Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma is reportedly losing weight at an alarming rate. The military government, which has held her prisoner for many years, is denying that she is on a hunger strike.

250 people were arrested after an anti war march by the Republican convention,including Amy Goodman of Democracy Now.

And I've been watching the republican convention. Gag me with Rudyard Kipling. One of the first scenes/speeches was about Cindy McCain "saving" 2 babies of color from a Mother Theresa orphanage. The McCains adopted one girl, and their (white) friend adopted the other.
Both girls, now 17, appeared with their adoptive parent, one actually at the podium. Not a word was heard from either girl. They just grinned adoringly.
