I didn't take an audio book in the car with me today for a trip to CDSP. Mistake. I got so bogged down listening to news that glorifies war and violence. Wasn't the original November 11 celebration a celebration of peace?
To top it all off, this item caught my attention:
The nominee for the head of US AID, Rajiv Shah, M.D., is a former Gates Foundation employee and skilled at "building public-private partnerships with major technology development firms" - like - you guessed it - ta da - Monsanto.
Obama's appointments make the White House vegetable garden look like the worst kind of gratuitous gesture.
See Shah's resume here: http://www.politico.com/static/PPM138_091110_shah.html
