Republican Laughs at Bush Middle East Policies
"This moment of conflict in the Middle East is painful and tragic," Bush said in his radio address Saturday. "Yet it is also a moment of opportunity for broader change in the region.....Haass, the former Bush aide who leads the Council on Foreign Relations, laughed at the president's public optimism. "An opportunity?" Haass said with an incredulous tone. "Lord, spare me. I don't laugh a lot. That's the funniest thing I've heard in a long time. If this is an opportunity, what's Iraq? A once-in-a-lifetime chance?"

Lebanon Crisis, Week Three - Bush Agenda
MIAMI, July 30 -- With crucial midterm
congressional elections just three months away, President Bush tried
Sunday to return to his domestic agenda even while the latest eruption in
the Middle East continued to dominate his administration's attention.
Bush flew here after going for a Sunday bicycle ride and hosting a children's T-ball game on the South Lawn of the White House to have dinner with Miami community leaders.
Thank goodness the Middle East Crisis didn't interfere with his bike ride and T-ball.
"President Bush hosted the 'American Idol' finalists in the Oval Office. Well
sure, there's not really anything else going on. Bush is very, very busy.
Tomorrow he meets with the Pirates of the Caribbean." --David Letterman

Police asked him why he didn't wait 'till he got home. He said 'At my age, I can't take a chance, I have to have it right now.'." --Jay Leno

BUSH'S HEIR CUT: AWARDS TAX BREAK TO SON OF AN ASTOR

Plan for Cuba
"If Fidel Castro were to move on because of natural causes, we've got a plan in place to help the people of Cuba understand there's a better way than the system in which they've been living under," he told WAQI-AM Radio Mambi, a Spanish-language radio station. "No one knows when Fidel Castro will move on. In my judgment, that's the work of the Almighty."

Subject: Yesterday's Jehovah Witness Pic
Boy do you know how to get to my ole heart! "How to keep Jehovah Witnesses etc."
My method is to tell the gals they have three minutes to vamoose. They don't and I say one minute up. Next minute I take off my clothes and minute after that I walk outside and get that hose over there and spray them with water. They usually leave.
Those people always bother me when I'm in the shower, so I snap 'em with my towel!

Extreme conditions create rare Antarctic clouds Reuters
In this photo released by the Australian Antarctic Division, the rare and spectacular nacreous cloud (top) is seen high in the stratosphere some 20 kilometers (12 miles) above Australia's Mawson station in Antarctica, on July 25, 2006. The extremely cold temperatures below minus 85 degrees Celcius (minus 121 degrees Fahrenheit) in the rarefied atmosphere show delicate Mother-of-Pearl shell colors produced when the fading light of the Antarctic sunset passed through tiny water-ice crystals blown along on a strong jet of stratospheric air.
