Right on schedule -
Bush's poll numbers drop, anthrax "detected" in DC.

The Federal Reserve yesterday reported a positive initial test for anthrax at the center that checks incoming mail for such threats, the U.S. Postal Service said.
"This appears to be a very isolated incident and it is not clear at all specifically what, if any, piece of mail this came from," said Tom Day, vice president of engineering for the U.S. Postal Service. - link.

Faux nooze
Foreign journalists disillusioned, affronted by state of US media.

"...CNN, America's premier showcase for international news, struck the Serbian journalists as jingoistic, amateurish, shallow, and speculation-crazy, especially when compared to the generally calm and thoughtful BBC.
