Katrina: Rebellion of the Talking Heads

This Metafilter thread has some amazing links. Simply amazing. Check out the Matrix shatters before the eyes of the nation (locally hosted 5mb WMV file) and the rebellion of the talking heads (which articulates what I noticed the other night — the reporters, even on Fox News, aren't regurgitating the government spin)

Naming Cuts of Beef

I'm going to make Jenn's beef brisket this weekend, but am having trouble because her recipe calls for brisket but names tritiploin in parantheses. Tiff says this is the same as shoulder roast. I'm confused. I've found beef cuts and how to understand them and retail beef terms, but I'm still confused. Can anyone help?
