A note before beginning. This article focuses on today's financial and economic crisis. Not affairs of state, war and peace or geopolitics. No guessing who's number one under those headings. That said...Now defrocked as the "maestro" of misery: Alan Greenspan.

Obama enthusiasts tend to get annoyed or depressed when his similarities to Bush and McCain are pointed out...But Obama is not identical to Bush and McCain, and those differences, both rhetorical and actual (such as his pro-choice stance), do matter.

He may be a pliant partner for the west, but with his record of corruption, Zardari is the worst possible choice for Pakistan...Today, he is the second richest person in the country, with estates and bank accounts littered on many continents, including a mansion in Surrey [a high income suburb of London, England] worth several million...Zardari...is perfectly suited to being a total creature of Washington.

...[T]he Governor of Alaska...actually poked fun at, indeed mocked, the constitutional rights of the criminally accused in our system, to the thunderous applause of Republican brothers and sisters wearing symbolic hard-hats emblazoned with the slogan "Drill now," and holding signs claiming "country first," like gluttons to fast-food neo-conservativism.
How is it possible that with so much discussion around climate change we continue to have carbon dioxide spewing celebrations endorsed by our local, provincial and federal governments? The time has come to reconsider having the Snowbirds fly at Canadian airshows and other community celebrations.
