The Kensington Review

21 June 2004

From the editor: It is obvious that pace of world events will accelerate in the next six months, and a weekly publication is too leisurely to be appropriate. Consequently, the Kensington Review will appear each Monday, Wednesday and Friday until further notice.

Latest Commentary:
Congressman Bell Files Ethics Complaint against Congressman DeLay -- For approximately seven years, there has been a truce in the House of Representatives over ethics. Neither the Democrats nor the Republicans have brought any sort of charges against the other party. This immoral and foolish truce ended when Chris Bell, a Democrat said, "It's my opinion Mr. DeLay is the most corrupt politician in America today."

Iraqi Government Threatens Martial Law -- While the American media was focused on the vice president and the 9/11 Commission arguing over the meaning of the word "relationship," the incoming Iraqi government threatened to make a final mockery of the Bush administration's Mesopotamian adventure. Justice Minister Malik Dohan al-Hassan said the Iraqi authorities may resort to "exceptional" laws from the Saddamite days to quell the violence.

HealthSouth Sentencing Undermines Law -- Michael Martin was CFO of HealthSouth when the fraudulent actions occurred that destroyed the company and the lives of so many involved with it. Forensic accountants believe the total damage could amount to $4 billion. In a gross miscarriage of justice, Mr. Martin will do not a single day in jail.

Sci-Fi Museum Opens in Seattle -- Literary critics usually consider science fiction with all the affection and respect that Cinderella's step-mother gave the future Mrs. Prince Charming. Fortunately, the fans of science fiction are more intelligent and usually can't be bothered with those who lack the passion. What ought to give the critics pause is the immense effect that science fiction has in a technological society -- which Seattle's newly opened Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame illustrates.
