AIR FORCE FROLICS ( one for Jimboloco . . .)

Here's a quote for Jim: "Air Force standards are very exacting when it comes to munitions handling," he said. "The weapons were always in our custody and there was never a danger to the American public." And the transportation by airplane of five 150 kiloton nuclear weapons over the roof of my house...

We are getting farther and farther from the smell of "reality", Jack.

William Gibson's new book, SPOOK COUNTRY, conjures a bit of the atmosphere created by the GWB ghoulies . . .

You might find it moderately interesting to look at . . .

Good vibes,

IRAQ, VIETNAM, BUSH

After having consistently denied that any correlation whatsoever existed between Vietnam and Iraq, Bush's handlers and speechwriters decided to make that "nonexistent" connection a talking point-- by reversing themselves.

Jim is correct about wrong priorities. I am no respecter of Republican persons, as many of you have discerned by now. But I think the Idaho cops are a little shoe- tap-happy, and it's a shame, as my wife commented, that this "sting" probably wouldn't have happened in a women's restroom . . . A shame...

Bush is, of course, an idiot non-reader, the kind I'm familiar with from my decades in the saddle, teaching. They speak with loud voices, sure of themselves, like guys who change tires for a living, sure that nothing except where the rubber meets the road is worth knowing. How can you get your own p...

No doubt, gentleman, the Iraq War is a purposive distraction from "what's really going on" all right. As Bill Moyers says, that consists of taking money from the pockets of the many and putting it in the pockets of THE FEW. Here's a good article on the "decline of the superpower" on Tom Engelhardt's...

BRIDGE COLLAPSE/ COST OF IRAQ WAR

Many bridges in the U.S. are in bad repair. The recent bridge collapse could have been averted. Want to see where the billions to repair bridges are going? Make sure to compare the Iraq War costs with other equivalent expenditures ( that could be funded were we not "at war" . . .): ( link) http://ww...

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND (?) Barbara Ehrenreich ( THE NATION)

This Land is My Land by Barbara Ehrenreich I took a micro-vacation last week–nine hours in Sun Valley before an evening speaking engagement. The sky was deep blue, the air crystalline, the hills green and not yet on fire. Strolling out of the Sun Valley Lodge, I found a tiny tourist village, complet...
