Crusaders just waiting to get into Iraq
Christian Science Monitor | Submitted by: Rev. Soror Lucy Cannon
The people of Iraq, many of whom may be hungry, perhaps ought to follow the time-honored tradition as to what to do with foreign Christian missionaries: Eat them. "As Christian relief agencies prepare to enter Iraq, some have announced their intent to combine aid with evangelization. They include groups whose leaders have proclaimed harshly negative views of Islam. They are also friends of the president. The White House has shrugged its shoulders, saying it can't tell private groups what to do, though legal experts disagree."

Library directors like both oysters and snails on the job
AZ Central | Submitted by: Gargoyle93
"After being investigated for sexual harassment, Mesa's library director will remain on probation for one year and take special classes, even though investigators recommended she be terminated. Patsy J. Hansel acted inappropriately toward one of her employees by commenting on her legs, touching her hair and buttocks, and telling her that she loved her during an employee luncheon at a Mesa restaurant. Hansel says the allegations were the result of her asking supervisors to start tracking the employee's performance more closely. "It is clear that [she] has invented a story of sexual harassment behavior... because she was faced with a development plan to address clear performance issues." So I guess that means we'll miss the librarian's version of t.A.T.u at the ALA conference in Toronto this summer?

Washington Post | Submitted by: uscfiend

Last month, it joined the rising chorus of municipalities to pass a resolution urging local law enforcement officials and others contacted by federal officials to refuse requests under the Patriot Act that they believe violate an individual's civil rights under the Constitution. Then, the city went a step further. This little city (pop.: 16,000) has become the first in the nation to pass an ordinance that outlaws voluntary compliance with the Patriot Act."

Letter from Iraq
Counterpunch | Submitted by: dianalily
"A second vehicle drove up. The same scenario was repeated. Its passengers were killed on the spot. A grandfather was walking slowly with a cane on the sidewalk. They killed him too. As with the old man, the Marines fired on a SUV driving along the river bank that was getting too close to them. Riddled with bullets, the vehicle rolled over. Two women and a child got out, miraculously still alive. They sought refuge in the wreckage. A few seconds later, it flew into bits as a tank lobbed a terse shot into it."

CNN postings send some to early graves
c|Net | Submitted by: Squeak, the Human Chew Toy
"Rumors of their demise were greatly exaggerated, one could say, when CNN accidentally made publicly available obituaries of several international figures who are in fact still among the living. Meeting this premature fate were the likes of U.S. vice president Dick Cheney, former president Ronald Reagan, Cuban leader Fidel Castro, Pope John Paul II and South African political icon Nelson Mandela. Their obituaries were mockups prepared in advance of the actual events."
