POLITICAL NOTES
With Media Miscellany

Gonzales on the Fast Track
The second term of the Bush administration has virtually begun, and it doesn't look pretty. The Washington Post reports ("Ashcroft, Evans To Leave Cabinet," by Dan Eggen and Mike Allen): "Administration sources said Ashcroft's successor is likely to be White House counsel Alberto R. Gonzales."

Kidnappings
Meanwhile, "staying the course" in Iraq, we learn two family members of Iraqi Prime Minister Ghazi Allawi have been kidnapped and face execution by decapitation, taking this shameful tactic to the highest levels of Iraq's sovereign leadership.

Backsides
In an age when legitimate First Amendment protections are stifled anywhere a Bush administration official appears in public, it's time to Turn Your Back on Bush. It's easy, effective, legal, quiet, and almost impossible to stifle.
