MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

"A Garden Carried in the Pocket" -- an Arabian Proverb 

I've spent a great deal of time thinking about Churchill while working on my book "Troublesome Young Men," a history of the small group of Conservative members of Parliament who defied British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's policy of appeasing Adolf Hitler, forced Chamberlain to resign in May 1940 and helped make Churchill his successor. I thought my audience would be largely limited to World War II buffs, so I was pleasantly surprised to hear that the president has been reading my book. -- Lynne Olson

With Great Britain under extreme alert after three car bomb attempts over the past two days, George W. Bush and his high level White House cohorts are doing their utmost to goad the terrorists to try harder next time. To be more "PROFESSIONAL" in their planning. To detonate bombs that are certain to cause harm.

Major national decisions now can no longer be
Decided in ways based on race
So Clarence Thomas had to step down and let
A qualified jurist take his place.

WORLD MEDIA WATCH

BuzzFlash Note: After a short break, World Media Watch will resume July 13.

In the aftermath of the recent Supreme Court ruling gutting affirmative action to deal with the historical impact of racial discrimination, I propose that Democratic political figures push for new laws promoting affirmative action on behalf of poor Americans of all races. Unequal educational opportunities are an important factor contributing to pockets of entrenched poverty.

R. J. Nave: Consigliere, Consigliere

A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
by R.J. Nave

In a recent Senate hearing, I was listening, wondering, fearing,
That our sad attorney general really wasn't on the ball.
Watching C-SPAN I was witness, to this fascinating litmus
Test to gage Alberto's fitness, fitness to uphold the law.
To uphold his oath of office as the guardian of the law
Would he stand or would he fall?
