Breast implants save a woman's life.

Abstinence only education fails in Canton, Ohio school. Sixty five students became pregnant, so now they've decided to teach birth control methods as well.

A touching article on Mexican immigrants.

British Deputy Prime Minister says Bush is crap! Robert Fisk continues his series on Lebanon.

Senate Democrats are finally getting pissed off a Loserman, um, I mean Lieberman. Welcome to reality, folks.

Bush thinks Iraqis don't appreciate what we've brought to their country. Snip:
More generally, the participants said, the president expressed frustration that Iraqis had not come to appreciate the sacrifices the United States had made in Iraq, and was puzzled as to how a recent anti-American rally in support of Hezbollah in Baghdad could draw such a large crowd.
Roadside bomb attacks are up in Iraq in July. Snip:
“The insurgency has gotten worse by almost all measures, with insurgent attacks at historically high levels,” said a senior Defense Department official who agreed to discuss the issue only on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak for attribution. “The insurgency has more public support and is demonstrably more capable in numbers of people active and in its ability to direct violence than at any point in time.”
The U.S. military dismissed more soldiers for being homosexuals in 2005 than 2004. Because, you know, they have all the people that they need.

Craig Murray, former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, thinks that the alleged UK terrorism plot was more propaganda than anything else. There is reason to be skeptical.

Senator Orin Hatch on how terrorists love Democrats:
The senator stressed that the Middle East is the haven for terrorism and if the United States leaves too soon the terrorists will follow them back to the United States and we have World War III. "They're waiting for the Democrats here to take control, let things cool off and then strike again."
Never mind the fact that Republicans have been saying that they've been preventing terrorism the last several years. Um, I guess those attacks occurred during Republican regimes, but the Democrats will clearly invite the attacks and just let them happen. Puleeze.

Finally, check out the art work of Jasper Wong - incredible.
