Jean Chrétien

Surrounds himself with rude anti-Americans.

Here's a taste of the article :

PRAGUE - Prime Minister Jean Chrétien refused today to accept the resignation of his embattled communications director, Francoise Ducros, over her alleged remark that U.S. President George W. Bush is a "moron." Chrétien said Ducros had apologized to him for the furor sparked by a conversation she had with a journalist at the NATO summit in Prague.

"She was graceful enough to offer me her resignation," the prime minister said. "I have not accepted that."

Ducros, who did not appear at the news conference in Prague, told Chrétien she couldn't recall whether she made the remark but acknowledged she frequently uses the word "moron," Chrétien said.

"I know her very well," the prime minister told reporters. "She may have used that word against me a few times and I am sure she used it against you many times. It's a word she uses regularly."


And this is his communications director?? Sounds like an ignorant Frog to me...

More :

In Prague, Chrétien said Ducros has been a frequent defender of Bush, and took aim at reporters for making much of what he called a "private conversation."

"She defended many, many times the president of the United States," he said.

"And she reflected the position of Canada many times, that we have good relations. So she has apologized to me for the problem it's causing ... but we don't live in as civilized a world as we used to, where private conversations are private."


Yeah, well, we used to have a civilized neighbor to the north, one whose top government officials didn't spew vile anti-American slurs. I guess times are a-changin'...

What I Saw At The Debate

I attended the Bush-McBride radio debate this morning at Universal Studios. I was accompanied by "SF", a female friend from work. SF is politically to the right of me a few steps (Like Jesse Helms to Jesse Ventura? No, more like Steve Forbes-2000 to Steve Forbes-1996...), but we both went as Bush supporters.

The morning did not start smoothly. Heavy construction on State Road 520 prevented me from arriving at her apartment as early as planned. When I finally got there, I had a forehead-slapping moment : I'd forgotten to bring my e-mail confirmation! We decided to give it a shot anyway, though I felt it was likely I would be listening to the debate in her Jeep while sitting in the parking lot.

We arrived on time, and proceeded to stand in a line for about a half hour (Hurry up and wait!). Our amusement consisted of gawking at some GreenPeace lunatics dressed in what appeared to be, I am not making this up, orange jumpers, like escapees from Sharpes. They were driving a solar-powered truck. Luckily for them, it wasn't rainy. Or at night.

After having our IDs checked (luckily, the e-mail was not required, though everyone else seems to have remembered theirs...) we boarded a bus for the short trip to the building where the debate was to be held. In front of us sat a VIP : the mayor of Miami Beach. SF recognized him, but to me he looked like your generic pol : expensive suit, well-groomed hair, personable body-language, gentle tone of voice. (Nice guy. And if he ever retires from public service, he could always make a few bucks as a Jose Canseco impersonator...)

SF also recognized a three-person-strong contingent of University of Central Florida Young Republicans. (This, as I understand it, equals nearly 100% turnout...) At this point, we waited in another line to go through the metal detectors. (Had either of us chose to ask the candidates a question, there was yet another line awaiting us in our immediate future. Alas, we are both cowards. Well, at least I am. But I shouldn't get ahead of myself...) She was promptly wand-raped as a security offical rifled through her nearly microscopic purse with a gusto rarely seen among those not criminally insane. What he was expecting to find, I don't know. (Perhaps a single spore of anthrax? Because I doubt two could have fit...)

Now, having passed through the crack security, we entered the actual debate stage. Within seconds, SF was pulled aside by reporters from the Tampa affiliate of NBC. (Or was it ABC? Or CBS? Really, it's moot...) She was asked if she was an "undecided voter", and surprised me by responding in the affirmative. (Strictly speaking, this wasn't dishonest. After all, it was within the realm of possibility that governor Bush might have, say, ordered his security detail to turn loose water cannon and hounds on the crowd. This, in turn, just might have had an effect on her choice in November. Maybe.)

At any rate, they decided to record her pre-debate thoughts on camera, and then interview her after the event to see if there had been any movement. I, being camera shy (not to mention uninvited...), chose to grab a couple seats and wait. While waiting, I overheard a gentleman apparently from FrontPage Magazine talking into his cell phone, distressed that he had been unable to find a professional political analyst at the event. I contemplated offering myself as just such a person (and if you consider this site "professional", it wouldn't even be a lie! Well, at least not anymore of a lie than what SF told the citizens of Tampa-St. Pete...), but decided against it. The last thing I need is David Horowitz finding out I have a unique interpretation of "professional", and placing me in the same category, veracity-wise, as David Brock.

