All the News That Fits...Israeli Prez Faces Rape Rap, Another Million Americans and More

POSTED:

  • Never before have US casualties in Iraq been so commonplace as in the past two weeks. Averaging 3.5 deaths a day, October is set to be the grimmest month since January 2005, when large scale attacks contributed to the monthly total.
  • Isreali Prez charged with rape. Attorney-General mulls over whether to indict.
  • The ever-developing Abramoff case: GOP Rep. Bob Ney pleads guilty to conspiracy, then dubiously retires to an alcohol rehabilitation clinic — this season's escape route of choice for scandalized congressmen. Top GOP showboats order his obviously inevitable resignation. Meanwhile, Ney is still collecting a six-digit federal salary: $452.60 a day.
  • Crystal-gazing Karl Rove confesses blithe prediction for'06 elections: at worse, 8-10 house seats lost. Meanwhile, Bush stumps defensively for imperiled senators.
  • With the US barreling towards its 300,000,000th resident, census bureau buffs speculate on the national trauma of the additional hundred million to come by 2050: By 1893 standards, depopulating Kansas counties could reconstitute a frontier; Urban coasts likely to swell into a waterless, jobless, dystopia bulging at the seams with immigrants and the elderly, a world best described through the existential poetry of former Atlanta Braves' pitcher, John Rocker.
  • Married households are now a minority in America.
