Is there any song you could listen to 20 times in a day without ever losing interest?

The Cinematic Orchestra - To Build A Home.

And many more, when I think about it.

So Janet gives a handjob to a dancer at 7PM and Eminem sings about raping a bunch of women, but it's okay. Nobody complains, nobody will be banned from anywhere.

CBS just blurred Adam/Tommy kiss, but showed the Britney/Madonna/Christina one.

And people really think there is no discrimination going on? Nice.

In striking contrast with American CEOs like those at the “Big Three” auto manufacturers, Japan Airlines’ CEO takes the bus to work, has his desk in the “bullpen” with the rest of the employees and slashed his salary to below that of his pilots (he’s currently paid about US$90,000):

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told ministry students at her former church that the United States sent troops to fight in the Iraq war on a "task that is from God."

In an address last June, the Republican vice presidential candidate also urged ministry students to pray for a plan to build a $30 billion natural gas pipeline in the state, calling it "God's will."

Subject of film 'Lorenzo's Oil' dies at 30

By SARAH BRUMFIELD, Associated Press Writer 3 minutes ago

The man whose parents' battle to save him from a nerve disease was told in the movie "Lorenzo's Oil" died Friday at his home in Virginia, having lived more than 20 years longer than doctors had predicted.

Lorenzo Odone, who doctors had predicted would die in childhood, died one day after his 30th birthday, said his father, Augusto Odone.

Lorenzo Odone had come down with aspiration pneumonia recently after getting food stuck in his lungs, his father said. He began bleeding heavily, and before an ambulance reached their home his son was dead, Odone said.

"He could not see or communicate, but he was still with us," Odone said Friday. "He did not suffer. ... That's the important thing."

Odone was found at age 6 to have adrenoleukodystrophy, or ALD. His doctors told his parents the disease — caused by a genetic mutation that causes the neurological system to break down — would lead to death in two years.

The disease leads to the accumulation of substances called very long chain fatty acids in cells, which causes irreversible damage to the material that coats nerve fibers in the brain.

Susan Sarandon and Nick Nolte starred as Michaela and Augusto Odone in 1992's "Lorenzo's Oil," which recounted their efforts to formulate the oil they said helped their son fight the neurological disease, despite lacking scientific backgrounds.

A study published in 2005, based on research with 84 boys, showed that a treatment made from olive and rapeseed oils — patented by Augusto Odone — can prevent onset of the disease's symptoms for most boys who receive an ALD diagnosis.

Odone plans to take his son's ashes to New York to mix them with those of his wife, who died in 2000. Then, Odone said, he will sell his home in Fairfax, Va., and move back to his native Italy.

Odone also plans to write a book memorializing his son, "to tell the story of Lorenzo as a way to make him live on."

An update on that torture case:

"Since 1991, police have filed 108 criminal charges against the six.

Brewster's mother, Frankie Brewster, 49, faced the most serious charges among them. She was charged in 1994 with first-degree murder, but pleaded guilty to lesser charges of manslaughter and wanton endangerment. She was released from prison in 2000 after serving five years in the death of 84-year-old Polly T. Ferrell, court records show."
