US bans sale of iPods to North Korea
Seattle Post Intelligencer - 11-29-06
The Bush administration wants North Korea's attention, so like a scolding parent it's trying to make it tougher for that country's eccentric leader to buy iPods, plasma televisions and Segway electric scooters.


Wow, a leaked memo from the White House. I guess if you live by the leak you die by the leak.

Subject: George Bush Library


$500 million for a George W. library?

He must have a helluva lot of comic books....






Why would this cost so much? What would this library actually house....his personal copy of "The Pet Goat?" We can't get any of his actual records from his college years, court documents (revealing his talent for driving while drinking,) nor complete records of his years in "the service" and many of his records of his governorship (being spirited away and sealed.) Let's not forget the number of records that we won't see regarding the meetings that were to shape public energy policy. I suspect that we wouldn't see any books regarding evolution, global warming, or birth control there....let alone any real science books.

I suspect the library will feature his summer reading list of books he allegedly read...just the list, not any actual books. Also included would be the George W Bush inaction figure with his little pilot outfit and a number of photos of him holding hands with various unsavory corporate execs and Saudis. Come to think of it, with such Orwellian terms to come out of his office such as the "Clear Skies" policies that fouled the skies, and "No Child Left Behind" that left children behind, the "Healthy Forests Restoration Act" that removed trees, missions accomplished that weren't accomplished, a Patriot Act that removed personal constitutional freedoms...(which was amazing in light of the fact that one of W's favorite mantras is that "The terrorists HATE our freedoms.") It only stands to reason that a library dedicated to this regime would be bereft books or for that matter, any legitimate information. (I would also suggest that there would be a Bible in there, but since it advocates that The truth shall set you free. ~ John 8:32, it seems to fly in the face of all the secrecy in this government.)

I love your site, Lisa. Keep fighting the good fight.
