Once Around the 'Net

A quick whirl through the headlines before I buckle down to serious work today.

George Bush is the torture president.

And, speaking of Bush failures, more signing statements. We all saw one of them coming:

In the authorization bill, Mr. Bush challenged four sections. One forbid the money from being used “to exercise United States control of the oil resources of Iraq”

(And to think, he didn't think his "legacy" would be known until after he died!)

Is Iraq the "forgotten war? Is Afghanistan?

This Gerson column was an--interesting--take on the campaigns. McCain is a great man sabotaged by the financial meltdown. Obama isn't much and doesn't have much to offer, but he's riding a historical tide, so all he has to do is stay afloat. (I hate it when someone makes my head spin that hard this early in the morning.)

When I read Are We Rome? Tu Betchus! Mostly? I want to learn Latin.

Does overeating make you stupid? I don't know (although I feel sludgy, and stupid, when I overeat), but it's worth considering that you might avoid Alzheimer's disease by eating less.

I miss the occasionally fabulous photos from the Hubble telescope.

One of the coolest things about Twitter? The entities you get to chat with. The MarsPheonix is my favorite.

And, to end on a funny note? How about that campaign ad I saw on television last night? It said that "liberal deregulation in Washington" caused the financial mess.
