Random Posts of Interest Elsewhere

I usually don't just post a bunch of links--there are lots of other blogs for that kind of stuff, and they all do it better than I would. But here are a couple of posts I thought were interesting:

1. How F$$$$$$g Screwed We Are, at Happy Furry Puppy Story Time.
(Can't find a permalink...scroll down until you see "Up to Yao Ming's Eyeballs")

2. The almost completely unreported Texas terrorism case at the Christian Science Monitor (via Opinions You Should Have).

3. Anna at NCFocus posts a couple of Ayn Rand quotes that I keep going back to and re-reading, and they freakin' crack me up every time.

4. This bloody interesting piece from the Columbia Journalism Review (via the indispensible Agonist) about folks who train politicians how to avoid answering questions. (Damn, it is unbelievable how easy it is to get away with that!)

5. And this from the WaPo about increasing numbers of young women identifying themselves as "gayish" (meaning roughly bisexual, but it's more complicated than that). I like this story a lot--no, not for that reason, you pervs--I like it because it's another nail in the coffin of the claims of many "queer theorists" and suchlike that there's no such thing as bisexuality. I've got lots of bisexual friends, and that really pisses them off. Apparently some gays and lesbians look down on bisexuals. Amazing the contortions people will go through to find somebody to discriminate against...

6. And two interesting things via Mighty Atrios: (a) Hate mail to Margaret Cho as a result of her appearance (most of the mail from Freepers) and (b) my favorite, "leaky, rusty shells of mass destruction," in which it is revealed that, once again, those WMDs we discovered weren't WMDs...
