What I Learned Today And Good Blogs To Curl Up With, Because Today I'm All About The Lists And Oh God Help Me I Can't Stop The Linking
It is time for another list. This one is going to be a list about things I don’t know. When I started the list, I was interested to see what would pop up, but nothing pops up readily, especially when it’s something you don’t know. I don’t always take the obvious into account. So, here are things I didn’t know until I looked them up:
Non-diaryland blogs of worth that I have found lately are, and again, in no particular order: finslippy, wish jar journal, greenfairydotcom, and in the shadow of a gun, which is an excellent photo blog.
I try to avoid it these days, but news of the abuse scandal is everywhere. It is believed that a United States general was well aware of the abuse going on in Abu Ghraib.

Afghanistan has a tough road ahead as it moves toward September’s elections.
Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson have put partial blame for the attacks on the World Trade Centre squarely on the shoulders of “...liberal civil liberties groups, feminists, homosexuals, and abortion rights supporters...” (This is an old story, but maddening just the same).
I wonder how many deserters there are from the United States army. I bet there’s tons.
28 people died in land mine blast in Kashmir.
British and American troops have been granted immunity from prosecution in Iraq following the June 30th handover.
The Dutch have figured out how to deal with rising ocean water – they’re building houses that float.
This may shed a little light on why gas prices are so freaking high.
The global black market for organs is alive and well.
Paul Martin has called for a June 28th election in Canada.
A SARS vaccine is being tested in China.
The Black Death could be lying in wait.
Iran has admitted to having close ties with Chalabi but denies accusations of spying.
And last but not least, read bitch. It makes me happy.
