We've been soaking in the Bathtub for several months, long enough that some of the links we've used have gone to the Great Internet in the Sky.
If you find a dead link, please leave a comment to that post, and tell us what link has expired.

My blog, Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, is a continuing experiment to test how to use blogs to improve and speed up learning processes for students, perhaps by making some of the courses actually interesting. It is a blog for teachers, to see if we can use blogs. It is for people interested in social studies and social studies education, to see if we can learn to get it right. It's a blog for science fans, to promote good science and good science policy. It's a blog for people interested in good government and how to achieve it.

Pick-up any book by Seymour Hersh, a former writer for The New Yorker and the NY Times. I just started My Lai 4, the horrendous massacre by Lt. Caley’s Platoon, and other elements of the Americal Division: Vietnam 1968. Hersh won a Pulitzer for it. Besides My Lai, where U. S. Troops massacred 550 Old Men, Women and Children–including babies–he also broke the story about Abu Graib, in Iraq.
When the Times got frustrated as the Washington Post’s Woodward and Bernstein were breaking story after story about Watergate, it hired Hersh to scoop them. He didn’t have access to their “usually reliable” (in Intelligence parlance) source–“Deep Throat”. But otherwise, Sy Hersh is truly The Man when it comes to Investigative Reporting.
For a stickler for details, corroborating evidence and some knowledge of National Security issues, aI believe that by book by Mr. Hersh is well worth the time.
