Fire in Malibu has a relentless, staccato rhythm. The rugged coastline is scourged by a large fire, on average, every two and a half years, and at least once a decade a blaze in the chaparral grows into a terrifying firestorm consuming hundreds of homes in an inexorable march across the mountains to the sea. In one week last month, 10 homes and 14,000 acres of brush went up in smoke.

Dissent or Treason (tags)

To be convicted of Treason in our court system they must provide aid and comfort and commit an overt act plus have the intent to betray and there must be two witnesses. Looks to me like we could get a conviction on Sean Penn but Meyer London might be a bit more difficult.

Trading on fear (tags)
Trading on fear From the start, the invasion of Iraq was seen in the US as a marketing project. Selling 'Brand America' abroad was an abject failure; but at home, it worked.

PR analysts Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber explain how it worked.
