Well, it was a good run Ozzie! I'm sure that you can find work in Venezuela. Houston looked like the Indians....losing by one run in almost every game...close, but no cigar. The dream season is over now.

Cleveland sports fans, drink your conscience! H2O is the way to go!!!!!

Not that I am happy about it. I'm considering rooting for the Astros. I like the way the killer B's play the game. On the other hand, the White Sox also play the game really fundamentally well (obviously) . If the Sox do win, it might salve the wound inflicted on Indians fans in the last week of the season. How? Here is the twisted logic; it is better that the team that dominates you dominate everyone. This way we Wahoo lovers can say; "See! The Tribe fell under a crushing juggernaut! Who could expect anything else?"
But I'd really like to see the Astros fans give Ozzie the choke sign when it is all over!

I think the Astros will be the NL representative. I don't feel strongly about it, but I would prefer St. Louis. Why? Who knows? I quess I like the traditional look of the uniforms. Possibly the lamest reason to pick a team. Thank God I'm not a betting man.

By the way, the mighty Bowling Green State University Falcons were victorious!

Be that as it may, I came across that al Qa'ida letter that was released by the Director of National Intelligence. It seems #2 (al-Zawahiri ) tells #3 ( al-Zarqawi) to (Im para-phrasing) "Hang in there buddy, this war is being waged in the media as much as it is being waged with munitions. And you know how the American media is. Remember Viet Nam? P. S. Send money"
"You might ask an important question: What drives me to broach these matters
while we are in the din of war and the challenges of killing and combat?
My answer is, firstly: Things may develop faster than we imagine. The aftermath of the collapse of American power in Vietnam-and how they ran and left their agents-is noteworthy. Because of that, we must be ready starting now, before events overtake us, and before we are surprised by the conspiracies of the Americans and the United Nations and their plans to fill the void behind them. We must take the initiative and impose a fait accompli upon our enemies, instead of the enemy imposing one on us.."
The comparison of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Viet Nam is flawed on several levels.
- The fact is, Iraq isn't a small containment operation that ballooned.
- The fact is, the Iraqis are actually voting to ratify a constitution this week.
- The fact is, that the American soldier and Marine are volunteers this time around.
All these facts contrast 'Nam. The constant is the media. If you follow the link above and read the letter, you will see that the polygamous Islamofacists are relying on their unwitting (I pray) dupes in the press to spin events in the manner the terrorists desire. I'm sure the bastards will not be disappointed.
As an aside, note how al-Zawahi laments that his favorite wife was killed by the Infidels. Would it been OK with him if his third favorite wife was killed?

Hard to believe Joyce K and I tied the knot, got hitched, entered into wedded bliss four years ago today. I know this might not sound right, but it seems longer. Not in the way that unpleasant things seem to last longer that enjoyable things, just the opposite. We are so settled in a comfy house with two delightful and amusing kids, it just does not seem possible that I was a bachelor so recently. Happy anniversary, [insert embarassing pet name here]!!!!

Well folks, this is my third day on Blogger and so far I am pleased with ease of use and such. Expect this solo act to be a duet, trio or quartet soon.
This was also my first day on the new job. Observations:
- I know where the water cooler is.
- I know the (first) names of the majority of the people in my department. It is a small department, mind you.
- Tomorrow I will ask where the men's room is. That is one of those things I would really feel strange asking for the first time in week two.
- My boss uses Blogger, too.
- It was particularly good to see the smiling faces of the wife and my boys at the end of the day.

My plan is this; a core group of trusted individuals opine at will. Others comment. Very simple! Shall we commence? I think we shall.
