Worthy causes of the day, thanks to Barry: “RIGHTS, NOT GUNS FOR ZIMBABWE” and “Moratoria on Medicaid Regulations”.
Relevant to today’s actual holiday: Rhymes with Orange 2008-04-21 and Rhymes with Orange 2008-04-23.
Relevant to one of today’s quasi-holidays: “Hubble Photographs Dozens of Colliding Galaxies ”.
Today’s news and commentary:
- “Dumb Leadership (1988)”
- “US, UK, France, walk out of UN meeting after Libya makes Nazi comparison” and “EU Raps China for Ties to `Oppressive' African States ” (Some countries are actually learning.)
- “FBI, politicos renew push for ISP data retention laws”
- “Tips for Saving Fuel”
- “Israel to pump diesel to Gaza for power plant” (What point is there providing any aid to the enemy? Didn’t they used to call that “treason”?)
- “N. Koreans Taped At Syrian Reactor”
- “EPA scientists complain about political pressure” (It is his last year of office, and Bush still has learned nothing about scientific integrity, much less political integrity.)
