Odds and Ends

Slowly coming back from the weekend. Here's miscellaneous news to get this started...

While Vice President Cheney is still holding out for good ol'-fashioned shock and awe, the few diplomacy-mongers in the administration have bitten the bullet and begun a conversation with Iran: "The United States ambassador in Baghdad said he and his Iranian counterpart agreed broadly on policy toward Iraq during four-hour groundbreaking talks on Monday, but insisted that Iran end its support for militants."


President Bush to Sudan: Would you like sanctions with that?

Barack Obama unveils his universal healthcare proposal. Basically, it's the same bandaid-on-a-gunshot-wound proposal that will just clean up around the edges, without solving the deeper problem... namely that this country runs healthcare like a business, rather than a basic human right. We can do better.

Good news for when we eventually destroy this planet... we discovered new ones!: "Astronomers have discovered 28 new planets outside of our solar system, increasing to 236 the number of known exoplanets, revealing that planets can exist around a broad spectrum of stellar types--from tiny, dim stars to giants."

Speaking of science fables ??, the Creation Museum has opened in Kentucky.

Finally, another study confirming that Fox "News" actually presents very little of it.
