Pakistan to delay purchase of US F-16s after quake: Musharraf.

>> Pakistan is to postpone the purchase of F-16 fighters from the United States so it can concentrate on helping the victims of last month's earthquake, President Pervez Musharraf said. "We are going to postpone that... we want to bring maximum relief and construction efforts," Musharraf told reporters on Friday in the quake-hit Pakistani Kashmir capital of Muzaffarabad when asked about buying the jets. <<

Yoo bad that's not how we're planning to handle the Bush budget deficit, istead another round of cuts in domestic spending, especially for the poor.

How's Pakistan's healthcare system?

Sounding like you might want to put it on the list of places to move that do things better.

Medicare/Medicaid has been a boondoggle out of control for some time now. There will be more cuts needed as with all "entitlement" spending.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
