Do I have that right?
- In which an 83-year-old nun and two others are convicted of crime of violence under terrorism statute [search terrorism]
- their weapons are white roses, Bibles and crime scene tape [search white rose]
- and the jury is not allowed to hear a former Attorney General testify in their defense about Nuremberg and Antiproliferation Treaty legal obligations [search Ramsey Clark]
And they were only trying to save us all. Read below the fold...

Ralph Nader believes it is time to put U.S. global corporations on the DEFENSIVE! He declares that would be “the first step for the resurgence of the people so that corporations become our servants and do not remain our masters.”
In “Patriotic Yardsticks for Unpatriotic Giant Corporations” he calls out US Global Corporations for BETRAYING America -- betraying the American citizen taxpayers that have enabled them to become so incredibly successful. Nader spells it out: Read below the fold...

We've had three big stories this week, each showing how the right plays the scandal game better than the left. Of the three, one is a non-scandal (Benghazi), one is a minor scandal with the potential to turn into more (IRS),1 and one is an honest-to-God scandal right now (AP). Republicans don't bother with such fine distinctions though, and that's why they are better at playing it than Democrats: when they get something they can run with, they do. Read below the fold...

No image! Still on the borage, or squash, or whatever the heck they are, I was happy to see some sudden little pale green tendrils in the same general area from, I hope, some self-seeded plants from the wildflower mix l planted last year, and very successfully, too. Actually, let me add a picture, since that will show how this bed should be in a month or two, if what was growing there last year comes back:

From (I love the source) Art in America:
Cooper Occupation Exceeds One-Week Mark
In the latest development in an ongoing conflict, students at New York's Cooper Union have occupied the office of school president Jamshed Bharucha for a full week. They have vowed to continue their protest until Bharucha steps down. "It's very evident that he does not believe in the mission of the school," second-year art student Angus Buchanan-Smith told A.i.A. during a visit this week to the East Village college.
So they have a demand. Read below the fold...

Citizen's Council for Health Freedom, reader-funded attendance at an ObamaCare conference in DC
"States haven't made a lot of progress yet in connecting to the data hub; systems don't 'talk' to each other. Hope that systems will be in place perhaps by 2015." -- Susan Dentzer, RWJF
"Will they be ready? No one knows the answer to that. There's a political and a technical consideration...If a state chooses not to cooperate, then it's very difficult for the feds to put up a very successful, exchange in a state." -- Brett Graham, Leavitt Partners.
"It's a three year implementation being done in 10 months. By its nature, it's unrealistic." -- Keven Counihan, Access Health CT
"The truth is, it's not going to be fully functioning on 10-1" -- Christine Ferguson, RI (Exchange)
"And October 1 is very very soon." -- Cynthia Crose, Arkansas Insurance Dept.
"I don't know what happens this fall if it's not ready. -- Sandy Praeger, NAIC
Oh, I know what happens: Obama makes a massive public relations push, says "it's ready," the career "progressives" chime in, and our famously free press rolls over (and what do any of them care, becaue they're already covered! Read below the fold...

One of Obama’s damage control frontiers this week is the “cover up” after the tragic and deadly attack on the Benghazi consulate last September.
It is being roundly pooh-poohed as not scandal-label-worthy by Obama Team Dems. The one MSNBC anchor I am willing to watch, Chris Hayes, tonight led the pooh-poohers much to my frustration. He called it a “nothingburger”! Read below the fold...
