It is now duly noted, albeit belatedly, that Jim Henley’s Unqualified Offerings should have been included in my list of re-designed web sites. And, to his credit, he has kept the narrow margins that NRO foolishly walked away from. Bravo!
I did not mean to scare you with the Sgt. Schultz revelation, either, Jim. I assure you that I am not Stephanie DuPont.
The Midwest Conservative Journal has moved to Blogspot.
Just a thought- It sure was nice that on this anniversary of Watergate, which was a veritable orgy for nostalgic lefty reporters on virtually every news channel, that not once did I have to hear the nasal intonations of the now established liar and former shameless mistress of LBJ, Doris Kearns Goodwin.
It is the little things in life…..
I am not sure why this surprises or upsets anyone:
Israeli moves to erect security fences and protective walls have enraged Palestinians who call it another form of collective punishment. Analysts say unilateral separation may be unrealistic and harmful to peace efforts.
We have been using fences for years in West Virginia to keep animals out of areas we don’t want them (or conversely, in areas we do want them).
Update: Jay Zilber has it right.
This comes as no surprise:
The European Union has decided to place the Aksa Martyrs Brigades and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestinian on its terror blacklist, but not Hizbullah, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon told the cabinet yesterday.
The inclusion of the two terror organizations is “very significant,” he said, but added that, until Hizbullah is added to the list, “the job is not done.”
The EU has not made a formal announcement regarding widening its blacklist, but according to Israeli diplomatic officials, the European Commission has recommended the inclusion of the Aksa Martyrs Brigades and the PFLP.
A formal announcement on widening the list, first reported in The Jerusalem Post last week, is expected either today or tomorrow at a meeting of the EU foreign ministers in Brussels.
A senior Israeli diplomatic official said that France has been opposed to including Hizbullah on the list, saying it is a political party and declaring it a terror organization could be a destabilizing factor in Lebanon.
Ain’t No Bad Dude has a new addy.
Chris Matthews is interviewing Sen. John McCain about the impact of Watergate, which is interesting, as McCain was still in a POW camp when Watergate occurred.
I guess McCain’s involvement in the Keating Five and his recent attempts to stifle free speech with Campaign Finance Reform leaves him in a unique position to discuss political corruption.
Back from the wedding and still carrying a head cold. The thing I hate most about moving is getting the damned satellite pointed in the right direction, and that is my mission for the rest of this afternoon. However, a few comments about the game last night.
WAY TO GO U.S.A.!!!!!
I am not a fanatical soccer fan (Iplayed for a decade or so), in fact I am a fanatical American football fan, but I was up to watch the game last night, and it was rather exciting. To draw a comparison to what these guys have done- imagine a Division III college JV team winning the National League Championship Series. That is what our boys did last night. Congrats.
Woke up this morning with the dreaded summer head cold. I am currently on a sudafed, chlortrimetron/robitussin cocktail that should have me asleep in a half hour. I HAVE to get better by tomorrow, because I have to head out of twon for two days for a wedding. I wish I could time these things better.
Before I run off, mucho thanks to C. Dodd Harris (IV, I think), for the continuous and non-stop link-love and support. It really was a rough month, but I should be back in form in no time (meaning consistent posts every day- some of them may even be relevant and interesting).
No more blogging for me tonight. Rock shrimp quesadillas, 4 bottles of chilled white wine, a bottle of Laphroiag, and a tall hot blonde in my future. Cya tomorrow.
