» Oy! President Obama made his speech at the State Department yesterday on Middle East US foreign policy and the high note... He called on Israel to return to the 1967 borders. Today, he meets with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House, and Benjamin is going a little meshughanah (nuts) about it.
From Foreign Policy Magazine:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is visiting the White House today, a day after sharply criticizing a major Mideast policy address by President Barack Obama. In Thursday's speech, the president said, "We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps" of land.» The FBI Wants DNA from Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski in their investigation of his potential involvement in the Chicago Tylenol tampering incident which happened in the early 80s. This occurred as an end result of a petition by Kaczynski to keep his documents from being auctioned off by the federal government. He claims there's proof he didn't tamper with the Tylenol in coded documents the government wants to sell. "...they aren't saying whether there's any reason to believe he might be a match. Chicago FBI spokeswoman Cynthia Yates said the bureau wants DNA from "numerous individuals" including Kaczynski, although she wouldn't provide details about any of the others." More.
Netanyahu called the suggestion "indefensible" with one top Israeli official saying "There is a feeling that Washington does not understand the reality, doesn't understand what we face." Netanyahu reportedly made a furious phone call to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, just hours before the speech, objecting to the language on 1967 borders.
In today's meeting, Netanyahu is expected to demand that the U.S. veto a resolution approving Palestinian Statehood in the U.N. Security Council... [Read On]

From a friend of mine who's waiting in an-ti-ci-pation:
The Rapture should begin at 6 pm tomorrow, with the biggest earthquake ever. A couple hundred million graves will then release the good souls, but the billions of other graves are supposed to spew out the remains like a global Heimlich maneuver.
Seriously. That's his prediction. Of course, with all the different time zones on the planet, I don't know which 6 pm he means...

California Is Numero UNO! In Social Inequality...
(Do you suppose that's where the responsibility for it's economic decline originates?)
California still leads U.S., including in inequality
By Peter Henderson

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Perennial trend-setter California still represents potential aspects of the future of the United States, ranging from wealth and opportunity in Silicon Valley to abject poverty in the agricultural Central Valley.
The Golden State has always seen itself as the best, and it still is for some, but a new study of federal census and state data covering longevity, education and income shows the state is also home to arguably the worst-off parts of the nation.
Its diversity, continued attraction to immigrants, and a fast-changing economy that is still the world's eighth largest make it a harbinger for the globe as well as the nation, according to the study released this week.
"Some Californians are actually enjoying the highest levels of well-being in the world, where the rest of the world won't be for another half-century," said Kristen Lewis, one of the authors of "A Portrait of California."
But the report by the American Human Development Project, which uses United Nations-based indicators of health, wealth and education rolled into a Human Development Index score, also sheds light on less fortunate parts of the state. (here)
The Los Angeles neighborhood of Watts, which exploded in riots in 1965, only now scores at levels enjoyed by the rest of the county that year, while a companion study found the nation's worst-off congressional district to be in Fresno, California -- not the Mississippi Delta or Appalachia as researchers had expected...
