Keep driving your Prius!

I have trouble believing stories like "Prius probed for engine stalls". As with other things in today's strange world, it's necessary to look behind the news and ask, who's to profit? Well, who indeed would profit from smearing cars that try to minimize the use of fossil fuels? Anyone have any...

Saddam skivies and Rupert hates America

Or, does he? Having appeared as a guest on a few of Rupert Murdoch's television shows, I know that Rupert does nothing without the explicit approval (or collaboration) of the White House.

Interview with Ann Coulter's "heckler"

Jason Buckley, who has a really nice blog, was lucky enough to snag an interview with Ajaj Raj, the so-called Ann Coulter heckler. In fact, he was just exercising his First Amendment Rights, until the crypto-fascists associated with the Bush administration arrested him. Luckily, the Austin People's...
