London Authorities Whitewash London Subway Bombings

The July 7, 2005, subway bombings in London won't be independently investigated.

Second Iraqi Torture Center Found

A second torture center run by the Interior Ministry of the new Iraq government has been found. In the first, discovered last month, 173 prisoners were found, starving and some bearing signs of torture.

The site's creator wants to illustrate the "macroscopic effects of the decisions and behavior of our society".

From an entry on Korean air polution (quoting a Canadian teaching English in Korea):

Animal Slaves Cannot Vote

These English dogs are used for going in where the humans are scared. They have the cameras strapped to their heads so the humans can see what's going on without risking their own lives. So the animals, like the ones with guns, risk their lives, but they cannot vote.
