TOP SCOOPS


Rosalea Barker: US Hostage Drama

- Keep going down the path! So yells Russell Crowe in the TV trailer for the hostage movie about to open in two days time, "Proof of Life". The presidential stand-off feels like a hostage drama too with no romantic Meg Ryan-type relief and little proof of life either in the hostages - the American public - or the cruel captors, who have each come across on 60 Minutes this week as passionless to a fault. See... Rosalea Barker: Keep Going Down The Path! [1]

Howard’s End: Russia Neutralises Salvation Army Threat

- First it was the closed trial of alleged but now-convicted American spy, Edmond Pope, and now the Salvation Army has been told by a Moscow City court that it is plotting to overthrow the government because it has the word “Army” in its name. See... Howard’s End: Russia Shuts Down Sallies’ Threat [1]

And, today, considerably different. How are you feeling? See... Interview Of The President By Rolling Stone [1]
