"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties. Truth was never put to the worse in a free and open encounter..."
~ Milton
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
~Benjamin Franklin

That dolphin-beaching story? It's starting to look like audio pollution might have been the culprit.

Today's CBS News headline? Outsourcing Interrogation 'Legal'.

A senior Bush administration official says a secret CIA program to transfer suspected terrorists to foreign countries for interrogation is a legal alternative to the cumbersome and expensive process of holding them in U.S. facilities.

Human rights are too cumbersome for this Administration?

I may be sick.

Voting irregularities matter. Those of you on the Right smugly dismissing this stuff because you think it's a bunch of Lefties whining over losing are letting partisan idiocy blind you.

Everyone's vote should be accurately counted.

What about this simple fact fails to register with you? It's not, in the end, about November 2004. Not even a little bit. It's about the basic foundation of our government. It's not about who won, or lost, one election. It's about every election from here on out. It's about your right to use the ballot box to influence the future of this country.

Is it just because almost 100% of the reported irregularities implicate the Right? Do you think it doesn't matter because it means your guys remain in power? Are you really that thrilled with that the Bush Administration and the rest of the Radical Right are doing?

(And how the heck am I getting so many 'pings' from spammers where I'm unable to identify and block the actual URL? How can I get 'pinged' from a site that doesn't exist? I've been reduced to banning entire ISPs.)

You're getting pinged by the "open" proxies the spammers use. They'll just move on to the next one. . .

Heh.

I had a lot to do today, but I put most of it aside and fought through my techno-ignorance to download and install MT Blacklist over the last couple of hours.

We'll see how it works.
