Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Sid's Fishbowl

The U.S. Congress is liberal!
The bogus UCLA study that purports to prove the existence of liberal media bias is the new darling of the wingnutosphere. Unfortunately, anyone who knows a little bit about statistics can take the same data and jump to some ironic conclusions.
I plugged the author's raw data into a state-of-the-art spreadsheet and crunched a few of the numbers myself. Surprise! According to the tautology methodology in this paper, the United States Congress has a pronounced liberal tilt! (This explains why Tom DeLay and Bill Frist are always so pissed off. Mere numeric majorities aren't enough, apparently.)
Here's how I determined that startling fact.
