Judith Miller jailed after refusing to name her source for, you know, an article she didn't write. (Thanks, Bob Novak!) An analysis by Howard Kurtz states the Plame case is definied by its shadows. Also, the BBC has a fine Q&A; here's the Post editorial and the Times editorial.

SOME QUICK NEWS:
* So it turns out malpractice payouts aren't rising. Who knew!
* The food industry flexes its legal and lobbying muscles.
* Invisible workers, united by their anonymity.
* NPR's This I Believe series: Andrew Sullivan.
* NPR presents a timeline of the Scopes Monkey Trial.
* Rappers, crime, and credibility.
* Dinosaur Comics on copyright law.

In re: Malpractice - A year or two ago, NPR reported that in the previous year, malpractice payouts had not risen at all, but health insurance industry profits had risen something like 1000%. As we all know, this is the fault of trial lawyers.

Thank GOD they're doing something about the whole 'sueing Mcdonalds cause I don't have the will power to put down the cheeseburger' crap. I love that shit where they're like 'the government is siding with the bussinesses wahhhhh it should be about the people!!!" Um.. who do you think pays when the prices go up after yet another person wastes time and money sueing restaurants instead of taking personal responsibility for their waste size? Fuckers. I demand my cheeseburgers at a reasonable price!
