Today, I stumbled across three little pieces of information I just had to share:

1) Strangest Spam of the Day!

Subject: Need Reliable Vendor p ehh

We need a vendor who can offer immediate supply. I'm offering $5,000. US dollars just for referring a vender which is (Actually RELIABLE in providing the below equipment) Contact details of vendor required, including name and phone #. If they turn out to be reliable in supplying the below equipment I'll immediately pay you $5,000. We prefer to work with vendor in the Boston/New York area.

2) The Mayor of London speaks for Many!

London Mayor Ken Livingstone has launched an astonishing attack on US President George W Bush, calling him "corrupt".

He said he would get as much pleasure from Mr Bush being forced out of office as he had done from the downfall of former Iraq leader Saddam Hussein.

3) More Crap in Iraq....

From Lisa Rein's Radar, I discovered this piece of news not mentioned in mainstream news:

US Troops Open Fire On Iraqi Protesters
Two Killed In New Iraq Demo Shooting
By Chris Hughes In Al-Fallujah with Pictures by Julian Andrews for The Mirror.

I watched in horror as American troops opened fire on a crowd of 1,000 unarmed people here yesterday.

Many, including children, were cut down by a 20-second burst of automatic gunfire during a demonstration against the killing of 13 protesters at the Al-Kaahd school on Monday...

To read the rest of this story, go to...

Also at Lisa's site is some information about a big peace event in San Francisco this weekend.
