Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.

Anthrax? Sheep and Cattle get it, and this guy isn't...The office of an Arizona congressman who voted against the state's unconstitutional "immigration bill" has received an envelope of toxic white powder... No word on the toxin yet but it's common knowledge that the nutcase right has a penchant for Anthrax and a number of these cretins, some in business suits with lab connections, have been picked up and/or investigated over the last decade or so for possession and transport of it and other biotoxins.
...a right-wing agricultural-chemical entrepreneur from Nebraska, currently sells copies of a germ-warfare cookbook he authored that experts say is accurate enough to be dangerous." More on the topic of toxins
President Obama is in the San Francisco Bay area today, and Nevada tomorrow stumping for Democratic candidates Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid.

The Mayor of Moscow, Yury Luzhkov, has been fired after 16 years in office (receiving a three million ruble ($100,000) severance package in the process) and replaced by a confidante of Vladimir Putin, with the firing done by president Medvedev. Whys and Wherefores @ RIA/NOVOSTI

There is a Cholera outbreak in the tarp-covered and squalid U.N./Haitian government run refugee camps set up in the wake of the earthquake that occured January this year. 1,000 people or more have been exposed and 135 are dead.

The situation in Haiti going to become critical this winter.

From Monday's synopsis:
Finally... Haiti... remember Haiti? Had a BIG earthquake just a while back and the international community sprang into action?

Haiti's 1.3 Million Camp Dwellers Waiting in Vain
Friday 15 October 2010
by: Correspondents | Inter Press Service | Report


Grand Goave - Rosie Benjamin is just one of over 1.3 million people living in Haiti's 1,354 squalid refugee camps. She and 1,200 others are jammed into 300 tents and plastic tarp-shacks on a soccer field in Grand GoĆ¢ve.

Like about 70 percent of Haiti's refugee camps, the residents here are on their own. Apart from water deliveries, they get nothing from the government and the massive humanitarian apparatus on the ground. No food. No jobs. And no news about their future.

"We went to City Hall, we didn't learn anything. We went to Terre des Hommes, nothing," Benjamin said. "So far we haven't gotten anything. Nothing. We are sitting here and we have no idea what anyone is thinking."

Benjamin and her neighbours live on money from relatives overseas, share what food they have, and every now and then a non-governmental organisation (NGO) drops off some bulgar wheat and vegetable oil, but that's about it. Some of the children – many of whom will likely not go to school this year – even have orange-tinted hair.

Asked about that obvious sign of malnutrition and other conditions, Deborah Hyde, a member of the U.N. "Shelter Cluster" – a U.N.-mandated management team tasked with trying to coordinate the NGOs working on the shelter issue – said...

Did anyone notice? There was a 6.0 earthquake yesterday offshore of Sinaloa Mexico.

The French Pension Protests continue with major street actions in Paris, Marseille, and Lyon. Transportation throughout the country is almost completely shut down. The unions say there will be a break in the STREET (emphasis added)action until next Thursday.


Finally, questions to dwell on over the week end:

Why DID we go to war in Afghanistan, apparently for a pipeline? (a pipeline that already had a consumer for the Natural Gas transiting it when completed... China.)

Why IS all that Natural Gas on the back side of Central Asia so darn important?

Why SHOULD Americans give a flying about Georgia, ex-CIS Vs South Ossetia (which recently had Russian and US troops stationed and battle ready within just yards of each other) or the Caspian basin?

Why are the US and Britain, Russia, Iran, AND Israel vying for geopolitical influence in Azerbaijan?

Azerbaijan?

COAL POWER DOWNSIZING
Is coal power headed for a downsizing in US?
"Coal power, with about 340,000 megawatts of generating capacity, today produces about half of US electricity. After expected (ed. Now federally required) emissions upgrades, the coal fleet will continue to have plants, producing about 103,000 megawatts, that are still "lacking any major emission controls," the study says. The oldest, smallest coal plants with few emissions controls make up an "at-risk" (of closure) portion that account for about 20 percent of total US coal-fired generating capacity, or 69,000 megawatts."
Utilities may close up to 1 in 5 coal-fired power plants after tougher EPA air pollution rules go into effect next year, Wall Street investment banker Credit Suisse recently reported. Coal power is losing its price edge to natural gas, too. In Full @ Christian Science Monitor
