I've been pretty negligent about posting of late - well : actually since December 20 th, when my wife underwent massive surgery. It looked-for at least a week-as if we were going to lose her; but,as of last night,she is out of the Intensive Care Unit,and bedded down in an Intermediate Care Unit : a classy private room and a seeming absence of nursing staff (!)
Let me give an example. My wife felt chilly and requested an additional blanket. I went out to the nurses' desk...and was directed to the linen closet. "Help yourself,sir !"
Let's see. Looking around the internet (I've lost patience with TV) I see things are still pretty much the same.
The Democrats,who were furious with Bush because he did not send large numbers of additional troops into Iraq, are now in power- and are "just horrified" that Bush might consider "swarming" the terrorists and putting them out of business altogether.
The NY Times , CNN, and some of the other media outlets are still in a funk because the Iraqi government made it a high priority to hang Saddam Hussein. With Hussein alive, the Ba'athists (who are , after all good Socialists) would have had a "heroic figure" to rally around. They might have managed to spring him from prison, and start the whole mad circus up again. Think of all the second guessing the media could have employed !! ( Oh well. Maybe they'll manage to make the "martyred leader" bit pay off. Read the book,see the movie,listen to the song. Buy the action figures ! - Batteries sold separately.)
A newspaper in the UK has published - in considerable detail - how Israel will attack the Iranian nuclear facilities. It's all there: the bunker busters, the commando teams,the air strikes, and the yadda-yadda.
Israeli sources described to story as "inventive" and entertaining - but quite untrue. (Oh, well.)
Let's see, what else ? Oh. Here's something: Illegal alien invaders are going to rape our livestock and run off with our wives and daughters: making use of the new NAFTA superhighway. (Well, that's the gist of it anyway.)
I'll spare you examples because the disease is so widespread ; but I'm pleased to report the internet is chock full of moonbats (present company excepted ), who represent all fringes of the political spectrum...but you knew that already, didn't you ?
One of my teachers said one should not end an essay with a question mark...so I won't.
