Hmm, when I follow actual news sites, rather than picking up random links, I get a lot more things I want to share. Funny, that.

* Leaked Red Cross report alleges torture in CIA camps.
* GOP chairman Rush Limbaugh Michael Steele hosts Bennett's radio show, comparing Obama to Nixo and denying global warming. A critique.

* Europe's crackdown on prostitution, vs. New Zealand's legalization. Despite claims, the number of women working under force doesn't seem much different. 80% of workers may be foreign but only 4% seem forcibly trafficked. High, but not the epidemic perceived.
* Self-immolation by Afghan women

* Israel's post-Gaza isolation, and Jewish anti-Zionism.

* Bill Richardson abolishes the death penalty in New Mexico but only for newly convicted criminals. So, no new additions to Death Row, but if you're already on it they'll take their chances on killing you anyway? What?
* Waterless urinals

* The most religious -- those who most believe in Heaven? -- fight hardest to stay alive, dying in more pain and further from their homes. My atheist parents died at home, in hospice. Something's wrong with this picture.
* El Salvador's evangelicals shift left. The FMLN did win, leftist president now. Time will tell if he's more like Chavez or Lula.
* US evangelicals allegedly collapsing. Christine Wicker tracks them.
