Around the Web

Digby notes that Paul Wolfowitz' infidelity is just an echo of Bush Sr's own affairs. An interesting point I learned from a link in the post was that Linda Tripp was working in the White House during Poppy's tenure, and she was the one who outed the affair to the press, just as she did during the Clinton administration.

An anonymous caller threatened to blow up Al-Jazeera's Beirut bureau for the coverage of a bombing in that city.

The Motley Fool sees a chink in Google's armor.

The Daily Howler on the incompetence of Social Security reporting.
