Chuck, over at You Big Mouth, You! has a good breakdown of a bus-truck accident that occurred just down I-390 over the weekend in the quiet little town of Geneseo. He’s got some pics, as well. One thing Chuck has no way to know as of the time he wrote the excellent bit, was that [...]
930/WBEN is reportiing from nearby Buffalo: “Sen. Hillary Clinton collapsed during an appearance here Monday before delivering a speech on Social Security.” Well, now. How’s THIS going to play, I wonder?
I’ll let you in on something. A series of less than happy events has been happening at Casa De Bit this past weekend. To begin with, my mother-in-law suffered a stroke and is hospitalized. At the moment we’re not sure of a prognosis. Upon boarding her dog at the vet for the duration, we were [...]
Captain’s Quarters has an interesting writeup this morning of the fallout from the Memogate scandal… where CBS tossed what small amount of credibility it had left in the crapper to pursue an anti-Bush lie as if it were fact. A must read.
Billy Beck this morning notes a quote from Mike Siverman; who gets the question of Saddam and WMD as close as no matter. I quote it in full here because at the moment, Cold Fury is offline… bandwidth. WMDs were by no means the only reason to remove Saddam. Saddam was an avowed enemy of [...]
Hiding, mostly. I’ve checked up on all the usual suspects. Josh Marhsall has said nothing at all about them. So too, is Crooked Timber, with the exception of this write up on what they want to see happening now… as if anyone’s going to take them seriously following the whining they’ve been doing all along…. [...]
New York Post has a story posted you need to see. I was about to say “you wonder why more of the press hasn’t posted such stories”, but you know why. The Iraqis are happy, and the world-wide left… the press included, are ticked.
If I’m to trust Bloomberg’s reporting on the matter, George Soros seems right ticked. I guess I would be too, if I’d invested that kind of money for the kind of return he got. Says the Hungarian socialist: “Kerry did not, actually, offer a credible and coherent alternative,” Soros, 74, said yesterday in an interview [...]
John Kerry says we shouldn’t over-hype the vote in Iraq. John Kerry questions the legitimacy of the Iraqi elections, because not everyone turned out. “”I’m afraid there were some areas where the turnout is extremely low, and that’s the Sunni Triangle areas or parts thereof,” he said. “And that’s the challenge that we now face. [...]
Ed over at the Captain’s Quarters says his wife is on the list for a pancreas transplant. My thoughts and prayers are with them both.
Last weekend, I paid a short visit to my old school. Just long enough to look in the window. It’s amazing how much one can draw from such a short visit to a place of one’s youth, and the feelings that kind of visit generates. My Old School goes on.
I happened by the place where I went to grade school, the other day. I’d not stopped there in years. No real reason to, that school officials, or the police, for that matter would accept, though I’d driven by the place often enough. Purely on a whim I pulled in. Nobody was around, save the [...]
Over at QandO , Jon Henke writes about Bloggers who write about Blogging. Which, come to think of it, makes this a post about bloggers who write about bloggers who write about quoting bloggers who write about blogging other bloggers. Or something.
Reynolds makes note of Lileks, who in turn says: “However the election goes will be one thing; how it’s reported is another. The thing to watch is the position of the Damning But, the old DB. The DB will probably bob up in the first or second paragraphs of most dispatches. “The election went as [...]
Peggy Noonan has written up a second op-ed, a follow on to her last one. I suppose she felt the need to respond to what must have been harsh chatter… harsher, I think than I was in last weekend’s BitsBIT. “Why don’t I see the speech as so many others do, as a thematic and [...]
