The "Jeff Gannon" story exploded on the blogosphere today. Link possibly NSFW, some links on page definitely NSFW. For those not in the know, see this earlier post. A man calling himself Jeff Gannon was asking softball questions at a Presidential press conference (full press conference here.) and at White House daily briefings for some time. Turns out the guy was (and perhaps still is) a male prostitute. more inside
Prepare to meet your mouthless masters. I always knew that harmless, cute icon was a front for some sinister activity... seriously, how long until we get to witness some fake UFO trailing a N*ke banner? (SFW image; some comments and the rest of the site very much NSFW)

Curious George: Medication Alternatives I'm looking for some info on dietary or other useful alternatives to taking medicaiton for depression and anxiety. more inside
Thomas Friedman & the Chocolate Factory The realities on the war on terrorism and the war in Iraq (two separate issues in my view) are much different than how these serious issues play in Thomas Friedman's mind. I often feel I have stepped into Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory everytime I read the latest opus by the neocon Times columnist. Friedman has a brainstorm on how the reward money for Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi should be used instead. Hey kids, let's throw an essay writing contest. more inside
