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!

"Deadwood" creator: media dumbing down news

 ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Deadwood" creator David Milch accused news media outlets Tuesday of "infantilizing" viewers with their entertainment-style coverage of such events as the September 11 attacks and the war in Iraq.
 
"I think the influx of information, when it's not organized by any sort of emotional or spiritual principle provided by the media, is a demoralizing and corrosive process," he said during an industry forum luncheon at the Museum of Television & Radio in Beverly Hills.
 
"Disaster works; disaster sells. ... But the media is putting us in a position where we're not permitted to have 'normal' reactions."
 
He likened the media coverage during the beginning of the war in Iraq with that of a "three-week miniseries with a beginning, middle and end," where the ending was the act of the Iraqis tearing down the statue of Saddam Hussein.
