If Granny had wheels, she’d be a trolley

Starting with this review of a CNN.com Michael Moore’s movie “Sicko is Socko“. It prattles on and on about the inequalities and suffering that result from illness. All true most likely. Read that and ask yourself, “So What?” Is the same leviathan that brought you the Iraq War (or “Peace” if you prefer) likely to improve matters? Or for that matter, one that couldn’t even find a way to discreetly have sex with interns?

The second one is “What if Lincoln Had Survived?“, also on CNN.com. If they had the medical technology of today but not the 25th Amendment, what would have happened?

Isn’t there some news site that caters to the person who is interested in news?

For far better non-news brain candy, check out this history of the 1920 Wall Street bombing. The perpetrators of that attack, much like the anthrax mailer, were never caught.
