See You Annan
In leaving, Kofi Annan did not ignore the war on terrorism. "We need an anti-terrorism strategy that does not merely pay lip service to the defense of human rights but is built on it," he said. "That is why secret prisons have no place in our struggle against terrorism, and why all places where terrorism suspects are detained must be accessible to the International Committee of the Red Cross. Leading promoters of human rights undermine their own influence when they fail to live up to these principles."

BUSH CRIME FAMILY:
Will Stinky Cut The Big One?
Bush is a brutal, pathological liar -- arguably a homicidal maniac. After losing two wars against helpless, unarmed nations, he's bored. The Decider is moving on to greater things, and those who know how to listen to him know the decision to nuke Iran has already been made. Before he leaves office, Bush plans to spread the same freedoms throughout Iran that Iraq is presently enjoying, only this time he has decided to attack a huge, oil-rich, armed-to-the-teeth nation which has the capacity not only to defend itself, but to wreak death and destruction upon its attackers.
The Moneychangers & The TRF (Tax Retirement Fund)
From 20,000 BC until 1900 AD most people focused 98% of their efforts and attention on the survival basics of obtaining food, shelter, raising a family, and protecting the before mentioned. The other 2% of the efforts and focus was on barter (exchange vehicles for goods), and social activities to enhance the before mentioned. Now to have food, shelter, and family, 95% of the focus of the nation has been directed to obtaining money. The social issues most are involved with are determined by money. Almost exclusively, political outcomes and direction are determined by money. Morals, religion, and spiritual enlightenment based on the environment in this country today is determined by money.
The Ninth Ward Revisited
"They need to stop this focus on downtown and the Superdome because it does a disservice to all those people who are still in very deep trouble. They need to get the cameras out of the French Quarter and go to New Orleans East, or the Lower Ninth Ward. Or go to St. Bernard Parish. You'll see that everything is not O.K. Far from it."
In Somalia, a Reckless US Proxy War
The U.S. instigation of war between Ethiopia and Somalia, two of world's poorest countries already struggling with massive humanitarian disasters, is reckless in the extreme. Unlike in the run-up to Iraq, independent experts, including from the European Union, were united in warning that this war could destabilize the whole region even if America succeeds in its goal of toppling the Islamic Courts. An insurgency by Somalis, millions of whom live in Kenya and Ethiopia, will surely ensue, and attract thousands of new anti-U.S. militants and terrorists.

More Dangerous Than Smoking? Death by Soda
Despite the barrage of marketing to the contrary, sales pitches, and misinformation, consumption of soda has been directly linked to both obesity as well as type 2 diabetes. Soft drinks are packed full of sugar and refined carbohydrates, both of which are undeniably correlated to these factors. Type 2 diabetes is also associated with a poor diet that is laden with high-fructose corn syrup and low in fiber.
"If you take two seconds to think about what you drink instead of just grabbing what's handy, you're going to increase your enjoyment exponentially."

Black Actors Describe Obstacles in Film Industry
African-American pros in the film industry say that black talent still faces obstacles -- notably an entrenched notion that overseas audiences aren't interested in movies with black casts. There is also a sense that the Academy has an unspoken-maybe even an unconscious--quota system.
