HCYB Thanksgiving Links

Happy Day Before Turkey Day, Y'all.......
  • The Washington Post reports that the Department of Homeland Security cannot find close to 40 contract files. That means that millions - maybe billions - of dollars have been given to "homeland security" companies, yet no records of the transactions exist. I wonder if the files were intentionally "lost." (What is "Homeland Security," anyway? Somewhere, George Orwell feels like a prophet.)
  • The Washington Post also reports that former Attorney General Janet Reno has started to oppose the Justice Department's handling of terrorist suspects, claiming that current detention policies pose a threat to civil liberties.
  • The blog Tabloid Rabies reports that Courtney Love has posed nude for a British Magazine to promote her new book Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love.
  • Gawker features a great little synopsis of the different kind of fans that attend indie rock shows. The One Louder blog features another. Indie fans think they're so witty.
  • The BBC reports that Barbara Bush - the President's daughter, not his mother - had her credit cards and cell phone stolen in Buenos Aires. After all, the Secret Service was only there to make sure she didn't get kidnapped. They didn't have time to watch her stuff, too.
