As I start this article the evening sky is becoming a battlefield. Swollen and sullen, the storm clouds jostle for position, occasionally tossing a few salvos. In the premature twilight, window rattling thunderclaps remind me just who is in charge. Mother Nature. All of this seems apropos here in Houston on the eve of the Democratic primaries in Texas. Much like Clinton and Obama, we are hoping for clearing skies come Wednesday.
I have never been much involved in Presidential elections, voting only one time in my fifty-three years. This one has captured my attention, though, as it has... Read More
From the NYT:
As voters in Ohio, Rhode Island, Vermont and Texas headed to the polls potentially to decide the Democratic nomination for the presidency, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday urged voters to settle in for a nomination fight that could roll on for months to come.
“You know this is a long process,” Mrs. Clinton told reporters Tuesday morning outside a polling place in Houston.
It was an entirely different message from the one delivered by former President Bill Clinton just a few weeks ago, when he told Ohio and Texas voters that his wife... Read More
Great Britain’s Prince Harry is back home. No thanks to a website hell bent on telling everything it knows to the whole damn world.
Prince Harry had been deployed to Afghanistan to serve with the Household Cavalry Regiment Battlegroup and was scheduled to return home in April after his tour ended. Major news outlets knew of the royal deployment and had all agreed to withhold releasing the information until the deployment ended.
But a big-mouthed website had other plans.
As of the writing of this article, the name of the irresponsible website has not been identified,... Read More
Benazir Bhutto a été assassinée dans la ville de Rawalpindi, dans un attentat-suicide qui aura également coûté la vie à plus de 20 personnes. Elle avait déjà réchappé de justesse à une explosion lors de son retour d’exil le 18 octobre dernier qui a tué plus d’une centaine de ses supporters.
Quelques heures plus tôt, dans un quartier de la capitale Islamabad, quatre personnes avaient également été tuées dans des échanges de tirs durant une réunion... Read More
An event widely appreciated by his predecessor, former president Jacques Chirac, who was very well known for taking his time between stalls and for eating free salamis and drinking free wine happily provided by his so-called “friends”, the French farmers.
But Nicolas Sarkozy is not Jacques Chirac. M. Sarkozy, keen in rising again in the polls, decided to launch the operation “Seduce the farming industry and you get the voters next” at the farming fair (the latest poll published last Sunday in the Sunday newspaper “Journal du Dimanche” actually suggest...

Un événement très apprécié par son prédécesseur qui, on s’en souvient, y prenait vraiment son temps et s’amusait avec les petits saucissons et le petit vin gratuits offerts de bonne grâce par ses gentils amis, les agriculteurs. Mais Nicolas Sarkozy n’étant pas Jacques Chirac, quand le nouveau président se lance dans une opération séduction pour remonter un peu dans les sondages (et quels sondages ! Selon une enquête d’opinion Ifop*, à paraître dans le Journal du Dimanche... Read More
It's been called "The World's Worst Building" by Esquire magazine. Someone even had the unmitigated gall to liken it to Cinderella's Castle at Disney World. A surrealist video on YouTube even mimics the Walt Disney logo with the building's name scrawled across the front of it in that familiar Disney script font and Tinkerbell's half-circle arc over the building. The video is as engrossing as the building itself. At first glance, one can't help but stare at it. Its 75 degree angled walls are about as wrong as a building can be. Yet, there is something about the Ryugyong Hotel that keeps... Read More
