There's a new worm in town: WORM_SOBER.AG. This baby is toxic and can self propagate. You have to execute it to install it on your system, though. So far, it has been spread through emails puporting to come from the CIA or FBI, claiming that you've been detected "visiting over 30 illegal Websites." You're then asked to download and answer a questionaire. The other version hides as videos of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.

No, not the disease, the band. Jon Iverson introduced me to them on Friday and I can't stop listening to Escape From Dragon House. What do they sound like? Sort of Asian/African fusion, mixed with a heavy dose of Farfisa irony, and a splash of spaghetti-Western surrealism. In other words, probably the next Quentin Tarantino soundtrack.

On November 16, while listening to the radio, I was mesmerized by Howard Dully's audio coverage of what he found out about his own lobotomy at the age of 12 by Dr. Walter Freeman. This is powerful stuff—and I'm in awe of how even-handed Dully is in his reporting.

In 1987, one out of every 10,000 children was diagnosed with autism; in 2003, it was one out of every 166. How well has the press handled the story of a vaccine's potential involvement? Not so well, argues CJR.

Craphound has posted a letter from Amazon that tells customers they have bought a root kit infected disc and offers to take 'em back. No obfuscation, no whiny excuses about "bad customers"—just direct action.
