because that’s really my only day off and I get to catch up with the latest examples of what I already know – this nation has allowed itself to become a ship of fools.
And for today’s laundry list:
- Retired Lt. Gen. Ricardo “I didn’t know what was going on at Abu Ghraib despite it being under my command” Sanchez says the war in Iraq is a “nightmare with no end in sight.” (myway via Drudge)
- A Florida jury decided that guards beating and administering their own form of medical revival treatment to a juvenile boot camp inmate was not a crime, even though “[a]n initial autopsy by Dr. Charles Siebert, the medical examiner for Bay County, found Anderson died of natural causes from sickle cell trait [and a] second autopsy was ordered and another doctor concluded that the guards suffocated Anderson through their repeated use of ammonia capsules and by covering his mouth.” (myway via Drudge)
- And nostalgia for the era of Allen Pinkerton and Baldwin & Felts is going strong this year, if Newsweek’s article on the topic is any indication. (Newsweek, via Crooks and Liars)
The bad part is, it’s all nothing really new.
