Apparently this letter is 5 pages from California Legislator Waxman-- he asks Rumsfeld why Haliburton is profiting in Iraq, Iran and Libya, countries that have had sanctions put on them by the U.S. saying that because these countries have terrorist links and are pursuing weapons of mass destruction, (because the U.S. couldn't subjugate these countries' leaders) no company could do business with them.

Protect the Forests of the Medicine Bow Wilderness--Letters Needed by May 9th
A Threatened Forest
    Much of the northeastern portion of the Sierra Madre Range of the Medicine Bow National Forest has been impacted by clearcutting.  But important stands of forest remain. These last stands provide habitat to rare and imperiled animals like the boreal owl, pine marten, and northern goshawk.  They help to protect hillsides and water quality from erosion.  And, over time, they would become part of an important forested corridor that would allow sensitive wildlife to roam freely throughout the Sierra Madre Range.

"McKinsey's optimization program of tightenings, rationalizations and profit maximization, the program of increased efficiency, has psych-social consequences. In the supposedly athletic society, a competitive pressure clearly overstrains many people. The implicit demand is that the multitude should use the elite as a performance standard.."

the Bechtel-Bin Laden Connection
Now there is a new and demonstrable connection, but it is not the kind that the Bush Administration had in mind. It turns out that a money trail runs—albeit rather circuitously—from the lucrative business of rebuilding Iraq to the fortune behind Osama bin Laden. His estranged family, a sprawling, extraordinarily wealthy Saudi Arabian dynasty, is a substantial investor in a private equity firm founded by the Bechtel Group of San Francisco--also the global construction and engineering company to which the U.S. government recently awarded the first major multimillion-dollar contract to reconstruct war-ravaged Iraq.

Rummy's North Korea Connection Rumsfeld declined requests by FORTUNE to elaborate on his role. But ABB spokesman Bjoern Edlund has told FORTUNE that "board members were informed about this project." And other ABB officials say there is no way such a large and high-stakes project, involving complex questions of liability, would not have come to the attention of the board. "A written summary would probably have gone to the board before the deal was signed," says Robert Newman, a former president of ABB's U.S. nuclear division who spearheaded the project. "I'm sure they were aware."

DC members of the National Youth Rights Association staged a lively picket at 5 PM today in front of a 7-11 in the Takoma Park neighborhood of DC. The protest was in response to the posted policy of that store that banned more than 2 youth from entering the store at one time. Despite crime statistics showing adults commit twice as much shoplifting crimes as youth, this store saw fit to discriminate against a whole class of people just because of their age.
