"Think about that for a minute. If the poll is even reasonably accurate, more than a third of those Muslims living in Indonesia have confidence in a man who masterminded a plot of flying airplanes into buildings, killing 3,000 innocent Americans, and has probably inspired the cells that perpetrated the bombings in London and Madrid. Five out of 10 Muslims in Pakistan, which is supposed to be our ally in the war on terror, have confidence in a mass murderer who kills innocent men, women and children. Six out of 10 in Jordan."
-Howard Kurtz

Survey says 25,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed since the start of the invasion.

Inside the minds of suicide bombers.

How serious can the administration be about preventing nuclear terrorism if they refuse to work with other countries?

Singles night at... Wal-Mart?

Unrealistic medicine, doctors and hospitals on TV.

So, what did Shakespeare's plays actually sound like?

As long as I can still ffwd through the commercials, I don't care what stupid icons they flash at me.

Seriously, if I ever attempt to attend singles night at a WalMart, please hit me on the head until I stop moving. Dear god. Of course I haven't set foot in a WalMart in over five years so I think there's little danger of that happening unless perhaps my life is being threatened...

This has nothing to do with anything really.. but, did you know that Walt from Lost was in You Got Served? This opens up all possibilities for new Lost jokes..

The Others: "You got served!"
Michael: "Now it's on!"

Perharps all the dancing in the UK promos was only just a prelude!

"They say their accents are somewhere between Australian, Cornish, Irish and Scottish, with a dash of Yorkshire - yet bizarrely, completely intelligible if you happen to come from North Carolina."

This is amusing and true. Southern Virginia/North Carolina accents are about as close to the Queen's English (Queen Elizabeth I, that is) as you can get these days.

speak it trippingly upon the tongue
This is interesting and a worthwhile project and all, but shouldn't the dialect vary a bit depending on the character? I mean, no matter whether you're in the 16th century or the 21st, a Danish gravedigger shouldn't sound the same as an Italian nobleman. Just sayin'.
