All the world's a stage

I'm obsessed with the upcoming move so I'm a bit distracted and not following the news as I might otherwise. Fortunately, at Kvatch's place they translate the headlines so well, you don't have to read the stories.

Besides, the only ones doing real journalism these days is McClatchy. This is how it's supposed to be done.
WASHINGTON — Then-Vice President Dick Cheney, defending the invasion of Iraq, asserted in 2004 that detainees interrogated at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp had revealed that Iraq had trained al Qaida operatives in chemical and biological warfare, an assertion that wasn't true.
A simple statement of known fact. How refreshing. That's a model that could save newspapers.

Diane has some thoughts on the trustworthiness of the health industry to assist in reform and flags this LAT coumn that comes with an embedded poll. Shockingly when I voted, 93% of the respondents don't trust the healthcos.

Avedon finds a Libertarian utopia and thinks we should make them live in it. I have to agree.

And science meets art. A stunning microphotography gallery.

One of my longtime favorites. Richard Avedon photos.

My favorite deep sea dweller dredges up a fabulous animation. Yellow sticky notes.

My friend Stephen really is an actor who has been known to wear a poodle skirt if the Bard demands it. But he won't be typecast. He does manly roles as well.

And in case you were wondering, the DFHs were right. [ via fokowi]

That Notre Dame thing was so crazy but I heard that he got a standing ovation from most of the students.

Yeah. It's like, there's the US government, and the a-holes who uncritically support it when it does really bad stuff, and there's the rest of us, the American people. There's also the Catholic Church hierarchy, and the buttheads who blindly follow it even under a Nazi-symp, and then there's the Catholic people. It's getting kinda schizy, and the fun-house mirror images of it all in the corporate media don't help. Thank GAWD we have the Internets and folks like you to keep us sane, Libby.
