NBA Embraces Affirmative Action

Guidelines will result in more short Jewish & Native Americans on the floor by 2012.



An enthusiastic Detroit Pistons team shows their support (above) for the new policy which will downplay scoring in favor of inclusiveness. The new rules will mean more playing time for little people, the transgendered, and athletes who are not necessarily talented in basketball, but bring a host of other values and viewpoints to the game.

"The overwhelming racial uniformity of the league today has got to go," explains NBA Commissioner, David Stern.

"This is not the America of the 1970's. We just want the teams to look like the America of today."

The Iraq Study Group that President Bush commissioned to give recommendations about what to do about the war in Iraq is scheduled to release its report today, amid new questions about the war.

Upstaging the report is a leaked secret memo to Bush by now-former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld that appears to be setting the stage of a withdrawal of troops along the lines of Richard Nixon's "peace with honor" in Vietnam.

Dated Oct. 16, the memo obtained by USA Today (For the full text, see: http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/executive/rumsfeld-memo.htm) asks: "Is our current situation such that 'the harder we work, the behinder we get?' " and notes: "It is pretty clear that the coalition can win in Afghanistan and Iraq in one way or another, but it will be a long, hard slog."

On Monday, Rumsfeld further released the cover letter of the memo, in which he states: "In my view it is time for a major adjustment" in Iraq, including beginning withdrawal of troops.

"It is clear that the current path in Iraq is not working well enough or fast enough. Change is needed," Rumsfeld wrote.

Ray,

I don't see what's wrong with adjusting a plan. I did on my way to work today as I couldn't hit the Starbucks like I normally do.

So, I stopped at 7-11 by work instead. Also, I was going to have a delicious violet crumble, but decided against it because I'm a bit intolerant of sugar that early in the morning.

Sue me.

The point is that Rumsfeld and Bush should have admitted that they had the same ideas as others (many Democrats and a few Republicans) to "adjust" the plan BEFORE the election. They and their supporters jumped all over anyone who suggested anything about "adjusting" the plan and now we see Rumsfeld had similar ideas.

The Bush Admin. can never seem to admit that they are Wrong - even when soldier's lives are at stake.

I'm sorry. I don't see the scandal here.

Did the Allies broadcast their intentions to the world before adjusting a plan in WWII?

That memo is a pseudoevent, in my opinion.

Overall though, are you saying that when confronted with the butchery of the insurgency there, the answer is to leave??

I'd rather fight and fail...
