Front Page: Liquor Deaths in India, Bush Dismisses Iran Attack, Spain's Defense Minister Has Boy

  • Liquor Deaths in India: A rash of poisoned liquor consumption has left 110 Indians dead in the past few days. The incidents are being called "hooch deaths," and are happening a year after the government outlawed the sale of country liquor — arguing that it was ruinous to the poor — but left other kinds of alcohol legal. Now, plastic bags of illegal brew are found in Bangalore’s poorest neighborhoods, those without proper medical facilities. Many of the deaths could have been prevented with access to a ventilator and dialysis machine, which the local hospital lacked.
  • Bush Dismisses Iran Attack: The White House criticized the news organization who released a report saying President Bush was preparing to order an attack on Iran before leaving office in eight months. Bush's aides view the reports in the Jerusalem Post as mischaracterizations of his intentions in confronting Iran over nuclear enrichment, Iraq, and support of the militant Islamic groups Hezbollah and Hamas. White House Press Secretary Perino said of the report of possible attacks on Iran, it "quotes unnamed sources — quoting unnamed sources — is not worth the paper it’s written on.”
  • Spain's Defense Minister Has Boy: Carme Chacón, Spain's first female defense minister, has just given birth to a baby boy. Prime Minister Zapatero created Spain’s first female-dominated cabinet — nine of 17 members are women. She has begun maternity leave. The press wondered whether Chacón would take the full, four-month maternity leave or split it with the baby’s father — a choice afforded by the sexual-equality law passed last year.

Outlawing liquor? Didn't they learn form our mistakes? Juts goes to show that those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Jerusalem Post quotes an unnamed source about possible attacks by Bush. Hmmm, sounds like wishful thinking on their part. Congrats to Carme Chacón.
