Check out what I'm currently reading to the right. As I finish a book (note: this might take two days, or it might take two months), I'll post something about it, whether it's a review, my impressions, or a larger discussion of topics the book addresses.
That's it for now!

In the past two weeks, the following events transpired. A Department of Justice memo, authored by John Yoo, was released which authorized torture and presidential lawbreaking. It was revealed that the Bush administration declared the Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Rights to be inapplicable to “domestic military operations” within the U.S. The U.S. Attorney General appears to have fabricated a key event leading to the 9/11 attacks and made patently false statements about surveillance laws and related lawsuits. Barack Obama went bowling in Pennsylvania and had a low score.
Here are the number of times, according to NEXIS, that various topics have been mentioned in the media over the past thirty days:
“Yoo and torture” - 102
“Mukasey and 9/11″ — 73
“Yoo and Fourth Amendment” — 16
“Obama and bowling” — 1,043
“Obama and Wright” — More than 3,000 (too many to be counted)
“Obama and patriotism” - 1,607
“Clinton and Lewinsky” — 1,079
Sigh... I can't even comment further on this.

Anyway, no one seems to know where it came from. Was it made by a creationist to make fun of "Darwinians"? (Probably not.) Was it made by the pro-science people to make fun of the whole debate? (Probably.) In any event, it's great.
