Bush Adds Fuel To The Fire



China cancelled a visit to Washington by a senior general, slapped an indefinite ban on port calls by US naval vessels, and cancelled low-level diplomatic exchanges with the US yesterday, in retaliation for a US plan to sell $6.5bn (£3.7bn) of advanced weaponry to Taiwan.

China's foreign ministry in Beijing said the move broke international law and would cast a shadow over bilateral relations.

Google protects drunk e-mailers from themselves

As mornings after go, there are few cocktails more deadly than a computer, a head full of booze and a seething sense of indignation. But help could be at hand for those who cannot resist dispatching a wee-small-hours email to a boss or an ex.

An altruistic Google employee has come up with a system that will block -or at least make you think twice about - the kind of message you will only regret the next day.

Subject: The Real Mavericks



I love reading AHNC every day.

One of our local radio personalities interviewed a member the the Texas Family Maverick's. They are very liberal and have a compelling family history; and, resent McCain and Palin using their name.

I added a link to get you started and would love to see you follow up. Imagine if the GOP couldn't adopt the word 'maverick'.

Thank you,

Pinole, CA


I love the quote, "I’m Fontaine Maverick, And John McCain, You Are No Maverick..."


Thanks for the link...well worth the visit.



I hope you had a good time today!
