Bush Gets Punked at the Sunshine

"They saw this nut (G.W.B.) on TV and said, ’Whoa, this is like letting a 4-year-old drive a car.'"

You may not want to believe it, but George W. Bush has some strengths. As he told us four years ago, he is a uniter, not a divider. The truth of that statement was more than apparent last Friday, when over 700 punk rockers converged on the Sunshine Theater for the fist-pumping, crowd surfing and political networking that was the Rock Against Bush tour.

Power to the Pajama People!

How bloggers took down once-mighty CBS and are changing the news business forever

In the midst of Rathergate, and prior to CBS's reluctant admission they were pushing fabricated government memos as real, former CBS executive vice president Jonathan Klein sneered, "You couldn't have a starker contrast between the multiple layers of checks and balances [on mainstream media] and a guy sitting in his living room in his pajamas writing."

Odds & Ends

Dateline: Israel—Israel's Health and Agriculture ministries branch in Ashkelon last week seized 80,000 cans of dog food that had been disguised as foie gras for humans. The product, imported from Bulgaria, was originally labeled “chicken for dogs,” but was covered by two different fraudulent labels: “Domestic birds' liver pâté. Producer: S.E. Grenot, France” and “Pâté fois gras. Producer: Lovmit General Toshevo.” Although it is believed the products never reached store shelves, the Health Ministry warned consumers not to purchase products with those names. “The health risks from such a product are considerable,” Shirley Deri, a food engineer for the district of Ashkelon, told the Haaretz International daily. “It could contain microbiological pathogens that are lethal to humans.” The Agriculture Ministry is conducting an investigation.

Letters

Correction: In the “Newscity” article "Condemnation Denied" appearing Sept. 16-22, the Alibi wrongly stated that Bernalillo County issued a building permit for a house on D. McCall's Bosque property. The county approved a waste water permit and that's what was rescinded. The building permit was never approved.
