It's anger, disappointment and, somehow, desire—our women's football team folds and another, the Menace, forms from the debris

Operation Stonegarden is a Disaster

Recent events in southern New Mexico connected to the Bush Administration’s peculiarly-named “Operation Stonegarden” cry out for much closer analysis in the press than they have been given so far.

Odds & Ends

Dateline: Nepal--Mountaineering authorities in Kathmandu are calling for a ban on nudity and attempts to set obscene records on the world’s highest mountain. Last year, a Nepali climber claimed the world’s highest display of nudity when he disrobed for several minutes atop Mount Everest’s 29,028-foot summit. “There should be strict regulations to discourage such attempts by climbers,” Ang Tshering, president of the Nepal Mountaineering Association, said last Wednesday. Mount Everest has always attracted record-setters, including the oldest climber (71-years-old), the youngest climber (15-years-old), the first climber with one foot and the first blind climber. In 2005, a Nepali couple became the first to be married atop Everest. Authorities hope their proposed regulations will discourage nudist climbers and those attempting to join the 5 1/2-mile club--although the mountain’s subzero temperatures would seem to discourage such activities already.

Letters

[Re: Toons, “El Machete,” Sept. 20-26] Eric Garcia is right on point when he points out Bush's latest deception. Staying the course in this war is like driving in the wrong direction on the wrong road and expecting to arrive at your planned destination. Meanwhile, violence is rising in Iraq, both for our troops and for innocent Iraqis. We need to end this war and bring our troops home. When will we learn to use diplomacy instead of bombs to settle our differences? It saddens me to see another unnecessary war being fought in my name.
