Borat's days of portraying Kazakhstan as a country populated with drunks who enjoy cow punching as a sport may be threatened by the latest action by the Kazakhstani foreign ministry. Here's the rest of the story.

Best and Worst Governors

Time recently listed the five best governors in America. They are Kenny Guinn (R-NV), Mike Huckabee (R-AR), Janet Napolitano (D-AZ), Kathleen Sebelius (D-KS), and Mark Warner (D-VA).

The three worst are Kathleen Blanco (D-LA), Bob Taft (R-OH), and Mark Sanford (R-SC).

Notice how the party affiliations are balanced nicely? The Democrats come out slightly on top but not by too much. If the editors at TIME had decided that all of the worst governors truly were from one party, would they still run the story?

New Ideas From Ralphie

Ralph Nader, the former presidential candidate, environmentalist, and consumer rights activist, recently wrote a letter to the chairman of the Philadelphia Eagles, Jeffrey Lurie, to protest the recent suspension of Terrell Owens, the Eagles star wide receiver. As an Eagles fan, I obviously recognize this issue as one of the most important ones facing our country, however, I don't feel that Nader approached it well.

Nader writes that the Eagles were acting against Owens' right to free speech. Yes, Owens has a right to free speech, and that's why he's not serving his suspension in prison but in a $3 million mansion. Secondly, I'd be interested to know if Nader has ever fired anyone. If one of his campaign workers announced that he in fact supported another candidate, and not Nader, would he still be paid or allowed to keep his position on the Nader team?
