Feb 09,2007
This year's State of the Union address by President George W. Bush offered little hope for the thousands of New Orleanians who fled the city in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and never returned and those who did return home. Not a single reference to the tragedy that halved the population and left the region in ruins was made. What a difference over 1 1/2 years make after the president vowed to restore New Orleans ...

Modern media is in chaos. In this digital free-for-all there are no winners, and the current paradigm is only feeding the frenzy. The filtering technologies currently in use blatantly censor content, consumer groups are justifiably up in arms over privacy breaches, and the labels are suing the individual users while holding ISPs hostage with exorbitant revenue demands. Meanwhile, the courts are reluctant to take proactive measures to stem the bloodshed. In the end, it's all ... [full story]

The budget released today by President Bush proposes major cuts in the Land and Water Conservation Fund, zeroes out funding for land owner incentive programs, cuts endangered species conservation and shortchanges wildlife refuges, thereby leaving our nation's wildlife resources in increasing jeopardy, according to Defenders of Wildlife. In total, the president's budget cuts overall appropriated funding for natural resources and the environment by nearly $1.5 billion, a 4.8 percent cut. The budget figures for the ... [full story]

Josh Wolf, named northern California's 2006 journalist of the year by Society of Professional Journalists, broke the record for the longest amount of time a reporter has spent in jail protecting his sources. Journalist and professional organizations are denouncing his continued imprisonment. "The 169th day of Josh Wolf's incarceration marks another alarming milestone in the struggle for press freedom in post-9/11 America," said Linda Foley, president of The Newspaper Guild/CWA. "What was once a cherished ... [full story]

Partially funded by conservative foundations, legal advocacy group fights for re-segregation of America In early December several hundred pro-affirmative action demonstrators carrying signs reading "Fight for Equality" gathered outside the U.S. Supreme Court to witness to an historic occasion. For the first time since the ground breaking 1954 Brown v. Board of Education, when the Supreme Court ruled against separate but equal in America's public schools, the justices were hearing a case that could test ... [full story]

Mental health screening of all children is the goal of legislation introduced into many state legislatures this year. Typical of these controversial bills is the Missouri bill that would require every Missouri school district, in collaboration with "the office of comprehensive child mental health," to develop "a policy of incorporating social and emotional development into the district's educational program." The Missouri bill requires schools to "address teaching and assessing social and emotional skills and protocols ... [full story]

This weekend's Super Bowl is a really big deal. It gets bigger every year and this year's game between the "Monsters of the Midway" and the Peyton Manning "monster passing attack" will be historical. It's historical for another reason as well, as both coaches are African-American, the very first black coaches in history to achieve this distinction. This, my friends, is a really, really big deal! They got here on the merits of talent, leadership ... [full story]

Ronen Sen is a career diplomat in India's Foreign Service and became his country's ambassador to the United States in 2004. His tenure is spanning a remarkable transformation in the once chilly U.S.-India relationship. The administration of President George W. Bush is promoting a strategic partnership with India, stressing the two countries' shared values on democracy and fighting terrorism. Sen was interviewed Jan. 16 by members of the San Diego Union-Tribune's editorial board. Q: What ... [full story]

How does our military assign people to recruiting duty? To what level of personnel is this sensitive responsibility assigned? Perhaps we should be looking for answers. Stretched thin in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army reportedly redoubled efforts to gain re-enlistments among discharged officers. The campaign included a December mailing to more than 5,100 ex-officers. And if reports are accurate, the returns have exposed some incredible oversights in military management - blunders that can only have ... [full story]

This one would grow to nearly 1,000 staffers, of whom no more than a half-dozen Americans are bilingually qualified to converse with the citizenry in the Arabic tongue. (Our typical embassy staff in a nation the size of Iraq numbers 30 to 40.) Chandrasekaran's account of the system for choosing personnel in the new embassy - as sensitive a foreign post as can be imagined - tells about all we need to know about the ... [full story]

U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., has finally announced her run for the presidency. According to her former friend, political pundit Dick Morris, Clinton will run on the "Mom Strategy," which, Morris says, "gives her a credible way to tack to the left on the war." Clinton launched her mom strategy on the ABC television show "The View" when a co-host asked her if being a mom gives "a would-be president kind of an edge up ... [full story]

The questions and doubts that abound over the current U.S. strategy to reinforce our mission in Iraq to help pacify and hold Baghdad are essential in seeking an Iraqi political, economic and diplomatic success. It is of paramount importance to allow this change of strategy to work as an alternative to courting disaster for America and our Arab allies in the region if we just walk away or redeploy in a capricious way. Attempts to ... [full story]
