Rampage Leaves 10 Dead in Minn
New NRA offices are springing up like flowers
A heavily armed teen accused of killing
his grandparents later smiled and waved during
a shooting rampage at a high school as he gunned
down seven more people, brushing off pleas to stop.
The rampage at Red Lake Indian Reservation
in far northern Minnesota was the nation's worst
school shooting since the Columbine High School
massacre in 1999 that left 13 people dead.
When the rampage was over, 10 people were dead
and at least 14 others were wounded.
Police said the gunman killed himself after
exchanging fire with officers
find another $108 million in Halliburton overcharges
Pentagon auditors found another $108 million
in overcharges by Halliburton's KBR subsidiary. The overcharges
took place under KBR's multibillion dollar oil
infrastructure contract with the Army Corp of Engineers. According
to the audit, the company overcharged the military
for importing gasoline into Iraq.
In 2003, Pentagon auditors found an additional
$61 million in overcharges by KBR in relation to importing fuel into
Investigators say KBR charged the Pentagon $2.64
per gallon of gasoline while competitors were importing gasoline for
less than half that price. The Pentagon later fired
KBR from this particular task order and assigned it to an office within the
Pentagon known as the Defense Energy Support Center
(DESC). The result was a 50 percent reduction in gasoline prices
charged to U.S. taxpayers. Critics say this is
another example proving privatization of the military has failed.
Bush intentionally concealed
The Bush administration intentionally concealed
evidence of Halliburton's overcharges in violation of UN
Security Council Resolution 1483, Rep. Henry Waxman
has revealed. He said Bush, "acting at the request
of Halliburton," intentionally concealed evidence
from the International Advisory Monitoring Board (IAMB),
an international body responsible for auditing
Iraq's oil finances.
Waxman said the evidence concealed by Bush
showed KBR (Halliburton) had overcharged the Development Fund
for Iraq (DFI), which in May 2003 became the successor
to the U.N.'s Oil-for-Food Program. The now-defunct Coalition
Provisional Authority (CPA) was responsible for
managing the DFI and had given KBR a total of $1.6 billion from the fund.
The redacted audit also deleted these sentence: "KBR
was unable to demonstrate the proposal was based on actual costs";
"We consider KBR's estimating system to be inadequate"; "KBR
was unable to reconcile the proposed costs to its accounting
records"; "KBR did not always provide accurate
information"; "KBR has failed to demonstrate adequate competition in
procurement decision"; "KBR did not comply with
the stated terms and conditions of its own subcontract clauses"; and
"We found significant purchasing system deficiencies."
So, all that horseshit about
the Kofi Anon Oil for Food "scandal" was to cover the BFEE's money-making
"An ABC News poll shows that 63% support the
removal of Schiavo's feeding tube
and 70% think it is "inappropriate" for Congress
to get involved the way it has."

on the correct side of this?
Of course not.
Backs Off Bush-Iraq Praise
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
Two weeks after that Consortiumnews.com
article and a second one making a similar point,
the New York Times had come around.
Instead of granting the Bush administration "a
healthy share of the credit for many of these advances,"
a Times editorial noted that "many
of the most promising signs of change have little to do with Iraq.
The peace initiatives in Israel were made possible
when Yasir Arafat died and was replaced by a braver,
more flexible leader. The new determination of
the Lebanese people to throw out their Syrian oppressors
was sparked by the assassination of the Lebanese
nationalist, Rafik Hariri, not the downfall of Saddam Hussein.
And in Iraq itself, the voting largely excluded
the Sunni minority, without whose cooperation Iraq will never be
anything more than a civil war battleground or
a staging platform for a new dictatorship." [NYT, March 18, 2005]
Though the American people might wish that
the major news organizations would stop and think before running
with the herd, the reality is that it has fallen
to smaller outlets like our own to get in the way of these media stampedes,
at least in those first crucial days when a dangerous
consensus can take shape. And we can only continue to challenge
these rushes to judgment with the continued support
of our readers.

