Just ask Damien Echols, the author of <i>Life and Death</i> and one of the <a href="http://www.sundance.tv/blog/2012/01/watch-west-of-memphis-conversation" title="West of Memphis">West Memphis Three</a>, who spent years on death row himself for a crime he didn't commit. What does he think of the show? Echols explains for the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/damien-echols/rectify-review_b_3103568.html?" target="_blank">Huffington Post</a> that even the small details that made up his experience are there:

Redford urges resistance to the dirtiest oil on the planet

Article: Redford urges resistance to the dirtiest oil on the planet

When you challenge Big Oil in Houston, you can bet the industry is going to punch back. So when I wrote in the Houston Chronicle earlier this month that we should say no to the Keystone XL pipeline, I wasn’t surprised when the project’s chief executive weighed in with a different view.

The corporate rejoinder, written by Alex Pourbaix, president for energy and oil pipelines for the TransCanada Corp., purported to cite “errors” in my oped. Let’s set the record straight, point by point.

First, the Keystone XL, as proposed, would run from Canada across the width of our country to Texas oil refineries and ports. It would carry diluted bitumen, a kind of crude oil, produced from the Alberta tar sands. On those points, we all agree.

I say this is a bad idea. It would put farmers, ranchers and croplands at risk across much of the Great Plains. It would feed our costly addiction to oil. And it would wed our future to the destructive production of tar sands crude…

Google Suggests some awful things

Article: Google Suggests some awful things

The Google Suggests feature is usually spot on, but sometimes it spits something at you that just doesn’t make much sense. The technology takes other people’s searches, caches them, and then predicts what you’re typing in the search box. The Huffington Post has asked readers to grab an image of the most inappropriate things Google…

Premiering Bruno

Article: Premiering Bruno

Sacha Baron Cohen, the mastermind behind Borat, this week unleashes the limp-wristed Bruno on theatregoers everywhere. While some gays are upset at the portrayal of the super-effeminate character, I feel just the opposite. Cohen’s act is obviously done with love, much like a drag queen’s lampooning of a woman. It’s an homage, not a mockery. Bruno has…
