Big Chill planned to ice the public's right to know

Big Chill planned to ice the public's right to know: "In what can only be seen as a pathetic acknowledgment that it has abandoned its constitutional compass, a lost Bush Administration has put newspapers and reporters on notice that they are now the enemy. A Big Chill is coming to ice the public's right to know.
Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez announced Sunday that prosecution, possibly under a 1917 espionage law never before used against America's free press, will be pressed into service to thwart the printing of any new classified information.
Presumably, those arrested and charged would include not only reporters, but their editors, publishers and anyone else involved the decision-making process by which a story sees print. Nor does it take a great leap of imagination to foresee that if the top hierarchy of a newspaper, radio or television station, or web site blog can be punished, so might anyone else in possession of the banned news, or anyone passing the verboten report on to someone else.

AOL News - Sir Edmund Hillary Rips Climbers Who Left Dying Man

AOL News - Sir Edmund Hillary Rips Climbers Who Left Dying Man: "A member of the party tried to give Sharp oxygen, and sent out a radio distress call before continuing to the summit, he said.

More than 40 climbers are thought to have seen him as he lay dying, and almost all continued to the summit without offering assistance.

Several parties reported seeing Sharp in varying states of health and working on his oxygen equipment on the day of his death.
Inglis, who was due to arrive back in New Zealand on Thursday, said Sharp had no oxygen when he was found. He said there was virtually no hope that Sharp could have been carried to safety from his position about 1,000 feet short of the 29,035-foot summit, inside the low-oxygen 'death zone' of the mountain straddling the Nepal-China border.
His own party was able to render only limited assistance and had to put the safety of its own members first, Inglis said Wednesday.
'I walked past David but only because there were far more experienced and effective people than myself to help him,' Inglis said. 'It was a phenomenally extreme environment; it was an incredibly cold day.'
The temperature was minus 100 at 7 a.m. on the summit, he said.

Lieutenant-Colonel Geoffrey Masters: WWII Hero Passes

Telegraph News Lieutenant-Colonel Geoffrey Masters:

Lieutenant-Colonel Geoffrey Masters, who has died aged 92, won the MC in Belgium in 1940 and a Bar in Italy three years later.

As a major in command of 54th Field Battery in September 1943 Masters led his unit ashore at Salerno in support of 9th Battalion, Royal Fusiliers. Achieving surprise, the battalion captured the town of Battipaglia and advanced beyond during the night. But at first light the Germans counter-attacked with infantry and armour, and the observation post officer with the two forward companies, who remained at his post to cover the withdrawal, was killed.

Although the enemy was on three sides Masters organised two observation posts in the town, and brought down heavy artillery fire on the enemy positions. In their efforts to provide effective support, he and his comrades were eventually surrounded. But when the Germans took the town Masters, who was wounded in the arm, escaped down a side road with the remnants of Battalion HQ, and did all that he could to protect them as they came under a hail of fire which knocked out his scout car. The citation for the Bar to his MC praised his inspirational leadership, courage and dogged determination.

Londonistan: This time the crocodile won't wait

Asia Times Online :: Asian News, Business and Economy.: BOOK REVIEW
This time the crocodile won't wait
Londonistan by Melanie Phillips

Reviewed by Spengler

In retrospect, it seems oafish of Neville Chamberlain, Britain's prime minister in 1938, to have betrayed Czechoslovakia to Nazi rule in return for the empty promise of peace. Yet an overwhelming English majority looked with horror on the prospect of confrontation with Germany and a new world war, until Adolf Hitler forced England's hand by invading Poland. 'The appeaser hopes the crocodile will eat him last,' said Winston Churchill. Today's crocodiles may not be so patient.

Opposing voices in 1938 rang lonely and shrill, and just as shrill today sounds Daily Mail columnist Melanie Phillips in her portrayal of an emasculated Britain ashamed of its own national identity and anxious to appease the 'clerical fascism' of the jihadis. That will change, perhaps even before the print is quite dry on her new book. She warns that the West faces a religious war with Islam. I concur, and recommend Londonistan as indispensable background.

Britain, Phillips warns, is reaping what it has sown. A large minority of British Muslims are disaffected at best and seditious at worst. Phillips cites a 2004 Home Office survey finding that 26% of British Muslims felt no loyalty to Britain, 13% supported terrorism, and about 1% (up to 20,000 individuals) were 'actively engaged' in terrorism or support for terrorism.

