    'An animal lover nicknamed 'Kangaroo Dundee' is set to star in a BBC star documentary that follows his life in the Australian Outback mothering orphaned marsupials. Chris Barnes gave up life in the city to build a shack with no running water or boiler, where he cares for the animals. The 6ft 7" Australian, nicknamed Brolga, cares for the babies 24 hours-a-day, taking them to the supermarket in nearby Alice Springs and even letting them sleep at the end of his bed. His amazing story has been documented in a two-part BBC2 series Kangaroo Dundee. The film shows Brolga -...

    BOSTON (WBZ) ― "President Obama, I'm his aunt, I'm the only person on earth allowed to pinch his ears and smack him. Not his father; not his mother; not his wife or brother - he'll fight with him. But Auntie is a much honored person in African culture."

    BOSTON (AP) - Barack Obama's Kenyan aunt lost her bid for asylum more than four years ago, and a judge ordered her deported. Instead, Zeituni Onyango stayed, living for years in public housing. Now, in a case that puts the president in a tough position both personally and politically, Onyango's request is being reconsidered under a little-used provision in U.S. immigration rules that allows denied asylum claims to be reheard if applicants can show that something has changed to make them eligible. Such as the ascension of her nephew to the presidency of the world's most powerful country.

    subtitle: sorry, auntie. Now get under the bus.From the perky Katie interview:Couric: YOU HAVE AN AUNT WHO’S BEEN LIVING IN THIS COUNTRY APPARENTLY ILLEGALLY, AND YOUR CAMPAIGN SAYS ANY AND ALL APPROPRIATE LAWS SHOULD BE FOLLOWED. SO WOULD YOU SUPPORT HER BEING DEPORTED TO KENYA? Sen. Obama: If she is violating laws those laws have to be obeyed. We’re a nation of laws. Obviously that doesn’t lessen my concern for her, I haven’t been able to be in touch with her. But I’m a strong believer you have to obey the law.

    A Boston Housing Authority official said yesterday the agency was never notified of a deportation order issued for Barack Obama’s aunt, who has been living in federal- and state-funded public housing in South Boston since 2003. BHA Deputy Director William McGonagle said Zeituni Onyango, 56, a native of Kenya, met the criteria to live in federally funded housing when she applied in 2003. The Associated Press reported yesterday that an immigration judge instructed Onyango to leave the country in 2004 after her asylum request was denied. “The deportation order, based on my understanding, based on what I’ve read in the...

    BBC 'must improve coverage of EU' The BBC must make its coverage of Europe "more demonstrably impartial", an independent inquiry has said. The report, commissioned by the BBC governors, found no evidence of deliberate bias in BBC reporting. But it said there was a "widespread perception" of "certain forms of cultural and unintentional bias" which had to be corrected. BBC News has set up a working group to examine the report in detail and to draw up its response to the findings. 'Urgent action' The governors said in a statement: "We are pleased that the panel found no evidence of...

    Ask Auntie Pinko- Corporate Income Taxation DodgeRyan- As an interesting side project, I thought I'd take a look at the Democratic Underground's "Ask Auntie Pinko" column. Auntie Pinko serves as a sort of Democratic "Dear Abby", answering questions every week from readers on issues and ideas. Invariably, very complex and interesting ideas are bludgeoned into conformity with the party line, yet sometimes Auntie Pinko presents valid arguments that should be addressed. As an exercise in critical thinking, I will publish a weekly comment on the "Ask Auntie Pinko" column here beginning this week.This week, a reader asks Auntie Pinko,...
