"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties. Truth was never put to the worse in a free and open encounter..."
~ Milton
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
~Benjamin Franklin

Quick, mid-day blogaround

Derek Charles Catsam is over at Cliopatria talking about "mission creep" and Iraq.

And Juan Cole is all over what's happening there.

As are Zeyad and Riverbend, of course.

Check out Body and Soul for a thoughtful piece on "private security forces."

Someone took Chris Nelson's advice and volunteered to join the Selective Service board in their area.

Hal's right. That's a good speech from Graham. I might not agree with him 100%, but he's saying a lot that some of us need to be hearing.

And Jeff brings that "income tax" versus "salary tax" thing up again. It's good someone is still thinking about it.

Do you ever find yourself wonder if by counseling calm, you're one of the sane people or just too na´ve to believe what people say is happening? I don't. Not really.

By the way, for my birthday, y'all can charter me a ride on this.

The trick is to not panic. Vigorous, righteous rage , organization and creative action, yes. But don't panic.
