Dental care for the poor

Personal qualms about expansion of government aside, this is a serious issue. I well remember being in that place between university and a job with a dental plan, and the choices I was forced to make at that time about my employment, etc. I would personally support any program that raised the floor even a little on baseline dental care available to the unemployed and uncovered in this country, a lot sooner than I would almost any other form of government assistance.

How DOES one back away slowly with a browser?

Maryland computer science professor James Purtilo claims that Australian science gadfly Tim Lambert combined efforts with Google, and Wikipedia, in a vast international conspiracy to deny Tim Blair and John Lott site traffic:

"Interestingly, during the time he mirrored the sites, search engines from companies having a relationship with WP (like google) tended to rate the mirrored site (from Lambert) over the actual sites of Lambert's targets (like Lott.)"

Instapundit, who has clashed with Lambert previously, links approvingly.
