- -05-01-07 Bush Vetoes Iraq Spending Bill (MSNBC News)
"President Bush used his veto pen for only the second time Tuesday after Congress sent him a war spending bill that would impose timelines to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq, which he called a 'prescription for chaos.' "
" 'With one stroke of his pen, President Bush has stubbornly ignored the will of the American people, the majority of Congress and, most disturbingly, the realities on the ground in Iraq,' said Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill." 05-07
- -05-02-07 Congress and Bush in Stalemate Over Iraq (MSNBC News)
"President Bush's veto of an Iraq war spending bill that set timelines for U.S. troop withdrawals puts new pressure on Democrats in Congress to craft a compromise even as their caucus grows more fractious on the topic."
"[House leader] Pelosi, who was to join Republican and Democratic leaders from both houses in a meeting with Bush on Wednesday, told reporters after Bush's remarks: 'The president wants a blank check. The Congress is not going to give it to him."

"You've heard the grim timelines: if warming continues, the Great Barrier Reef will be bleached by 2030; glaciers in the Swiss Alps, on Mt. Kilimanjaro, and in Glacier National Park will disappear in under 40 years; and Arctic ice melt will leave the North Pole bare and polar bears extinct.” 05-11
- Planet of the Apes Series (New York Times)
"But most of the interest of the original “Planet of the Apes” and its sequels lies in their skewed, satiric take on human nature. The apes are disconcertingly like us, and it’s fun both to imagine them as better than we are and to watch their civilization developing some very familiar discontents. They have race and class issues and a rather rigid social hierarchy: orangutans rule, gorillas enforce, and chimpanzees do most of the intellectual work — subject to the approval of the orangutans, who sit in judgment like the Académie Française or the Holy Office. The chimp scientists who try to save Taylor are accused of heresy: the orangutans and the gorillas are, to an ape, staunch creationists."
"In the four immediate sequels — 'Beneath the Planet of the Apes' (1970), 'Escape From the Planet of the Apes' (1971), 'Conquest of the Planet of the Apes' (1972) and 'Battle for the Planet of the Apes' (1973) — the back story of humankind’s demise and the apes’ ascent gets filled in a bit, with tricky timelines." 07-11
- -Editorial: Pilot and First Officer Training Standards Need Improvement (Time.com)
"The Airline Safety Act toughened rules about hiring more experienced pilots and preventing pilot fatigue. But as the recent hearing made clear, many of the requirements set forth by the act have not been met. Indeed, Calvin L. Scovell III, the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Transportation, testified: 'The Federal Aviation Administration [FAA] has not met timelines for raising pilot training standards, implementing mentoring programs, providing enhanced leadership skills to captains, and increasing minimum pilot qualifications.' ”
"Those are strong charges. Yet the industry immediately voiced opposition to a new FAA proposal that all first officers, or co-pilots, secure a minimum of 1,500 hours of flight time prior to certification. At the hearing, Tom Hendricks of the trade group Airlines for America balked at this as a 'quantity vs. quality' issue and expressed concerns about the 'need to avoid the unintended consequence of this rule becoming a significant barrier to recruiting airline pilots.” But many experts agree with Capt. Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger, who performed so admirably landing a disabled plane on the Hudson River in 2009, and who has frequently spoken out against the current requirement of just 250 hours for co-pilots as being 'unbelievably low.'
