Senator Stevens Guilty on 7 Felony Counts -- Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens, the longest serving Republican in the Senate, received dreadful news on Monday, just 8 days before his re-election bid. A jury found him guilty on 7 counts of misreporting gifts from constituents. Each charge carries a possible 5 year sentence. The juryís decision also probably sinks the senatorís hope of keeping the seat for the GOP.

Rwanda Drops French for English -- Heaven knows Rwanda has had bigger troubles in its history. That said, the government is making a very big move that will have long lasting effects on both the Hutu and Tutsi who live there. Instruction in the schools will now be in English rather than French as will government business.

Wall Street Sets Aside Money for Bonuses -- After losing trillions of shareholder and client funds, the surviving Wall Street firms have set aside billions for bonuses. This is not surprising given the attitude of these people. They are entitled to large sums of money whether they perform or not. This politically tone-deaf move is going to result in tougher regulation than they might otherwise face.

Selig Botches World Series Game 5 -- Baseball never ceases to amaze. As a game, it has strategy, tactics, elegance and tradition. As a business, though, it is a miracle it survives the lunkheads and idiots who run it. Specifically, this journal means Bud Selig, Commissioner of Major League Baseball, for even letting Monday nightís game start, let alone calling a halt in the sixth inning due to rain.