Hey Bart Old Buddy,
That show Boston Legal has been taking it

Yesterdays show seemed like it came right
from the pages of Bartcop. They went down to Texas to
defend a man with an IQ of 80 from the death penalty
who had been coerced into a confession.
One of the lawyers said "when I called the DA or
one of the "high court judges" to say this man was
innocent as proven by DNA evidence he GIGGLED AT
ME!". They tore into how Texas was still
responsible for 50% of all execution in the U.S.
and how could these arrogant judges be so shallow
as to not care. I just thought the giggling murder
quote was worth a mention.
Bart I do appreciate the page, I have been
so frustrated as of late (I got laid off about 2 mo's ago
from my tech job of nearly 7yrs) and this whole
Shiavo case, I simply pop to your page to lift my spirits.
Days Of Our Lives
Or, 'More proof what a hypocrite Bush is"
Bush signed a law in Texas that expressly
gave hospitals the right to remove life support if the
patient could not pay and there was no hope
of revival, regardless of the patient's family's wishes.
It is called the Texas Futile Care Law.
Under this law, a baby was removed from life support against
his mother's wishes in Texas just this week. A
68 year old man was given a temporary reprieve by the
Texas courts just yesterday. Those of us who read
liberal blogs are also aware that Republicans have
voted en masse to pull the plug (no pun intended)
on medicaid funding that pays for the kind of care
that someone like Terry Schiavo and many others
who are not so severely brain damaged need all
across this country. Those of us who read liberal
blogs also understand that that the tort reform that
is being contemplated by the Republican congress
would preclude malpractice claims like that which
has paid for Terry Schiavo's care thus far.
Nobody cares about the facts.

30 other countries to Toronto for two days.
"I'm going to be very disciplined about how we deliver

The future of a vegetative Terry Schiavo,

not because it's an easy way to score points with
dumb Americans, but because it's the right thing to do. Isn't it?
"I think so," says David Young, Bush supporter
and Schiavo family friend. Young put together a small rally
in support of the Schiavos, and means to attract
as much attention as possible to what he sees as a worthy cause.
"I mean, Schiavo is a body with a head and a pulse and
hair and stuff, right? She's not a cantaloupe or a zucchini,
so I don't get this 'vegetable' thing. Do you?"

interject the federal government into the
wrenching Schiavo family dispute. They brushed

which assigns the resolution of such disputes to
state law, and state judges. Bush flew back
from his ranch to Washington on Sunday to be in

Those are two different subjects.

approve of Bush's tactics.
You WANT me to jump in bed with Bush so you can
hang me for his crimes.
I've read the last thirty of your back issues
(re-read, for most of them) to track the history.
Here's how it shakes out:
You say two things:
1.) you'd approve of a "slap" to somebody
who was "guaranteed guilty" if it would "save 10 million lives."
I would, and that has pissed off a lot of
Then you say
2.) the "doves" would sacrifice those 10
million lives to save the slap.
That seems to be their position.
They say"No torture
of any kind for any reason ever!"
The first assertion is an opinion based
on whatever -- no problem. It's the flimsiest possible scenario,
It was meant to be a starting point - a
line of demarcation - a reference point we could look back at
and say we agreed on "A," but we draw the line
at "B," which is where that debate was going.
So far, that debate has not yet started.
...which you've already batted around in
permutations like "sometimes it's OK to smother a baby"
(because they did it on MASH), but it's
still just an opinion that affects nobody outside of your own head.
That might be the stupidest sentence ever
addressed to me,
and it's further proof that people can't debate
certain topics and keep their heads.
What is wrong with you?
That is so asinine, I can't believe you'd
sign your name to this e-mail.
I never said "sometimes
it's OK to smother a baby" (because they did it on MASH).
It was one of the most viewed programs in TV History
- I thought maybe somebody might've seen it.
In the MASH example, Hawkeye and 20
people were on a bus that was hidden by some trees.
The North Korean army was just yards away, and
a baby on the bus started crying.
If they were discovered, all 20 would certainly
be killed (the story went) so to save 20 lives,
the mother was forced to put her hand over the
baby's mouth to silence it - and the baby died.
So, it's settled, then..

Quentin Tarantino said he would repay him by directing a segment of Sin

Tarantino, a vocal proponent of film-over-digital, has said that

when a cannibalistic hit-man (Elijah Wood) murders
her. Dwight (Clive Owen) is looking to put
the hurt on Jackie Boy (Benicio Del Toro), after
witnessing his violent attitude with the local, heavily
armed prostitutes of Old Town (including Rosario
