A short Wrap

AP Exclusive: Cheney writes memoir

I'd buy it, he was in government longer than few other people in recent history. I am sure his ideas will be controversial but they will be interesting. His insights, well as much as he will share, about government should be good too.

Why not watch Al Jazeera, it is a solid news source from what I have seen.

The Rubber Room

Hot Air » Blog Archive » New York City paying 700 teachers to not teach

NPR did a good show about this. They basically pay people to sit in what they call "rubber rooms" and do nothing all day long. In theory they are there to wait until problems they may have had in the classroom are resolved. In reality some spend more than a year in the rubber room, some quit before they are released.

Best Week Ever » Blog Archive » Pizza Hut Rebranding Itself As “The Hut” To Become Coolest Restaurant Ever, Yo

I kind of like the change from Pizza Hut, to The Hut. I am not sure it will stick though, as it tries to hard to be hip. When you have to try to be cool, and people can see that, you are already failing.

Authors Are More Visible in Google News

I like this change, it will make it easier for writers, and make their names more important. I am sure that newspapers are as happy about it, it makes them less important in content management.

Can you find your heart?

Survey: More than half can't find heart on body diagram -

I wasn't as inclined to believe this is true, until I noticed the picture that went with the news story puts the heart in the wrong spot. I assume that beam of light is meant to be the heart. Problem is that it is placed dead center and the heart lays slightly to the left and a little higher up. (I think)

Hey if the cities are too big, why not make them smaller. As long as people aren't forced out of their homes, or the process is done with community involvement.

Gawker - The Internet Screws(?) Foreign Reporting - Current

A look at how the low cost, celeb focused news sites of the internet has made international reporting harder, and forced news organizations to operate on a smaller budget. This small budget among other things means staff aren't as secure, and don't have as much legal protection.

Looks like the big news today is about a womyn who missed the Air France flight, but died in a car accident anyways. Those who are likely to believe such things are saying this shows it was her fate to die. I don't know I believe that is true.

To meet June deadline, US and Iraqis redraw city borders |

To meet June deadline, US and Iraqis redraw city borders |

"Baghdad - On a map of Baghdad, the US Army's Forward Operating Base Falcon is clearly within city limits.

Except that Iraqi and American military officials have decided it's not. As the June 30 deadline for US soldiers to be out of Iraqi cities approaches, there are no plans to relocate the roughly 3,000 American troops who help maintain security in south Baghdad along what were the fault lines in the sectarian war."

Sounds like cheating to me...
