apparently the manufacturing is shut down temporarily.  I was driving all over the place looking, to no avail.

Foreign Affairs:

Saddam’s Delusions: The View from the Inside.  “By 2003, the Iraqi military was reeling from 13 years of almost continuous engagement with U.S. and British air forces, the accumulating effects of sanctions, and the insidious impact of the regime’s dysfunctional policies. These pressures had all helped drive the Iraqi military into a state of chronic decline. The Iraqi military’s main mission was to ensure the internal security of the Baathist dictatorship. Concerned about everything except fighting wars, the Iraqi military, which had once aspired to a Western-like profession of arms, became focused on militarily irrelevant—but nonetheless life-and-death—issues.”  This is what most of us believed ... until the Administration claimed they had concrete information about WMDs.

Here’s your fiscal conservatives: Senate Votes to Raise Debt Limit.  Two quotes I’ll post here.  “The increase to $9 trillion represents about $30,000 for every man, woman and child in the United States.”  And, “Before approving the bill, Republicans rejected by a 55-44 vote an amendment by Max Baucus, D-Mont., to mandate a Treasury study on the economic consequences of foreigners holding an increasing portion of the U.S. debt.”  Republicans don’t want their constituency to know how they’ve allowed much of our overgenerous debt to be held by ‘Communist’ China ...

Addressing the ‘clutter of signs’.  I suggest big ones on Old Pecos Trail, St. Francis and Cerrillos: “DOWNTOWN THATAWAY >” and do away with the rest.  Though the Museum Hill signs are tastefully done.

I had some time to do some little fixes on the site, along with the WP 2.02 upgrade.  A plug-in, and archives and categories present in a much more friendly manner, though I need to add excerpts.  Now to pull the old html archives into line with the current design.  This site was getting a bit embarrassing, at times, with the lack of basic functionality.  I also need to paginate those categories and archives, too ...

Purveyors of violence will have to get on without me.  The constant one-upmanship of ugliness, gore, violence bores me to death, too.  It cannot take the place of real creativity, real ideas ... real plot.

Senate G.O.P. Blocks Tight Budget Rule.  Still snorting the supply-side ‘cocaine.’  Is the economy growing its way out of debt, thanks to low taxes?  Only if you stop spending like nabobs.  Light a candle for the balanced budget amendment, or at least the intention to balance the budget ... when even cellphone companies are plugging “pay as you go”, should this not be a mantra for the Democratic Party now?
