Bits and Pieces for the Week of March 7 - 13

New colonialism in Africa. "Water, says the UN, will be the defining resource of the next 100 years." (7 of 6)

This fan knows how to enjoy halftime. (Mike)

More from Maricopa County corruption news: "...the chief justice of the Arizona Supreme Court appointed an investigator to look into allegations that [County Attorney Andrew] Thomas engaged in unethical behavior in his prosecution of county officials." This man is another Sheriff Joe's stool pigeon. "Last week, The Arizona Republic learned that Thomas was being investigated by the FBI for potential abuses of power." (7 of 6)

This is the most screwed up state in the Nation! Arizona HB2632/SB1070, the bills would: Requires law enforcement to investigate someone’s immigration status if there is reasonable suspicion they are undocumented: Requires law enforcement the authority to arrest someone if they have probable cause to believe someone is undocumented: Criminalizes transporting, harboring or shielding anyone if the person knows or disregards the fact that they are undocumented: Allows law enforcement to use a ruse to entrap a business owner into hiring undocumented immigrants and gives county attorneys subpoena power.

CA State Senator Roy Ashburn admits he's gay. "His sexual orientation is at issue because Ashburn has one of the staunchest records of voting against bills that would expand rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Californians." Slightly better than Larry Craig? (7 of 6)

7of6: Regarding Ashburn, maybe there are gays who hate other gays and hate equal rights for minorities. It's possible. Remember, he's a Republican first, gay second.
