You may think Roswell is just about UFO culture tied to the alleged incident in 1947.

"I had these stereotypical alien abduction experiences when I was a kid,” Guy Malone tells me. “Little creatures with big black eyes were raping me and trying to eat me and trying to operate on me.”
Yesterday we posted this fascinating story about the discovery of four graves of some of the top leaders of the Jamestown settlement - the first major and permanent English settlement in North America and the origin point of the Virginia colony and later State of Virginia.

President Bush's Ambassador to Israel, Daniel Kurtzer, says Mike Huckabee is guilty of the same sort of "incitement" that led to the murder of Yitzhak Rabin.
Jon Stewart was stunned into silence by Huckabee's repulsive "ovens" comment. Watch.
Outrage is a cheap thing. But sharks like Huckabee make the Holocaust into a sound bite and treat Jews like some sort of yahwistic lawn jockeys, mascots, and museum pieces for hard-right faux Christianity.
Even the GOP operative who's currently serving as Israeli ambassador can't support Huckabee's "ovens" comment.
