Ask yourself

Why George, Senior is visiting Russia.

You name it and market players were buzzing Thursday about the real reasons behind the former American leader's visit -- an $18 billion play by U.S. oil giant ChevronTexaco for a blocking stake in the new Yukos-Sibneft combo? The launch of a $500 million private tie-up between Alfa Group and Pentagon-connected Carlyle Group? Divvying up the hydrocarbon resources of postwar Iraq?

More speculation follows in the body of the article.

And on the side of the other side, read this and think about it carefully. There's much truth in it.

It brings up another thing I've been pondering which is, if we're still in this mess in '04 and Dubya doesn't (please) get re-elected, exactly how are we going to handle this mess? Are we going to bow out of the "war on terror"? Are we going to return to signing off on the same kind of U.N. resolutions most countries ignore now? Are we going to keep making pompous speeches about how everyone ought to get along while we sell guns and ammo to everyone on the planet with a grudge?

On a more personal note, I have no objection to the idea of looking 10 years younger After all, I'm already on a diet to look 10 years thinner, aren't I? The only problem is where to get fresh salmon in Denver. (Well, and trying to force fish down at breakfast.)

You should mix the fish in with your oatmeal and sprinkle brown sugar on top. It's a taste sensation!

Thanks for the link!

For fresh salmon, try Costco. No, really. I can't get good fresh seafood here in Vegas, either. But Costco has nice big salmon pieces at reasonable prices.

Sushi for breakfast,
Sushi for lunch,
Sushi for dinnertime...

Of course the one, most important thing in that whole silly "diet" is the one everyone will ignore and that's why it's put on the end: "Exercise every day." That's the key to better health, period - moderate and regular exercise and sensible eating. We all know it. We've all been told it repeatedly. But we don't want to hear it. And that's why silly fad diets thrive.

Hey, I exercise! Every day!

Jason - I'll go check out the link when I have a sec. Been out of town and now I'm busy, busy, busy today.
