Watching the Watchers

Some quick hits from the past couple of weeks this morning. Robert Cringely explores why the new anti-on-line-gambling bill won't work and will erode Americans' privacy. President Bush continues to claim power for the executive branch that is outside the bounds of tradition and possibly even the law. And finally it appears that Jon Stewart is right, the news media are doing a disservice to the country. Apparently The Daily Show has as much substantive coverage of the news as those other "real" shows.

Oh, and one from the foreign office, Iran has considered nucs before.
