Michael Vick to take plea bargain

San Jose Mercury News reports that pro footballer Vick has agreed “in principle” to take the deal offered by prosecutors. I can’t imagine he’ll ever play in the NFL again.  I don’t think he has to go to prison for 5 years. I mean, if he lived in a trailer on the edge of town, what would happen to him? He’d go to jail for 18 months, get fined, and do community service.

McClatchy suggests Rice trying to use Iran sanctions to head off war

link

McClatchy News Service suggests that the UN is reluctant/unlikely to vote more economic sanctions against Iran in September, and that Cheney is clamoring for action. Rice, according to the article, favors designating the Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization, so that the US can impose sanctions.

In any case, the continuing escalation will eventually lead to a breakdown of any diplomatic prospects.
