Israel's attack on Palestinian aid ship full of civilians is horrifying. Why? 

Israel faced a diplomatic firestorm Monday over its deadly attack against a protest flotilla carrying humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.

Pray for our troops all over the world, veterans, active military past and present. These are the people who have our backs, and give the ultimate sacrifice.

Regarding the Gulf Oil Cleanup. I cannot linger in the blame game much longer, or I'll keel over from anger. My throat gets tight and blood rushes to my neck and I want to scream and jump out a window I get so angry at BP and the big conglomerates and the mining companies and the lawmakers who approved deregulation of the safety regulations, banking regulations, methane gas regulations... as well as those who think unions are socialist. This is unconscionable. this is corporate socialism. People are more important than a corporation's bottom line.

Anyway, I have a very strong sixth sense, an intuitive feeling that won't go away: VITAMIN C POWDER CRYSTALS DUMPED IN MASSIVE AMOUNTS WITH HAY BAILS WOULD DISPERSE AND DE-TOX THE GULF OIL SLUDGE. Hay and lemons too. Does this sound crazy?

Israel's attack on Palestinian aid ship full of civilians is horrifying. Why? 

From Los Angeles Times:

Reporting from Jerusalem Israel faced a diplomatic firestorm Monday over its deadly attack against a protest flotilla carrying humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.

Foreign leaders and protest organizers accused Israel of using excessive force in the raid in international waters, but Israel defended its actions, saying that soldiers were ambushed with knives and metal bars, as well as handguns wrested from the commandos.

Israel's military said nine protesters were killed in the late-night raid, which occurred about 40 miles off Israel's coast. Protest organizers put the death toll at 16. Dozens were wounded, including seven Israeli soldiers.

Video of the attack released by the Israeli military, Turkish television and other media sources depicted a dramatic high-seas brawl in which Israeli commandos rappelled from helicopters onto a ship and immediately clashed with activists on board.

Responding to the brewing crisis, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cut short his visit to Canada to return to Israel and canceled a much-anticipated White House visit with President Obama.

U.S. officials expressed regret at the loss of life but stopped short of criticizing Israel until full details of the incident were released.

Elsewhere, however, international leaders condemned Israel's interception of the pro-Palestinian convoy, which was attempting to break through Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip and bring food, medical supplies, clothing and constructions supplies to the impoverished territory.

As the United Nations Security Council held an emergency meeting, French President Nicolas Sarkozy criticized Israel's "disproportionate use of force."

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for a "thorough investigation" into the violence, saying he was "shocked" by the reports.

Turkey, a onetime ally of Israel, recalled its ambassador to Israel and warned of further actions.

'Too Close for Comfort' Star Lydia Cornell Returns to Comedy with TV Icon Kelsey Grammer

'80s sex symbol Lydia Cornell collaborates with "Fraiser" starKelsey Grammer on new sketch-comedy program
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 4, 2010 -- She is a fresh new voice in comedy on Kelsey Grammer's new celebrity TV network, but a familiar face to millions of regular television viewers. In the '80s, actress Lydia Cornell ( playedTed Knight's gorgeous, daffy blonde bombshell daughter Sara Rush in ABC's hit sitcom, "Too Close for Comfort." The stunning young talent quickly skyrocketed to fame, becoming the decade's first poster girl. Since the series ended, Cornell triumphed over tragedy and transformed herself into a writer, producer, comedienne, teen-mentor and talk-radio host. Cornell has now joined the cast of "The Kelsey Grammer/Bill Zucker Show," a comic blast of full-speed Improv at TODHD (, the first online celebrity-branded TV network. The show is a twisted, hilarious mash-up of "Benny-Hill"-schoolboy naughtiness and spontaneous sketch humor a la "SCTV."
The unbridled lunacy of "The Kelsey Grammer/Bill Zucker Comedy Show" comes naturally for Cornell, a veteran comedienne who most recently appeared on HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and in the upcoming film "Me, Miami and Nancy," co-starring Robert Downey, Jr., Jon Bon Jovi and Gary Oldman. "Working with a comic genius like Kelsey Grammer is a dream come true! I have never had so much fun doing improv since working with Larry David on Curb," says Cornell. "And Bill Zucker is crazy-funny, a force of nature. He's the perfect contrast to Kelsey. I can't keep a straight face when I'm around him." She adds, "Kelsey has great taste; he produces my favorite television show, 'Medium,' starring Patricia Arquette, now on CBS."

