  Mars is essentially in the same orbit... somewhat the same distance from the sun, which is very important. We have seen pictures where there are canals, we believe, and water. If there is water, that means there is oxygen. If oxygen, that means we can breathe.

on sinclair’s classification of “news”

Tuesday, October 12th, 2004 3:16 pm

pandagon makes a good point regarding sinclair broadcasting’s classification of the anti-kerry film as “news”:

Sinclair is neither a news organization nor, as a broadcaster, charged with judging what requires reporting and what doesn’t. That the journalistic institutions of this country felt the Swift Liars had enjoyed enough undeserved attention is no more cause for Sinclair to jump into the ring than for Toys R’Us to start offering O’Neil action figures (now with decades old grudge and losing debate skills!).
