Some quick hits because I’m too lazy for separate posts.
1.) Maybe I’m being overly cynical about the American warblogger coverage. I had a conversation with one person who noted that at least this time, unlike 2003, bloggers aren’t cheering on a war, they are cheering on fair elections. I can get that, but some of it just seems so over the top on our end, and we have nothing personally at stake while the folks over there have everything at stake. Who knows. Maybe I learned all the wrong lessons from the past decade, but for right now, I’m just going to hope for the best.
2.) I’m behind on my podcasts, but I listened to the May 30th Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me with special guest Robert Earl Keen, and it was one of the funniest hours of the show that I can remember.
3.) The Stanley Cup Champion Penguins had a parade today.
4.) On my way home today, I saw a good looking sedan, and wondered if it was a Volvo or Honda, and as I got closer, I was stunned to see that it was a Chevy Malibu. I’m one of those unAmerican types who is, for the most part, wholly uninterested in cars, but I thought it was pretty good looking.
5.) Lily is doing well, and we are so over the crate. Also, she is starting to prance and smile while we walk, which is really gratifying. She also is starting to respond when I call.
6.) What happened to Bill Kristol?
7.) House Dems planning to change how the CIA conducts briefings. Good.
That is all I have for now. I’ll be back later.
