The Clean Energy Scam - lead story in Time mag this week

From his Cessna a mile above the southern Amazon, John Carter looks down on the destruction of the world's greatest ecological jewel. He watches men converting rain forest into cattle pastures and soybean fields with bulldozers and chains.

Iraq: Who won the war?

Not the 90,000 Iraqi civilians or the 4,200 US and UK troops killed since 2003. Some big winners are the money men who have made billions. The fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq comes up next Thursday. Who are the winners and who are the losers? Follow the money and politics.

Is the Toledo Push-Polling on Tax Renewal?

A couple of people have told me that the city, or an organization employed by the city, has begun to call people about the 3/4% tax renewal. Since I haven't personally received a call what is said in the call? Are they asking your views on the renewal and if you'll vote for it? Or, are they push polling by saying the police and fire staff will be laid if you don't vote for the renewal?

Mother, boyfriend indicted in toddler's death

There isn't a legal punishment that can do justice for poor Tayvon.

I suppose I'm a little disappointed to see that the mom can only get up to 10 years for her role in the toddler's death. If the abuse happened over the course of a few days, then surely she had opportunity to stop it from happening.