So. A few minutes later, I notice SF coming to join me. That's good, except the cameraman is following her and still taping. She proceeds to immediately berate me, on camera, for my choice of seats. I shrugged and muttered some ambiguous apology. (For all time, viewers on the West Coast of Central Florida will recognize me as "that pussy-whipped dude".)

We waited for a little longer, with nothing to amuse ourselves with other than a brief cameo appearance by the governor (aren't you suppose to take a bow after your performance?) and the sight of John Morgan of the law firm Morgan, Colling, and Gilbert. Infamous for his preachy and self-promoting commercials, Mr. Morgan looks absolutely Hobbit-like in real life. That's not to say he's particularly short, just that he looks like he should be short, or something.

Our boredom was interrupted by a gentleman seated in front of us. He decided to start a pre-debate debate amongst the audience members. Spewing forth McBride's talking points like a parrot on crystal meth, he was eventually silenced by the fact that he was completely surrounded by Bush supporters armed with actual critical-thinking skills. (Sadly, this guy was one of the handful of people selected to question the candidates. Though the information I received warned against asking loaded questions, this guy was armed with a verbal Saturday-night special. I guess he didn't get the memo...) He asked my political registration, and I replied, "NPA - No Party Affiliation." Then I was questioned who I was leaning towards, and why. Since I was expecting to watch a debate, not participate in one, I offered some non sequiturish ramblings about tax cuts and the President. However, the man completely wigged out when I said, "the state isn't really facing any major problems." Slipping into agit-prop mode, he spoke about the "crisis" in education, and offered a small amount of data to support his contention. (Curiously, these were the same points McBride himself ended up making. I guess this fellow got that memo...) I was going to respond with some comments about the anti-choice teacher's unions, or some such, when the people around me all started talking at once, using this opportunity to opine about the supposed causes and solutions of our education "crisis". (One of these folks, a "gentleman" from the University of South Florida, used the opening up of a high-minded policy dialogue as an excuse to try to verbally bukkake all over my companion. Unfortunately for him, she doesn't like assholes.) Sadly, this was to be the rhetorical high-point of the morning...

The debate was about to begin. Governor Bush and candidate McBride appeared, shook hands, and went to their respective podiums. In SF's opinion, "they both looked like they were going to throw up." A fair assessment, to my eyes. McBride was staring down, apparently reading his notes and doing some last minute cramming, while Bush was taking so many deep breaths, hyperventalation seemed a possibility. At last, the show got on the road, so to speak. McBride had won the coin toss, but had elected to give his opening remarks second. Not a very confident sign, and as his own people said after the debate, "he's not really a master-debater." I paraphrase, of course.

Honestly, I can recall little specific from the hour-long debate. But here are some key comments :



  • The final audience questioner, a high school senior from Melbourne, was a shrill little bitch, whining about having to, God forbid, take a state-wide exam (known as the FCAT) every couple of years. Her contention was that it is too easy and a waste of time. Well, I agree it's too easy, but many of your fellow classmates are fucking idiots who do find it challenging. And if they don't receive a passing score, they will hopefully receive the extra attention they so desperately need (or at least a handful of lead-free paint chips to chew on). And schools that consistently show themselves to be particularly inept at teaching their students the basic requirements of the FCAT will be punished, therefore providing an incentive for schools to make sure students actually learn things. Which, of course, is the whole point of a school.


  • Bush was a stronger debater than McBride (who often giggled through his responses, when we wasn't stammering), but he had a tendency to end weakly. For example, when confronted about his opposition to gay couples adopting children, he summed up his points something like, "So, I'm, uh, against, uh, (whispering now) gay couples, um, (barely audible) adopting." Not exactly Churchillian...


  • Remarkably, the "Beltway Sniper" was brought up by an audience questioner. (Funny. Neither one of the candidates looked like Kathleen Kennedy Townsend...)


  • Bush rather effectively raised questions about the fiscal wisdom of McBride's plan to spend an additional eight billion dollars on education over the next seven years. McBride's plan to pay for it, a proposed fifty-cent-per-pack cigarette tax, would, according to members of his own party, raise only four and a half billion dollars in revenue over the same time period. The three and a half billion dollar shortfall would have to be rectified either by slashing the budget, causing cuts in needed social services, or by raising taxes in other areas. McBride calls pointing this out a "scare tactic". Well, either that, or the truth. Take your pick.


