A couple stories from last week

Here are a couple things I wanted to link to last week...

Eric Margolis: George Bush's new imperialism -- a history lesson on how Iraq came to be and how history could unfortunately repeat itself.

Also, there was this story about a man attacked by a Cougar on Northern Vancouver Island. He killed the cougar with his pocket knife by slashing the cougar's throat during the fight. They sent him to Victoria (where I live) for surgery, which at least 500 km away!
