Karl's Weekend Reading

Karl is posting this from deep in enemy territory. We are in beautiful Santa Monica waiting for Karl's carbon fuel-based transportation vessel to get it's oil changed. Karl's dollars will fund madarass schools in the Middle East, which will create more victims of American Imperialism, who will grow up to eventually see an M4 muzzle flash from the other end. If this cycle of violence wasn't so much fun, we'd call for its immediate cessation and a total re-deployment of US forces to Thailand for some R&R. Since it is fun, in a pro-liberty, future-security sort of way, we'll let the anti-liberty folks make that call - most likely in a non-binding whimper.

Santa Monica is a target-rich environment. At the corner of 5th and Wilshire, we saw a 20-something male with a metal dog collar. He was with a female, which surprised us. His sister? We wish we could sit here every day.

1) Another casualty in the Putin poisoning case, this time on US soil. MSM doesn't seem too interested, which is why you come to for this information. (No outrage detected yet at the Santa Monica Farmer's Market booths.)

2) Another James Taranto masterpiece on Thursday. Here is one of many of many, this one about Gore's power needs and complaints of media bias:

So, let's sum this up: Here we have a major American politician who is calling for policies that would impose huge costs on society but appears to be profiting handsomely himself; who is leading an extravagant lifestyle while demanding sacrifices from ordinary people; and who is calling on the media to suppress the views of those with whom he disagrees, while at the same time urging more government regulation in the name of "fairness" to his partisan and ideological allies.
Why is it left to think tanks and bloggers to investigate and expose all this? Why aren't the mainstream media all over the story? Could it be . . . bias?
