author: spitfire Summary of the KBOO am news for Monday, December 12th, 2005
1. The Hong Kong government is mustering all its propaganda skills to create a climate of fear as the ministerial begins. Between 2 and 10 thousand activists to challenge the agenda (which is a done deal, but it's the thought that counts.).
2. Interview with Mokul Sharma of Peoples' Caravan.
3. Officials explained the Medicare Drug Benefit to Oregonians at a fair on Saturday (But let me do so again: the "benefit" refers to pharmaceutical companies, not consumers.).
4. So called 'quick cash' outlets, payday loan and car title lenders are bankrupting people in Oregon who are already miserably poor. And these places are multiplying exponentially. (I'm still waiting to see how far this is going to go. The nation as reaching so many plausible tipping points, it's come full circle)
5. SW Oregon's Rogue-Siskiyou National Forest has become the latest to turn away from cutting old-growth trees. (Could it be because they are pretty much all cut down?). The official story is that the cutting of old-growth trees is too controversial (Not controversial enough to prevent it from happening, however.)
6. People from a wide variety of interest groups turned out on Saturday in Portland to protest the WTO. (Here's my idea: There are a few wealthy people who are deeply distressed with tax cuts and how they are going to destroy lives and infrastructure and the environment and much, much more. Someone should approach possible funders who are willing take out full-page ads in the Oregonian alerting people who read the Oregonian to demonstrations of the sort held on Saturday. There are thousands and thousands of people who are affected and who feel powerless. They feel excluded from the groups who march in the streets. It works this way in other cities and it can work here.)
7. Earth's magnetic pole is drifting from North America at such a rate that it could end up in Siberia in the next 50 years. Pole reversals are uncommon - to the tune of several hundred thousand years. The last time this happened was about 780 thousand years ago.
8. FSRN: Lawyers and workers have announced a lawsuit charging electronics giant Best Buy of race and gender discrimination.
9. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said yesterday that he is prepared to strip Democrats of the ability to filibuster it they try to stall Samuel Alito's Supreme Court appointment. (It would indeed be a stunner if the Democrats showed any backbone at all. What's Frist so worried about anyway?)
10. Maine's governor John Baldaccis is the third Guv. To travel to Cuba this year on a trade mission. US farm groups strongly support trade with Cuba as do many national and state-level politicians are pushing for loosening sanctions.
11. Governor Schwarzenegger is still wrestling his conscience on the decision to spare the life of Stanley Tookie Williams. (The tragedy here is a truly noble life is being juggled by political jesters all trying to upstage one another.)
12. The biggest industrial fire in peacetime Europe is raging at an oil terminal near London. The environmental damage is going to be catastrophic. Not just atmospheric but groundwater, rivers, streams and anything that lives in or near them will be adversely effected.
13. A prominent anti-Syrian journalist and lawmaker was killed by a car bomb today. Gibran Tueni had just returned to Lebanon from self-imposed exile in France. The group claiming responsibility is previously unknown and goes by the slightly wacky name, 'The Strugglers for the Unity and Freedom in al-Sham'. Coincidentally, UN investigator Detlev Mehlis is due to give his report on the Hariri assassination today. If the US doesn't like what Mehlis has to say, it means sanctions. (And you know what US sanctions mean, don't know you?)
14. Socialist, single parent, medic and former defense minister Michelle Bachelet is ahead in the presidential elections but she didn't have enough votes to avoid a run-off. Bolivia also is leaning toward a populist leader. O that makes 4 now in South America... .
15. More than a year before Bush declared in his 2003 State of the Union speech that Iraq had tried to buy nuclear weapons material in Africa, the French spy service began repeatedly warning the CIA in secret communications (what else? It's a spy service) that there was no evidence to support the allegation.

The EU secretly allowed the US to use transit facilities on European soil to transport "criminals" back in 2003. The revelation contradicts repeated EU denials that it knew of "rendition" flights by the CIA.
17. In Australia, angry crowds of thugs singled out and bashed people of Middle Eastern appearance at one of Australia's famed beaches as racial tensions boiled over into mob violence. It says here that "police used batons and peppers spray to rescue victims." How exactly do you "rescue" someone by using batons and pepper spray.
18. This weekend comedian Richard Pryor died. He was 65.
19. And also Eugene McCarthy. Sad.
