Alleged Nazi camp guard charged 29,000 times

http://news.yahoo.com

Retired Ohio auto worker John Demjanjuk was charged Wednesday with 29,000 counts of acting as an accessory to murder while working as a guard at a Nazi death camp in occupied Poland. The arrest warrant could move the 30-year global legal battle over his fate closer to conclusion.
The warrant by a Munich court seeks the deportation or extradition of Demjanjuk, who lives in a Cleveland suburb and denies involvement in the deaths at Sobibor. His family says he is too sick to travel. The U.S. Justice Department says Demjanjuk, 88, was a Nazi guard and can be deported for falsifying information on his entry and citizenship applications in the 1950s.

NYT names anti-choice Ross Douthat to replace Bill Kristol

http://majikthise.typepad.com

Agreed that Douthat is well to the left of most self-styled conservatives when it comes to economic issues. For example, he supports more generous social programs to help traditional nuclear families. When it comes to reproductive rights, however, Douthat's right at home on the patriarchal fringe. Douthat claims to abhor abortion. If you take him at his word, an abortion is murder. Yet he stops short of backing enhanced access to contraception and sex ed, which he admits would reduce the number of abortions. Why? Because he thinks abortion would first have to be illegal in order to convince people (read: "poor, dumb, slutty women") that unplanned pregnancies are shameful enough to be worth preventing.
