Tom DeLay Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison--Politics

Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, once considered among the nation's most powerful and feared lawmakers, was sentenced to three years in prison Monday for a scheme to influence elections that already cost him his job, leadership post and millions of dollars in legal fees.

The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay, a Houston-area Republican, on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering for using a political action committee to illegally send corporate donations to Texas House candidates in 2002.

Prosecutors said DeLay will likely be free for months or even years as his appeal makes it through the Texas court system. Before being sentenced, DeLay repeated his longstanding claims that he did nothing wrong, the prosecution was politically motivated and that he never intended to break the law. DeLay was convicted in Travis County, one of the most Democratic counties in Texas, which is one of the most Republican states in the country.
I can't be remorseful for something I don't think I did, DeLay said in a 10-minute speech to the judge.

Christina Green born on Sept. 11, 2001

Christina Green was on the student council of her elementary school, so on Saturday her mother’s friend thought she might enjoy seeing government in action: the local congresswoman meeting with constituents outside a supermarket near Christina’s home. I allowed her to go, thinking it would be an innocent thing,” said the girl’s mother, Roxanna Green, 45.

It did not turn out that way. A gunman shot Representative Gabrielle Giffords, leaving her in critical condition, and his fusillade killed six people, including Christina, a 9-year-old who loved animals and volunteered at a children’s charity. ..She was born on Sept. 11, 2001, and she was proud of it, her mother said, because it lent a grace note of hope to that terrible day.

Obama Leading the Nation in Silence

President Obama led the nation in a moment of silence on Monday for the victims in the Arizona shooting, standing somberly with his wife, Michelle, their heads bowed, overlooking the South Lawn of the White House. Mr. and Mrs. Obama stepped outside the White House, and with the toll of a single bell by a Marine guard, silence fell in Washington and across the nation.

Hundreds of Congressional aides gathered on the steps of the East Front of the Capitol to mark the moment. The dead included a member of their own ranks, Gabriel M. Zimmerman, the director of community outreach for Representative Gabrielle Giffords; Mr. Zimmerman had been organizing the sort of constituent event that many staff members have attended themselves without much concern about public safety.

China's military is decades behind US

China has insisted that its military technology lags "decades behind" the United States and other developed countries and poses no threat to the rest of the world. Liang Guanglie, the Chinese defence minister, spoke on the first day of a three-day trip to Beijing by Robert Gates, the US Defence secretary. The efforts that we place on the research and development of weapons systems are by no means targeted at any third country or any other countries in the world, and it will by no means threaten any other country in the world, said Mr Liang.

His conciliatory tone was echoed by Li Keqiang, who is likely to become China's prime minister next year. On the first day of a tour of Britain, Mr Li stressed that China had actively mediated to reduce international tensions in Iran, Darfur and North Korea.

BuzzFocus spoke with co-creator, Matthew Senreich about what fans can expect out of this third Star Wars-Robot Chicken special.
We wanted to have some kind of continuity, a linear path with it. Senreich said. "We took the idea of following the Emperor, mostly, and some of the other key characters of the Star Wars universe before the prequels began all the way through after the events in Return of the Jedi. We have the narration through the Emperor's voice if you will, bookending it.
