Another busy day out and about planned. We expect sunny but cool conditions today. Yesterday was cool and wet. But with our plans I won't have the time to do much more than look at what is going on outside.
A third busy day planned. Errands and shopping mainly. But we should have sun which always improves my mood.
As always Tom Englehardt has an interesting post. A perfect description of American Hubris.
I see someone else has noticed the discrepancy between Obama's assurances on Iraq ("no boots on the ground") and his military (it depends and will be decided "on a case by case basis").
I can agree with the sentiment when Sam Smith says that laws should be treated like prescription drugs--with considerable restraint and caution. But our politicians, he writes, treat laws like candy eating them by the handful. However, I would say that our politicians are treating prescription drugs just like candy now-a-days. Medicines are consumed (and prescribed by our doctors) with all the enthusiasm of kids on Halloween eating their trick-or-treat loot.
