This (Short) Week In GOOD

This week's coming to an early end around the GOOD offices. Here are a few quick things to note before we head out:

-Sean Hannity sez: "America is the Greatest Best Country God Has Ever Given Man on the Face of This Earth." No joke; he really said that.

-The above value proposition notwithstanding, your right to privacy online is unraveling. The BBC reports that "Google must divulge the viewing habits of every user who has ever watched any video on YouTube." The EFF is not happy.

And some highlights from the GOOD blog:

-Fox News turns NYT reporters into gargoyles with Photoshop. No credibility left to lose.

-A Parsons graduate launches her high-end fashion line in war-torn Sierra Leone.

-These cartoons lampooning business jargon crack us up.

-We saw new images of the High Line park-to-be in New York.

-Efforts by a right-wing news site to replace the word "gay" with "homosexual" backfire to hilarious effect.

-Is Google deliberately disrupting anti-Obama blogs?

-Tomorrow celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Here are some other things declared on the 4th of July.
