…The 9/11 report says,
The President was seated in a classroom when, at 9:05, Andrew Card whispered to him: "A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack." The President told us his instinct was to project calm…
In the Moore film, Bush hardly looks as if he is projecting "calm." To me--and, of course, this is a highly subjective view--he has a what-the-hell-should-I-do expression on his face….

"As you know, the presidential conventions are coming up. You know how much time the major networks are going to devote to convention coverage? Three hours. Three hours total. One hour a night for three nights ... to pick a president. That's about one-tenth of the time we devote to finding an 'American Idol.'" Jay Leno

Subject: Homophobic Republican Hijinks
There is an anti-Kerry web video making the rounds called, "Dems In Love." Over romantic music,
we see animations of Kerry & Edwards holding hands, kissing, etc. Perhaps the abundance of easily
PhotoShop-able campaign pictures was a temptation too strong to resist, or maybe it was the fact that it's beyond the powers of the human mind to imagine Bush or Cheney loving or being loved by anyone.
Still, it's a telling indictment of the Republicans that not only do they oppose gay marriage and gay rights, but, led by their illustrious Ahnold Gröpenfuhrer with his "girlie men," they believe that "gay" is an insult to be freely hurled at anyone whom they dislike. (My 10th grade male students do the same thing.)
Kerry and Edwards should openly call the Repubs on this one — publicly state that they stand for equal rights for all and dare Bush to disavow this video. It's more offensive and potentially more dangerous than the MoveOn.org video with pictures of Bush & Hitler (not to mention much less accurate).
So, are Repubs so pathologically homophobic because of their narrowminded religious values, or are they just emotional 10th graders in a state of arrested sexual development — permanent adolescents?
Does it really matter?

Bill Clinton's life to be published in Russian Pravda, Russia
Swinburne University of Technology's center for micro-photonics have constructed a model of the Sydney Opera House, seen in this undated photo, that is about half the diameter of a human hair. With dimensions of 64 x 38 x 41 micrometers, or more than a million times smaller than the real Sydney structure, the model was built from a hybrid material of glass and polymer by firing intense laser light into the matter in a liquid state to create what to the human eye appears as an almost imperceptible dot, but under an electron microscope it contains the detail and the beauty of the iconic Sydney harbor side structure.
