Demonization of the what now?


The Indy has seen some of the stories the Lincoln Group continues to plant in the Iraqi press, featuring such examples of journalistic excellence as “Iraqi Army Defeats Terrorism” and “The ISF has quickly developed into a viable fighting force capable of defending the people of Iraq against the cowards who launch their attacks on innocent people.”

Link of the day: the History of Circumcision website, which is associated with the author’s book, A Surgical Temptation: The Demonization of the Foreskin and the Rise of Circumcision in Britain, $35 from the University of Chicago Press. Demonization of the foreskin?

President Doesn’t-Know-What-To-Do-With-His-Arms visits some Mayan ruins (which don’t look that ruined compared with, say, Baghdad, New Orleans or American credibility in the world), does not get chased by a huge boulder like Indiana Jones, then tries to steal some guy’s hat.
