photo Cambodia a tourist's nightmare

PHNOM PENH - As the sun rises over the Mekong River, life in Phnom Penh begins.

Cambodians fill the streets to relax before the tourists wake up in their hotels.

Families play badminton, groups of men play hackey sack and a large group of women do what looks like aerobics mixed with the electric slide mixed with Cambodian pop.

Walking around and watching all the action, it's hard to believe that Cambodia has a reputation as one of the world's most dangerous travel destinations. [Read article]

A silent epidemic

It started out innocently enough. Tired from a long run, I pushed open the front door, flopped down on the couch and kicked off my shoes. Across the living room, my mom looked up from her book and gasped. "What on earth is wrong with your feet? Are you in pain?" she wanted to know.

In fact, it sounds exactly like what the public was told about Iraq before Bush decided to send troops in for no justifiable reason. How about we see some evidence this time? If Bush wants to say the Tehran government is harboring al-Qaida fugitives and somehow managed to contribute to the attacks on Sept. 11, show the people some concrete facts and hard proof. No more playing around with people's emotions. No more using Sept. 11 for political manipulation. No proof, no troops. [Read article]
