Surprise, Surprise -- Shinseki Was Right, Wolfowitz Was Wrong
General Shinseki, who commanded the NATO
peacekeeping force in Bosnia, testified before Congress in February 2003
that peacekeeping operations in Iraq could require several hundred
thousand troops, in part because it was a country with "the kinds of
ethnic tensions that could lead to other problems."
Days later, Mr. Wolfowitz, then the second-ranking official at the Pentagon, called the estimate "wildly off the mark," a sentiment that Mr. Rumsfeld repeated in comments that were widely interpreted in Washington and within the Pentagon as a rebuke of General Shinseki.
"Passover, or as President Bush calls it, 'The Jewish Easter.' ... You all know the story: Moses crossed the border with thousands of people. ... He wandered the desert for 40 years. No, I'm sorry that's the Republicans' plan for illegal immigrants." --Jay Leno

TRUE BLUE Review - "TRUE BLUE, like its creator, defies characterization or pigeonholing. What can be said is that if you play TRUE BLUE on a Sunday morning ten years from now it will sound just as fresh, and new, and contemporary, as it will the first time you play it." -- Joe Hartlaub

GOP = Grand Old Prisoners
U-S Senator Tom Coburn isn't naming names, but
he expects six congressmen and a fellow senator will go to jail.
That's because he thinks they'll be facing corruption charges following investigations involving lobbyist Jack Abramoff and others.
"The Pentagon's been spying on gay groups. The government said they didn't find any terrorist cells, but they did learn that this Fall, Prada is bringing back round-toe pumps." --Conan O'Brien

Subject: Marzipan art isn't
I showed my wife the marzipan baby at the end of the weekend
since she makes things of marzipan. She marveled, did a web search for
other examples, and showed me
It's still cute, even if it isn't edible.
Thank you for writing.
Your wife is correct, in fact, I found this link http://www.camilleallen.com/ and Camille Allen is the sculptress.
I corrected my site.
Thanks again. I love the art. too.

Please, somebody tell me this is fiction
At the end of David Hare's antiwar
docudrama about the run-up to the war in Iraq, after the applause, after the
houselights went up and people in Off-Broadway's Public Theater were fumbling
with their coats, a man in the audience shouted,
"Please, somebody tell me this is fiction."....Hare depicts the powerful
trio of Cheney ("I never met a weapons system I didn't vote for"), Rummy ("A war
on terror. That's good. That's vague"), and Wolfie, Paul Wolfowitz ("That's
what's good about Iraq. It's doable") as warmongers.
Rally 'round Rumsfeld: all those dissenting generals are just part of the liberal media's conspiracy to weaken our war effort.
