be a gun-nut.. Really good friend of mine is Oakland PD and the shit that goes on after a damn Raider game would be pale compared to mass anarchy.. :(

You can come yonder too if the big one hits.. :)

Can you track down where this story originally came from? All I can find is a whole bunch of people re-posting the full text with no attribution except "Larry Bradshaw and Lorrie Beth Slonsky". Googling them just turns up more copies of the story on a couple of socialist web sites.

Somewhere on http://www.haddock.org/ is what it says.

Closest I managed to find was the link on http://www.haddock.org/ which goes to:

http://moolies.zoonies.com/archives/002587.html

that report claims "I'm 1 degree of seperation from these people, so this is not email emoto-spam."

moolies.zoonies.com appears to be a Moveable Type blog, that's been around a couple of years. But I haven't managed to figure out who "cait" is, or who moolies.zoonies.com belongs to. zoonies.com appears to be registered by a UK based person, but that's not inconsistent with the report of being a friend of someone whole was in NOLA for a conference.

It also appeared on the Dave Farber IP list (eg, syndicated to LJ as farber_ip: http://www.livejournal.com/users/farber_ip/766158.html (which is truncated by the feed source)), which gives:

http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2005/9/6/132725/8931

as the source, but that URL reports it as third hand, and ends with "If true, needs to be spread.". So I trust the first path somewhat more.

I'm not willing to dismiss it as false yet, but I'd certainly be happier with a more accurate definitive source.

Googling Haddock gets you to http://www.haddock.org/blogs and it is the second from top.

I liked the "Simple identity to remember: yourname.videntity.org" bit. I wonder how they are planning to arrange that when all the people with the same name start showing up.
