Oct 03, 2009 Kitty Stomping is Sick: But are depictions of animal cruelty the legal equivalent of child pornography? The Supreme Court will decide.

QUOTE: If the [Supreme] court reverses the lower court's decision and reinstates the law, images showing the intentional torture or killing of animals would be deemed illegal. But technically, so might depictions of bullfighting in Spain or fishing and hunting out of season.

Aug 17, 2009 The Muslim Madrassa Myth: The problem with Arab education goes beyond a few extremist schools.

QUOTE: [Middle Eastern] Government schools that do educate the masses are mind-numbing and anachronistic, utterly useless for helping graduates face global competition. And their failures are far more dangerous.

Aug 01, 2009 Space Junk: Earth is being engulfed in a dense cloud of hazardous debris that won't stop growing.

QUOTE: Experts calculate that debris will now strike one of the 900 active satellites in LEO every two or three years. For the first time, junk is the single biggest risk factor to equipment in some orbits.

Jun 27, 2009 A Sickening Situation

QUOTE: Since hearing [Josh] Eller's story, lawyer Elizabeth Burke has signed on 190 additional clients with complaints about burn pits at 18 military sites in Iraq and Afghanistan. Burke was shocked to learn what her clients saw incinerated [at the garbage pits] : Humvees, batteries, unexploded ordnance, gas cans, mattresses, rocket pods, and plastic and medical waste...

Jun 19, 2009 Christian Soldiers: The growing controversy over military chaplains using the armed forces to spread the Word.

QUOTE: Al-Jazeera broadcast clips filmed in 2008 showing stacks of Bibles translated into Pashto and Dari at the U.S. air base in Bagram and featuring the chief of U.S. military chaplains in Afghanistan, Lt. Col. Gary Hensley, telling soldiers to “hunt people for Jesus.” ...example of what critics call a growing culture of militarized Christianity in the armed forces.

Jun 18, 2009 Hurry Up and Type: Why your laptop runs out of juice so fast.

QUOTE: battery-life numbers are based on a benchmark test called MobileMark 2007 (MM07). AMD [computer chip] says PC makers know full well that the new tests produce misleading [battery life] numbers, but they are touting them anyway.

Jun 06, 2009 Romancing the Stones

QUOTE: In the noisy debate over the restitution of ancient artworks to their original locale, no case is more controversial or inflamed than the question of the [Greek] Parthenon marbles: should the British finally send them back?

May 11, 2009 Tax Dodge Myths: Are multinationals not paying their fair share? ( Judgment Calls)

QUOTE: But the reality is murkier; the president's accusatory rhetoric [against multinational corporations] perpetuates many myths [of them not being fair].

Nov 10, 2008 Prosecuting Johns: Why allowing Eliot Spitzer to break the law is a mistake.

QUOTE: Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer resigned in March 2008 after it was discovered that he had used women in prostitution...Last week, we learned that the former prosecutor will not be prosecuted for breaking the law.

Oct 29, 2008 Long Arm of the Law: A Chicago cop is charged with lying about abuse.

QUOTE: a suit he filed alleging that he was tortured by detectives at the infamous Area 2 unit on Chicago's South Side. The commander of that unit was Jon Burge, a man whose name has long been linked to allegations of police brutality but who has gone uncharged for more than two decades—until earlier this month.

Oct 11, 2008 A Guantánamo Homecoming: It will be harder to tune them out when they are not just nameless men behind barbed wire.

QUOTE: When the Bush administration fenced off a dusty little patch of lawlessness in Cuba, the idea was that breaking the law abroad would somehow preclude us from breaking it at home. But last week revealed—yet again—that the worst of Guantánamo was always destined to spill over into the United States...The case of 17 Uighurs—Chinese Muslims from western China's Xinjiang region—is one of the blackest chapters of the story.

Sep 27, 2008 Overlooked: The Littlest Evacuees

QUOTE: Within hours of hurricane Ike's landfall in Texas, San Antonio officials had compiled precise statistics about their evacuee situation...But there was one key group for which they had no figures: children.

Sep 11, 2008 ‘Jim Crawford’ Republicans: The GOP is working to keep eligible African-Americans from voting in several states.

QUOTE: It was a mainstay of Jim Crow segregation: for 100 years after the Civil War, Southern white Democrats kept eligible blacks from voting with poll taxes, literacy tests and property requirements...Now, with the help of a 2008 Supreme Court decision, Crawford vs. Marion County (Indiana) Election Board, white Republicans in some areas will keep eligible blacks from voting by requiring driver's licenses.

Jul 18, 2008 Mormon Beefcake: Did a frisky calendar get an LDS member excommunicated?

QUOTE: Pin-up calendars are nothing new, but this one has a twist: it shows handsome, recently returned Mormon missionaries both in and out of traditional missionary garb. That fusion of sexuality and religion in "Men on a Mission" was so combustible that last weekend the calendar's creator, Chad Hardy of Las Vegas, was excommunicated by a disciplinary council of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Jul 01, 2008 ‘The Wild Horse Is Us’: An advocate of the American West's mustangs blasts a proposed government policy to cull the herds.

QUOTE: The Bureau of Land Management announced this week that it is considering euthanizing wild horses to curb the population on the range and in federal holding facilities...But critics say that the herds have already been thinned to the edge of extinction with periodic roundups and auctions...In "Mustang," her new history of the wild horse in North America, Deanne Stillman explores why America is destroying the horse it rode in on.

Jun 30, 2008 Proud in New Delhi: India's uneasy relationship with gay pride.

QUOTE: The parades have become a regular part of the landscape in places such New York City, but in India's conservative society, participants in the parade and their audience are still getting accustomed to the celebration. Not everyone involved in the New Delhi march felt entirely comfortable bearing their faces to a frenzy of media cameras and busloads of police officers. Wearing a rainbow-colored paper mask, Ajay (he didn't want to give his last name), 26, said his gay friends in Delhi are quite open online, but that the situation on the streets is different. "We cannot hold hands in public or show affection," he said.

QUOTE: expanding domestic use of picture-taking spy satellites...[Secretary Michael Chertoff] promised strict procedures to protect the rights of Americans, including obtaining court authorization for law enforcement-related surveillance operations where appropriate.

QUOTE: A previously undisclosed CIA report written in the summer of 2002 questioned the "credibility" and "truthfulness" of an Al Qaeda detainee who became a key source for the Bush administration's claims about links between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden.

Jun 03, 2008 Sexism and the City: What's up with this vicious bashing of the 'Sex and the City' movie?

QUOTE: But when you listen to men talk about it (and this is coming from the perspective of a male writer), a strange thing happens. The talk turns hateful. Angry. Vengeful. Annoyed. It's not just that they don't want to accompany their significant others to the movie. How dare Carrie and her girls hijack the box office during a time when the Hulk, Iron Man, Indiana Jones and the good old boys of the summer usually rule?

May 08, 2008 Kepping Secrets From the CIA: Why was Langely cut out of clandestine meetings with Iranian informants? (Terror Watch)

QUOTE: In December 2001, two Pentagon Mideast experts—Larry Franklin and Harold Rhode—secretly traveled to Rome. They met with a group of Iranians who supposedly had information about plans by Iranian-backed terrorists to attack Americans—including U.S. troops who were then closing in on Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. The meetings were approved by high-level officials at the White House and the Pentagon. The CIA, however, was kept in the dark.
