Sorry about the lack of posts. I've got a touch of whatever bug is going around lately. Hopefully I'll be back up to snuff soon.

In the meantime, a roundup of interesting stories courtesy of Mil Apodos and Vigil-Auntie.

Exxon-Mobil reports record profits, showing that times aren't tough all over. Just for the working man, as Kraft announces that it will lay off 8% of its employees.

U.S. Army undertakes Project: Gannon. Are servicemen on online gay porn sites?

Gore Vidal mixes some metaphors and writes about all the scary stuff that's happening under this administration. No wonder I'm feeling ill.

And finally, since every other blog has linked to this parody of Bush's upcoming SOTU speech, I will too. It's funny, but not exactly brilliant. Although some of the 'Bushanese' in the speech is inspired, I thought the high point was watching House Majority Leader Denny Hastert enjoy a nosh or three.
