Stories this week...

I believe that Bush and co. will get off scott free and won't get in trouble for anything. I agree with the quote in the story "Beginning of the End? Watergate 2005? Gotterdammerung for the Bushies?":

Despite all the enormous hopes vested in the Plame affair, that it is playing the same role in the downfall of the Bush administration as did the "third-rate rate burglary" that kicked off Watergate, this could be the end of the story, even if Fitzgerald has said there might have to be further investigation of Karl Rove, identified in the Indictments as Official A.

The Emerging Euro-denominated International Oil Marker

In 2005-2006, The Tehran government has a developed a plan to begin competing with New York's NYMEX and London's IPE with respect to international oil trades - using a euro-denominated international oil-trading mechanism. This means that without some form of US intervention, the euro is going to establish a firm foothold in the international oil trade. Given U.S. debt levels and the stated neoconservative project for U.S. global domination, Tehran's objective constitutes an obvious encroachment on U.S. dollar supremacy in the international oil market. A good follow up to this is the article from the Information Clearing House, appropriately entitled "All over the globe, our leaders seem to be suffering from a severe bout of infantilism"

Being that I am in DC, I will have no excuse for paying my respects to her. According to the Detroit Free Press:

The body of civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks will lie in repose at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington as part of the series of events that will allow the public to pay tribute to her.

The public will be able to pay their respects in the memorial's rotunda Sunday from 6 p.m. to midnight, Karen Dumas, a spokeswoman for the Rosa & Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development, said Wednesday night.
