Saudi heir's death opens door to younger voices -

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Iran and Arab Spring-inspired calls for political and social reforms around the Gulf. “Saudi Arabia will have to decide if this is the time to set the next generation on the path to rule,” said Simon Henderson, a Saudi affairs expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. First, however, the Saudi leadership must fall behind the successor for Nayef, the hard-line interior minister who spearheaded Saudi Arabia’s fierce crackdown crushing al-Qaida’s branch in the country after the 9/11 attacks in the United States. Nayef, who Al-Arabiya reported died in Geneva, was named crown prince in November after his brother Prince Sultan died. The Allegiance Council, an assembly of sons and grandsons of the first Saudi monarch, King Abdul-Aziz, will choose the next crown prince. Nayef was survived by several wives and 10 children.

Pr. George's school chief finalist for Philadelphia job - Washington Post

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Hite is expected to participate in a community forum in Philadelphia on Tuesday night. Pedro Martinez, deputy superintendent in Clark County, Nev., is the second finalist chosen by the School Reform Commission and is expected to meet with the Philadelphia community Monday night. Martinez previously served as chief area officer of the Chicago public schools, the third-largest school district in the United States, serving more than 400,000 children. The commission could name a new superintendent by the end of next week. Hite and Martinez are both graduates of the Broad Superintendents Academy, a 10- month executive training program. Prior to being hired in Prince George’s, Hite had never served as a superintendent. He came to Prince George’s from Cobb County, Ga., where he served as assistant superintendent and supervised elementary, middle and high school principals. Previously, he worked in Henrico County, Va., as a principal and administrator.

Cudahy arrests add salt to LA County area's civic wounds - Los Angeles Times

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Rick Cole, an urban planner and the city manager of Ventura . "One person … isn't going to be able to seize control of a city of that size, complexity and sophistication." Those who have battled to reform southeast L.A. County politics said the culture of graft runs deep. Longtime South Gate Councilman Henry Gonzalez said he always remembered what Albert Robles, an ex-treasurer who bilked and almost bankrupted the city, told him. "Robles said, 'You don't go to jail for stealing. You go to jail for getting caught. And I'm too smart to get caught,'" Gonzalez said. "The problem with the system is power turns to greed." Just before Robles was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison in 2006, his attorney unveiled a novel defense strategy, arguing that what the politician had done was just business as usual. Dumbfounded, the judge replied: "What you have just said is among the most absurd things I have ever heard." Robles' reign over South Gate had been marked by allegations of death threats, punches thrown in council chambers and vicious campaign fliers. A bullet fired at Gonzalez bounced off the back of his head; the shooting has never been solved. The South Gate scandal also made national headlines and sparked cries for reform, but it didn't appear to put a scare into leaders in neighboring towns. Former Assemblyman Hector De La Torre, who was on the South Gate council then, believes the relative dearth of economic opportunities in the private sector in southeast L.A. County drove some ambitious people to pursue careers in local government. Most seem ethical, he said. But not all. "There's that saying: Why rob banks? Because that's where the money is," he said. "Well, why get into government? Because that's where the money is in some of these communities." De La Torre said the concept of public service is often a secondary consideration, if it is considered at all.

