"You know it's 2007 when a candidate, in this case Mike Huckabee, holds a bifurcated conference call, first with reporters, then with bloggers. I listened in on both calls to see what the differences were. The reporters' questions were much more concise and polished. But the bloggers' questions were more substantive by a long shot."

Whoah. Check out this sketchy new amendment to the Patriot Act.

"When the government is allowed to show up unannounced without a warrant and search people's homes, it's bad news for all of us."

SOME NEWS:
* Analysis: examining the Annapolis conference. More from David Ignatius. Times analysis sees the shadow of Iran.
* Five myths about Social Security.
* Howard Kurtz on a dust-up over Romney's religion.
* Tonight: the Republicans' YouTube debate.
* Verizon plans to open up its wireless network to more options for customers.
* "The final five designs in the popular State Quarters series were announced yesterday by the United States Mint."
* The continued evolution of Eve Online.

Teen Titans returns to TV. Also, release dates for Dragonlance and Appleseed.

"Fewer than one in three middle-class families in America is financially secure, and the remaining majority are either borderline or at high risk of falling out of the middle class altogether, according to a new study published this week by Demos and the Institute for Assets and Social Policy (IASP) at Brandeis University."

I'm glad about the Verizon Wireless opening up possibility, though.

Do you play Eve Online? Another friend of mine did, until disgusted by the Band of Brothers exposure.

Anything to screw with Greenpeace.

It's just too bad Stephen Colbert wasn't an option.

Yeah, I hate the fucking environment, too.  All this clean air and biodiversity is really starting to piss me off.

Dragonlance actually has some reasonably big vocal talent attached to it. I might just have to see it now. The guy who did Killer Moth on Teen Titans is voicing Sturm Brightblade - how can I pass that up?!
