Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Bye, bye, George

I wish I wasn't so busy. ('Weren't' so busy? I never get that one right.)

I'd be talking incessantly about this.

Remember the first rule of Washington, kids. No one really resigns from a position of power because they really want more of a personal life. If they were the kind of person who cared about their personal life, they'd have never spent the time they wasted climbing to the top of the power-monger heap.

George Tenet is resigning. It's a smack in the eye for the Bush Administration and their case for making war on and occupying Iraq.

Still Thinking

Also, leaving town tomorrow for a short business trip, so there will be no more blogging until early next week.

Sorry. That "paying job" thing has to take precedence and my evenings are pretty full this week as well.

(P.S. I blog too much anyhow.)

I got one of those "thoughts for the day" spammails a while back. One item said:

Some people are like Slinkies...not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

That's just mean, okay? Most humor is mean, isn't it? Pratfalls, personal injuries, humiliating people. I don't care for that kind of thing. I like Bill Cosby's humor.

It's not spam, but it's an odd little column from an odd, little columnist. I don't know that I entirely agree with his assessment of the situation, but it was interesting reading.

If you think we know how planets were made and when they were made, you might be wrong.

For Missouri residents, here's a Ridiculous Budgetary Pork Project alert.

I'm not the only one ranting about consumption gone mad.

Use. Less. Oil.

Update: Still thinking.

A pause in the action

I've been challenged to describe precisely what it is I believe.

This could take a while.