Pope of Egypt's Coptic Christian Church dead at 88 - Newsday

Sun, Mar 25, 2012
Coptic homes and shops — and a deeply conservative religious thinker who resisted calls by liberals for reform. Above all, many Copts saw him as the guardian of their community living amid a Muslim majority in this country of more than 80 million people. Christians have long complained of being treated as second-class citizens, saying they face discrimination and that police generally fail to prosecute those behind anti-Christian attacks. Shenouda's method was to work behind the scenes. He sought to contain Christians' anger and gave strong support to Mubarak's government, while avoiding pressing Coptic demands too vocally in public to prevent a backlash from Muslim conservatives. In return, Mubarak's regime allowed the Church wide powers among the Christian community. In the past year, young and liberal Christians grew increasingly overt in their criticism of his approach, saying it brought little success in stemming violence or discrimination. Moreover, they argued, the Church's domination over Christians' lives further ghettoized them, making them a sect first, Egyptian citizens second. "This was the mistake of Baba Shenouda and his predecessor. The state wanted to deal with Christians through one person," said prominent Christian columnist, Karima Kamal. "We want the state to deal with Christians as citizens and for the Church to step aside," she said. "Christians are increasingly dealt with just as a sect." Shenouda had one significant clash with the government, in 1981 when he accused then-President Anwar Sadat of failing to rein in Islamic militants. Sadat said Shenouda was fomenting sectarianism and sent him into internal exile in the desert monastery of Wadi Natrun, north of Cairo. Sadat was assassinated later that year by militants. Mubarak ended Shenouda's exile in 1985. The incident illustrated the bind of Egypt's Christians. When they press too hard for more influence, some Muslims accuse them of causing sectarian splits. Many Copts saw Mubarak as their best protection against Islamic fundamentalists — but at the same time, his government often made concessions to conservative Muslims. After Mubarak's fall, ultraconservative Salafis grew older and more vocal, accusing Christians of seeking to convert Muslim women or even take over the country. Several churches were attacked by mobs. Christian anger was further stoked when troops harshly put down a Christian protest in Cairo, killing 27 people. In an unprecedented move aimed at showing unity, leaders from the Muslim Brotherhood along with top generals from the ruling military joined Shenouda for services for Orthodox Christmas in January at the Cairo cathedral. "For the first time in the history of the cathedral, it is packed with all types of Islamist leaders in Egypt," Shenouda told the gathering. "They all agree ... on the stability of this country and on loving it, working for it and working with the Copts as one hand for Egypt's sake." During the first post-Mubarak parliament elections late last year, the Church discreetly urged followers to back a liberal, secular-minded political bloc, an unusual political intervention aimed at balancing religious parties. Nevertheless, the Mu...

Burton says he'll leave Capitol Hill, not seek 16th term - Fort Wayne Journal Gazette

Sun, Feb 5, 2012
Burton said Tuesday he will finish his 15th two-year term in the House. He is a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee and the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which he chaired from 1997 until 2002. “He really took it as his job to challenge the Clinton administration,” Wolf said about the oversight panel’s investigations of the White House. Burton also tangled with the George W. Bush White House over Burton’s demand for the release of Justice Department documents on mob informants. “He did get under their skin at times as well,” Wolf said. Burton’s best-known legislation was the Helms-Burton Act of 1996, which strengthened the U.S. economic embargo against Cuba. ...

Morning Report: Duke Goes for Newt - Voice of San Diego

Sun, Jan 29, 2012
They might not be able to but their extended families will," he writes. The former congressman, jailed on corruption charges, suggests that he can help Gingrich with "prison and justice reform, if wanted." You can read Liam Dillon's story on it here and the entire letter here. The letter spread quickly and got picked up by The Washington Post, Wonkette, Politico, Talking Points Memo and even Gawker. Politics Are Mean, Lucrative Cunningham has been a busy letter writer while behind bars. In a letter to CityBeat about Fletcher, he exclaims about how hard working and caring his staff was, and how they shouldn't be tarnished by having worked for him. "I wish Nathan well and remember politics are mean," he wrote. "His opponents use his connection with me in error." Pretty tepid stuff, comparatively speaking. Cunningham also waxes emotional on the topic of being a congressman's staffer. But Fletcher was having none of that touchy-feelyness. "There's never an excuse for corruption -- ever," Fletcher told CityBeat. "To have him take defense dollars and misappropriate them...

Kevin H. White, 82, Boston Mayor During Busing Crisis, Dies

Sun, Jan 29, 2012
John V. Lindsay of New York, who talked of civil liberties, social justice and neighborhood needs.” A Democrat who ran as a reformer, Mr. White served from 1968 to 1984. For much of this period, Boston was torn by public outrage over court-ordered busing to desegregate its schools. Protests turned violent, and some school buses carrying black children were pelted with stones. In this roiling storm, Mr. White was widely seen as a stabilizing presence as he extended protection to the children and imposed order through a heightened police presence. On another occasion, after the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968, Mayor White, as a way to head off violence in the streets, arranged for a James Brown concert to be shown on public television. Mayor White’s first administrations in particular were noteworthy f... (New York Times)
