Robert Samuelson on the growth of media bias, and what it holds for the future of news.

Moon story goes mainstream, and the accusations start flying.

Today's most misleading headline: Largest ISPs Attack 'Zombies'

* Huge defense bill passes House with the $515 million for missile defense in tact.
* US won't seek immunity for its soldiers after all. Probably because it would never get passed.
* summary of the torture/interrogation documents that are being bandied about these days.
* Interesting. Democrats file legal charges against Nader in Arizona.
* AOL employee sells 92 million user names to a spammer.
* Odd security alert at UMCP campus.
* Courtesy Norton: they may have the pistol used to assassinate Archduke Ferdinand.
* What words do linguists consider the hardest to translate?
* Lollapalooza canceled due to poor sales. I didn't even know it was still going on.
* So, what exactly goes into a $15 martini? (IMHO, crazy pills.)

Post special on "the summer of Jaws."

I'm not sure that I agree with this article about faith and the presidential race, but it's interesting nonetheless.

Oh, I disagree with Mr. Brooks early and often. I got big problems with the unsupported statement:
"It's mind-boggling. Can't the Democratic strategists read the data? Religious involvement is a much, much more powerful predictor of how someone will vote than income, education, gender or any other social and demographic category save race."

But he does write pretty well, and isn't a total ass, so hey.
