Time for a special war time edition of some stories we found Below the Fold:
Clueless at Columbia
Anthropologist Nicholas de Genova of Columbia University told a campus teach-in this week: "I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus" -- referring to a military operation that cost 18 American lives, culminated in a humiliating U.S. retreat, and enabled warlords to continue terrorizing the scared residents of a chronically poor and war-torn country.
De Genova also declared to thunderous applause: "If we really believe that this war is criminal ... then we have to believe in the victory of the Iraqi people and the defeat of the U.S. war machine."
Tie a Yellow Ribbon...
Edward "Buddy" Tyler, the mayor of Fieldsboro, New Jersey, says he supports the town council's decision to ban the display on public property of ribbons or other memorials expressing support for U.S. troops in Iraq.
The mayor, an anti-war Democrat, says: "Where would you draw a line if you started allowing the use of public property to exhibit whatever cause anyone wanted. Suppose someone wants to tie pink ribbons, or black flags, or a Confederate flag or a Nazi flag on public property?"
