news & opinion with no titillating non-news from the major non-news channels.


I am: progressive, not a wild-eyed Progressive; liberal, but shun liberals and Liberals; conservative, but some Conservatives worry me; absolutely NOT a libertarian. I am: an idealist, but no utopian; a pragmatist, but no Machiavellian. I am a realist who dreams.


I welcome all opinions.

WaPost dickers with bickering recording

From the Washington Post,

A Spat Over Iraq Revealed On Tape: Rice and Russian Caught Bickering At Private Lunch

That alone should be enough reason to put down the paper and find something else to read.

Basically, at a meeting of foreign ministers in Moscow, a recording was "made when an audio link into the room was accidentally left on".

After reading the transcript, I think the real story is one of juvenile reporters getting a little slap and tickle "gotchas" on the foreign ministers, particularly Secretary Rice and the spokespeople at the State Department. And how did they get that recording, huh?

I guess the rest of the news from the meeting was not worth reporting.
