John Edwards: "The moment of truth came and went, and the President still couldn't bring himself to do the right thing." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Jay Rosen: "It's sad. That's my comment on the Swift Boat Veterans campaign to impeach the honor of John Kerry and question whether he deserved his medals." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Rogers Cadenhead: "Pilgrim's article provides a nice tutorial on how to normalize URLs for use as guid values, but he neglects to mention a salient fact: This solves a problem that no one is having." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Michael Fraase: "A transplant surgeon called from the University of Minnesota this morning to tell me they had a cadaver kidney for me (Iíve been on the transplant list for four-and-a-half years). 'Iíll pass,' I said in a quiet but steady voice. 'Call the next person on the list.'" Permanent link to this item in the archive.

NPR: "Ads attacking Sen John Kerry for lying about his Vietnam War record -- an accusation that is unproved -- appear to be eroding Kerry's standing in polls of independent voters and veterans." Permanent link to this item in the archive.

BBC: Messaging spam heads for your PCPermanent link to this item in the archive.

Love RSS.Mark Pilgrim article about RSS 2.0 guids. In theory yes people could do guids wrong, but in practice they work and are one of the most useful additions in 2.0. Guids help aggregators know for sure that they've seen an item, so they don't waste the user's time by showing it again. I wrote a howto for guids. "A convenience that many users will appreciate, especially people who are in a hurry."  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Don Park says it well. "I want Bush out and someone else in." Permanent link to this item in the archive.
