Blackberry Woes

So, the word on the street is that they settled that Blackberry suit. Everything is going to be fine, Washington, D.C. is not going to grind to a halt, and young, promising Hill staffers will not be left crouching in the corners of Metro stations in wrinkly suits thumb-tapping furiously on the nearest small, black object yelling at tourists about how they used to "BE SOMEBODY UNTIL I STOPPED GETTING E-MAILS!"

So, that's good. Apparently, however, my Blackberry didn't get the, e-mail. I'm guessing NTP wasn't entirely happy with its $600 million settlement and just picked a couple of folks to mess with.

I won the lottery. If you need me, I'll be in the corner of the Metro station. I used to BE SOMEBODY, you know?!?
