More Odds and Ends

Here's some fun presidential campaign news: "For the first time the leading candidates for the presidency will hold a televised debate devoted solely to LGBT issues... [to] be held on August 9 and broadcast on gay network LOGO at 9:00 pm ET."

Primary scan of the article doesn't seem to mention a Republican debate, though. Odd.

Meanwhile, on HuffPost, Danny Schechter says 'enough already' to 2008 campaign overload.

Wheee! More fun news: "A U.S. aircraft carrier is heading to the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet area of operations, which includes the Gulf... where the U.S. has been flexing its muscles in a standoff with Iran over Tehran's nuclear programme that has stoked regional tensions."

And Al-Qaeda really seems to hate this Salman Rushdie chap.

The President's former Surgeon General says his opinions-- and those of others-- on matters like stem cell research, contraceptives, and sex education were "ignored, marginalized, or simply buried."

And a Senate panel says no $ for Cheney. We'll see if that goes anywhere in the full Senate.

Finally, the Pope says that all you heathens totally suck.
