BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

No longer a ‘hero,’ John McCain has become a pathetic pandering politician, seeking to ingratiate himself with a bunch of people who don’t like him to begin with! Forgoing his integrity, he collaborated with George Bush and instead of special treatment, he’s finding that no one really likes a weasel!

Dr. J.'s Commentary: SS Guards at Play

Recently, a fascinating photo album was donated to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. It was found by a U.S. counterintelligence officer in an abandoned apartment in Frankfurt, Germany after the end of World War II in 1945. (This meant that whoever assembled the book took it with them as they fled the camp before it was liberated by the Red Army in February 1945.) He kept it hidden away all of these years. It was sent to the Museum in December 2006. It is essentially a scrap book of photos of SS male and female officers and ranks at play outside Auschwitz in 1944. (Here is a short slide show with narrative.)

Thought out rant

More like McCant.

Chicago, IL -- David Warwak looks like Eric Schlosser the author of Fast Food Nation. He sounds like Eric Schlosser. Unfortunately, instead of a best seller, Warwak's efforts to wake young people up to the politics of eating have earned him a pink slip at the Chicago area middle school where he has taught art for almost 8 years.

OK, as a life-long "hippie at heart" who has long advocated that peace and love are much better as a life philosophy than war and hate, even I comprehend that there comes a time when I can no longer continue being diplomatic. Eventually, one has to come to the realization that when you are dealing with an elephant's ass, you have to admit and resort to treating the elephant's ass exactly the same way it is treating you.
