Busy reading up on Japan this month. The book reviews/ commentaries will have to wait...

Not that I need any more incentive to distrust reporters. THE BOSTON GLOBE'S BOGUS SEAL HUNT STORY is about a lazy reporter faking a Nova Scotia seal hunt which because of inclement weather failed to take place. It includes numerous links to other stories on reporter-fudgers.

The Ward Churchill Notoriety Tour It's enough to recall the words of Austrian satirist Karl Kraus, who said, "The secret of the demagogue is to make himself as stupid as his audience, so they believe they are as clever as he."
