I seem to have found a part of the world that is not wired up. Kind of refreshing. Anyway, I don't have enough bandwidth to download all my spam, so if you need to reach me in the next couple of days via email, I suggest sending a message to dwiner at yahoo dot com. Thanks.
I keep hearing that blogging isn't journalism. No no no. That's like saying the telephone isn't journalism, or word processing isn't journalism. It's true that not all blogging is journalism. But then neither is all the stuff you read in magazines and newspapers, or hear on radio and television. We seem to need to have this discussion every month, week or day. I'm sure they had similar discussions when automatic typesetters came online.

George Bush: "I trust God speaks through me. Without that, I couldn’t do my job."
NBC News: "US military officials tell NBC News the unreleased images, show American soldiers severely beating one Iraqi prisoner to near death; apparently, raping an Iraqi female prisoner; acting inappropriately with a dead body; and Iraqi guards apparently videotaped by US soldiers raping young boys."

Scott Shuda: "My system is set to update feeds at 47 minutes past the hour."
Something unusual about the picture used in the fantasy. There's another person in the picture. After staring at it umpteen times, and reading lots of fantasies about it, I don't think anyone, including myself, had seen the guy. He's right there in the middle, can't miss him. Amazing sometimes what the eye filters out.
