Barack Obama aide: Why Winnie the Pooh should shape US foreign policy
Richard Danzig, who served as Navy Secretary under President Clinton and is tipped to become National Security Adviser in an Obama White House, told a major foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to: if it is causing you too much pain, try something else. Mr Danzig told the Centre for New American Security: “Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.”Why do I suddenly feel so much safer?

16,500 Condoms Delivered to Antarctica Research Base : Environmental News Blog | Environmental Graffiti
Last month, researchers in Antarctica received about 16,500 condoms, which are being made available for free to avoid any uncomfortable situations. The condoms were sent with the last shipment of supplies to McMundo, a U.S. research station. The U.S. base is host to only 125 scientists over the winter, which has been the real issue here. Winter brings the region into total darkness and many of the researchers simply leave - it is a time when everybody knows everyone else and passes large amounts of time indoors. Purchasing condoms therefore, has become a somewhat uncomfortable business.
End of the World? House of Yahweh says so
It's the countdown to the end of the world -- again. Yisrayl Hawkins, head of the House of Yahweh religious sect in Abilene, said in a "20/20" segment that aired Friday, that a nuclear war will begin "soon, really soon." As in June 12. Thursday, for those who want to circle calendar dates or cancel appointments.Well, hell. After all the time and $ I spent this week landscaping, busting concrete, planting various shrubberies, and spreading mulch. And now it's all gonna go up in a nuclear conflagration.
Hawkins, who has been speaking mostly to national media of late, including CNN's Nancy Grace, currently faces trial for bigamy charges for allegedly having more than 30 wives. His trial is set for Sept. 15 if his predicted nuclear holocaust doesn't come to pass.I'm guessing nuclear war *would* be preferable than 30 ticked-off wives. Just sayin'.
Clinton to End Bid and Endorse Obama - NYTimes.com As expected, Clinton is about to call it quits. I suppose if she waits until the weekend, nobody will notice?
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will endorse Senator Barack Obama on Saturday, bringing a close to her 17-month campaign for the White House, aides said. Her decision came after Democrats urged her on Wednesday to leave the race and allow the party to coalesce around Mr. Obama.On the other hand, maybe she had to call up some of her supporters to explain the timeline, hence the delay.
“We pledged to support her to the end,” said Representative Charles B. Rangel, a New York Democrat who has been a patron of Mrs. Clinton since she first ran for the Senate. “Our problem is not being able to determine when the hell the end is.”It's always good to have a coffee-snorting moment while reading the Times.
