Bacon, The Obsession, is being examined over at Salon.

Economists' predictions of $4 a gallon tipping point for Americans to drastically change their behavior, have apparently borne out. (Via Freakonomics.) Today I was reading that gas is actually down $4 a barrel. Who wants to bet we see $5 before the end of the year anyway?

Anyone else deeply concerned about the likely military cover up of the probable murder (and possible rape) of Pfc. LaVena Johnson? A soldier who, according to the US military, committed suicide by shooting herself with a rifle, pouring acid on her own crotch and self-immolating. Perhaps this would have worked if Pfc. Johnson's father wasn't a doctor.... Find out more here.

I've been following it for awhile. I have absolutely no trust in our Government or Army these days. Or, at the very least, I have faith in them to not behave in an ethical manner unless it benifits them.

I think that it's frustrating that I get called out for it. There's been more than one occassion where I've been accused of hating America for my views. From my point of view, you're stupid if you trust the people in power to do what's right by you. That's the principle that America was founded on. That's why we get a chance to throw the bastards out every 2 years.

I don't have any trust either. That being said, could they at least try to be sneakier?

I know they will lie to me, but a certain level of competence is always nice.
