A Google Maps Mashup for Tom Brown
There are a ton of mash-ups out there, but walk. jog. run. looks like it has a very high usefulness value. Of course, it won't substitute for Tom's can of spray paint.
This one's for all the UNIX geeks out there.

'Get Out, You Damned One'
It's the title of a novel written by Saddam Hussein. It's also the title of an op-ed piece by John Tierney that discusses the xenophobic motivations of the Iraqi insurgency.
To many Iraqis, I suppose this is Red Dawn, a movie our drill sergeants showed us when I went through basic training back in 1985. If you haven't seen it, it's a movie that depicts the occupation of the United States by Soviets and Latin American communists, and the exploits of a band of brave, patriotic teenagers (think insurgents, but not "dead-enders").
To come full circle, Operation Red Dawn was the name of the operation to capture Saddam Hussein. Weird.
