From the Onion - Skeptic Pitied.


Michael Kelly's latest column in the Wash. Post - "Marching with Stalinists" tells us who is really behind the "peace" marches and who they're marching with.

"They" want to get at file-swappers through their ISP's. In the Inquirer - a brit tech mag.

A few months ago I recommended Bjorn Lomborg's The Skeptical Environmentalist, a statistical inquiry into the claims of Wild Environmentalism, as a refutation of the Greens/Socialists.

Reason Magazine and The Economist try to explain. Lomborg replies.
