Rottenness

Two newspaper articles that point towards the subject of rottenness in today's paper. One from the NY Times (registration required) looking at post-hurricane Web sites, including one claiming that Katrina was a man-made storm designed to take control of the earth. Just so we don't think such claims a Web-based problem, the Guardian has an article on bad science and pseudo science in newspapers.

Just wanted to post the URL comparing search terms and the number of results returned:

Not only is it fun to pit search terms (names, for instance) against each other, but you can also see how variations in search terms can affect the number of results (and also "rotten information") you get back.
