"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Distraction Du Jour

No mention yet of the Downing Street Hearings on the cable news. This is not a surprise by any means, but its still disheartening. The focus of all the talking heads now is a minor quake which occurred in sourthern California, which could have, but didn't cause a tsunami...

A moderate earthquake shook most of Southern California Thursday, startling people and knocking items off shelves, desks and walls, but there were no immediate reports of significant damage or injuries.

The 1:53 p.m. quake had a preliminary magnitude of 5.3 and was centered three miles northeast of Yucaipa in San Bernardino County east of Los Angeles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. About 25 aftershocks followed in little over an hour, the strongest estimated at magnitude 3.5.

From the mouth of Jon Stewart, on Air America Radio's The O'Franken Factor April 7, 2004:

"If you've ever watched 6 year olds playing soccer, that's what the
mainstream media is like... someone kicks the ball and 100 kids chase after it hoping to be noticed, without a care as to what happens on the field."
