Hello,

I'm trying to cut on procrastination while going through the last stretch of the semester, so I'm not reading other people's LJs. But I'm posting and reading replies to responses.

Anyway, here's a depressing Baghdad violence map applet thing from the Beeb.

Things to do:
Move the slider forwards in time. Notice that the red dots are just for 10+ death events; the total deaths for the month are much higher than what's shown. Compare the ethnic areas, pre-2006 and now.

Numbers come from Iraq Body Count.

This is an amazing Stephen Colbert clip that explains the circular reasoning that justifies Gitmo's existence... This is one of those moments where TCR beats The Daily Show hands down.

I need a Stephen Colbert icon.

Who Wants to be the Next Liberal Leader? Bob Rae tops poll in Ontario [via thestar.com]. Wow. That came out of left field... (pun not intended. heh.) Highly interesting. Sounds definitely more credible than that Ignatieff brain sewage (brain drain... get it? okay, that wasn't great) whack job.

Léo-Paul Lauzon: Nationalisons le pétrole! [via cyberpresse.ca] When the hell is that guy going to run for the NDP? He's the most prominent non-separatist socialist in the province. Well, not that prominent, but he can debate any motherfucker under the table and he swears more than I do.
