• Blair condemns 'murderous carnage' of attacks

(he's starting to have fun with this, euphemysterical, ennit?)

• Four terror suspects escape U.S. Afghan base

(if they didn't want us to know this... we wouldn't. so, why do we know it? what are we supposed to think? or fear? are they coming here? did they pick-up any WMD's at Osama's Kwiki-Mart?)

• U.S, Iraq sign pact to boost trade ties

(fmr. Iraqi PM Iyad Allawi just said very publicly "Iraq is on the brink of civil war, and we never got any of the $5 bln promised for reconstruction efforts". he's a puppet who wants to get elected again and will need U.S. support, but even HE can't stand the b.s. anymore - ergo even murderers are saying: "dood, these guys are craaazy!!!" saying "boost" trade ties guarantees no promises - it makes for a nice headline though...)

• Residents rebuilding after Hurricane Dennis

(i have no idea what happened. sorry. i assume it was a hurricane, and all the stuff to find out will be the same stuff as the last hurricane, and the one before that. some stuff got busted, mebbe a couple of people hurt or killed, and a federal government cheque for a few billion dollars is waiting to be cashed. "I May Be Wrong, But I Doubt It." - Charles Barkley)

• Hispanics see historic chance with nominee

(this is a simple carrot-and-a-stick approach. now, we all know who's in power, so we all know how to get power, and few hispanic businesses doing well are putting their money-muscle behind this to fake nationalistic pride. they are actually making this decision based on greed, not principle, and it's sad that there is no examination of this for fear of seeming "racist". this deal-with-the-devil for al gonzales and a few refried red-herrings is also being sold by the GOP as "none of them are remotely conservative enough for us! but, we'll begrudingly accept one if it's progress for our hispanic brothers and sisters, and hope they act right." so, the "middle" will finally see some rare and blessed compromise coming from the fascists being beaten-back a bit - which is all a charade. al gonzales is the same guy who illegally kept Bush Jr.'s drunk-driving conviction from being revealed when he was called for jury duty, so he's as loyal to the "Yellow Rose of Texas" (quoting Gore Vidal) as anybody else. it'll be hispanically-handy to have the "right to torture" in place, Venezuela is causing much of Latin America to act up and demand an end to imperialist influence, so it won't be long before we see hispanics tortured too...)

• Kyrgyzstan leader vows to revive democracy

(sorry Mr. Mxyzptlk, too many consonants, my CPU froze up.)

• Scientists detail study of Kennewick Man

(good for them. wanna cookie?)

• New Jersey town named best in country

(and if you believe that, i've got some land in new jersey to sell you...)

In Haiti, UN troops launched a pre-dawn raid on Cite Soleil, one of the most economically-depressed neighborhoods of Port au Prince. Local residents say it might have been the deadliest attack carried out by UN troops since they were stationed in the country last year.
