# Jeff Danziger via Marc Brand's Liberty - Bush's Hot Air - cartoon commentary on the State of the Union address. Hehe. [smith2004]

# - Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). I stayed up late last night learning about CSS, which I may eventually use on this weblog. It's currently laid out with tables and uses deprecated HTML elements for lots of stuff. I don't even include a starting DOCTYPE, which makes the validators very unhappy.

# I started a Geekism Wiki, mostly as a place to put designs. It's a bare-bones beginning right now. If you want a place to put some geeky stuff, feel free to use it.

# Junker continues to post large amounts of new content at AnCap Wiki. Thanks, man.

# John Stossel at ABC News - Lies, Myths and Downright Stupidity - nine popularly held myths. Number one was revealed on last night's show, which I missed. [smith2004]

# GeekWithA.45 - Thank You, John Stossel! - the geek saw it and liked the explosion of the gun myth. [geekwitha.45]

Omitted from the transcript are clips and interview that illustrate the points made.

For examples, interviews with felons who regard armed citizens as their greatest fear, and who have no concerns about background checks because "they don't buy from gunstores anyway". Also aired were segments interviewing a woman who repelled 3 home invaders with her husband's glock, a woman with a carry permit, and others along those lines.

Considering that before this, anytime a major network has dealt with armed citizens, they have been portrayed as anything from dangerous whackos to misguided, child endangering "oughta know betters", this could very well signal a turning point in the media's treatment of us.

We're just normal, everyday Americans.
