On this day in history in 1881 the shootout happened at the OK corral in Tombstone, Arizona and in 1942 the US aircraft carrier USS Hornet was sunk in the Battle of Santa Cruz Islands during WW II (and in 1988 Donald Trump bills Mike Tyson $2,000,000 for 4 month advisory service).
I hope Mr. Obama and Mrs, Clinton are paying attention. The leaders of Iran and Venezuela hailed what they called their strong strategic relationship on Wednesday, saying they are united in efforts to establish a "new world order" that will eliminate Western dominance over global affairs. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and visiting Venezuelan counterpart, Hugo Chavez, watched as officials from both countries signed 11 agreements promoting cooperation in areas including oil, natural gas, textiles, trade and public housing. Among the agreements, Venezuela's state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela SA said the South American country was forming a joint shipping venture with Iran to aid in delivering Venezuelan crude oil to Europe and Asia. It said in a statement that the agreement for a joint venture also would help supply Iran "due to its limited refining capacity." Both presidents denounced U.S. "imperialism" and said their opponents will not be able to impede cooperation between Iran and Venezuela. (You don't suppose this is some sort of way to get around all of those "effective" sanctions Mr. Obama has been bragging about, do yo? Nah, couldn't be...) Iran's state TV quoted both Ahmadinejad and Chavez as calling their relationship a "strategic alliance" that would eliminate the current global order. Chavez's trip to Iran was his ninth as president. Before coming to Tehran, he made stops in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. Later Wednesday, Chavez arrived in Syria, and is due to travel next to Libya and Portugal.
Police have arrested a man they say twice disguised himself as a woman to get inside a UC Berkeley locker room, where he allegedly used his cell phone to photograph women. UC Berkeley police told the Oakland Tribune that officers arrested Gregorio Hernandez on suspicion of disorderly conduct. Investigators say the 29-year-old Berkeley man does not attend the university.
