In The News:
Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.
Christchurch New Zealand has experienced a 6.3 magnitude aftershock to the 7.1 Richter scale earthquake that occurred last September 4th, and all the variables that make the difference between a "killer quake" or not fell to the "killer' side. Nearby, shallow and sharp, during the busiest part of the day downtown where many buildings are of brick construction. There have been at least 70 deaths. More.
Libya comes apart and the chances of the nation's leader Muammar al-Gaddafi staying in power are pretty slim. The U.S. is getting their citizens out of the country and the Italians have sent evacuation ships. Over the weekend the Libyan Imams, the country's religious leaders, stated there will be NO killing of protesting non-combatants, women, children, or the elderly as required by any rational interpretation of the Koran. But the attacks on civilians did not stop.... leading to a Fatwa against the Libyan regime... Jihad. The tribes that comprise most of the Libyan population are on the move from the their desert homes towards the cities and military units in Benghazi have turned on the regime and liberated the city, now being bombarded by the Libyan air force. Two Libyan officers refused their orders and took their plane to Malta and probable political asylum. Expect civil war. More in the commentary.
What follows is relayed from an English speaking Libyan with relatives in country.

Yemen's government is not doing well either as the regime there refuses to give ground to protester demands with an Arab League summit looming.
The House passed a $1.3 trillion dollar continuing budget resolution that will operate the US government through the end of September. That number is $62.1 billion dollars less than necessary, even after draconian cuts to WIC (Women Infanta and Children) food subsidy program, Planned Parenthood funding and much more. The Senate must vote on it by March 4th. More.
The union led siege in Madison Wisconsin continues over an artificially created budget deficit (by the Republican governor giving tax breaks and other benefits to corporate and other business interests causing a massive immediate shortfall in projected revenues) which was then followed by a bill with major cuts of state employee benefits and the attempt to eliminate collective bargaining. There are tens of thousands of people in the capital demanding a redacting of those provisions and the governor has threatened the use of national guard troops even as the leader of the police union, whose benefits will NOT be affected, says that the state police would be more than willing to use force to break up the protests. More.
In case you think this is just a provincial 'tempest in a teapot', Someone in Egypt Ordered a Pizza for the Protesters in Wisconsin. Inshallah A'Salaam.
Details are still sketchy but it seems four Americans on a yacht off the coast of Oman were hijacked by "Pirates" and when U.S. naval units tried to negotiate with the hijackers, apparently as a ruse for a rescue raid, all four people were killed along with an unknown number of the captors.
In OTHER News:
American who sparked diplomatic crisis over Lahore shooting was CIA spy
• Raymond Davis employed by CIA 'beyond shadow of doubt'
• Former soldier charged with murder over deaths of two men
• Davis accused of shooting one man twice in the back as he fled

The American who shot dead two men in Lahore, triggering a diplomatic crisis between Pakistan and the US, is a CIA agent who was on assignment at the time.
Raymond Davis has been the subject of widespread speculation since he opened fire with a semi-automatic Glock pistol on the two men who had pulled up in front of his car at a red light on 25 January.
Pakistani authorities charged him with murder, but the Obama administration has insisted he is an "administrative and technical official" attached to its Lahore consulate and has diplomatic immunity.
Based on interviews in the US and Pakistan, the Guardian can confirm that the 36-year-old former special forces soldier is employed by the CIA. "It's beyond a shadow of a doubt," said a senior Pakistani intelligence official. The revelation may complicate American efforts to free Davis, who insists he was acting in self-defence against a pair of suspected robbers, who were both carrying guns.
Pakistani prosecutors accuse the spy of excessive force, saying he fired 10 shots and got out of his car to shoot one man twice in the back as he fled. The man's body was found 30 feet from his motorbike.
"It went way beyond what we define as self-defence. It was not commensurate with the threat," a senior police official involved in the case told the Guardian.
A third man was crushed by an American vehicle as it rushed to Davis's aid. Pakistani officials believe its occupants were CIA because they came from the house where Davis lived and were armed.
The US refused Pakistani demands to interrogate the two men and on Sunday a senior Pakistani intelligence official said they had left the country. "They have flown the coop, they are already in America," he said.
ABC News reported that the men had the same diplomatic visas as Davis. It is not unusual for US intelligence officers, like their counterparts round the world, to carry diplomatic passports.
