The New Orleans justice system was troubled before Hurricane Katrina, but the storm then washed away records and drove defence lawyers out of town never to return. The cumulative effect was disastrous as defendants stayed stuck in jail as the legal system froze.

No worries, elections coming and justice will soon join!

************************************

The reported arrest of at least one top Taliban leader in Quetta, Pakistan, may be the first sign that Vice President Dick Cheney's trip there this week worked.

What? He threatened them with a heart attack?

************************************

From the news: Before going online to post those pictures of you and your friends dancing atop a table at Senor Frog's, know that your debauchery will probably pop up on many more screens than you intended. Potential employers, school administrators and admissions officers, and vindictive exes can see them too, and decades from now, when college is a mere memory, those photos will still live on the Web.

Potential employer, my nude photos with your wife is a result of …Photoshopping!

************************************

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has warned that climate change poses as much of a danger to the world as war. In his first address on the issue, Mr Ban said changes in the environment were likely to become a major driver of future war and conflicts.

Who woke him up?

************************************

The US has reported progress in talks with major powers on imposing further sanctions against Iran over its refusal to halt uranium enrichment.

What further sanctions? Is bombing included?

************************************

World shares have dropped for a third day on concerns about economic growth and the outlook for corporate profits. A large slide in Europe and Asia was compounded by a drop on US indexes. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 indexes fell 0.3%, while the Nasdaq lost 0.5%.

Amazing, in the era of globalisation, capitalism is depending on a communist country with monopolies!

************************************

The Japanese capital has experienced its first winter without snow for 131 years, weather officials say.

George, sign the damn Kyoto Protocol!!!

************************************

Turkey's justice ministry has ordered an investigation into claims the jailed Kurdish separatist leader, Abdullah Ocalan, may have been poisoned.

An investigation? Are they going to blame the water as an enemy of the state and spy of the Kurds? And a basic question: justice and Turkey?

************************************

Italy's opposition leader Silvio Berlusconi has said his centre-right coalition will support Romano Prodi's government in a vote on Afghanistan.

My hero! And what should Prodi do now, thank him or start…crying?

************************************

Estonia has become the first country to use internet voting in parliamentary elections.

They have a virtual reality!!!

************************************

Sir Elton John is to perform at venues including France's Palace of Versailles and the Brandenburg Gate, Germany, on a tour to mark his 60th birthday.

Is he going to sing for my 50th birthday?

************************************

The 11th Star Trek film, to be directed by Lost creator JJ Abrams, will be released in the US on Christmas Day 2008, Paramount Pictures has announced.

I’m very…hmmm…how to say that…hmmm…Hooray!!!
