ACORN Buster, Busted

James O'Keefe, the 25 year old film student whose ridiculous "pimp" disguise apparently fooled staffers at ACORN's Baltimore Office last year, has been arrested for entering a federal building under false pretenses and allegedly trying to plant a listening device in Senator Landrieu's (D-LA) office.

Mind you, if he was looking for more prostitutes, he would have been better off bugging the office of Louisiana's other senator.

A warning to future documentarians -- please try to comply with federal law. Really. For example, I shall taunt you with this legally obtained Disney clip. Because I went to the trouble of getting it from the official Disney Channel on Youtube. It just takes going that extra mile.

Remarks of Chairman Genachowski At Auschwitz

Genachowski is the great-grandchild of one of the 6 million. He tells her story here, and our duty to remember. Link here.

Because I really, really don't want to have any discussion on this, aprticularly for folks who may be insensitive enough to want to debate politics on this, I'm disabling comments. I should like to think well of all my friends, and it would pain me if someone felt compelled to say something inappropriate on what I find a moving speech.
