Physically Separated Bike Lanes -- Catch this 8 min. online video
http://www.groovygreen.com/groove/?p=2865

It's all about bike lanes. It shows nicely how bikes can be accommodated on heavily trafficked streets. Indeed, such facilities are commonplace throughout Europe, and are becoming more so on west coast North American cities. These cities show a commitment to cyclists' safety.

History's Verdict: Worst President Ever

Worst. President. Ever.
by Scott Horton
America’s historians, it seems, don’t think much of George W. Bush.
 
“It would be difficult to identify a President who, facing major international and domestic crises, has failed in both as clearly as President Bush,” concluded one respondent.
 
“His domestic policies,” another noted, “have had the cumulative effect of shoring up a semi-permanent aristocracy of capital that dwarfs the aristocracy of land against which the founding fathers rebelled; of encouraging a mindless retreat from science and rationalism; and of crippling the nation’s economic base.”

Momin Khawaja: Torturing Canadian Justice

Momin Khawaja: Torturing Canadian Justice
by C. L. Cook
The computer programmer arrested under Canada's newly coined "Terrorism Laws," replete with Homeland Security-like abuses of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms so hard fought for may, rumour has it, get a chance after four years of incarceration to have his legally determined day in court next June.
 
CanWest Global's Ottawa Citizen, not known for its sympathies with Muslims or the concept of fair and balanced journalism, reports Khawaja tossed into solitary confinement due to "medical" reasons coinciding with the announcement his case would finally see the light of open court (sorta maybe).

Getting Fusioned: One Small Goose-Step from the Concentration Camp

Fusion Centers to Data-Mine Suspect Citizens
by Kurt Nimmo
Call it Stasi, the American version, circa 2008. 
  • “The government is rounding up your cell phone numbers, insurance claims, credit reports, financial records, and the names of your associates and relatives and sharing them with law enforcement officials nationwide,” reports John Byrne for Raw Story.
  • “So-called ‘fusion centers’ set up after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks collect, store and analyze commercial and public data on unknown millions of Americans. Little is known about the centers, though they received $254 million from the Department of Homeland Security between 2004 and 2007.”

Iraq: The Peace Exiled

Showdown in Iraq: The Battle for Basra
by Jack Random
By general agreement, the most powerful man in Iraq is currently residing in Iran.  At various times over the course of America’s five-year occupation, he has been an invaluable ally and our most feared enemy.  His power and influence have been both exaggerated and dangerously underestimated.  

More than any other individual, including General David Petraeus and George W. Bush, this man was responsible for the decline in death and destruction during the American escalation known as “the surge.”

Free at Last: No Israeli Checkpoints in Heaven

No Checkpoints in Heaven
by Ramzy Baroud
I still vividly remember my father’s face - wrinkled, apprehensive, warm - as he last wished me farewell fourteen years ago.
 
 
He stood outside the rusty door of my family’s home in a Gaza refugee camp wearing old yellow pyjamas and a seemingly ancient robe. As I hauled my one small suitcase into a taxi that would take me to an Israeli airport an hour away, my father stood still.
 
I wished he would go back inside; it was cold and the soldiers could pop up at any moment.
 
As my car moved on, my father eventually faded into the distance, along with the graveyard, the water tower and the camp. It never occurred to me that I would never see him again.
