A little night news

O I C. The data that led them to release the new terror warning? From info from *before 9/11.* And nothing since then. Yet, they still see fit to make it a huge announcement... right after the Democratic convention. Yeah, coincidence, right.

Also, in the midst of all the convention news, Snow is talking about raising the US debt threshold.

Howard Kurtz on partisan coverage of the convention, why polls are lame, and more.

The BBC looks at the new US mentality for the new war.

Heh. I wonder why Ehrlich fears putting slots on the ballot.

ALSO: If you didn't catch The Daily Show tonight, catch the rerun tomorrow evening. The interview is *brilliant.*

I heard it on NPR...

Speaking of Faith:

"During the past decade, there has been an explosion of films and television programs containing religious and spiritual themes. Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ was only the tip of the iceberg. As new generations of Americans work out their spiritual and religious questions, they are increasingly turning to fantasy.

"We'll explore the deeper appeal of films like Harry Potter and The Matrix, and we'll ask how fantasy in media reflects a changing spiritual imagination, especially in younger Americans."


Oh, and On the Media is rapidly becoming one of my favorite programs, as well.
