The American war against Afghanistan has entered its 5th day. It appears that there is now an escalation of hostilities with the Times reporting that the US is targeting Taliban troop installations. (Who knows how many thousands will die today? Likely many more than died at the WTC.)

The Times also reports that the major US TV networks have agreed to voluntary censorship of video footage from Osama bin Laden. Sheesh, I thought this was a free country? Why are we censoring things?
