: Homeland Security says deadly ricin found in the office of Sen. Bill Frist.

The issue blog
: Here’s a blog I wish someone would create: a blog that concentrates on nothing but issues and Presidential candidates. No personality. No punditry. No horse races. No attacks. Just issues. Issues without repetition. A category for each issue or each candidate. Want to see what Kerry says about health insurance and what others say about his stance, click here. That wouild filter through all the popcorn. That would be useful.
The American Idol primary
: Oh, how I wish they’d run the next primary debate like American Idol with Simon scowling and sneering when the candidates say something stupid. Forget about the candidates snarking at each other; give us a shot at them.
The Janet Jackson conspiracy theory
: She’s a Howard Dean supporter and wanted to make his speech look tame.
Reporter, report thyself
: The BBC program(me) that aired Andrew Gilligan’s crock of crap is not hiring a new defence correspondent, which was Gilligan’s alleged post.
Instead, says the Guardian, they are hiring “an additional reporter to probe the ‘accountability’ of the government and other public bodies.”
Hmmm. After what we’ve seen lately, it seems it’s the BBC that needs someone to “probe its accountability.”
