Culture

How Google Maps

The Great Elephant Poo Paper Company — (Thanks to lt260.)

Why We Curse — (Thanks to tillyjane.)

Trailing an Apocalypse — Ice age floods and global warming. (Many of us in my circle of family and friends are Missoula Flood enthusiasts, especially tillyjane who sent this link.)

Maps of War — (Thanks to karindira.)

The New York Times on BookMooch — (Thanks to my dad.)

Lawbreaking in America — (Thanks to danjite.)

Politics

More "phony" soliders talk about Iraq — A Washington Post op-ed from a dozen Army captains who are veterans of Iraq.

Does Constitution favor Christianity? — "In the annual survey by the First Amendment Center, three out of four people who identify themselves as evangelical or Republican believe that the Constitution establishes a Christian nation. About half of Democrats and independents do."

Nobel economics winner says market forces flawed — Darn that liberal bias of reality. Quick, get him!

WTO rules against US cotton subsidies — Darn those anti-free market foreigners! Wait, subsidies aren't part of a free market...
