Late last year I was proud to discover my recent Boise Weekly article, Far from the tree, found its way to the Berman Exposed website. Rick Berman is the PR flack whose astroturfing gained notoriety in ’09.

So I’ve been looking forward to hunting around the web for my latest piece, ‘Experts’ justify profiling, body scanners with familiar paranoid rhetoric, since it was published on Sunday Jan. 3rd. (READ IT AFTER THE JUMP.)

I’d say the best named sites that picked up my story are Memeorandum and Intoxination. If you haven’t already grabbed my article and posted it on your own site without asking me, here it is. (more…)
