Just Passing Through

Offer a moment of silence for Spain's 3/11 losses. The country held a state memorial.

Six Brits are trapped in a cavern in Mexico.

It's a bit of a mystery to me why the second major revelation of a reporter making up stories isn't getting more coverage in the world o'blog. Granted, USA Today isn't The New York Times by a long shot, but it's a huge seller, a national media outlet, and any revelation that the 'news' it prints is badly tainted is bad news for the tens of thousands of business travelers who find the paper outside their hotel rooms in the morning.

Marge Piercy says what I've been saying. What we need aren't candidates who are "just like me" but candidates smart enough to do the job if they get elected.

I'm going to miss Bob Edwards in the mornings.

The invasion of Iraq was an "Ignoble, Unnecessary War" according to Helen Thomas.

Bomb Mexico! From Molly Ivins

I'm brooding over something and may come back and inflict it on you later.

Are you serious? Kelley's fakery isn't being covered in the blogosphere? Geez, I can't seem to get away from it. :)

Saw a few minutes of the state memorial this morning on EuroNews; very moving.

I haven't seen much about it in the mainstream press, either: some in responsible outlets like NPR (What are they thinking over there, I wonder? Whatever they do next better be really, really good.), but nothing like the Jayson Blair implosion.

I have theories about that: second case fatigue; no affirmative action debate; USA Today, for all its circulation, doesn't have the "newspaper of record" tag to live up to, and it's pretty non-partisan (I haven't read it much I admit) so there's no partisan ax to grind.

But if this keeps up, they're going to have to institute a peer-review system for journalists.....
