"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
The Good! *Michael Hayden* Hayden - the former Bush administration NSA head and CIA director told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that any attack by Israel or the US on Iran would only delay the country's nuclear weapons program - and would in fact push the country to develop a nuclear bomb sooner. The Bad! *Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne* Horne is on a mission to stop the use of medical marijuana in Arizona. On Thursday - Horne filed a suit with federal court - arguing that, "possession, distribution and cultivation of marijuna are all forbidden by federal law, and state authorization of these activities is pre-empted (by federal law)." and the Very Very Ugly! *Mark Harris* Harris was a Pennsylvania delegate at last week's Republican National Convention. Before the convention - he went on vacation with his wife to Disneyworld - where he noticed that an employee working at the America exibit at the Epcot theme park was of Mexican descent. And - he was so astonished that there was a Mexican employee at Disneyworld that he took to his blog to rant about it. In a blog post, Harris wrote that he and his wife were both "highly offended" that a "person from Mexico" was working at the America exhibit.
