Clothed in dissent. American Apology Shirt sells t-shirts emblazoned with the words of George W. Bush ("In a free society, diversity is not disorder. Debate is not strife. And dissent is not revolution."); an apology for our president, written in all the offical UN languages; and excerpts from the infamous Diebold memos. The best part of sites like this is the letters page. One writer sees this apparel as "tantamount to treason."

Reagan redux. The AP, writing that Republican efforts to replace FDR with Reagan's image on the dime came in response to CBS's supposedly unfair depiction of the former president in a miniseries, reports that Nancy Reagan is against the legislation to alter the coin. Also: Alternet considers why the new HBO adaptation of Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Angels in America"--which features a far harsher critique of Reagan's AIDs policy than did the scuttled CBS miniseries--won't be the center of a rightwing media campaign.
