Billmon: 03/14

It's laundering, basically: Signed Sealed Delivered

The Camera as Weapon: Home Movies

Channeling Moon of Alabama (again ;-) ): Modernizing Hemingway

Billmon is really great at finding the right contrast to demask the issue.

Hi-

This is just a heads up. Yesterday I launched a left-leaning political Scoop site that should be very familiar to users at Daily Kos. It is designed, hopefully, to be more useful to international users. Jerome told me that a lot of y'all here might be interested in taking a peek.

So, it you are interested the link is: Http://www.boomantribune.com.

Thanks.

yes. from the descriptions, and if they're anything like the photo gallery Fran pointed out a couple weeks back, these home movies could be of use for the legal teams documenting war crimes, and surely are already useful for psychologists, social critics and anti-war activists. the camera may be a weapon, but the victims are not necessarily those being shot.
