What else is new?

* I refuse to buy the Wall Street Journal. I did read the Journal many years ago, but the new owners have added some politics to the financial news. The Journal has always been a little to the right, but now it is to the extreeeeeeeeeeeeme right. The story by The Guardian just confirms it.

* Guess what has been found? The 22 million e-mails from the George W. Bush administration have been found!!!! I'm glad I don't have to go through those e-mails! These e-mails went missing because of some glitch, but luckily someone will have access to them. CBS News:

Computer technicians have found 22 million missing White House e-mails from the administration of President George W. Bush, according to two groups that are settling lawsuits they filed over the failure by the Bush White House to install an electronic record keeping system.

The two groups made the announcement as they settled lawsuits that they filed against the Executive Office of the President in 2007....

...The two private organizations — Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and the National Security Archive — say there is not yet a final count on the extent of missing White House e-mail and there may never be a complete tally....

In a related story that I heard on NPR Radio, the specific information investigators are looking for involve the Valerie Plame case and the controversy surrounding the firing of the U.S. Attorneys during the Bush administration.