Another poll found that 32% of British Muslims agreed that 'Western society is decadent and immoral and that Muslims should seek to bring it to an end'. In the event of a violent collision between the West and Iran, for example, civil conflict might arise in Britain on a scale resembling t"

The American Thinker

The American Thinker: "On Sunday's This Week program, ABC's George Stephanopoulos interviewed John Edwards, the Democrat's nominee for vice-president in 2004. During the program, the one-term Senator from North Carolina, made a publicity-provoking comment (video here) about the man who vanquished him and his erstwhile running mate John Kerry during the tumultuous campaign.

"George W. Bush is the worst president of our lifetime," he said. Edwards went on to say that Bush is worse that the Watergate-tainted, Richard Nixon.

This, from a guy who, when debating Vice-president Dick Cheney, brought up the fact that Cheney's daughter is gay. His intent was to put his opponent in an embarrassing situation while simultaneously making points with conservative voters on the volatile issue. You can't get much lower on the evolutionary scale than using the family of your opponent to score points. Perhaps that's why Mary Cheney, Vice President Cheney's lesbian daughter, labeled Edwards a "complete and total slime" in her recent book, Now It's My Turn: A Daughter's Chronicle of Political Life.

Edwards became one of America's super-wealthy trial lawyers by winning record jury verdicts and settlements that involved personal injury litigation. While running for his senate seat, and later for president and vice-president, he repeatedly told campaign audiences that he fought on behalf of the common man against the large insurance companies.

But those with knowledge of Edwards' legal career in North Carolina tell a different story. They say he always helped the little guy as long as he got the lawyer's share of the judgments -- typically a third or even forty percent. Legal expert Walter Olson, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of the book, The Rule of Lawyers, said Edwards' success in court . . .

Chicks bash Bush--again:

The Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines apologized for disrespecting President Bush during a London concert in 2003. But now, she's taking it back.

'I don't feel that way anymore,' she told Time magazine for its issue hitting newsstands Monday. 'I don't feel he is owed any respect whatsoever.'

As war in Iraq loomed, Maines told the London audience 'we're ashamed that the president of the United States is from Texas.'

Bandmate Emily Robinson said, 'It wasn't that I didn't agree with her 100 percent; it was just, `Oh, this is going to stir something up.''

For band member Martie Maguire, the controversy was a blessing in disguise.

'I'd rather have a small following of really cool people who get it . . . than people that have us in their five-disc changer with Reba McEntire and Toby Keith.'

Duh Vinci Code!

OpinionJournal - Wonder Land: "Here's my theory of 'The Da Vinci Code.' Dan Brown was sitting one night at the monthly meeting of his local secret society, listening to a lecture on the 65th gospel, and he got to thinking: 'I wonder if there's any limit to what people are willing to believe these days about a conspiracy theory. Let's say I wrote a book that said Jesus was married. To Mary Magdalene. Who was pregnant at the Crucifixion. And she is the Holy Grail. Jesus wanted her to run the church as a global sex society called Heiros Gamos, but Peter elbowed her out of the job. Her daughter was the beginning of the Merovingian dynasty of France. Jesus' family is still alive. There were 80 gospels, not four. Leonardo DiCaprio, I mean da Vinci, knew all this. The 'Mona Lisa' is Leonardo's painting of himself in drag. Da Vinci's secret was kept alive by future members of 'the brotherhood,' including Isaac Newton, Claude Debussy and Victor Hugo. The Catholic Church is covering all this up.'
Then Dan Brown said softly, 'Would anyone buy into a plot so preposterous and fantastic?' Then he started writing."

Title IX shouldn't be used as an academic weapon: "But they are conducting a review of math, physics and engineering programs at selected universities to root out supposed bias against women and girls.

'We're in the process right now of putting together our dockets.' She assures us that these Title IX reviews are just business as usual for her department. "
If the Education Department and National Science Foundation were strictly to impose Title IX compliance standards on academic science, we could see men's participation in math, physics, technology and engineering capped at the level of female interest. That would wreak havoc in fields that drive the economy and where the USA already lags other countries.
