Quick Fix 6 — 9/28/05

1. APhoto Fix: Anna Escobedo Cabral, left, Treasurer of the U.S., joins John Snow, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Treasury, at the unveiling of the new $10 note on Ellis Island, in New York harbor, earlier today. The most noticeable difference in the newly designed bill is the addition of subtle background colors of orange, yellow and red. Additionally, the words “We The People” is printed in red.

2. Cartoon Fix: Wayne Stayskal (Intelligent Design), Chuck Asay (Transportation bill), and Henry Payne (America in Iraq).

3. Humor Fix: You know who she is, Cindy Sheehan? She was the mother who was demonstrating down there in Texas. She was arrested at the White House yesterday for sitting down doing nothing and refusing to move. If that’s case why didn’t they arrest the white house energy advisers? — Jay Leno.

4. My Way Fix: This Day in History here, Today’s Birthdays here, and Word of the Day here.

5. Top of the News Fix: Paper claims DeLay post on the line today here, Sheehan meets, criticizes McCain here, Rita causes record damage for oil rigs here, Iraq’s first female suicide bomber strikes here, and Poll: 10% of Brit Muslim students would protect terrorists here.

6. Opinion Fix: Fred Barnes/Weekly Standard (GOP should worry about 2008), Fouad Ajami/Wall Street Journal (Sunnis fear Shiite emancipation), Cal Thomas/Townhall (A prophecy fulfilled), George Will/Townhall (Sen. Feinstein & John Roberts), and John Derbyshire/National Review (Bob Dylan).
