Bob Waldrop, on the US Catholic Bishops

These documents are the latest in a series of morally problematic statements on Iraq from the U.S. Bishops’ Conference. The bishops ignore their own personal responsibility for our nation’s disastrous war policy.

War is no longer peace, now it is “responsible transition”.

Virus: My office is becoming more and more Linux-based, and while there are some growing pains, they seem worthwhile when I read about how a virus attack screwed up the Telegram & Gazette yesterday. Circumstantial evidence suggests they’re still trying to get back on track.

Morningstar Egg Campaign: Not only is the campaign to get Morningstar Farms to stop using eggs in their veggie products a good one, but they have an elegant four-page-website. (via Eric)

When I visit my parents, I eat huge amounts of Morningstar Farms stuff.
