Is Avian Flu the real WMD we should be worried about? -- very, very scary article on the bio-threats not about to be unleashed by rogue states, but from the "biological reservoir" of the animal kingdom, and helped along by "concentrated poverty" in the world's slums. If anybody needs me, I'll be hiding under my bed.
OK, I'll post something light to dispel the gloom: how about AlterNet's "Trail Mix," some comical moments from the campaign trail? Sorry, but Kucinich using a pie chart as a prop in an NPR-only debate takes the cake...well, except for the "President Governor" bit.
