[Meme Watch]

Fallout From Katrina

I've been seeing a lot of of the word "incompetence" bandied about (try this editorial, for example). So I ran it past my trust meme watcher--Google News--and it does seem to be true, though less so than I imagined.

"Bush" + "incompetence" - 903 hits.
"Bush" + "incompetent" - 419 hits.

"Bush" + "lies," by way of comparison, continues to grow. It's now at 5,300. This is well above his late-2004 totals, when it might have mattered. We'll keep an eye on things and see whether incompetence becomes as common an adjective to describe Bush as liar.

igI was surfing online this morning for information on recording artists and their efforts to help Katrina victims. Then I landed on your blog and got a little distracted reading your interesting posts...

Could help spread the word on the latest news regarding music artists and helping Katrina victims?

Hurricane Katrina - southern United States - 2005

Over one million people lost their homes, their livlihoods and the numbers of those who lost their lives is yet undetermined.

Green Day, Alicia Keys, Usher and Dave Matthews have already agreed to be involved in a relief concert.

The concert will air live on three major music networks - MTV, VH1 and CMT. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross to aid US victims.

Thank you for helping to spread the word to the world, and, if you're interested in music downloads you might like this site for mp3 music...

If you want a really big laugh, type in the words — impeach bush — into a google search.
