    Sven, you are so right. I plan on drawing more attention to the "New New Journalism" in the months to come.

    I do not consider legislators between my legs, no recognition of a fundamental right to privacy, denial of equal protection under the law to homosexuals, and expanded on the job drug testing to be less intrusive in any way, shape, or form. The only way the Neocons will get another 8 years after Bush is by the same way we got Bush in the first place, electoral fraud and paperless, non-accountable electronic voting, something else Democrats, or more correctly, Republicrats, by and large don't seemed overly concerned about.

    INDEED – more so than the tsunami catastrophy (with all due respect to all that suffered). Why? Because that story, again, a man made catastrophe which mankind obviously is unwilling to avoid. Another bitter eye-opener, which got the rest of the world on their toes in view of the magnitude of corruption, reckless manipulation and devellish deception all under the arrogant umbrella of smiley George W. Have another “good” four years? Something you would want to wish for your worst enemy. containa.com

    The 2004 Falsies Awards is a brilliant idea! The only problem is that these Orwellian distortions (War is Peace) seem to multiply exponentially -- how are you going to keep up? By the next election, it will off the chart! I'm making a donation asap.

    I don't know if it's officially eligible for the 2004 awards, but since this is the inaugural I'd like to give a shout out to James "New New Journalism" Glassman:" <blockquote><a href="http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/features/2003/0312.confessore.html">The articles on Tech Central Station</a> address a broad range of issues, some of concern to its sponsors, many not. And most of the site's authors are no doubt merely voicing opinions they have already reached. But time and time again, TCS's coverage of particular issues has had the appearance of a well-aimed P.R. blitz. After ExxonMobil became a sponsor, for instance, the site published a flurry of content attacking both the Kyoto accord to limit greenhouse gasses and the science of global warming--which happen to be among Exxon-Mobil's chief policy concerns in Washington.</blockquote> Also to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for tilling new ground <a href="http://www.madisonrecord.com/">in the art spreading fertilizer</a>.
