Quick Fix 6 — 3/8/06

1. APhoto Fix: High school girls walk past the painted protection wall in the centre of Irbil, a city in the Kurdish controlled north 217 miles north of Baghdad Wednesday. Daily killings, bombings and escalating violence confine most Iraqi women to their homes and a tormented lifestyle, as the world celebrates March 8, International Women’s Day. (AP Photo/Sasa Kralj)

2. Cartoon Fix: Signe Wilkinson (Middle East N-partners), Drew Litton (USA sports distraction), and Henry Payne (The Oscars).

3. Humor Fix: Real shocker (Sunday) night was that “Crash” upset “Brokeback Mountain” to win best picture. They were not happy in West Hollywood. They were looting pottery barns, flipping over Volvos, smashing Liza Minnelli records. It was ugly — Jay Leno.

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: Study warns girls about spring break here, Abramoff: “I was a killer” here, Cheney donates $2.7M to center that saved life here, Internet tops TV as most popular Brit pasttime here, and Hillary adviser wants to data mine Dems here.

6. Opinion Fix: George Will/Washington Post (Academics get dose of Roberts’ medicine), A. Yasmine Rassam/Independent Women’s Forum (International Women’s Day), Mark Mellman/The Hill (Tide rolling Dems’ way?), Dick Morris/The Hill (Clintons pass in the night), John Stossel/RealClearPolitics (Inescapable facts on public education).
