eBay item - Constitution, The United States of America
Topic: Society 5:59 pm EDT, Jun  3, 2003

Written in 1787, ratified in 1788, and in operation from 1789 to September 11, 2001. ...

Unfortunately, its creators were unable to forsee the events of September 11, 2001, and this crowning achievement of the Enlightenment was placed in an undeclared, de facto state of suspension - where it has remained to this day.

In order to raise enough revenue to pay for recent tax cuts, we are offering this limited-edition, one-of-a-kind historical document to the highest bidder. We hope the new owners will take the instructions and wisdom of the Constitution's creators seriously and carefully.

German Professors Declare War on English Terms
Topic: Society 10:59 pm EDT, Apr  9, 2003

A group of German university professors, angered by the U.S.-British war against Iraq (news - web sites), have launched a campaign to replace many popular English-language words used in Germany with French terms.

Saying they are appalled by the way the United States and Britain defied the will of the United Nations (news - web sites) and attacked Iraq, the four professors declared war on borrowed English terms in German such as "okay," "T-shirt" and "party."
"We aren't trying to purify the language, we're trying send a political signal to show we're against this war which has no legal foundation," said Burkhardt, who is chairman of the group "Language in Politics" (

Is Bush A 'Dry Drunk'? / VIEW FROM THE LEFT
Topic: Society 3:59 pm EST, Mar 21, 2003

] What if we elected a crazy man as president? Or what if
] we elected a sane president who then went crazy? How
] would we handle it?
] I am not now suggesting that President George W. Bush is
] even a little bit crazy. I do believe his judgment is
] flawed, but that's a matter of opinion. I could be wrong.
] It could be that my judgment, not his, is flawed.
] The 25th Amendment, passed and ratified in the mid-1960s,
] attempts to deal with the problem of a disabled
] president. In the case of physical disabilities, there
] seems to be not much of a problem. But how about mental
] disabilities?

Not that I agree with any of this article but it is good to read alternate thoughts.

Sovereign authority - By Michael Kinsley -
Topic: Society 11:02 pm EST, Mar 20, 2003

Until this week, the president?s personal authority to use America?s military might was subject to two opposite historical trends. On the one hand, there is the biggest scandal in constitutional law: the gradual disappearance of the congressional Declaration of War.
In terms of the power he now claims, without significant challenge, George W. Bush is now the closest thing in a long time to dictator of the world.

'Welcome to North Korea': A Surreal, Sad Game of Charades

] Early in the documentary "Welcome to North Korea," which

] in Pyongyang to film a policewoman directing traffic.
] She's in constant motion, gesturing to vehicles coming

] to vehicles coming from another direction.
] It all looks perfectly normal, except for one thing:
] There's no traffic. North Korea doesn't have very many
] cars, and none of them happens to be driving by. The
] policewoman's choreography is all a surreal charade.

Can a Dog Be Racist? - The case of the prejudiced pit bull.
Topic: Society 12:51 pm EST, Feb 27, 2003

] To be an American is to receive a continuing education on
] race. But one does not, perhaps, expect to receive
] lessons from a dog. Then along came Percy, a young pit
] bull friends of mine found in Brooklyn's Fort Greene park
] last summer. The couple had little dog experience between
] them, but Percy appeared at that point in a relationship
] when increasingly large gestures of commitment are
] required (the engagement would come five months later),
] and he was taken in on a probationary basis. He proved to
] be sweet-tempered, if excitable, goofy and energetic,
] easily house-trained. In balance, a lot of fun. There's
] just one problem: Percy is a racist.
