I don't know why I just did that, man. Speak to you soon. He is fucking four, five, six, seven, eight bits all over the floor. In fact I think it's more than eight bits.'"

One-third of Americans very confused about Iraq
Philadelphia Inquirer | Submitted by: skuppy
"A third of the American public believes U.S. forces have found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, according to a recent poll. Twenty-two percent said Iraq actually used chemical or biological weapons. But such weapons have not been found in Iraq and were not used." But what does this mean? According to the pollster: "Given the intensive news coverage and high levels of public attention, this level of misinformation suggests some Americans may be avoiding having an experience of cognitive dissonance."

Scott Peterson getting fan mail
Modesto Bee | Submitted by: Dirty Nasty Skanky ho
"Scott Peterson whiles away the hours in his cell watching television, playing chess and reading stacks of letters from female admirers, a fellow jail inmate says. ... Deputy Tom Letras, a Sheriff's Department spokesman, confirmed that Peterson gets far more mail than most inmates. He refused to comment on the senders. 'This is a frequent phenomenon,' said Jeanette Sereno, an attorney and criminal justice professor at California State University, Stanislaus. She noted that serial killer Cary Stayner developed a close relationship with a 28-year-old Illinois woman while awaiting trial, frequently talking on the telephone with her and writing her almost daily."

NSC intelligence officer resigns, criticizes Bush
Washington Post | Submitted by: dianalily
"'The administration wasn't matching its deeds to its words in the war on terrorism. They're making us less secure, not more secure,' said Beers, who until now has remained largely silent about leaving his National Security Council job as special assistant to the president for combating terrorism. 'As an insider, I saw the things that weren't being done. And the longer I sat and watched, the more concerned I became, until I got up and walked out.' ... 'Counterterrorism is like a team sport. The game is deadly. There has to be offense and defense,' Beers said. 'The Bush administration is primarily offense, and not into teamwork.'"

Italian politician sick of illegal immigrants
BBC | Submitted by: Lydia
"A storm has erupted in Italy after a senior government minister was quoted as saying that boats carrying illegal immigrants should be shot out of the water.

'Illegal immigrants must be hounded out, either nicely or nastily. Only those with a job contract can enter the country. The others, out!,' he is quoted as saying."

'Extinct' sphincter-breathing turtle discovered
The Australian | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Scientists were beating a path to a plastic tank in Brisbane yesterday to examine a shell-backed beast they had presumed to be extinct. ... the shelled beast has another unusual characteristic scientists are keen to investigate: it breathes through its bum. Its rear orifice, called a cloaca, serves as an anus and also conceals its reproductive organs and a pair of gill-like sacs. ... Over the next few days the 1kg turtle will be measured from top to toe and then suffer a more intrusive inspection. Scientists will stick a camera-headed fibre-optic cable into his cloaca to see how his breathing apparatus works."
