From Nealz Nuze:

Lardass beats grandmother with 2x4 for beer money.

People who think that Iraqis had it better under Saddam Hussein than they do now should take note: a video has been released that shows some of Saddam's atrocities. It's not pretty.

LA Times columnist Joel Stein says he doesn't support the troops. At least he's being open and honest, unlike all of the other Democrats on the left who say one thing, but believe another.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is calling the crazy in charge of Iran 'the new Hitler.' Will the world do anything to stop Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

GM....Ford....and now the New York Times.
Yet another corporate dinosaur in trouble because of an archaic, outmoded business model.
That it happens to be a leftist newspaper just makes it all the more ironic.

PCLinuxOS gets its own websitePCLinuxOS, a three-year-old LiveCD desktop Linux distribution that originated as a fork of Mandrake, now has its own website. PCLinuxOS.com went live earlier this week.

Choosing a desktop Linux distroEver since Linux came to the fore in the late '90s, people have had widely differing opinions about which distribution makes the best Windows desktop replacement. To his credit, DesktopLinux.com editor and inveterate operating system tester Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols isn't ducking this sticky question...
