Latest Commentary: Volume VII, Number 24
Congressman Renzi Indicted -- Congressman Rick Renzi (R-AZ) was indicted on Friday on 35 counts. The charges include conspiracy, money laundering, extortion, insurance and wire fraud. Although the FBI raided his wife’s business earlier this year, he admits to no wrongdoing. He isn’t seeking re-election, but his case could weigh on the GOP’s electoral changes as it deepens the party’s current sleazy image.

Moqtada al-Sadr Extends Ceasefire -- Some of the best possible news came out of Iraq-Nam on Friday. Hojatoleslam Moqtada al-Sadr extended the ceasefire that his Madhi Army has been observing for the last six months. He has ordered his militia to keep their weapons holstered for another six months.

Supreme Court Approves Individual 401(k) Suits -- The United States Supreme Court unanimously voted to allow individuals with 401(k) retirement accounts to sue under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act for certain losses. The issue at hand was language in the law that referred to recovering money for the “plan” rather than the account holder. Interestingly, the Bush administration was on the side of the employee on this one.

However, on Saturday, the Golden Raspberries were handed out for the very worst that Hollywood could produce. It was a balanced week-end.
