Odds and Ends

I told the world to stop moving while I was away. It didn't listen. Here's the news...

Rupert Murdoch decides two NY-based newspapers wasn't enough... goes for a third.

Senate Republicans plan to happily kill an equal-pay bill.

President Bush has unveiled his latest figleaf climate change 'plan', which is being widely heralded by... the type of conservatives who don't believe in climate change anyway. Others like Gov. Schwarzenegger blast it, saying "I think it is somewhat irresponsible." To say the least.

More of the Bush administration in action: "The government is scrapping a $20 million prototype of its highly touted 'virtual fence' on the Arizona-Mexico border because the system is failing to adequately alert border patrol agents to illegal crossings, officials said."

Congratulations to the '24' creators for giving torture defenders some porn to justify it..

Supporting the troops, part 10,363: "The Veterans Administration has lied about the number of veterans who've attempted suicide, a senator charged Wednesday, citing internal e-mails that put the number at 12,000 a year when the department was publicly saying it was fewer than 800."

Oh, and fighting to kill the new GI Bill? That's part 10,364.

Jimmy Carter: 'Hamas told me they'll be nice from now on!' / Bush administration: 'STFU'.

As part of her continuing quest to out-McCain McCain, Sen. Clinton is now threatening to nuke Iran if they look at us wrong. Or something. Seriously, this woman is bad news.

Finally, Clinton advisor Terry McAuliffe's praise for Fox News becomes their new promo.
