Hits, runs

- A fascinating article about the continued massive looting in Iraq by government-sponsored contractors -- and the Bush administration's complicity in this looting, perhaps the most ambitious fraud in American history -- can be read here.

- A new poll shows that Bush's approval ratings are the lowest ever, and that his most precipitous drop-off has been with white males. While I'm always happy to see that asshole floundering, I find the white-males thing disturbing -- what on earth do white guys want that George W. Bush isn't giving them? Is there anything they're not already getting? If HE'S not enough for them, who are they going to nominate next year, George Lincoln Rockwell?

- Occasionally, I will make a ridiculous, sweeping, indefensible statement. Here is one: West Side Story is indisputably the best musical of all time.

- Things we learned from the last poll I did, about three hundred years ago: Dennis Miller annoys many of you; football and basketball are the most hated sports on my friends list and baseball the most beloved (and no one much cares about hockey); "Brokeback Mountain" was the most-seen Oscar film by you, and "North Country" the least-seen; and an equal number of you found the term 'sand-nigger' offensive and delightful. In the competition to give me a new name, I'm calling dreamweasel the winner for his suggestion of "Muhammed O'Hanrahan".

- Did anyone watch HBO's new Mormon fundamentalist actiocomedramedy Big Love? Word has it that it stinks on ice depsite the dynamite cast. Can anyone confirm or deny? Is it worth my time to steal or otherwise 'acquire' this program?

THE END.
