Sizzling NY Times editorial

Monday, December 31st, 2007

I honestly wonder whether an editorial board of a national paper has ever before slammed a president quite this hard.  It’s blistering.

Looking at America

There are too many moments these days when we cannot recognize our country. Sunday was one of them, as we read the account in The Times of how men in some of the most trusted posts in the nation plotted to cover up the torture of prisoners by Central Intelligence Agency interrogators by destroying videotapes of their sickening behavior. It was impossible to see the founding principles of the greatest democracy in the contempt these men and their bosses showed for the Constitution, the rule of law and human decency.

It was not the first time in recent years we’ve felt this horror, this sorrowful sense of estrangement, not nearly. This sort of lawless behavior has become standard practice since Sept. 11, 2001.

The country and much of the world was rightly and profoundly frightened by the single-minded hatred and ingenuity displayed by this new enemy. But there is no excuse for how President Bush and his advisers panicked — how they forgot that it is their responsibility to protect American lives and American ideals, that there really is no safety for Americans or their country when those ideals are sacrificed.

Read the rest — it keeps getting better.

It doesn’t make up for The Times hiring William Kristol, but it is a hell of a read.

Screw bipartisanship

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

This sort of thing drives me nuts.  According to the dependably annoying David Broder, a bipartisan group of mostly ex-office holders are planning to issue a demand that the major party presidential nominees agree to support a “government of national unity.”  Otherwise, they threaten, they’ll support a third party candidate, probably NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

(Washington Post) Bipartisan Group Eyes Independent Bid

New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, a potential independent candidate for president, has scheduled a meeting next week with a dozen leading Democrats and Republicans, who will join him in challenging the major-party contenders to spell out their plans for forming a “government of national unity” to end the gridlock in Washington.

Those who will be at the Jan. 7 session at the University of Oklahoma say that if the likely nominees of the two parties do not pledge to “go beyond tokenism” in building an administration that seeks national consensus, they will be prepared to back Bloomberg or someone else in a third-party campaign for president.

Conveners of the meeting include such prominent Democrats as former senators Sam Nunn (Ga.), Charles S. Robb (Va.) and David L. Boren (Okla.), and former presidential candidate Gary Hart. Republican organizers include Sen. Chuck Hagel (Neb.), former party chairman Bill Brock, former senator John Danforth (Mo.) and former New Jersey governor Christine Todd Whitman.

Boren, who will host the meeting at the university, where he is president, said: “It is not a gathering to urge any one person to run for president or to say there necessarily ought to be an independent option. But if we don’t see a refocusing of the campaign on a bipartisan approach, I would feel I would want to encourage an independent candidacy.”

Seriously, what planet do these people live on?  Here on earth, we have two major political parties: one that wants endless war in Iraq, opposed by another that (at least in terms of its rank and file) wants the war ended.  We have one party whose dominant wing seems to want to transform the United States into a Christian theocracy, opposed by another party that still (mostly) believes in the Separation of Church and State.  We have one party that believes that we need even more tax cuts for the wealthy and even less governmental protection for consumers and workers, opposed by another that wants to return at least a little fairness to our tax code and our economy.

David Letterman union buster buster

Friday, December 28th, 2007

Good for Letterman.

(NY Times) Letterman to Return In Deal With Striking Writers

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Late-night TV host David Letterman reached a deal on Friday with the union for striking screenwriters that will let his show return to the air next week while bringing his writing staff back with him.

The Writers Guild of America called its pact with Letterman’s production company, WorldWide Pants Inc, a sign of union readiness to negotiate a deal with major film and TV studios to settle Hollywood’s worst labor crisis in 20 years.

The WGA said its “comprehensive agreement” with WorldWide Pants included provisions to pay writers for work distributed over the Internet — presumably covering the large assortment of advertising-supported video clips of Letterman’s show that CBS posts on its Web site.

Trying to climb into other people’s heads and ascribe to them hidden motives is always dangerous, not to mention damn unfair.  For all I know, the producers fighting the Writers Guild have what they consider to be good business reasons for taking a hard line.  But that doesn’t mean I can’t have my suspicions.

Ever since Reagan fired the air traffic controllers, the corporate modus operandi in labor “relations” has been unbending and consistently confrontational: Real men don’t bargain; they break the union’s back. 

So seeing any employer, but especially one this visible, deciding to instead negotiate in good faith is something worth celebrating.

Let’s run his ratings up a little.

The daily doom: walrus edition

Friday, December 28th, 2007

To repeat myself, yet again: Does a day ever go by anymore without another terrifying revelation about global warming?

(AP) Loss of sea ice could harm walrus

Federal marine mammal experts in Alaska studying the effects of global warming on walrus, polar bears and ice seals warn there are limit to the protections they can provide.

They can restrict hunters, ship traffic and offshore petroleum activity, but that may not be enough if the animals’ basic habitat — sea ice — disappears every summer.

“Ultimately it’s beyond my scope,” said Joel Garlich-Miller, a walrus expert for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Anchorage. “I can’t make ice cubes out there.”

Garlich-Miller said 3,000 to 4,000 mostly young walrus died this year in stampedes on land on the Russian side of the Chukchi Sea, the body of water touching Alaska and Russia just north of the Bering Strait. Instead of spending the summer spread over sea ice, thousands of walruses were stranded on land in unprecedented numbers for up to three months.

This is the type of global warming story that gets to me the most.  Visions of a future apocalypse of receding coastlines and massive hunger, disease and human misery are scary enough, but this is something that is happening now right before our eyes.  In all of our mighty stupidity, we are willy nilly rewriting the genetic code of our planet and every living thing to one degree or another is being affected.
