Out and about at lunch...

Woo-woo! Be a "Top Something" blogger - get press releases! As if they know you!

John, I thought FRONTLINE's next episode might interest you and your readers at Argghhh!. If you can't catch the PBS broadcast, most FRONTLINE films are available for free via streaming video a few days after the broadcast.

In "The Torture Question," airing Tuesday, October 18, at 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings), FRONTLINE traces the history of prisoner abuse in Afghanistan; Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; and Iraq since 9/11. You can read a full press release (I've excerpted a bit below) and watch a 5 min. preview here:
http://www.pbs.org/frontline/torture/ .

On a related note, FRONTLINE has organized a collection of its reports on the War in Iraq on a new portal page here:
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/saddam/

On the site you can access full-length streaming video (for free) and companion online reporting from such recent FRONTLINE documentaries as "Private Warriors," "The Soldier's Heart," "A Company of Soldiers," "Beyond Baghdad"--and many more. (We'll add a link to "The Torture Question" Web site and streaming video following its broadcast.)

Here's hoping you'll tune in on October 18. Please contact me with any questions.

Sincerely,
Jessica Smith

I dunno if I'll have the time - mebbe Ry can watch it and report out...

Speaking of Ry reporting out - he sent this yesterday, but it got lost in the shuffle... Father of the US Cavalry gets a hero's burial.

Don Surber has some "doncha regret Google" questions for some Senators, in re: Miers.

RINO Sightings... a whole lotta Miers, just be warned!

The Brigaded Blogs of the Canadians Militant hoist the Red Ensign!

On this day in 1809, the Armorer's Most Famous Relative (2nd Cousin, 6 times removed) died. Leaving behind a nice juicy controversy, too!

As a nod to certain co-workers... on this day in 1860 the Fighting Fenians of the 69th New York Infantry refused to parade (scroll down to The Irish Volunteer, stanza 4)

In other news: The Last Flying Monkey dies. The world is a poorer place.
