Weekend update: Other things found this week:
Seems like I just keep getting busier and busier and with the long holiday weekend, another late update:

The links....

  • The Sports Cliche list
  • Strategy for Homeland Defense and Civil Support from U.S. DoD. (PDF)
  • Are We There Yet? A Report on Summer Traffic Bottlenecks and Steps Needed to Ensure that Our Favorite Vacation Destinations Remain Accessible from AAA.
  • NPR on Guantanamo, includes timelines.
  • Food 411 a directory and reference site.
    Governments, Politics:
  • Good links from Al Tompkins on the Supreme Court, Justice Rehnquist, and the Ten Commandments question.
  • ReligionLink on the 10 Commandments decision: lots ot good links, sources and analysis.
  • Open CRS: Congressional Research Reports. They've never been posted online in one place before, but this project attempts to make them all available...and searchable.
  • Net for Cuba: "Your educational and informational resource of the realities of Cuba today". Lots of info here, like a database of 'Cubans assasinated by Castro's Regimen'.
  • Google Earth: now a free download, lets you zoom, turn, and rotate satellite images, get directions, etc.
  • Technorati. There's a new design which didn't seem like news to me, but I've decided it makes this blog search service a much easier way to find out what's being said on topics in the blog world.
  • World Drug Report: latest stats, etc. from UN.
  • New Report on Violence and the Homeless from Natl Coalition for the Homeless.
  • TIPs in Asia: a database of 'country-specific information on trafficking in persons in multiple languages, as well as anti-trafficking news and information about individual countries.'
  • Statistical materials for learning about Japan.
  • RootsWeb's Social Security Death Index search claims to be the most up-to-date on the Web. As of today, last updated 5/18.
