From the Cellar

Notable lower page news you might have missed today:

*We reported earlier this week that Canadian authorities had approved al-Jazeera for broadcast, but the conditions are apparently prohibitive. Will David Frum finally go home now?

*You thought MREs were bad before

*Emboldened by the Butler whitewash, Tony Blair reveals his new Five-Year Plan. I hope he wins so we can watch American “conservatives” learn to hate him again as he trades licks with President Kerry.

*Speaking of music, turns out Annie Jacobsen’s band of terrorists was, uh, just a band. Still worried? Well, Clinton W. Taylor double-checked those sketchy Ay-rabs for National Review and came to the same conclusion. Then he called for a preemptive strike on Tehran. (Just kidding – that’s Michael Ledeen‘s shtick.)
