UF faculty to Bush: No honorary degree
Gainesville Sun, FL - Mar 23, 2007
In a move that UF President Bernie Machen called a "horrible mistake," UF's Faculty Senate voted Thursday against granting former Gov. Jeb Bush an honorary degree ..."I really don't feel this is a person who has been a supporter of UF," Price told The Sun after the vote.

Price criticized Bush for allowing the approval of three new medical schools during his tenure, a move that she says has "diluted those resources and hurt the University of Florida in each instance."

Maybe it's time to get away from the negative and focus on the positive things the Bush administration has done for us in the past 6 years. Oh my God, I've just come up with another "Shortest Books in the World" title! - Grant Gerver,

Disturbing News


Meanwhile, Back in New Orleans


Sixty-four-year-old Vivian Westerman rode out Hurricane Katrina in her 19th-century house. So terrible was the experience that she wanted two things before the 2006 season arrived: a backup power source and a gun. "I got a 6,000-watt generator and the cutest little Smith & Wesson, snub-nose .38 you ever saw," she boasted. "I've never been more confident." People across New Orleans are arming themselves — not only against the possibility of another storm bringing anarchy, but against the violence that has engulfed the metropolitan area in the 19 months since Katrina, making New Orleans the nation's murder capital.

Republican Shenanigans

Meanwhile, Back in the White House


Rovian theory suggests the following: The eight U.S. attorneys were fired not only to purge the Justice Department of some prosecutors who were insufficiently willing to use the power of their offices to attack Democrats and protect Republicans --- but also to install favored people who wouldn't have such scruples. And, thanks to a provision snuck into law by a Bush administration henchman (who has since been granted a job as -- you guessed it -- a U.S. attorney) there would be none of those pesky safeguards to prevent those jobs going to unqualified hacks.

Subject: The mission


Hi Lisa,
I think I got lost over the last couple of years. I thought the mission
(our job) was to:

* Disarm Iraq's WMD's
* Remove Saddam Hussein from power
* Allow Iraqi's free elections
* Give the power back to the Iraqi government and people

Best I can tell, all that's been done but I still hear W and Cheney and
Tony Snow talking about not leaving until the job is done.

Here's the confusing part. What is the job and how do we know when it's
Just curious.



The mission/job was getting the oil. Wasn't it?


My guess the job is done when Bush pumps out all of the oil.
