Worth the time

  • Bob Harris, guest blogging at Tom Tomorrow’s This Modern World, tells us about National Preparedness Month. Isn’t it surprising the run-up and announcement are scheduled to coincide with the GOP convention and the anniversary of September 11?
  • Juan Cole is indispensable on how we outed an al Qaeda double agent and the potential ramifications. I predict he also will be on top of the Chalabi warrants and what they mean practically.
  • The New York Times looks at the role of churches in pushing to elect Bush. As detailed below, the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls certainly fits the mode. A Canadian college professor also takes a look at the influence of fundamentalist and evangelical Christianity under Bush.
  • Tom Engelhardt of TomDispatch has an excellent personal Hiroshima Story. (You need to scroll down a bit to get to it, although the introductory material is also worthwhile).
