Camelbert cheese coming to a store near you some time in the distant future.

The European Parliament reports nearly 1,000 secret CIA flights over Europe. They also conclude that handing over terror suspects to the organization was not unusual.

The Carpetbagger Report notes a Wall Street Journal piece on further details of the Duke Cunningham scandal. Apparently, the lobbyist involved was renting out several "hospitality suites" in a hotel under his own name, possibly setting up Congressmen with prostitutes.

The Seattle Times ran an article today on national lawmaker's "Do as I say, not as I do" attitude towards energy conservation with regards to gasoline. Of course, they don't really care since taxpayers subsidize the vehicles and the gasoline and besides, these folks are often fairly wealthy. Note for Washington state residents: Maria Cantwell apparently drove to the press conference, but walked back making her only half as hypocritical as her colleagues. Here's the original article in the Washington Post.
