Around The Blogs

Jeanne d'Arc trys to explain to her child about grocery store strikes and the evils of Wal-Mart (via The Mad Prophet).

The Yorkshire Ranter has more on the gangmasters who killed 19 (or more) Chinese immigrant cocklers in Britain. (And check out the comments at the bottom as well.)

rawblogXport has a tragic story about child slave laborers harvesting cocoa that goes into our M&Ms.

Nathan Newman about NY Times Columnist Frank Rich's exposure of the REAL scandal of the Superbowl Half-Time show. And it wasn't Nipplegate.

Tim Lambert writes about right-wing blogger Steve Malloy's definition of "Junk Science"
Unsuspecting visitors might think that Milloy’s site is devoted to criticizing shoddy science, but they would be wrong. If you look at what he “debunks” you will find that the real criterion for deciding what is “junk science” is not the quality of the work, but the political agenda that it might support. Studies that support a right-wing agenda are endorsed, while studies that don’t are harshly criticized.
