Oscar Fashions: Who's Wearing What on the Red Carpet

March 3, 2006

1. BILL OF [FORMER] RIGHTS: Senate Approves Patriot Act Renewal — Twists Knife in America’s Back
2. a-b. IRAQ: Civilians Bearing Brunt of Iraq Violence — and — “Torture, abuses worse than under Saddam”
3. HUMANITY: I don’t know enough about port operations to oppose the UAE port deal over security concerns, but this bothers me: Human Trafficking & Modern-day Slavery – United Arab Emerites…(U.A.E.) is a destination country for women trafficked . . . for the purpose of sexual exploitation. A far smaller number of men, women, and teenage children were trafficked to the U.A.E. to work as forced laborers. Some South Asian and East African boys were trafficked into the country and forced to work as camel jockeys.
4. a-b. MTT: IRAN: Bomb blasts hit Iran oil cities (Read.) — Beautiful Map (Look at.)
5. a-b. NUKES: U.S.-Indian Nuclear Deal Faces Obstacles — It says “obstacles” not “barriers.” We should do something about this. — And this: U.S. Enters New Nuclear Age as Bush Seeks Funds for New Generation of Nukes — Oops, too late. They held underground tests in Nevada last week.
6. KATRINA: Video Shows Blanco Saying Levees Intact — When lack of “situational awareness” rears its ugly head.
7. FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY: Senate GOP Faces Vote to Increase Debt…without an increase in the government’s ability to borrow, it would default on obligations for the first time in history sometime during the week of March 20.

    Thanks for the link you left over at my blog, and I see you have it here too. Yeah, Bush is pushing nukes on all levels suddenly now. Civilian AND military. Must have lots of friends in the nuke industries. He’s pushing us to the brink, baby. And there’s not even a damn story on it in the NYT. Amazing…

    Interesting stuff about the bombings in Iran. I wonder if it has anything to do with Iran preparing to sign that big oil deal with China? Hmmm. And now we’re getting into bed with India. The lines are being drawn.
