Computer Game Ads points to some interesting ideas that might develop into an educational angle of interactivity. Could any of these be adapted to a learning environment? I think so. Now to develop my skills to know how to get it done. Thanks again to Kairosnews. Also pointed to MozBlog. Weblogs: A History and Perspective from Rebecca's Pocket.

Some great stuff from Scrappleface:

Recalling Waco, Reno Slams Bush for Stalling

(2003-01-30) -- Former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, recalling her handling of the Waco siege, said today that if she were president, Iraq would be engulfed in flames by now.

"What's the hold up?" she rhetorically asked George Bush. "You've surrounded a pseudo-religious maniac who's got dangerous weapons. Set the place on fire, Mr. President. Hussein's not even an American citizen. Come on! Light her up!"

Ms. Reno called Mr. Bush a "timid Texas mouse who keeps saying 'Time is running out.'"

"Well, hickory dickery dock, let's blow up the clock, for goodness sake. Flick your Bic and let's get on with it. My boys in the BATF would have been in and out weeks ago."

Ms. Reno's publicist later indicated that the medications would soon be in balance.



NPR to Seek Democrat Presidential Nomination

(2003-01-29) -- National Public Radio (NPR) announced today it would seek the Democrat nomination for the Presidency. The decision was made by the whole staff "in communal fashion" after listening to President George Bush's state of the union address last night.

Veteran correspondent Daniel Schorr will likely serve as the titular head of the ticket, since only one name can appear on the ballot, but the entire staff will share the Oval Office if elected.

"While we were doing the post-speech analysis, we suddenly realized that we believed in all the same things the Democrat party believes," said Mr. Schorr. "It's only logical that NPR should be the party standard bearer."

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, whom Mr. Schorr referred to as "Nancy" and "Dear" during last night's post-speech coverage, endorsed the federally-funded news organization's candidacy. She will introduce legislation next week to provide additional funding to NPR.

Spokespersons for CNN, MSNBC and the New York Times said their organizations are considering presidential bids as well.
