Dickie's Quickies

The Seattle Times this morning ran a story on an alleged secret Iranian nuclear facility. Lauren reports that the source of the information is suspect and has ties to an organization classified as "terrorist" by the State Department. Sounds like the same type of propaganda that was used to drum up support for the Iraq war.

Just found out about Bookpool - discount computer books source.

Bruce Schneier reports on a Wall Street Journal article covering the silliness of secrecy in the government. Synopsis: Feds tell pilot associations not to fly near nuclear power plants, but then refuse to tell pilots where said plants are located. Pilots then decide to take matters into their own hands and use the Internet to locate the plants and publish the results for their members. The Feds tell the pilots to take down the information because displaying it on the Internet is a security breach.

Check out Kiddie Records Weekly for stories and songs from children's albums of the 1940s and 1950s. This is a wealth of material.

In a rather twisted bit of programming, a Terri Schiavo Status plug-in has been built for Firefox users.
