Et Tu, Scott?

In a book scheduled for release in April 2008, former White House Spokesman Scott McClellan implicates President Bush, Vice-President Cheney, Karl Rove, Andy Card, and Scooter Libby in the Plamegate scandal.

McClellan claims he unknowingly passed on false information.

It is debatable as to whether or not someone in McClellan's position is nothing more than a highly-paid sock puppet, or has an obligation to inform the American public that supercedes loyalty to a particular administration.

The current White House Spokesperson, Dana Perino, offering a carefully phrased denial, said, "The president has not and would not ask his spokespeople to pass on false information."

CBS News has been running a series on, 'The Secret Lives of Teens,' offering all the scary details about MySpace and other social networking sites, how teens are hiding things from their parents, and parents' efforts to fight back.

What ever happened to basic parenting and talking to your kids? Technology - from tracking cell phones to internet filters - only sends the message to our children that we don't trust them and that they can't trust us.

The original episodes of the critically-acclaimed Sesame Street are headed to DVD ... with a warning that they may not be suitable for younger children.

Cookie Monster, for example, demonstrates unhealthy eating habits. Oscar the Grouch shows signs of untreated depression. And other situations 'may not be safe.'

Padded corners for your world not included.

It only makes sense that the man who once joked that things would be easier if this country were a dictatorship would come out in unwavering support of General Pervez Musharraf, stating that Musharraf 'truly is someone who believes in democracy' and 'hasn't crossed the line'.

To recap, Musharraf has suspended his country's constitution, rebuilt the supreme court with hand-picked judges, jailed lawyers and journalists, and shut down the media while making vague promises about elections. And Bush thinks this isn't 'crossing the line'?

Skip the padded corners, I think we're in need of a padded cell.
