Live 8: Real News · I went straight from Ja­va One to a mini-vacation, thus most­ly miss­ing the Live 8 noise. But it’s not too late to get your name or your face on the list, and—more important—send a per­son­al com­mu­ni­ca­tion (I’d sug­gest FAX or voice­mail) to your own Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment or Deputy or Con­gressper­son, say­ing you’re a vot­er and you think they should pass the word along to take the Live 8 mes­sage se­ri­ous­ly. I’ll do that, and for those who won­der why the Live 8’ers are moan­ing about trade pol­i­cy, here’s why. And on that sub­jec­t, there’s good news: Ap­par­ent­ly, Pres­i­dent Bush said this morn­ing that he’d drop the id­i­ot­ic US agribiz sub­si­dies if the Euro­peans would drop their even-more-idiotic ones. Good on ya, W, and to my Amer­i­can read­er­s: right now would be a good time let your lo­cal politi­cian know you ap­prove.
