Okay, I think I might start doing a semi-regular blog round-up. Some of the entries I’ve been making have been quite lengthy, so rather than boring you with text, I’ll occasionally make posts with a few links in them, commonly referred to as a ’round-up’. That way you can choose any stories that interest you and move past ones that don’t.
On that note, here are a few stories of interest:
- Apparently 1 in 10 Americans went hungry last year.
- Here’s a good analysis of the poor questioning done by CNN in the last Democratic debate.
- Sweatshops for Jesus: crucifixes sold in US made in China
- A million homeless in Somalia
- John Ashcroft is willing to be waterboarded?
- 20,000 brain-damaged veterans are left off the wounded tally.
- Putting a human face on the victims of war
- Dirty oil money spilled on Alaskan politicians
- Private security contractor Blackwater has been involved in 56 shootings in Iraq.
- And for anyone not scared of the future yet….a creepy video.
