Friday's various links and comments

Howard Kurtz has a column looking at the political scene. He addresses liberal displeasure with current Democrat leadership, the Dubai World Port deal, and various other issues. The funniest thing in the article was when Kurtz quoted some lefty from Salon magazine complaining that Chris Matthews of Hardball was too conservative. This is the same Chris Matthews who is a lifelong Democrat, served on Tip O'Neill's congressional staff and was a speech writer for President Jimmy Carter. If Matthews is too conservative for ya, then you have problems.

Here is an article about a 100th birthday party for a retired New York police detective accompanied by some stats about our aging population.

A week or so ago, I meant to post about Mayor Nagin of New Orleans wearing a military uniform with 4 stars and various ribbons - obviously an honor he has not earned. It is just as well that I didn't as here is an article that addressed it better than I would have. The author, Sarah Smiley knows what she is speaking about, she was excoriated a few years back for wearing her husbands Navy combination hat in a silly picture that got published. A key difference to me anyway is Smiley wasn't wearing the entire uniform and nothing from the picture would lead one to believe she was in the military. Either way Nagin remains a clown.

The Washington Times examines Sen. Schumer's role in scuttling the Dubai port deal.

Gale Norton announced that she is resigning from her position as Secretary of the Interior. This is somewhat surprising in its timing. I expected major changes in Bush's cabinet after he was reelected in 2004 but figured any still in their jobs now would stay on until after the mid-term elections.