The show was Zucker's brainchild. Through the social networking magic of Twitter, Zucker was contacted by Grammer, who won four Emmy Awards for playing the neurotic psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane on both "Cheers" and its hugely successful spin-off, "Frasier." Zucker has been a fan of Cornell since her ABC heyday. "Bill had my posters on the walls of his room growing up," Cornell explained. "He tweeted me, Tom Cruise and Scott Baio to be in his Twitter Song video. Zucker's Twitter Song won You Tube Comedy Video of 2009. Kelsey saw the video and called Bill to do a show with him. The power of social media!" The show also costars Scott Baio ("Happy Days"), Mario Bosco ("The Jimmy Kimmel Show"), and the Stanley Clarke Band.
"The Kelsey Grammer/Bill Zucker Comedy Hour" is one of Cornell's many projects this year. Her upcoming book is a collection of hilarious stories about her journey through Hollywood on the road to enlightenment. She says, "Being an actress is wonderful if you're lucky enough to thrive on humiliation. "If you're a woman over 30, you have to dance naked under bad lighting to audition for a role as a hooker or desperate housewife. But men don't have that problem. My husband, who doesn't even exercise, is accidentally handed a regular role on a hit series, A&E's 'Gene Simmons Family Jewels.' And he's not even an actor!"
Cornell soon hits the stage in "Pain is Inevitable, Sex Optional," her original three-woman show at the Whitefire Theatre in Studio City -- written with costars Destiny Smith ("The Tonight Show") andStephanie Hodge ("Unhappily Ever After"). A prolific writer, Cornell has written an historical novel about Stalin's plot to kill Trotsky, various screenplays, and 40 episodes of a TV series based on her upcoming humor books.
Cornell's triumph over tragedy, depression and addiction was the result of a 'catastrophic spiritual awakening.' Her experiences in overcoming a string of failures and humiliations inspired her to assist others with their own demons. Her uplifting Facebook and Twitter sites provide comfort and laughs to thousands of devoted fans -- as her blog continues to provoke readers with her often-brave socio-political commentaries. Cornell does inspirational public speaking on drug and alcohol abuse, mentors teenagers and is deeply involved in women's issues and children's charities.

LETTER FROM THE WHITE HOUSE DEAR LYDIA,  This morning, I gathered with members of Congress, my administration, and hardworking volunteers from every part of the country to sign comprehensive health care reform into law. Thanks to the immeasurable efforts of so many, the dream of reform is now a reality. The bill I just signed puts Americans in charge of our own health care by enacting three key changes: It establishes the toughest patient protections in history. It guarantees all Americans affordable health insurance options, extending coverage to 32 million who are currently uninsured. And it reduces the cost of care -- cutting over 1 trillion dollars from the federal deficit over the next two decades. To ensure a successful, stable transition, many of these changes will phase into full effect over the next several years. But for millions of Americans, many of the benefits of reform will begin this year -- some even taking effect this afternoon. Here are just a few examples: Small businesses will receive significant tax cuts, this year, to help them afford health coverage for all their employees. Seniors will receive a rebate to reduce drug costs not yet covered under Medicare. Young people will be allowed coverage under their parents' plan until the age of 26. Early retirees will receive help to reduce premium costs. Children will be protected against discrimination on the basis of medical history. Uninsured Americans with pre-existing conditions can join a special high-risk pool to get the coverage they need, starting in just 90 days. Insured Americans will be protected from seeing their insurance revoked when they get sick, or facing restrictive annual limits on the care they receive. All Americans will benefit from significant new investments to train primary care doctors, nurses, and public health professionals, and the creation of state-level consumer assistance programs to help all patients understand and defend our new rights. As I've said many times, and as I know to be true, this astounding victory could not have been achieved without your tireless efforts. So as we celebrate this great day, I want to invite you to add your name where it belongs: alongside mine as a co-signer of this historic legislation. Organizing for America will record the names of co-signers as a permanent commemoration of those who came together to make this moment possible -- all of you who refused to give up until the dream of many generations for affordable, quality care for all Americans was finally fulfilled. So, if you haven't yet, please add your name as a proud health care reform co-signer today: Please accept my thanks for your voice, for your courage, and for your indispensable partnership in the great work of creating change. History, and I, are in your debt. President Barack Obama
