Quick Fix 6 -- 12/20/05

1. APhoto Fix: With a transit strike shutting down public transportation, New Yorkers brave the cold to make their way across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan this morning in New York. After days of failed negotiations with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Transport Workers Union launched a system-side strike, leaving an estimated 7 milion riders scrambling to find alternate transportation here.

2. Cartoon Fix: Robert Airail (The real Christmas Scrooge), Chip Bok (If there's no more torture ...), and Daryl Cagle ("Brokeback Mountain" wannabes).

3. Humor Fix: David Letterman's "Top Ten Signs You're Not Going to Be Named Times Man of the Year" here.

4. My Way Fix: This Day In History here, Today's Birthdays here, Positive Quote here, and Word of the Day here.

5. Top of the News Fix: Cheney defends presidential powers here, NM Demo Richardson in "touching" controversy here, Number of democratic nations reaches 122 here, More US women having unwanted babies here, and Chinese inmates organs for sale to Briton here.

6. Opinion Fix: Debra Saunders/S.F. Chronicle (National insecurity), Paul Campos/Rocky Mountain News (President has gone too far), Ben Lieberman/Heritage Foundation (Alaska oil drilling myths), John Avlon/NY Sun (New York: Hostage for the holidays), and R.Andrew Newman/National Review (No powerpuff "Narnia").