  • The most uncomfortable point in the debate was when Bush not-too-subtly accused McBride of being a shill for the trial lawyers. (Which makes sense, since McBride is a trial lawyer...) McBride feigned moral indignation, and accused Bush of besmirching the good name (*cough*) of all lawyers. Bush responded (against debate rules, I believe) by saying he saw a "conflict" of interest. A small murmur ran through the crowd. (Sorry, folks; that was the high point...)


  • McBride make the idiotic accusation that water is now more expensive than gasoline, and that this is Bush's fault. Well, commercially bottled water can be more expensive than petrol, yes. But it's rather more cost-effective to take a bath with water from the faucet than with either Aquafina or 87-octane. See, I could make the accusation that bed linens are now more expensive than gold. And that might be true, if the only bed linens you consider are those made from the crotch hairs of supermodels. But, if you go to K-Mart, you'll find some that are rather affordably priced. (Especially the Martha Stewart line : now 99% off! Just like shares of ImClone!)


  • JEB! is really tall.




So. The debate ended, the candidates shook hands and the crowd got up to leave. Except for the interviewers, and interviewees. I had to wait for SF to enlighten people from Crystal River to Sarasota about how the mind of the "independent voter" works. Sickening. She's about as "independent" as Himmler at a rally for the National Socialists.

She waited for a bit in the throng of people trying to get either post-debate comments from the governor, or a simple handshake. Bush's handlers allowed 15 minutes or so of this. It turns out SF was, sadly, unable to meet the man. I hadn't tried, preferring instead to eavesdrop on the almost "Rain Man"-like mumblings of John Morgan, who was standing nearby.

We boarded the bus back to the parking lot. Just before reaching her vehicle, a gentleman from 580 AM interviewed her. I commented that she really ought to run for something now, with all this media experience under her belt. As we left the lot, we saw the GreenPeace wildmen waving to the passing cars. I flashed them a peace sign; no response. (Is sarcasm really that noticeable from a distance?) We drove back to her apartment while listening to the radio, as her sound bite ran during local news breaks, every thirty minutes.

Funny place and time we live in, really. The brother of the president of the United States, who just happens to be the sitting governor of a major state, is running for re-election in a surprisingly tight race. The party that controls the governor's mansion will have a big advantage in winning the state's electoral votes in 2004. Florida may very well hold the key to the next presidential election, as it did in the last. So, today's little radio debate might very well decide who wins the gubernatorial election, which in turn might decide who wins the presidency in two years. This was history I witnessed, a special screening, if you will, of the tiny factors, the metaphorical butterfly's wings, that will have an indeterminately large impact on which political path our nation, and to some extent the world, takes in the coming years.

Now, when the hell is somebody gonna interview me??

The British Left

Some quotes from this article :
---
Laborite Alan Simpson called [Blair's] dossier [on Iraq] "deeply flawed."

"Sadly, I think Bush will hit Iraq in much the same way that a drunk will hit a bottle," Simpson said. "He needs to satisfy his thirst for power and for oil."

Parliament member George Galloway, whose visits to Iraq and dogged opposition to U.N. sanctions have earned him the nickname "the MP for Baghdad West," let loose another warning on Wednesday.

"If Bush lands half-a-million boots in Iraq, attached only to American feet and cheered only by (Israel Prime Minister) Gen. Ariel Sharon, he will end up marching through hell and many a Yankee Doodle Dandy will be going home in a plastic suit," Galloway said. "The wrath of the Arab masses will come pouring off the streets of their capitals like molten lava and who knows who will be scorched."

The Left wants to see dead Americans, folks. It's as simple as that. These folks probably danced in the streets on 9-11 along with their Palestinian allies.

The only sure way to prevent this is to innoculate everyone ASAP. But that ain't gonna happen...

"The age that a man, or woman, can earn a reasonable income has been steadily increasing as education has been dumbed down. The condition of basic employability that used to be demonstrated by a high-school diploma now requires a bachelor's degree, and professional careers that used to be accessible with a bachelor's now require a master's degree or more. Years keep passing while kids keep trying to attain the credentials that adult earning requires."

Here's a sample :

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A few thousand black demonstrators rallied on the Mall in Washington on Saturday to demand that the U.S. government pay blacks reparations for slavery and decades of discrimination.

