Sandy Berger

Former Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger pleaded guilty to charges of stealing government documents from the National Archives and will avoid jail time. The possibility that he was not trying to hide something that would have been very damaging to the Clinton administration when he stuffed White House policy drafts in his pants is so small that it's not even worth pretending. The whole episode was ludricous but also very revealing, on several fronts: "Where's the outrage?" Imagine what would happen to Condi Rice if she ever did something like that? You're right, I can't imagine her doing such a thing either.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
