What the Feck?

Ok. I am convinced I have contracted S.A.R.S! After running a fever on and off for the last two days and generally feeling shite, I have decided just to spend all my time surfing the net.

There was an article in the Washington Post today which highlights the fact the US Congress has authorised over $300 million dollars to create a satellite news network to compete against Al-jezerra. Is it just me or is this completely crazy? I am almost ashamed to have some American roots. How far the USA has strayed from the original founding fathers vision.
