    you as a nation have got to think fast, this is a party that's not gonna last:

    I should at least mention environmental news, given I'm rioting in my head for My Own Private Earth Month:

    [ten] states in a lawsuit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for what the states say are lax EPA mercury standards.

    Like the Kyoto program for carbon credits that the Administration is opposed to and industry lobbied for to eviscerate Kyoto, we currently have a national system of mercury credits, endorsed by same Administration. Meanwhile, according to RFK Jr. "the Bush Administration announced that it wasn’t going to enforce mercury standards", which may or may not mean that the Administration is going to allow Enron accounting when it comes to the mercury credits. I don't know, but free market nut Kevin Carson prefers taxes to credit markets, we merely note that the state is more accountable to the public than the corporation, and that his "commons" is something outside the market far more accountable to the public than the state.
