Parts of my body can fly all over

A good piece on what Paul O’Neill’s book reveals about Bush and the Bush White House.

Oh, and it says the publishers will post all 19,000 documents to the internet.

Michael Powell, Colin’s pro-media-monopoly son, wants the FCC to crack down on dirty words. I missed this, but during the Golden Globes Awards, Bono said that something or other was “fucking brilliant.” The FCC ruled that the word was an adjective, not describing a sex act, so it wasn’t obscene. (Also, wouldn’t that have been a live broadcast?) Powell wants to overturn that, and increase the fine for dirty words ten times.

Like every other “discovery” of Iraqi WMDs, last week’s claim that trace liquids in old shells might be poison gas turned out to be false.

According to the video message left by the Hamas suicide bomber and mother of two (aged 2 and 3), “I always wanted to be the first woman to carry out a martyr attack, where parts of my body can fly all over. That is the only wish I can ask God for.” Dare to dream, Reem al-Riashi, dare to dream.
