Ferrari, Tyromaniac and Mars


Thanks to one of my favorite blogs (had to be written by a physicist) David Harris’ Science News, I learn that Ferrari red paint may fly into space aboard the Mars Express. I am sure my brother the Tyromaniac, a Formula I and Ferrari fanatic, would have beaten me to post it in his blog, but he is not only on vacation, but his server appears to be down. So he will see it here first!!

Can you believe this, Gadaffi to Head human rights watchdog?


Are world leaders stupid or what? You want to work with him, appoint him to head a watchdog group on anything, but not on human rights. Here is a guy who has supported terrorism and opressed his country for decades. What the hell is he going to watch? As we say in Spanish, its like appointing the fox to watch over the hens……

Police State or Democracy?


Imagine this:


The Mayor of City X notices a car following him for a few days. He sets up a raid with his own city police and they surround the car and arrest the people inside the car, noticing that there is some taping equipment within the car. The guys inside the car identify themselves as intelligence police. The Mayor calls the Attorney General to send someone to witness what is happening. While they wait, heavily armed members of the intelligence police show up to try to “liberate” the other agents. The Mayor insists they wait until the representative from the Attorney General’s office shows up. They refuse. Weapons are drawn. The Mayor and some cops stand on the way of the car so that it is not taken away. They back up the car over the sidewalk, running over three cops including the Director of the City Police. All of the agents of the intelligence police go away as cops, TV cameraman and others try to follow them. The Mayor accuses the people in the car of taping his conversations as he represents an opposition party.


 


Hitler 1940? Argentina 1976? Pinochet 1985? Fidel the last 40 years? No, Venezuela August 21 2002. This is the “democratic” Government the world asked be returned to power in April after the President resigned after his police massacred a peaceful demonstration.
