I thought there was a problem with my layout in IE 7 for Windows. Unfortunately (or fortunately), it was entirely due to one stray right brace (“}”). Oops!

Much coverage today devoted to John Edwards’ global warming plan: from the SF Chronicle, for example. Not a very in-depth article, but it’s encouraging that (a) Edwards has a good plan and (b) it’s getting covered in the MSM.
Below is another article from “Environment & Energy Daily” (subscription only; it was forwarded to me) about John Edwards’ global warming plan.
I agree with the sentiment that this takeoff of Apple’s famed “1984” Macintosh commercial expresses about Hillary, though I humbly suggest we elect John Edwards instead.
Oy vey, I am now [but no longer as of about July 2007] the organizer of The Oakland John Edwards for President/One Corps Meetup—if you live in or near Oakland and want the United States to take steps to end poverty, curb global climate change, and make health care affordable and accessible to all people, then show up!

From the letters column on a post about the U.S. Attorney scandal (read it) on Salon:
The Authoritarians by Bob Altemeyer, a psychology professor at the University of Manitoba. He says that it’s
about what’s happened to the American government lately. It’s about the disastrous decisions that government has made. It’s about the corruption that rotted the Congress. It’s about how traditional conservatism has nearly been destroyed by authoritarianism. It’s about how the “Religious Right” teamed up with amoral authoritarian leaders to push its un-democratic agenda onto the country. It’s about the United States standing at the crossroads as the next federal election approaches…. [it’s] an easy-ride journey through some relevant scientific studies I have done on authoritarian personalities….
And by “authoritarian personalities,” he doesn’t just mean authoritarian leaders–he also means authoritarian followers. He says John Dean (Watergate figure, Goldwater conservative, and author of Conservatives without Conscience) encouraged him to write it.
I haven’t finished reading it yet, but he doesn’t seem like a wingnut, so I’ll post this.
