Weekend Odds and Ends

Anyone have an extra iPhone? I'm willing to pay up to $27 for it. Regardless, here's news...

Lots of questions surround a defused car bomb plot in London, perhaps tied to the arrival of a new Prime Minister.

Hey, speaking of teh terror, the Supreme Court agreed to hand down another 5-4 decision potentially challenge the administration's detainee policies again: "Rejecting Bush administration arguments, the Supreme Court reversed course and agreed Friday to review whether Guantanamo Bay detainees can use the civilian court system to challenge their indefinite confinement."

Back in domestic news, Rep. John Dingell (D- Auto Industry's Pocket) and some other assholes on the House Energy and Commerce Committee defeated plans to move forward with a Senate proposal to increase gas mileage standards to 35 miles per gallon. If only liberals were as active and passionate on issues like this as the conservative base was to kill the immigration bill.

Democratic candidates held another debate last night, this one focusing on race issues.

Author/blogger Glenn Greenwald interviewed Helen Thomas on the state of the media, and the Bush administration. I just picked up his latest book-- "A Tragic Legacy: How a Good vs. Evil Mentality Destroyed the Bush Presidency" -- and highly recommend it.

Finally, Bill Moyers shares his thoughts on the Rupert Murdoch/Wall Street Journal deal.
