Michael Crichton - Douchebag of the Week! 
Beyond the pale. Douchebag might not be a strong enough word. Coward is a little closer. And a bully. Crichton's problem with Crowley seems to stem from a critical essay Crowley wrote early this year about Crichton's views on global warming. I understand not liking someone's critique of your work - though you'd think a gazillionaire writer would have a little thicker skin - but libelling them in your novel hardly seems the way to handle it. And Crichton can hide behind his money in case of a lawsuit. Which makes him a bully.

I'm going to link to Crichton's web site so his site masters can report this to their boss. Please click on it. Maybe I'll show up in his next novel.

"Professor Rex liked to eat children and was especially fond of Republican babies in a glazed plum sauce. He was well known in certain circles for his sexual kinks involving watermelons and hat racks."

As to Crichton's work, well, let's just say that even in the realm of speculative fantasy the man is not known for his accuracy. Remember when the Japanese took over the country? Remember when sexual harassment lawsuits crippled the nation? Yeah, me neither.

Again, Michael Crichton is a douchebag.

Al Fayed repeats murder allegation over Diana death 

Malkin announces that she's going to Baghdad 
Pro-war writer and internment camp cheerleader Michelle Malkin says she's going to visit Iraq. We'll see. Frankly, I wonder what's taken her so long. Henry Rollins has gone. Al Franken, Robin Williams, and Ted Nugent have gone. Hell, even Jessica Simpson and 50 Cent have gone. Doesn't Michelle support the troops?

"Monster of Florence"

After reading this you'll wonder how Italian police can catch a cold, much less the most notorious serial killer in modern European history.

The mysterious Prince Turki al-Faisal 

A devil food is turning our kids into homosexuals 
Really! It's true! It's the Devil's soy products!

The gullibility of right-wingers never ceases to amaze me.

Best quote: Research in 2000 showed that a soy-based diet at any age can lead to a weak thyroid, which commonly produces heart problems and excess fat. Could this explain the dramatic increase in obesity today?

Of course! It's not the massive amounts of junk food in American diets - it's the tofu! Via Americablog.
