    In what could be a way of lowering expectations for next Thursday's big economic speech, aides to President Obama are privately spreading word that he will not present his entire jobs plan in his address to a Joint Session of Congress. Aides say Thursday's speech will be part of a bigger plan the White House will roll out throughout the fall with the president hitting the road for speeches and town hall appearances. Aides have already confirmed that Obama will be traveling to California, Colorado, and Washington state for one three-day swing later this month that will include economic events...

    Anita O'Day, whose sassy renditions of "Honeysuckle Rose," "Sweet Georgia Brown" and other song standards that made her one of the most respected jazz vocalists of the 1940s and '50s, has died. She was 87. O'Day died in her sleep early Thursday morning at a convalescent hospital in Los Angeles where she was recovering from a bout with pneumonia, said her manager Robbie Cavolina. "On Tuesday night, she said to me, get me out of here," Cavolina said. "But it didn't happen." Once known as the "Jezebel of Jazz" for her reckless, drug-induced lifestyle, O'Day lived to sing and...
  • MTV 'SNOOP' POOP

    08/06/2006 7:43:56 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 13 replies · 1,201+ views
    Media watchdogs are barking over an MTV cartoon that portrays a Snoop Dogg-like character leading two women around on leashes - before scooping up their poop. The new MTV2 animated series "Where My Dogs At?" satirizes such Hollywood stars as Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. But industry pros are incensed over the portrayal of women and blacks in episode four. The half-hour episode, "Woofie Loves Snoop," debuted last month - and until it was removed yesterday, the offending clip was just a click away on MTV.com. "Seinfeld"'s Jason Alexander voices Snoopathon Esquire III, who struts out of his...

    NEW YORK - Forget religion and politics. When it comes to controversial subjects, the 50th anniversary of rock 'n' roll is the topic du jour. For many people, that milestone will occur this year on July 5, the day five decades ago when a young Southerner named Elvis Presley recorded "That's All Right (Mama)" in a Memphis studio. That city is planning a year-long celebration in honor of the event, calling Elvis's single "the first rock and roll song ever recorded, making Memphis the birthplace of a musical revolution." But even after 50 years of gyrating hips, not everyone agrees...

    False rumors of random federal immigration raids have sent panic through immigrant communities around the country this week, emptying classrooms, work sites and shopping areas and sending thousands of people into hiding. Towns in New Jersey and on Long Island have been among those most affected by the snowballing fear, say immigrant advocates and public officials, who described terrified mothers pulling their children from a Head Start program in Freehold, N.J., and deserted streets in usually bustling areas of West Hempstead, N.Y.

    On the anniversary of the attacks in New York and Washington, former US President Bill Clinton says we can only counter the threat of terrorism by reparing the widening rift between the haves and the have-nots of our planet The central reality of the twenty-first century world, as the spread of terrorism and the vulnerability of the United States to it demonstrate, is that our era is globally interdependent but far from integrated. We learned on 11 September that the very forces of globalisation we helped to create - open borders and commerce, easy travel, instant communications, instant transfers and...

    SANTA ANA, Calif., Sept 5 (Reuters) - Former President Clinton warned on Thursday that a U.S. attack on Iraq could prompt Saddam Hussein to use chemical or biological weapons against U.S. interests because he would have nothing to lose. Speaking to a group of Democratic Party supporters at a Santa Ana, California fund-raiser for Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, Clinton said President Bush had to consider Saddam's reaction to an invasion before taking action. "Saddam Hussein is not a good man by our definition," Clinton said. "There's no question ... he has significant stocks of chemical and biological agents." "I think we...

    Fundamental changes are taking place in the historical policies of the United States with regard to human rights, our role in the community of nations and the Middle East peace process -- largely without definitive debates (except, at times, within the administration). Some new approaches have understandably evolved from quick and well-advised reactions by President Bush to the tragedy of Sept. 11, but others seem to be developing from a core group of conservatives who are trying to realize long-pent-up ambitions under the cover of the proclaimed war against terrorism.
