Bj "I think to a certain extent maybe moving to New York influenced me, and then the 9/11 episode and the crisis that is going on in the world today. And to a certain extent all this made me very interested in primitive elements. In something that was before all this happened." Our old friend Bj more inside
US Olympic Shooting Medal Results. Does anyone else find it strange that the U.S. has yet to medal in any shooting events? Since 1984 we only have 15 out of a possible 207 medals, according to this (PDF). With so many guns around, why aren't we dominating the sport as we once did?

Abu Ghraib Report Exonerates Rumsfeld. A new Pentagon report on abuses at Abu Ghraib -- due to be released at the end of the month -- has been leaked in part to the Baltimore Sun. "By naming military intelligence officials as well as the seven military police who have been charged," said a lawyer who has liaised with military officials involved in the case, "it will look like action has been taken. But basically it's still the same storyline of just a few bad apples, way down the food chain."
Antique weirdness NSFW. Welcome and Warning! " What is presented here is a piece of my collection of antique weirdness. If you cannot enjoy racism, ignorance, nudity, sex, or just plain weirdness within their historical context, then this is not the place for you. If you can see possibilities of the humor, the horror, and plain shock value in some of this material, then click on the following links and enjoy." I find this site disturbing, yet interseting in a twisted sense.
The fix may be in, yet again... Bob Herbert of that liberal rag, the New York Times (reg required, blah blah...) writes a little Op-Ed on what looks like it could be more shady goings-on in the Sunshine State's voting situation. Are we just being paranoid, or not paranoid enough?

Curious. George is naked! Alrighty - I can see a guy in the next apartment building sitting on his bed all nekkid and eating Doritos. Thing is, this is only because it's dark, and his window is swung outward and so a perfect mirror into his bedroom. So buddy isn't an exhibitionist, unlike most of my neighbours, and myself - mostly I am just too lazy to find pants before I sprint through my living room - so he might not like this arrangement. more inside
