sending out a song for mr. lott tonight ... jerry reed, 'when you're hot, you're hot.'
+ too much jazz going on [sinatra? pass? goodman?]. i'll leave it at this for now.
+ femail.co.uk: could your makeup be making you sick? nothing like the smell of formaldehyde in the morning.
+ "seeing ear theatre."
+ times of india: nixon tried to bluff soviets with nuke ploy. i guess conventionals must get boring after a while; gotta scramble them nukes, make life a little more interesting. or death. it's probably a very good thing soviet russia never noticed; but then, the soviet's military capabilities were consistently overestimated.
+ times of india: pope attacks christmas consumerism.
+ times of india: french halt ivory coast rebel advance.
+ times of india: russia rules out joining operations against iraq.
+ ny times: lott says he fell in a trap. "what we got here, is a failure to communicate ..." more like his republican party, through inaction, let him hang himself.
+ ny times: u.s. warns north korea over dismantling of u.n. devices. "if they lift the seals on these canisters (at the plant), they're going to be able to build four to five additional nuclear weapons within months if they begin that reprocessing operation - that's within a year." [ related ]
+ reuters: project to free 'paddington' bears in peru.
+ globe and mail: the g.o.p. boys, the 'southern strategy,' and the issue of race. thanks, j.j.
+ just a friendly reminder ... including today, you have *three* shopping days until christmas [including xmas day, for those extreme lateniks who take advantage of online gift certificates].
