Latest Commentary: Volume VII, Number 106
Republicans Nominate McCain and Palin -- The Republican Party nominated Senator John McCain for president and Governor Sarah Palin for vice-president this week. The convention was an improvised affair because of Hurricane Gustav that kept more than a few speakers away. Ms. Palin’s selection came as a surprise, as did her speaking talent. However, the ticket has a tough path ahead

US and Afghan Attack Taliban in Pakistan -- The US and Afghan forces rode by helicopter into Pakistan on Wednesday to strike at a Taliban target in the village of Musa Nika. No fewer than 20 people are dead, and Pakistan is lodging a formal complaint. Mohammed Sadiq, a spokesman for Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry, said, “Such actions are counterproductive and certainly do not help our joint efforts to fight terrorism. On the contrary, they undermine the very basis of cooperation and may fuel the fire of hatred and violence that we are trying to extinguish.” One can expect more such raids, however.

Google Launches Chrome Web Browser -- Web browsers are like religions and politics, best not discussed at a dinner party. For some reason, certain web surfers actually care a great deal about their web browser whether they are attached to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Mozilla’s Firefox, Apple’s Safari or Linux-based Opera. Now, Google has released the beta of its browser for Windows, Chrome. It is a greater threat to Microsoft’s IE than Microsoft’s search apps are to Goggle’s engine, but it isn’t a killer, yet.

Study Shows No Link between Vaccine and Autism -- The measles-mumps-rubella vaccine (MMR) has been alleged to increase the chance a vaccinated child contracts autism. In 1998, a small British study linked autism to the presence of measles RNA in the gastrointestinal tract. A new, large study debunks that finding. It is good news for kids and parents, who should get the kids the shot.
