Hmmmm.....Rant

I haven't enjoyed Rolling Stone much in the past few years, I just can't get in to stories about the latest boy band or girl group and who they're dating and how they're all sluts. It just isn't the same without Hunter S. Thompson I guess.

But, I found myself at the airport having run out of things to read, and since Billie Joe Armstrong was on the cover I figured there would be at least one article I would enjoy in the November 17th issue. There were two.

There is also an excellent feature on global warming/the environment. I'd highly suggest picking it up for this feature, even if you don't like punk.

The short version of the story - the Bush administration is lying to us on yet another topic.Attampting to choke good science and taking the more dangerous route simply because it is hard to prove it is dangerous (though even more difficult to prove it is not dangerous). The administration is basically saying that just because you can't definitively prove that jumping off a cliff will kill you, you should go ahead and jump off the cliff.

It is well worth the read.

Mr. Bush, as you said, "fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." - I'm glad this is your second, and last possible, term - you can't fool the American people too much more.
