One final parcel of links from what's turned out to be an interesting Monday night on the blogs. I'm still experimenting with some new software that seems to be getting better with each upgrade. Nice touch is that I can schedule posts, so I can spread things out, rather than overwhelm anyone with too many posts at once. A couple of eyebrow-raising posts in the following list: You've all seen the video by now of the New Orleans police officers beating a man this weekend. The victim was supposedly being arrested for public intoxication. Here's a follow-up. The guy says he hasn't had a drink in 25 years. Sad. The officers are stressed. But still wrong.
Does Bush even know about the impending heating crisis this winter? - Deciding between food and heat this winter in the northern states. Not a pretty picture.
From Deference to Outrage: Katrina and the Press - Shop Talk. Journalists and Katrina coverage. Great points.

BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLICANS - and you'll be singing this one.
