Thoughts on the Eve of Abyss

If The North is about to blow us up, does it really matter if I buy the low-fat strawberry cream cheese for my bagel?

"Regular cream cheese on my onion and jalapeno bagel please Niles and make it quick, that fucker could hit us at any moment."

Stuck in the Middle with You

My War - Killing Time in Iraq
By Colby Buzzell
my war.gif

Dove, Hawk, Hummingbird and everything in between can enjoy this book. Colby Buzzell writes with the emotion that is rarely displayed in today's society, he writes like he means it. Reminiscent of Hunter S. Thompson... with utter and true honesty.... A trait many authors could remember to use. Buzzell is real, what he went through was real, and to read this book a person learns that war is indeed real. Buzzell does what no other author or media outlet has done, he brings you inside the mortar bunker... if nothing else for a smoke break.

In a Land That Knows No Partin'... Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain...

It was one of those hot, silent nights, when people sit at windows listening for the thunder which they know will shortly break; when they recall dismal tales of hurricanes and earthquakes; and of lonely travellers on open plains, and lonely ships at sea, struck by lightning.<
Charles Dickens - From Martin Chuzzlewit

From the Daily Times
Farmington had mega problems, the only thing in the county is what we're fighting right now (is the bridge which collapsed on La Plate Highway)," said Don Cooper, San Juan County emergency manager.

The bridge on La Plata Highway collapsed and washed up and authorities had to divert traffic onto New Mexico 574.

He said it had not rained this heavily in the area for 15 years.

White House Kept "Major Program" Secret from Congress**
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Bush administration was running several intelligence programs, including one major activity, that it kept secret from Congress until whistle-blowers told the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, the committee's chairman said on Sunday.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra, a Michigan Republican who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, said on Fox News Sunday he had written a four-page to President George W. Bush in May warning him that the failure to disclose the intelligence activities to Congress may be a violation of the law.

In doing so, he confirmed a story that first ran in Sunday editions of the New York Times.

"I take it very, very seriously otherwise I would not have written the letter to the president," Hoekstra said.

"A word to the wise is infuriating."
