did someone honestly think that brad was going to give up his life so a few of us oldtimers can talk to each other without having to talk to each other? and so a ton of teenagers can use the program as their bitch?

this was bound to happen at some point, and is the best result that can come of a homemade blog program like this.

i knew my membership money wasn't doing much more than helping with maintenance. and i've been scared of losing it since it began. i downloaded my ljs long ago and have them safely tucked away.

post, illucidate and be merry for tomorrow brings the unknown.

today's shit list

- religious leaders connecting the tsunami to their christian templates, timelines and mythology
- emotional cripples (like myself) unable to deal with change (though i'm a fan of change, there is no doubt that i am an emotional cripple)
- the very idea that whining about something is better than taking action
- small, closed societies
- a world where only tribulation and trauma get the attention of the masses
- no sugar for the black cherry kool aid
- the place where my Office XP disk is hiding
- Andrea Yates and the dumbass prosecution

a bit of lou dobbs tonight

Let's turn now to General David Grange.General, this insurgency is escalating in violence. Every day of this new year, at least one American soldier or Marine has been killed. What can be done to end this escalating violence, to bring order and control?

BRIG. GEN. DAVID GRANGE (RET.), CNN MILITARY ANALYST: Well, it's going to increase even more, Lou, all the way up to the end of the month, and, right now, what the coalition forces are doing are increasing the offensive operations. It's the only thing they can do. They've got to keep the terrorist insurgents moving off their feet just as much as they're doing to the coalition forces.

DOBBS: General, I'm not sure that's good enough. The fact of the matter is that we have been in Iraq now for almost two years.

The violence is escalating. Our intelligence, obviously, is not working. Or we could be dealing, it seems to me at least, far more effectively in preventing these deaths.We do not either have enough troops, enough intelligence, enough material or enough -- an appropriate strategy to be dealing with the need to bring absolute security here.
