I'd like to ask all my readers to click on over to Otto's Inca Kola News and give it a read. Then, if you are so inclined, head on over to the 2008 Weblog Awards and vote for him. It's easy, it's free, and it means a lot to a blogger to get some recognition (not to mention possible revenue). Even better: bookmark him and read him. He knows what's going on.

A construction official billed the government for supplies that were never delivered for the cleanup of a toxic ground zero skyscraper in exchange for cash, clothes and trips to the Caribbean, prosecutors said Tuesday.
Robert Chiarappa, 45, of Brooklyn, was charged with grand larceny in the theft of $1.2 million in fake invoices for work on the former Deutsche Bank
tower across the street from the World Trade Center site.
Chiarappa was the purchasing agent for the John Galt Corp., a contractor fired from the job and later indicted on manslaughter charges for a 2007 fire that killed two firefighters at the toxic skyscraper. The criminal investigation of the fire uncovered evidence of the theft, according to the Manhattan district attorney's office.

Has Branko Marinkovic been arrested in Santa Cruz and spirited away to La Paz? La Razón reported just that last week. But commenter Franco at the Blog From Bolivia questions that report, as Marinkovic still appears to be speaking to reporters from his native Santa Cruz. And the picture from La Razón just doesn't look right. Anybody know what's going on?
