Trustiness

Desi at Mia Culpa linked to a very intriguing Zogby study on trustworthiness. Some highlights:

o 59% of respondents have a negative view of the current state of honesty in the US.

o 75% say they have less trust in their government than they did five years ago, and only 8% say more. (Interesting choice of timeframe there)

o 24% give the President a favorable rating for trustworthiness. The courts get 29%, the media 11%, and Congress… 3%. Ouch.

o This one is mystifying. Favorable ratings for various types of media, in ascending order:

Internet: 19%

Newspapers: 25%

Broadcast TV: 25%

Cable TV: 65%

SIXTY-FIVE PERCENT????

What. The. Bloody. Hell. I was starting to feel, well, kind of optimistic up to that point.

Random Clouds And B&W Blogging

No real theme, just some recent pics that I kinda liked.


Very dramatically lit clouds. Pretty much blind luck on my part…


More dramatic clouds. Maybe a little blown out by the sun, but still pretty cool.


This was really more about the spiderweb than the clouds. Who knew spiders liked grapes?
