    That made my morning AND turned my mood around. Thanks for passing it along.

    Frickin’ awesome.
    If only it came in “black”, as it were…

    That smacks of racism. I have news for you. It ain’t just white.

    I have this one on my refrigerator. As a mom of two girls, it makes me smile daily!

    Huh?
    I’d like it if the sticker had a version with a little black girl. Or hey, even a little black boy. It would lose some of the “Dick and Jane”-kitsch-based irony, but it’d still be worth having a rainbow of them, as it were. Dick and Jane kitsch done in African American, Latino, male, Vietnamese, Inuit and Yupik, etc. has its own hilarious, delicious irony.
    (Mmmm, tasty tasty irony.)

    I love this! I agree it should come in a rainbow of colors but, considering the source of power in America, if they were going to choose one this was the one to do.
    I want a little cartoon girl who says things like that -loves her-
    I don’t think its racist against white people, I’m white, the little girl pictured is white, but the religious-right is populated by old white men, many of whom are racist and make a point of being white which is where this comes from.

    Middle-aged, pasty white men are screwing over 95 percent of us. Register to vote against these godbags.

    I agree, Kate, it made sense for the “real”ish Dick & Jane example as a start. Just hope they make some others some time!
    Actually, it’s interesting (when you think about racism further), as racism really is about perpetuating an unequal system — which people of ANY race can do. It drives me up the wall when people say of the botched follow-up to the Katrina disaster, “Well, it can’t be racism, many of the officials/the mayor is black.” Just like women can support (tacitly or not) the patriarchal hegemony, blacks can support racism.
    The only thing that’s worse is when liberals/progressives can’t answer the “but they’re black!” racism counterargument. Which has happened many times. Sigh.

    As a central computer was 2 sets of 140 type electronic computer systems (corememory 160,000 figures) provided with 2 sets of 1301 type magnetic disk memory devices (memory ability 56,000,000 figures per set). As auxiliary computers, 2 sets of 1440 type electronic computer systems (corememory 16,000 figures) was linked to 4 orders of multiprexabuffer computer (1448–1440) respectively, and to the buffer computer was provided 2 sets of 1311 type magnetic disk memory devices.
    Some 50 sets of data transmitting devices were placed at the over 30 venues and these were directly
    connected with the electronic computer system at the IBM Data Centre. In addition, 14 sets of 1443 type printing devices were placed at the main venues by connecting with 1013 type card transmitting devices.
    Athletics, swimming, rowing, shooting and similar events were restricted in the managing time of data, and there was a need of rewriting and combining course numbers or computing scores and these were then transmitted immediately back to the venues.
    The 1050 type, data-processing system was first connected to the 1448–144–1410 units. The 1050 type to be used at the other venues were connected to 1448–1440–1410 of the second order. Immediately after each event, the record papers were transmitted from sports operating officials to the 1050 IBM operator, and the operator changed these to the previously determined code and typed by 1050 type date communication system.
