CIA Tell All Book
The drums have begun
sounding for the long-awaited book by former CIA director George Tenet, in which
he gives his take on pre-9/11 days and on Saddam's huge cache of weapons of mass
And the drums are saying that Tenet is not going to get too many Christmas cards from Vice President Cheney's office [or] Paul Wolfowitz-- a guy who's already going through a rough patch -- and former defense undersecretary Douglas Feith, might also get some heartburn...Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who was President Bush's key adviser in engineering the Iraq invasion, doesn't come out so fine. Not fine at all.
"Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter has filed papers to run for president, but in his official filing, he misspelled the word 'president.' Political experts say it's all part of Hunter's plan to attract Bush supporters." --Conan O'Brien
Scooter Libby Update
In the nearly
six weeks since his close friend and former chief of staff was convicted of
lying and obstructing an investigation, Vice President Dick Cheney has not once
spoken to I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby. Why?
"Well, there hasn't been occasion to do so," Cheney said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS'"Face the Nation."

Study: Soft tissue in T.rex resembles that of hen Scripps News, DC
If symmetry is a sign of splendor, then the newly discovered Red Square nebula is one of the most beautiful objects in the universe.
The Red Square ranks among the most symmetrical objects ever observed by scientists. 'If you fold things across the principle diagonal axis, you get an almost perfect reflection symmetry,' said study leader Peter Tuthill from the University of Sydney in Australia. 'This makes the Red Square nebula the most symmetrical object of comparable complexity ever imaged.'
Tuthill and James Lloyd spotted the Red Square using the 200-inch Hale Telescope at Caltech's Palomar Observatory and the Keck-2 Telescope in Hawaii.
