JACKSON, Mississippi – More than a third of Mississippi counties have more registered voters than residents old enough to cast a ballot, according to an Associated Press analysis. In addition to providing ammunition for people who say the voting system is vulnerable to fraud, the flabby voting rolls may make it difficult to accurately determine turnout for the Nov. 4 presidential election. “There is no reason in the world why some of these counties should have more registered voters than they have living, breathing people,” Mississippi Senate Elections Committee Chairman Terry Burton said.

They have become fashionable.” Most of them are aged between 20 and 35 years – in it for the money. And the rewards they receive are rich in a country where almost half the population need food aid after 17 years of non-stop conflict.

The New York Review of Books – On September 18, we released a report in Caracas that shows how President Hugo Chávez has undermined human rights guarantees in Venezuela.

They were accompanied by a man who announced—with no apparent sense of irony—that he was a government “human rights” official and that we were being expelled from the country.
