And Justice for All

Gen. Ratko Mladic, the brutal Bosnian Serb general suspected of leading the bloody massacre of 8,000 Muslim men and boys, was arrested in an early morning raid Thursday in Serbia after years in hiding, the country's president said.

A great day for civilization and a vindication for the International Criminal Court. Strong international institutions are the best way forward for humanity.  Bush, Cheney, Wolfiwitz and the whole cabal that invaded Iraq should also have to defend themselves. However, the US has never acknowledged the ICC. So while the court will not put the fear of punishment into every citizen of the world, it is a huge step forward, and a huge triumph of the rule of law over those who insist power grows out of the barrel of a gun.

The hunting party was a great 2007 movie made about a hunt for a Serbian war criminal.

The ultimate kids wall

What a fantastic idea, I am not sure if I would do the whole bedroom, and I would build some castles and stuff up high, nevertheless what lucky children that will have this Dupolo or Lego wall.

Zeitgeist Personal Transport

Fix it again Tony, Fiat returns to North America with a car that has universal appeal. I find the Mini more attractive, but the 500 is about $10,000 less for roughly the same car. I have friends who had the gen 1 mini and would never buy another one. Very expensive to maintain and certainly not average level of reliability. If after a couple of years the 500 has a good reputation, it would go pretty high on my picks for next car.

Fiat has some beautifully styled cars, like the Alfa Romero 165.
I still live by the old adage, never buy a French or Italian car unless you live in one of those countries. I sure hope this time it turns out to be bad advice.
