So because George Galloway is opposed to the war in Iraq, he's a traitor is he? So does that me me a traitor? Does that make the vast majority of the people that I know traitors? Does that make over half the British population traitors? So much for the right to free speech in Britain.

I went to see Evelyn at the cinema this evening. As expected, it was an incredibly cheesy and schmultzy film but I have to say that I enjoyed it. I guess that I just have a very high tolerence for schmultz :-). And although Pierce Brosnan's Irish accent was passable (how can an someone who is Irish have such a bad Irish accent??), he couldn't say the word "daughter" for toffee, which caused me no end of merriment.

Artist Janis Ian has written an interesting aticle at USA Today about the myth of downloading music cutting sales. It's nice to see artists themselves saying things like this. Hopefully they will carry more weight than just 'consumers'.

Are you interested in particle physics? What do you mean no? Try this article on Jobob's homepage for a layman's guide. It's well-written and unlike some 'layman's guides', is not patronising. Um, it's also not entirely finished yet, so it may just end suddenly.

If it weren't for the fact that it's all true, the Stupid Security Awards would make for entertaining reading. As it is, it's just incredibly depressing.

The Campaign for Digital Rights has an interesting article documenting an exchange between a customer and the german subsiduary of EMI regarding corrupt CDs. I find it arrogant and repelling of the record companies to be treating customers like criminals in this way.

First a well-respected journalist is suspended for exercising his right to protest, and now a respected Intel engineer is arrested for giving to charity (see also the campaign to free him). So much for the 'land of the free'.

Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index for 2002 makes for interesting reading.
