Journalists Are Leaving Iraq
The number of foreign
journalists in Baghdad is declining sharply, a media withdrawal that reflects
Iraq's growing stability and the financial strains faced by some news
In a stark indication of the changing media focus here, the number of journalists traveling with American forces in Iraq has plummeted in the past year. U.S. military officials say they "embedded" journalists 219 times in September 2007. Last month, the number shrank to 39.
question [Sarah Palin] keeps asking at all of the rallies is, 'Who is Barack
Obama?' You know what, genius, maybe if you'd picked up a newspaper in the last
year you'd know. He's the guy who's kicking your ass." --Bill Maher

Film Delayed Till After the Election
If Sen. John McCain has more
to say publicly about his time in a North Vietnamese prison before next month's
election, it will not be with help from Warner Brothers.
The studio moved quietly over the last few weeks to block any promotional showing of an interview — tied to the release of the first DVD version of the 1987 film Hanoi Hilton — in which McCain spoke of his imprisonment in the Hoa Lo prison during the Vietnam War. The studio is concerned that any pre-election showing might embroil the project in electoral politics.
Vote for Obama. McCain lacks the character and temperament to be president. And Palin is simply a disgrace. - Christopher Hitchens

Subject: Manchurian candidate
I'm sure you and your readers remember the movie "The Manchurian Candidate" in which a prisoner in North Korea was brain washed into doing a dirty deed when shown a particular card. John McCain was held prisoner, tortured and probably brainwashed while in captivity.
It could have happened. Hopefully we'll never find out.
Bob in North Canton
McCain has obviously suffered from all those years of torture. He has a hair trigger temper and a nasty mouth -- not qualifications for the kind of president I want to lead this country.
Plus he and his wife's family were up to their necks with Charles Keating. The last thing this country needs is another banking crisis under a Republican president who cavorts with criminals.
