Cigarette plain packaging laws come into force in Australia.
Warnings and diseased body parts emblazoned on dull green boxes that are the same for all tobacco brands.



We have the diseased body parts stuff on our cigs here in Britain, the one for for erectile dysfunction is really funny.

Also, this might be interesting to some of you.

Watergate scandal: secret files released.
Previously undisclosed discussions involving John J Sirica, the Watergate judge, are revealed in 850 pages made public.

Quote:
The files from the National Archives show that Judge John J Sirica aided the prosecution in pursuing the White House connection to the Democratic headquarters break-in at the Watergate Hotel in 1972. Sirica provided the special prosecutor information from a probation report in which one of the burglars said he was acting under orders from top Nixon administration officials

One newly public transcript of an in-chambers meeting between Sirica, who was the US district court judge in charge of the case, and special prosecutor Archibald Cox in July 1973 shows the judge revealed secret probation reports indicating that E Howard Hunt had cited orders from officials high up in the Nixon administration.

Several of Hunt's co-defendants had previously denied any White House involvement in court testimony, and Sirica told Cox and other prosecutors that he felt the new information "seemed to me significant".

Op-eds are 95% of the time horrible. I can barely stand anyone (cept Krugman) who writes op-eds a ton. Most of them are so pointless.

Also Politico has a blog about how Hilldawg is the onl y dem not to take a stance on gay issues. I think they are forgetting the last four years where gay issues have been important internationally. lol.
