Obama’s “Bitter” Remark Sparks Tempest in a Teapot -- A week from tomorrow, the voters in Pennsylvania will finally get to cast their ballots in their primary. What will be forgotten by then is what Senator Barack Obama said about small towns in Pennsylvania and the Midwest. The Clintonistas and the media are playing it up for all it’s worth, but the kind of people who are offended by his remarks tend to be people who are going to vote Republican in November anyway. Instead, expect Mrs. Clinton to have a crisis in the next 8 days that knocks this non-story off the front page of the papers.

Iraq-Namese Authorities Fire 1,300 Soldiers and Cops -- While the Battle of Basra was raging, several soldiers and police under the authority of the Green Zone Government failed to fight against the Madhi Army. As a result, 1,300 have been fired and face courts martial. The government is making arrests for “showing solidarity with outlaws.” Clearly, the military training the Americans have provided is not translating into unquestioning support for the al-Maliki government.

Wachovia Loses $350 Million in First Quarter -- Wachovia, the fourth biggest bank in the US, announced a loss in the first quarter 2008 of $350 million, or 20 cents a share. Analysts had expected a profit of $700 million, or 40 cents a share. The stock dropped, job losses were announced, the dividend has been halved, and the bank is going to raise $7 billion to fix things.

Red Sox Jersey Unearthed at New Yankee Stadium -- One doubts if there is a rivalry in sports as laced with venom as that between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. For example, a Red Sox fan stuck a David Ortiz Red Sox jersey into the cement being poured at the new Yankee Stadium in an attempt to curse the place. Yesterday, at a cost of $50,000, the Yankees busted up the cement and removed the shirt. The prankster may face criminal and civil charges.
