Just now on Special Report with Brit Hume, they showed part of the Assam the American Video that ABC is holding on to. Steve Centanni said that Fox News had obtained it independently. There is no link to the story yet, just this link to Special Report (scroll down).
Anything by Edward Rutherfurd. Sarum, London, Russka, The Forest, The Princes of Ireland – The Dublin Saga.
All these books take you on a grand journey through the history of a specific area. You see the area through the eyes of several families through the centuries.
Sorry, that’s a lot of “through”s. Edward Rutherfurd is an excellent writer who helps you “live the history”.
The Captain’s got the story.
The one thing we need on November 2nd is a clear victory. We need a victory that is more than the polls’ margin of error. A victory that is clearly more than the Dem’s “spoiler” vote. You do notice don’t you that according to the Dem’s a vote for Nader is a vote lost for them, not for the Republicans.
Why does John Kerry think that I should believe him?
I can list the reasons I shouldn’t: The “magic hat”, Christmas in Cambodia, the signing of the 1st Gulf War agreement, meeting with the UN Security committee, the 16 point buck, the Boston Marathon, I could go on and on….
So why should I believe that he has a better plan? That he could do a better job in the White House?
Update: Forgot that Red Sox game.
Friday I went to the dentist for some major dental work, and there was pain. Didn’t feel up to writing. Saturday was my cousin’s wedding. He was the groom and his bride looked like a princess. Sunday and yesterday was writing the two essays that were due for class.
Yesterday I cleaned the front of the fridge too. Threw away about 60% of what was on there, mostly expired coupons that I never used. I you haven’t used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, go buy one. They are the only product I’ve found that DOES work as advertised. Also they have absolutely no cleaning product in them and are safe for children to use.
In today’s Chicago Tribune, Don Wycliffe, the Public Editor writes an essay regretting the lack of unexpurgated news printed in today’s papers. He says that papers used to print entire speeches and reports and let the reader decide what was going on. He says papers print too many analyses and interpretations instead of verbatim transcripts and he feels that the papers ought to do more.
“It’s ironic isn’t it? As our readers have become better educated, more literate, more able to to think for themselves and more insistent on doing so, we in the industry have given them less of what they need to do so. Instead, we give them more analyses and interpretation, which they distrust because analyses and interpretation, by definition, depart from the objective ideal of the newspaper, which we have taught them to expect.”
I’m watching Kerry speak on FOX right now and he is just reiterating the No WMD line – completely avoiding the fact that Saddam was ready to restart his program the moment that the sanctions were lifted and that Saddam was bribing French and Russian officials to end the sanctions as soon as possible.
