More bad journals

Synthese - Apparently criticism of intelligent design is frowned upon.

Psychology Today - Racism dressed up as science in the form of an essay by a regular contributor to their website called "Why are black women rated less physically attractive than other women?" Yes, it was quickly removed, but the fact that it was written in the first place is disturbing. How can this guy have evidence that "black women are objectively less physically attractive than other women"? Has he seen Halle Berry?

Both are added to the list.

Torture still doesn't work

I expected the right to give all the credit of Bin Laden's death to Bush (even though he said he doesn't care about finding Bin Laden), but I'm pretty upset that they would try to rewrite history by saying the information leading to it was because of "enhanced" interrogation techniques. Torture is inhuman and the fact that half the country supports it is the most worrying sign about our future. This analysis shows how Cheney and the rest of the criminals in the Bush administration are completely wrong about torture helping the US get Bin Laden.
