Latest Commentary: Volume VII, Number 22
McCain, Obama Continue Winning -- The presidential campaigns of Senators John McCain and Barack Obama continued their winning streaks yesterday. The GOP voters in Wisconsin and Washington State gave Mr. McCain the nod, and he’s now got 909 of the 1,191 delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination. Democrats in Wisconsin and Hawaii opted for Senator Obama over Hillary Clinton, bringing his winning streak to 10 in a row and giving him 1301 delegates against her 1239. This is just about over.

Musharraf’s Allies Lose Parliamentary Vote -- The people of Pakistan have made it clear that they have had just about all they can take of President Pervez Musharraf. Since he wasn’t on the ballot Monday, they voted against his allies in the Pakistan Muslim League-Q faction. Of the 272 seats in the assembly, the PML-Q secured just 38. The question now is whether the incoming government has the votes to impeach the president.

Fidel Castro Resigns as Cuba’s Leader -- Fidel Castro, leader of the Cuban Revolution and dictator of that sad country for 49 years, has decided that enough is enough. At 81, he is no longer physically capable of boring the masses with 7 hour speeches, so he has retired. That changes almost nothing since he stepped aside in favor of his little brother Raúl.

Sony’s Blu-ray Wins Format War -- In the battle of high-definition DVDs, Sony’s Blu-ray technology beat out Toshiba’s HD DVD format, and yesterday, it became official when Toshiba announced it was halting production of its players. In admitting defeat, Toshiba has done what few companies ever do well, cut its losses. This is the first time Sony has won a format war in three tries.
