US woman arrested in Iran as spy: Why the story may not have teeth

Istanbul, Turkey

James Bond couldn’t have done it better. Which is why an unconfirmed 007-style story about Iran arresting an American woman with a microphone hidden in her teeth is grabbing headlines.

The report first emerged this week in the state-owned newspaper, Iran, which does not have a history of publishing truth-telling facts when it comes to alleged enemy spies.

Then on Thursday Iran’s semiofficial Fars News Agency, which is tied to the Revolutionary Guard, weighed in with its own unsubstantiated report: “Iranian authorities announced” the detention one week ago of 55-year-old Hal Talayan, it claimed. The story was titled: “Iran arrests US spy.”

Tonight we have the honor of speaking to world renown Noam Chomsky, one of the most brilliant minds of our times!

We will be discussing the failure of Socio-economic reforms, and how to address changing the system against all odds. He will be asked to weigh in on Wikileaks, and the dissemination of information in this heavily censored and right-slanted media environment.

An outspoken critic of Israel’s actions against the Palestinians, Professor Chomsky will have a chance to weigh in on recent events taking place in that quagmire.

Due to scheduling conflicts, the time has been changed from our usual slot. His office, through Assistant to Noam Chomsky Bev Stohl, was kind enough to bend over backwards to provide this time slot to keep the interview this week.

Professor Chomsky will only be available from 4:30 to about 5:10, so please be there early to catch every precious moment of our interview!!!

Time for a break from poetry…in order to create some art.

Fear, conformity, immorality: these are heavy burdens. They drain us of creative energy. And when we are drained of creative energy, we do not create. We procreate, but we do not create.

J. P. Morgan — for Chief of Staff

Does it get worse?  

I find myself pining for that philanderer who knocked up his mistress, had a child out of wedlock, and then got omitted from his wife’s will when she died of cancer and left him with young children.

Certainly a man with a defective zipper is preferable to one who thinks that J.P. Morgan should be setting his agenda for each and every day for the next several years.  The audacity of hope was really the audacity of J. P. Morgan.  Who knew?

Of course I could be wrong.  Maybe I am just Monday morning quarterbacking. Maybe the philanderer would have had a hedge fund manager for chief of staff and it could have been worse.

All I recall is something about two Americas.  One of them sure knows how to beat up the other one.

Last Horsie Rides

In spite of popular sentiment in the alternative news network I HAVE NOT gotten “the call” to saddle up the Apocalyptic Horses.  I also have no idea why not.






Again, I have no idea.  My generation at least only had one Vietnam.  The only big threat was simplicity of Cold War nuclear annihilation, that’s it.   Not like toady with major new threats every ten seconds.

Oh, here we go.

Drop the bagel and put you hands in the air!

Massive solar plant in Mojave Desert the first of its kind on federal land

The LA Times

“Las Vegas-bound travelers nearing the Nevada border rarely take notice of the vast, empty stretch of the Mojave Desert surrounding them. But that may soon change. On Wednesday, ground is to be broken for a massive solar thermal plant spanning about 3,600 acres and involving 346,000 mirrors, each about the size of a billboard.

Not only will the plant be highly visible to travelers on I-15, it also will be closely watched – and probably copied – by solar developers. Many developers are angling to start their solar projects by the end of the year, when a federal program that could cover up to 30% of the construction costs is due to expire.

The nearly $2-billion project is the first of its kind to be built on federal land and also the first to have slogged through myriad environmental, financial and technical issues that future solar projects are likely to face as well.”
