Exquisite, if bizarre, truth? Hoax? Waste of time? You make the call.

In this snippet from This American Life ADM executives are taped discussing illegal campaign contributions. Taken from "The Informant", by Kurt Eichenwald.
Americans for the first time can find out the truth about what corporate executives think of campaign finance laws -- and how laughable they find the cost of fines for illegal contributions versus the price-tag for disappointing politicians in need of cash.

I found this at the NOAA site. I hate to say it, but something provided by the Federal Government appears to be both useful, convenient and even seems to have some fun personal touches. All images provided can be freely used, so long as they are credited. Worth nosing around in, there are lots of great marine photos here, and other sections such as my favorite, the Treasures of the Library.

"If international observers were to oversee this year's US presidential campaign, there is little doubt they would declare the process undemocratic. The ruling parties -- the Democrats and the Republicans -- have used their power to restrict the opposition parties' access to the most important media events of the campaign. They have used police to prevent an opposition candidate from attending a major campaign function, and have excluded an official party's candidates from the regular ballot. And as a result of politically motivated, racially biased policies, an ethnic minority is disproportionately disenfranchised."
