Glad you carried a bit on union news. I hope we can all pick up on this front.

What is the secret of posting pictures. Physically do you just copy them from a site the way that it is possible to copy print excerpts? Do you need special permission to copy photos?


Rule is to cite/link to the copyright owner (I've corrected my lazylink). Basic code is:

[deleted - duplicate]

If the photo is copyrighted, need to write for permission.

A link is the safest.

As rba notes, citation of photographer and/or copyright holder is a must.

Thanks Mukasey...this one is a no brainer.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Justice Department opened a criminal investigation into the destruction of CIA interrogation videotapes and Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey appointed an outside prosecutor to oversee the case.

The CIA acknowledged last month that it destroyed videos of officers using tough interrogation methods while questioning two al-Qaida suspects. The acknowledgment sparked a congressional inquiry and a preliminary investigation by Justice.

"The Department's National Security Division has recommended, and I have concluded, that there is a basis for initiating a criminal investigation of this matter, and I have taken steps to begin that investigation," Mukasey said in a statement released Wednesday.

Mukasey named John Durham, a federal prosecutor in Connecticut, to oversee the case.

So who is this guy John Durham???

Can we all please act like grown-ups...

House Democrats and the Bush administration appear on the verge of a new constitutional fight over whether President Bush can pocket-veto the defense authorization bill.

The White House on Monday said it was pocket-vetoing the measure, but a spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the president cannot use such a measure when Congress is in session. The distinction over whether the president can pocket-veto the bill is important because such a move would prevent Congress from voting on an override.

“Congress vigorously rejects any claim that the president has the authority to pocket-veto this legislation, and will treat any bill returned to the Congress as open to an override vote,” said Nadeam Elshami, a spokesman for Pelosi. He said the Speaker is keeping all legislative options on the table.
