I have neglected to mention that the thing I use my DSL for more than anything else is to listen to the progressive-slanted news program, Democracy Now!. The college radio station plays it every morning at 7am, but I don't like to get up that early if I can help it, so I usually listen via the Internet a few hours later. I listen every day, if I can find the time. I usually do yoga and shave while listening to it. Sometimes I watch the streaming video as well. It used to look like a slide sho...

On television there's a political talk show-let's call it "The McDorklin Group"-that usually features something like one conservative, four Nazis, and one nice, mild-mannered lady from Newsweek. They sit around a table every week shouting at each other all at once and competing to see who can interrupt the token female in the most obnoxious way.
