- Mother Pleas For African-Americans To Donate Marrow. There is a perennial lack of involvement by minorities in bone marrow donation to their own detriment. Whatever excuses one may make for this fall flat when one stops to consider that people die because of it. For information on being a marrow donor, call (800) 627-7692 or visit www.marrow.org.
- I wrote this back in December 2005 about then Bolivian presidential candidate Evo Morales, "If it makes you feel better to blame the US for all of your problems have at. It's not like we haven't heard it all before." And then there was this sighting of the devil
ofat the UN. In 2007 I wrote this about Hugo Chavez, "This from a man who lost an election last week and said that he had reached too far in trying to set himself up as dictator for life. Chavez planning to over turn the recent election results is just about what we've come to expect." Last month there was this, Venezuela's Chavez calls Obama "ignoramus". With that context somebody explain, this, this, and this. Actually, I was going to say that it all looked awfully naive. But given what went down during the recent tour of Europe perhaps it should have been expected.
- I hear the Somali pirates want to retaliate because the US killed three of their own and got back one of our own unharmed.

- I was going to comment on how so many media types are totally missing the point on the tea party movement but what would be the use?
