Before U2 was U2, they were The Hype, and later Feedback. Jefferson Airplane became Starship. The sub Standard is now Galley Slaves. We built this city on rock and roll, whoo-hoo.
A few things that we should have said last week:
(1) Galley Slaves is in no way affiliated with The Weekly Standard, News Corporation, or Rupert Murdoch. (Besides the fact that the three of us work at The Weekly Standard, but that's not a connection, it's a coincidence. You can ask Steve Hayes about the difference.) We are not The Weekly Standard's official blog. The Weekly Standard does not have a blog.
(2) Because we are in no way affiliated with The Weekly Standard, News Corporation, or Rupert Murdoch, none of them can be held responsible for the tripe on this website. They certainly do not endorse the mocking of snooty Russian gymnasts or toenail fungus commercials. That would be beneath their dignity.
(3) All of which means that we are not being paid for this. We are running this blog for fun, which is why we're using blogspot for hosting. While we are happy to waste our time on this little project, we're not happy to waste our hard-earned money.
(4) Did I mention that we are in no way affiliated with The Weekly Standard, News Corporation, or Rupert Murdoch?
