Balloon Boy...

... took over the news yesterday. But I still think the "dirty thirty" are more important. Thank goodness I am not alone.

Alternet posted something last week.

Huffington post commented yesterday. (But the real star was Jon Stewart.)

Rachel Maddow commented on it last week. (Long report with other stories as well)

A two year old story from Dallas, not a well known left wing town, wonders why a woman can't get a hearing even then.

In other words, there has been coverage. But I searched in vain for major dailies like the NYTimes or the DC Post or the LATimes, or network or major cable news.

I guess the fake balloon boy is more important to us than the fact that over half the Republicans in the US Senate think rape is not a crime when corporations are involved.
