Signs of the Times

From a recent
wanted ad posted on
"New York Times: Search Scientist, NYC: : The New York Times Company is looking for a Search Scientist for its new Research & Development group. The ideal candidate will be highly creative and have the hands-on ability to develop software applications based on existing and emerging search technologies for a variety of consumer devices."

NYT's Mo Dowd on Passing the Crown to Jenna. From her Saturday column: "When other officials leak top-secret stuff--even in cases where the whistleblowers feel they are illuminating unlawful acts--they are portrayed by the White House as traitors who should be investigated and fired. After the Times broke the sotory about the preisdent allowing unauthorized snooping in America, W. was outraged. The FBI and Justice Department was sicced on the leakers. "Revealing classified information," W. huffed, "is illegal, alerts our enemies and endangers our country." Really, W. should fire himself. He swore to look high and low for the scurrilous leaker and, lo and behold, he has himself in custody. Since the Bush Administration is basically a monarchy, he should pass the crown to Jenna. She couldn't do worse than this bunch of airheads and bullies."

UPDATE:'s Dan Froomkin delivers this excellent and comprehensive round-up of some of the best coverage of the most recent Bush assault on the Constitution, his express approval of Libby's leaking while threatening to prosecute others for doing so. It's a lot of reading, but I recommend you sample at least some of it. You won't regret it.
