Senator Hagel Says “No Victory or Defeat” in Iraq -- Senator George Aiken of Vermont said of Vietnam in January, 1966, “I’m not very keen for doves or hawks. I think we need more owls.” Stepping into the role of owl on Iraq, Nebraska’s Republican Senator Chuck Hagel wrote a very insightful piece in yesterday’s Washington Post. Under the title of “Leaving Iraq, Honorably,” Senator Hagel said, “There will be no victory or defeat for the United States in Iraq. These terms do not reflect the reality of what is going to happen there.”

Canada’s Tories to Recognize Québecois Nation within Canada -- Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper thinks he’s got a good idea with which his Conservative Party can settle the Québec sovereignty issue once and for all. He is putting a motion before the House of Commons that states, “the Québecois form a nation within a united Canada.” Despite claims to the contrary by the government, this sets in motion the unpleasant prospect of more constitutional haggling.

Spam Composes 90% of All E-mail -- E-mail used to be a very effective way of passing along small bits of information. For people in different time zones, this meant one could stay in touch without having to time a phone call. Now, though, the inbox is more likely filled with garbage from people one doesn’t know. According to one study, spam now makes up 90% of all e-mail.

Man U 1 – Chelsea 1 -- The forces of good didn’t triumph over Manchester United yesterday, but Chelsea did manage a draw at Old Trafford. The Mancunians still hold a 3 point lead in the table, but it could have been 6 this morning. Chelsea also could have tied it up, but given the way they played the first half, walking out of Manchester with a draw was a moral victory.
