This is what I hope the internet will increasingly be used for. Reports from both Kenya and Thailand about how the government is repressing or being confronted by their citizens while the world media looks the other way. Still, even if people know most of the time they won’t care – remember Aung San Suu Kyi.

Doonsbury gets the “Debate the Issue” ploy.

Meanwhile while America is still doing whatever it thinks it’s doing in Iraq it’s good to know that their senators time is being used up debating constructive bills like this one to make it illegal to “sell, advertise, publish or exhibit to another person any three-dimensional device designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs’“.

Remember those old chemistry sets you played with and learnt from as a child? now illegal in the USA thanks to terrorists of course.

I find it interesting that while it appears the President Bush and Tony Blair have the same strong faith and pray before making big decisions the President is up front and public about it while The Prime Minister tries to keep quiet about it. Makes you wonder which is the more genuine about their faith.
