I wonder if all the new wetlands are in the 9th ward of New Orleans?


I've meant to blog about these guys before... I know that at least some of you will be interested by this group. They are a political action committee that is trying to counter the stronger IP legislation that the movie and music industry want.

Idol Pool

My NCAA bracket is plodding along toward mediacraty, which is better then I usualy get. So its time to turn my attention full time to my American Idol Bracket.

Mixed Signals

New good blog. Mixed Signals is published by NPR . Its kind of a blog version of All Things Considered that pulls from NPR's various reporters and sources.

I've liked. (See side-bar for link)

The NFL owners waited until a couple of extensions past the 11th hour to agree to extend their labor agreement. But they did it. (More)


So what do we do with this guy? I think there are two great questions: 1) Hall of Fame, 2) Record Books.
