Oughta Hear, Oughta See
....the tone of casual dismissal in Pervez Musharrif's voice when he says it's not amongst his government's priorities in Pakistan to look for Bin Laden; declaiming it was a tribal issue. It's really disingenuous. If I ever pulled an disinegnuous tone like that in front of my Mom, she would've slapped me silly & then proceed to "expand my conscientiousness" about what I owed to humanity.
...and see the new documentary on PBS, "The Jewish Americans segment "Home". It's a really well done work and asks some interesting philosophical question that are looking forward to the future.
I hear Suharto is taking his time on his deathbed over there in Indonesia. He was a bastard in a lot of ways. Does anyone here ever think what would happen if a purge occurred in our own governments? What would the implications be for us average jacks & jills? What do you think?
Mmm... Fred Thompson dropped out of the Presidential race on the Republican party side. Not enough money, not enough votes and a lot dour seeming. Governor Richardson on the Democratic side dropped out last week after New Hampshire. He's let us New Mexican's know he's "back." Oh and he's growing a beard now. Da gov'ner is not one of those guys who looks good with 3, 4 days worth of stubble. But hey, it's good to be home. The campaign trail is a bit rough on a fella.
Ran across two separate stories about stupid criminals shooting themselves in their asses while committing their petty crimes. A third guy, a robber shot himself in his foot with a .45. I really wanna cheer them on... maybe they'll get it right and hit an artery or at least do a self-vasectomy! They should. Shouldn't they?
