On vacation for a bit 
I'll be out of town for about a week (road trip to Beantown!) with only limited access to computers so in my absence I encourage you to catch up on posts you might have missed and browse my links. Cannonfire has been quite good lately, especially this short post that puts a whole new spin on the US Attorney scandal and helps illustrate that going up against any tentacle of the Bush crime family can be bad for your health. Be safe and have a great week.

Friday the 13th Fright Night Movie Freak Out! 
This Friday the 13th I will be kid sitting my wonderful nieces, Goblina and Fantomina, and I have promised them an evening of scary movies. Now the quandry - what are good scary movies for a six and eight year old? My brother, Herr Hex, lets them watch just about anything they want (within reason - just like our old man did) and they don't have nightmares or any ill effects (so far). I do want to tread that fine line between fun horror and oh-my-god-I'm-gonna-be-scarred-for-life-thanks-Uncle-Professor. If you have any good suggestions, please click on the time stamp for this post and leave me a comment. Or email me. My short list right now is The Blob, the original House on Haunted Hill, and the Howard Hawks classic The Thing from Outer Space (a movie I watched for the first time with my dad when I was about their age). I appreciate any input.

I think they'd enjoy Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow but there might be too much head chopping in that one. For some reason I think that Sam Raimi's Evil Dead II might be fun for kids - it's so over the top I can't imagine they'd take it seriously.

Matt Drudge - Douchebag of the Week! 
And it's only Monday.

Neo-Con Piss Boy Matt Drudge has been pushing the story that CNN correspondent Michael Ware heckled John McCain on his recent trip to Baghdad. This is, obviously, wingnut payback for Ware's defenestration of McCain's claim that there are neighborhoods in Baghdad that are safe for Americans to walk through. The story has been picked up by all the usual mouthbreathers who love to smear the character of anyone who opposes this war. Of course, the whole unsourced incident was pulled out of Matt Drudge's ass and is now curiously missing from his archives. But now the right will refer to this endlessly as proof that Ware's reporting is unreliable.
