On the first full day this page went live, 100,000 people visited this Rotten News page. Of course that was the day after the WTC attacks, so that number is somewhat distorted. Right now this page gets between 50,000 and 75,000 people every day.

Medal of Honor considered security risk
Washington Times | Submitted by: Geoff
Among the things to carry onto an airplane that might get you questioned (and if really lucky: strip searched), the Congressional Medal of Honor.

U.S. tried to bug Red Chinese President's jet
Washington Post | Submitted by: Soylent
The Chinese People's Liberation Army is disassembling a jumbo jet that was being refitted for use by the President of China.

More on the hot hot vampire sex
Satanshimmel | Submitted by: phope
A follow-up to yesterday's fantastic "Hot young Vampire couple whack heir to bits and drink his creamy blood" story, an article (in German, unfortunately), but with illustrations of the murderous couple.

NORAD dropped the ball, or never had it
Slate | Submitted by: Soylent
"For all its successes, the U.S. anti-terror war was conceived in sin, the sin of U.S. government negligence... [While much attention has been paid to the negligence of other government agencies,] there has been a good deal less focus on another federal fubar, that perpetrated by the Air Force's North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD)."

The Future of Ideas
Telepolis | Submitted by: Jube
"In 'The Future of Ideas' Lawrence Lessig, a professor at the Stanford Law School, conveys a bleak message: We are destroying the conditions of freedom and creativity on the Internet. Right at the moment when the Internet has begun to show its full potential for increasing growth and innovation globally, a counterrevolution is threatening, if not already succeeding, to undermine this potential."
