A couple of items you shouldn't miss:
- Stupid American Month - They don't call August the silly season fer nuthin'. Here's a prime example (the book-burning of course, not the interfaith response), though perhaps more bigoted than merely stupid.
- Paul Krugman: "I told you so, again" - It has to be wicked f---ing frustrating to be so right and to have no one in power listen. But at least Krugman is a counterpoint to the raging stoopid at large in the land.
