I hadn’t thought of it that way. That’s pretty depressing.

Anita Roddick has a war Q&A: Do you know enough to justify going to war with Iraq?

Scott Rosenberg wrote an essay on the road to this war for Salon (where I just became a subscriber, BTW). Dave Winer is running with a nice introduction. Worth a read.

The graphics on the Homeland Security Dept.’s are pretty amusing. With the captions added here, they’re good for out-loud laughs.

    Homeland Security??? Duh! I’m not worried personally and don’t plan to curtail my erlatively massive travel schedule. I wouldn’t mind if I had my own jet though. But this is about Homeland Security …
    I was driving my daughter Jess (aged 22) and her friend Margaret (same age) to the San Diego airport … the end of Spring Break … and we were randomly picked by two twenty-something year old guys for a Random Search.
    The guys flirted with the girls and were so flustered one guy asked “So is somebody going on a trip?”
    I felt so safe and protected.
