Odds and Ends

I found these news stories playing in the street unsupervised; I got to them just in time...

Sen. Feingold's Iraq withdrawal vote in the Senate went to defeat today: "The Senate on Wednesday rejected legislation that would cut off money for combat operations in Iraq after March 31, 2008... But the effort picked up support from members, including presidential hopefuls previously reluctant to limit war funding — an indication of the conflict's unpopularity among voters."

Meanwhile, Britain flip-flops... Prince Harry not going to Iraq.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the funhouse known as the Middle East, Israeli attacks in Gaza continue as "widening hostilities could bring down a two-month-old unity government formed between Hamas and President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah." Plus ça change...

Here's a non-depressing news item, for once: 'Greenpeace builds replica of Noah's Ark'

Is Paul Wolfowitz in his last throes at the World Bank??

Finally, the White House/Justice Department to the Senate: Subpoena? What subpoena?
