Gleanings from the blogosphere, Sept. 29

Glenn Greenwald has a post today that I find somewhat overwrought. In the midst of all the florid prose though, he made a valid point.
And to believe that people on a one-day controlled visit get an accurate or complete picture of what goes on there requires a blind faith in the Government so absolute that it is explains most of what one needs to know about the authoritarian Bush movement. (Emphasis mine)

American democracy is based on a healthy mistrust of government and those who run it; hence the system of checks and balances. My concern with the recent detainee bill, among others, is that it puts too much power in the hands of the Executive Branch, with insufficient accountability.


From City of Brass: CAIR is sending money to Palestine to repair the churches damaged in the aftermath of the Pope's speech. There is no more effective way to disavow the actions of Muslim crazies than that.

CAIR has done more than its fair share of negative things, but we've got to give credit where credit is due. I usually try to say things on my blog that aren't being said by 5,000 other blogs. Everybody and his dog knows about the car dealership in Ohio, but not very many people are talking about the donations to churches in Palestine.

God gave us two eyes because you need more than one viewpoint to establish perspective. Think about it.
