From Everqueer, a Tumblr maintained by a soldier serving in Afghanistan: "Some jerk sent us two boxes of this awful book" (Bill O'Reilly's Pinheads and Patriots) instead of anything soldiers at a remote outpost in Afghanistan might need, like, say, food or soap. Just burned the whole lot of them on my Commander’s orders." O'Reilly has promoted his books by promising to send a free copy to troops serving overseas - with every $26 purchase. What a sport.


FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
