What the hell did RIP Ford get himself into?
Regretting an adventure well before one has even arrived at a destination is not generally a very good sign. But here I was, fifty miles still left before I was to reach Del Rio west of San Antonio and the sun was starting to make its presence known. The delayed hangover from the night before had finally kicked in, I was hungry and the coffee was not making any headway in clearing the cobwebs in my head. This was going to be fun day.

Houseguests
Some people love having houseguests, my mom is one of them, she loves having people over. Me, it depends on the people. I like houseguests who are independent and easygoing and who don't expect me to entertain them. What I usually get though is people who can't drive, who are unhappy with everything and who expect me to take them to Disneyland. Which I refuse to do.

Aktionskunst - Remembering the Past
Wolfram Kastner is an artist in Munich who's been branded a professional troublemaker for his unconventional methods of activism and performance art. Last fall, he installed 17 yellow suitcases outside a building to remember the 17 deported Jews who had lived there, with the name of each deportee written on each suitcase. He says he won’t remove the suitcases until the building, which is now a library, places a plaque in remembrance of the Jews who were deported to camps. I know of many buildings in my hometown that could use Mr Kastner's art and I want to thank him for remembering and for making other people remember too.

Zimbabwe's War on the Poor
The damage Mugabe has inflicted on Zimbabwe will affect the country for decades to come. Hundreds of thousands of people have been left homeless and starving in his attempt to control the vote. In a national campaign to drive the opposition away, he has ordered the tearing down of every "illegal" street stall and shack, not just in the cities but in every remote corner of Zimbabwe. The U.N. said it'll send a special envoy to investigate the crackdown. How about they send in a small army to arrest Mugabe instead? Yeah, I know, dream on.

'The absence of freedom and the absence of liberty'
Condi Rice delivered what was described as "some of the toughest talk in the Arab world from a secretary of state" during her tour to Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Good for her. The Saudis described her comments as "meaningless", no big surprise there. I wonder how the princes felt having to listen to a black woman criticising them about women's rights and dissidents' arrests. Oh, the humiliation! Heh :-)

P.S. I read in some op-ed yesterday that Condi should have driven her own car in Saudi Arabia as a sign of support for women's rights and so on. As much as I support women's rights, I thought that was a silly and demeaning suggestion, the Secretary of State driving her own car.

Tracing the story of a lie
The Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington is hosting an exhibition on anti-Semitism and the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion". Has any other forgery ever done so much damage to a people?

Emperor Hugo
Peter Huessy surveys the worrisome developments in Chavez's Venezuela and the steps he's taking to amplify his megalomaniacal pretensions, and sounds a warning call. When indeed will this menacing dangerous lunatic be swatted?

Chavez wants to rule an oil-rich empire consisting of Venezuela, Ecuador, Colombia and Panama, and destabilize everywhere else. He's been providing finance to destabilizing democracies in Ecuador and Bolivia. He's got friendly relations with North Korea and Iran, and boasts about Iran's help for his nuclear program. He's squandering his nation's oil wealth on weapons to destabilize the region. Chavez has big plans for America. We should have big plans for him, too.

30 years later, America won the Vietnam War
They're trading with us, they're doing military training with us, and they're sharing intelligence with us. We're trying to make them another bulwark against China's rise in our Pacific alliance system. Vietnam's Communist government has been liberalising and letting its people grow rich to a remarkable degree. So much for that.

Vietnam's Prime Minister will be meeting Bush and Rumsfeld, a few days after Germany's Defence Minister axed his trip to Washington over Rumsfeld and the White House snubbing him. Actually, even Kofi Annan couldn't make time in his schedule to meet the German. How humiliating! Old Europe continues to lose relevance in this brave new world, as the Bush administration builds new alliances left and right.

US rolls out red carpet for old foe Vietnam
America welcomed a Vietnamese communist leader for the first time yesterday at the start of a visit to seal an unparalleled series of military and intelligence deals between the former enemies.




Prime minister Phan Van Khai, once an official in the administration of the Vietnamese revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh, will get the red carpet treatment throughout his visit.

Arriving at the head of a 200-strong delegation, the 72-year-old Vietnamese leader will sign a series of deals underlining the extraordinary turnaround in relations.

Vietnam will agree to despatch officers for training in the United States, to swap intelligence information and to exchange intelligence officers at the embassies in Hanoi and Washington to liaise on common threats.

The agreement is all the more notable coming on the 30th anniversary of North Vietnam's defeat of America and its South Vietnamese allies. The war cost America 58,000 lives and Vietnam more than a million.

But the administration of President George W Bush is increasingly concerned about the threat from an increasingly powerful China, one of Vietnam's oldest adversaries.

Tomorrow the Vietnamese leader will meet Mr Bush in the White House and will later see Donald Rumsfeld, the defence secretary.
