The week's news at a glance.

Actress Jane Fonda announced this week that she is planning a nationwide bus tour to protest the Iraq war. “I have not taken a stand on any war since Vietnam,” Fonda said in New Mexico while promoting her book My Life So Far. “It’s going to be pretty exciting.” Fonda, 67, has been vilified by veterans’ groups since 1972, when she posed behind an anti-aircraft gun with enemy troops in North Vietnam calling for an end to the war. She now calls the stunt a “lapse of judgment,” but many veterans still angrily refer to her as Hanoi Jane. “She did enough damage in Vietnam,” said Lee Hadziyianis, 33, a veteran who served in Iraq. “She should keep her mouth shut.”
