A recent opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times, written by a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute, presents a false or unhelpful framing of the global warming debate. The article, "Triumph of Capitalism" in the newspaper's print edition, was published on Feb. 22 and written by the historian Timothy Garton Ash of Oxford University. He's perhaps one of the more liberal fellows at the conservative think tank at Stanford University. (The article's online version has a different headline.)

DNC Calls on McCain to Apologize to Troops


Washington, DC - The Democratic National Committee called on John McCain to apologize to American troops and their families who've served in Iraq for telling David Letterman on the Late Show last night that "American lives" are being "wasted" there. [CBS Late Show, 2/28/07]

In a cynical photo-op in New Orleans, today, President Bush will use the backdrop of a local charter school to promote his "No Child Left Behind" policy.

Once again the president's found
Himself being criticized roundly:


Last week, Marine Captain Jennifer Harris was buried in her hometown of Swampscott, MA. She was killed when her helicopter was shot down in Iraq.

Though the loss of all human life throughout this war - American, Coalition, and Iraqi civilian - is equally tragic, Harris' death is a reminder that our losses have come from across the demographic spectrum.

Jack should never have to spend more time behind bars
Which could badly damage both his reputation and health
But instead become a Marianas Islands garment worker
Which, you may know, is part of the U.S. Commonwealth.

"The elimination of Natanz would be a major setback for Iran's nuclear ambitions, but the conventional weapons in the American arsenal could not insure the destruction of facilities under seventy-five feet of earth and rock, especially if they are reinforced with concrete."


"Peace not war" is still the only way to save the world in which we live! A cabinet level Department of Peace is overdue; I nominate Rep. Jim McDermott for Secretary of Peace! The Department of Peace would be a welcome development since there has been a "shadow" Department of Intimidation and Revenge, operating behind the scenes from the very beginning of the Bush administration. Revenge and intimidation are the only things George Bush excels at; so the bully in chief himself is the CEO with Karl Rove and Dick Cheney being his strong-arm enforcers! Americans have not had an iota of peaceful serenity since these chickenhawk war-mongers arrived on the political landscape! Backed by their "brownshirts" and the Repuglico-fascists it's been one nasty battle after the other, and one great big aggressive, illegal, preemptive, unnecessary war! Time for a change!
