States of Mind: Those who stay, 1911. Umberto Boccioni.
For those who care, know Arabic, and enjoy grilled oranges, I shall comment on Bush’s State of the Union speech tomorrow live on Al-Jazeera TV.
High time: “Anti-torture campaign launched in Syria.”
After suddenly improving relations with Israel (to get unconditional US support), Egypt’s unelected government “Quelling Opponents of Longtime Leader: Fifth Term for Mubarak at Issue.”
In safe hands. US soldiers carefully protecting Iraqi ballot boxes.
“Evolution Takes a Back Seat in U.S. Classes”
“Friendly” and “moderate” tryants: “Egypt Jails Lawmaker Pushing Ballot Reform.”

In fairness to Americans. I have just read in an Arabic newspaper an article about Jerry Springer. To my readers in the Middle East, I have to say this. This program does NOT represent the American people among whom I have lived for 21 years. There is also evidence that many of the episodes and [...]
