The greatest adversary of Mutineer Magazine is not the crumbling economy, nor is it the Wine Spectator. The greatest adversary of Mutineer Magazine is the army of meter maids in Los Angeles.

Google has this new program “Mail Goggles” created to protect the inebriated from sending reckless e-mails.
Here is how it works: Mail Goggles asks you five math problems and gives you 60 seconds to solve them. Succeed, and your mail will be delivered as intended. Fail, and you will be sent to bed. Simple as that.
Granted, some people can’t answer questions like these when they are sober, but that is another situation. Mail Goggles is your friend, and your last line of defense against contacting that ex- in a drunken state of mind.
First off, I apologize for the momentary lapse in blogs this week. We took the entire Mutineer Magazine staff up to Washington with us to attend the Yakima Fresh Hop Ale Festival, so things shut down in the Mutineer Magazine office. See the full post »
