1. John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, professors at University of Chicago and Harvard respectively, have written a joint piece entitled The Israel Lobby and the U.S. Foreign Policy. It is an 80 page paper, a good 40 pages of which are detailed endnotes, demonstrating in short that U.S. Foreign policy (specifically in West Asia and North Africa) has been shaped primarily in accordance to Israel's interests and to the continuing detrement of U.S. interests.

2. The "bomb iran concert" bombed, thanks in no small part to a group of alert and active students at Harvard, among whom are my dear friends Sarah and Alireza. To learn more, you can read Mariam Gharavi and Alireza Doostdar's excellent Op-ed piece on the concert published in the Harvard Paper The Crimson.

3. What are these poor pathetic people thinking, putting a picture of the long-dead dead dictator on a big billboard in Los Angeles for the occassion of the New Year?

4. I think these photos are part of the latest loony who-killed-kennedy conspiracy theory, but it sure looks like Bush Sr. was at the JFK Dallas Murder Scene, doesn't it?
