The Earth Day environmental tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico is so typical of capitalism. BP/Haliburton know that when something went wrong there was absolutely nothing they could do about it. They also know that eventually, somewhere, something would go wrong. They thus continued to rake in the profits knowing that when the inevitable cost had to be paid, others would pay it. Now all we hear from the mainstream media is concern for BP, doing all it can in an impossible situation. In a just world, all the assets of BP and Haliburton would be taken to start to pay for the damage done. And Obama looks like a monster for calling for more of these ticking time bombs.

The first section of this column by Cockburn is the single most addled thing I've ever read by him. Senility? I'm serious.

Stooges need to read from the same page: "First flight from Baghdad to London in 20 years ends in farce with plane impounded"

"Noah’s Ark PaleoBabble Update"

"What Happened in Unit 701?" (also here and here and here):
"Other details in the apartment paint a curious if difficult to interpret portrait of Alexik. Inlaid on the floor was a handmade tile mosaic replica of the Central Intelligence Agency seal; it was about five feet in diameter. Hovering over the CIA emblem was a large, framed portrait of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez."
Alexik is from New Jersey, and described as 'Russian'. Russian + New Jersey = I wonder if he owns a moving company?
