OpEdNews Editor Warned by Capitol Police For Article
I wrote an article the other day, Black November, in which I expressed my wish that Katherine Harris and Ken Blackwell were both losing sleep worrying about people after them for murdering democracy. I gave a detailed description of what they should worry about. Katherine Harris may actually be worrying about it. I know because I got a call from a special agent of the Capitol Police checking with me on my article. She assured me that I hadn't broken any law, that this fell under free speech, that I'd been clear that I didn't want to harm her. But, she added, other people who might read my writing might be incited to action. I assured her that was not my intent. That seemed to reassure her a bit. But then she said that I was in a "grey area."

U.S. Will Pass on Rights Council, for Now
The United States was virtually alone in voting against the council when the U.N. General Assembly approved its creation last month. The Human Rights Council will replace the highly politicized and often criticized Human Rights Commission, which was discredited in recent years because some countries with terrible human rights records used their membership to protect one another from condemnation.

Gospel of Judas Iscariot
To most Christians, Judas is seen as a traitor, the disciple who betrayed Jesus to the Romans for 40 pieces of silver. But a newly restored papyrus document dating to the 2nd century AD portrays a very different man. Judas is shown as Jesus' best friend, asked by Jesus himself to betray his identity to fulfill the prophecy and liberate his soul to ascend to heaven.
Somalia may be proxy US-Islam battleground
Somalia's worst fighting in years suggests the failed Horn of Africa state may become a new proxy battleground for Islamist militants and the United States.
Washington sees Somalia as a terrorist haven and backs the warlords in Mogadishu, which may have galvanised the Islamists against them both, analysts say.
A replay of Iraq beckons in Darfur if we send in troops
Nato is already assisting with logistics for the 7,800 African Union peacekeepers in Darfur. Bush is pushing for a large UN force - perhaps 20,000 troops - to replace the AU, arguing that this would end the fighting there. This sounds good but won't work. Putting white, western, Christian troops in Darfur would unite all those fighting each other - in a holy war against outsiders.

BUSH CRIME FAMILY:
DeLay Implicated In FL Gangland Casino Boat Owner Hit
On April 1, the Miami Herald reported that Moscatiello was a long time informant for the FBI at the time of the murder of Boulis. Moscatiello quit his association with the the FBI shortly after the murder of Boulis. Recently convicted GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his colleague Adam Kidan forced Boulis to sell Sun Cruz Casino Cruises to them in a scheme engineered by Gov. Jeb Bus to establish a GOP money launcering contrivance. The state pressured Boulis, a Greek national, to sell Sun Cruz to Abramoff because of an obscure state requirement that shipping companies be owned by U.S. citizens. Jeb Bush, using Florida's regulatory mechanisms behind the scenes, ensured Boulis was pressured to divest his interests in Sun Cruz to Abramoff.

Seven Trends Spell A U.S. Financial Crisis
"Right now we face some powerful negative forces that could lead to a dollar panic, a stock market crash, or a banking crisis," said Investment U (http://www.investmentu.com) Chairman Mark Skousen in a lecture recently at Columbia University. "The basis of my remark," says Skousen, "is a warning issued by none other than former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker. A year ago he warned that 'The U.S. is skating on increasingly thin ice...

San Francisco Bay View - National Black Newspaper of the Year
Black churches filled the void in New Orleans left by agencies and the Red Cross.
"The Black church was the first responder, and the people were prepared to come to the church who knew nothing about FEMA, who knew nothing about the Red Cross, who didn't trust the Red Cross, who certainly didn't trust the federal government." From empathizing with the emotional devastation to assisting with financial needs, food, housing, clothing and counseling, thousands of Black congregations around the nation led the way in carrying out the mission that has been the Black church's legacy in times of crisis - caring for the hurting and left out and fighting for justice.

Virtual Pandemic: 90 Days to Infect Entire U.S.
The simulation is an attempt to map out what might happen with a very uncertain bug: the avian flu virus H5N1 is a particular strain that does not yet easily pass between humans. If it morphs into such a strain, however, human deaths could mount quickly. Meantime, vaccines developed for current strains would likely not be effective against whatever variety ultimately emerges.
Stop the Madness: Make Your Own Salad Dressing
Making your own salad dressing is embarrassingly easy -- and cheaper than buying it in the store. There's no end to the dressings you can make. Novices might begin by preparing classic French vinaigrette, which is the mother lode for so many dressings. The key is to strike the proper balance among acid (vinegar, lemon juice), sweetness (olive oil) and spicy (mustard, black pepper, hot pepper). It goes without saying that the better the ingredients, the more flavorful the results.

At times during his 55-minute set, he also channeled Rick James, outrocked Lenny Kravitz and echoed David Bowie, while his six-piece co-ed biracial combo brought back memories of prime Prince & the Revolution.
