What kind of a stupid name is "The Shrubbloggers"?    |    Why is there a "2.0" next to the crappy logo?    |    You could well starve if you feed on our RSS.

Today has been a lazy day. Not much going on. There are, however, a number of links I want to share:

Pills vs. Talking
“Chad Taylor is a concerned father and when he noticed that his 12-year old son Daniel was suffering side effects he took the boy off of Ritalin. The side effects faded but Daniel’s disruptive behavior returned. The school reported him to child services and now Taylor is facing charges of abuse and neglect because he refuses to medicate his son.”

They hate us because we are free!

Still searching for the next guitar hero
I guess these guys never heard of Adrian Belew or even Buckethead for that matter.

Beating Specialist Baker
“The prison abuse scandal refuses to die because soothing White House explanations keep colliding with revelations about dead prisoners and further connivance by senior military officers—and newly discovered victims, like Sean Baker.”

US ‘not bound by torture laws’
Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. -George Washington

Muzzling a Marine
” There’s a moment a half-hour into “Control Room,” Jehane Noujaim’s widely acclaimed new documentary about the Arab news channel Al Jazeera and media coverage of the war with Iraq, when U.S. press officer Lt. Josh Rushing discusses his reaction to the brutal images of captured and killed American soldiers that Al Jazeera chose to broadcast in March 2003 — to the condemnation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.”

Popular culture clashes with homeland security mission, panel chief says
“The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee asserted Friday that popular culture is undermining homeland security efforts by creating the impression that threats are not real.”
