Castles made of sand

Song in my head and a bunch of interesting links piling up that don't need much commentary. This first one is fresh from today. On of all places, Fox News, Shepard Smith comes out against torture in no uncertain terms. I didn't think he was allowed to drop the "F" bomb on teevee.

Everybody was loving Hillary yesterday when she dissed Cheney during a Congressional hearing.

Avedon flags a couple of great posts. Digby catches JPMorgan Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon, in a dirty effin hippie moment, wherein he sends a letter to his shareholders blaming the Bush spending spree on "wars" of choice for our economic problems now and he even admits that Wall Street greed was partly responsible.

Speaking of Wall St greed, this is good news. Pelosi wants to start a congressional investigation into what caused the financial crash of 2008.

Molly passes on a link to a children's book last printed in 1970 about girls and boys. File this one under: My, how times have changed.

Lots of eye candy today. Watertiger loves New York.

And Phila's Friday hope blogs are always a treasure trove of visual pleasures and good news. Like this discovery of a huge bed of rare black coral.

Also, a gallery of matchbox labels. I've always loved the matchboxes you can buy outside of the US. I have a little collection of empty ones myself that I just can't bear to throw away.

And finally a really remarkable set of close-up photos of grains of sand.
