Four words: Home-made French Onion Dip. Oh yeah.

Traversing the airwaves last night I came across a couple of good docos that summed up a lot of the recent geopolitical situation (even though they were made in 2005). One, called “Crude Impact”, summed up the effect of the recent oil/war shenanigans quite well. The other, “Energy War” (can’t find any links online…), was, at times, a mouthpiece for Thomas Friedman (who tended to say the same thing three times in each segment – a bit in love with himself too…), but there were enough other voices to make it more balanced. It added more politics and climate issues to the mix, as well as a small call to action. Pretty thought provoking.

More food for thought…

First off, a very interesting article bringing to attention the terrifying fact that because so much DU (Depleted Uranium) ammunition has been used since 1991, the amount of radiation released has totalled more than 10 times the amount released by all previous nuclear testing. It’s really scary reading – and important too.

With Kosovo likely to declare independence in the near future, powerful European nations and the USA and Russia are jostling for position. Fasten your seatbelts, it could be a bumpy ride.

There are some ideas for Christmas presents for dictators, and other twits.

Oh yeah, and “As of year-end 2006, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) reported that American jails and prisons held a record-breaking 2,258,983 men and women, and that one in 31 adults are now under some form of correctional supervision.” Not a police state at all… yet… developing...

Happy Happy Joy Joy, Lalalala Hmmm Hmmm…