"I want to go up to the closest white person and say, 'You can't understand this, it's a black thing,' and then slap him, just for my mental health," Charles Barron, a member of the New York City Council, told the crowd.

The demonstrators, numbering about 2,000 to 3,000, came from all parts of the United States, many traveling by bus from as far away as Texas. With the U.S. Capitol in the background, they chanted "Black power! Reparations!" and "Start the Revolution!"

"Apologize White America," said a sign carried by one demonstrator.

Barron, a self-proclaimed "elected revolutionary," said if the government did not act swiftly he personally would storm the Treasury Department and take the money for reparations.

This intriguing stock theory is said to have originated from the desk of John A. Millard of Shearman & Sterling in New York:

"If you had bought $1,000 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.

"With Enron, you would have $16.50 of the original $1,000.

"With WorldCom, you would have less than $5 left.

"If you had bought $1,000 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock) one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the 5-cent deposit, you would have $107.

"Based on the above, my current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle."

...will Tom Ridge be in? Maybe. But Bush risks further alienating his conservative base by picking a pro-choice moderate. And I can picture Ridge in the VP Debate doing about as well as Jack Kemp in 1996. That is to say, poorly.

I suspect if Bush is going to pick a moderate, he'd at least use the demographics of key states such as California and Florida to his advantage. In other words, perhaps a Hispanic/Latino running-mate? But who?

This is all getting ahead of ourselves, of course. There's the Senate to be won back in November, as well as a House to hold. I think the Dems will pick up Bob Smith's Senate seat in NH, so the GOP will need to win against Dem incumbents in SD and MN.

Nobody likes us. Nobody. And if we aren't vigilant and remain strong, then someday our "allies" will stand idly by while monsters destroy us. Maybe it will be Red China, or the Muslim World, or maybe even an enemy from within, a 5th Column. Only time will tell. But after it happens, and we all fall down, our enemies and allies alike will hold hands and dance on our graves and re-write our history.

And that should never be allowed to happen.

"Since pacifists have more freedom of action in countries where traces of democracy survive, pacifism can act more effectively against democracy than for it. Objectively, the pacifist is pro-Nazi."

We've saved these thankless scum before, we're saving them now, and we'll continue to save them in the future. And we'll never hear a word of praise. That is the task we, as Americans, are faced with generation after generation. And it is a task we must take up, as John Pilger and his lot surely won't.

GREAT ARTICLE

Here's the meat of it :

Last spring I organized college students to investigate the voting registrations of university professors at more than a dozen institutions of higher learning. The students used primary registrations to determine party affiliation. Here is a representative sample:

• At the University of Colorado—a public university in a Republican state—94% of the liberal arts faculty whose party registrations could be established were Democrats and only 4% percent Republicans. Out of 85 professors of English who registered to vote, zero were Republicans. Out of 39 professors of history—one. Out of 28 political scientists—two.

How Republican is Colorado? Its governor, two Senators and four out of six congressmen are Republican. There are 200,000 more registered Republicans in Colorado than there are Democrats. But at the state-funded, University of Colorado, Republicans are a fringe group.

• At Brown University, 94.7% of the professors whose political affiliations showed up in primary registrations last year were Democrats, only 5.3% were Republicans. Only three Republicans could be found on the Brown liberal arts faculty. Zero in the English Department, zero in the History Department, zero in the Political Science Department, zero in the Africana Studies Department, and zero in the Sociology Department.

• At the University of New Mexico, 89% of the professors were Democrats, 7% Republicans and 4% Greens. Of 200 professors, ten were Republicans, but zero in the Political Science Department, zero in the History Department, zero in the Journalism Department and only one each in the Sociology, English, Women’s Studies and African American Studies Departments.

• At the University of California, Santa Barbara, 97% of the professors were Democrats. 1.5% Greens and an equal 1.5% Republicans. Only one Republican professor could be found.

• At the University of California, Berkeley, of the 195 professors whose affiliations showed up, 85% were Democrats, 8% Republicans, 4% Greens and 3% American Independent Party, Peace and Freedom Party and Reform Party voters. Out of 54 professors in the History Department, only one Republican could be found, out of 28 Sociology professors zero, out of 57 English professors zero, out of 16 Women’s Studies professors zero, out of nine African American Studies professors zero, out of six Journalism professors zero.

• At the University of California, Los Angeles, of the 157 professors whose political affiliations showed up 93% were Democrats, only 6.5% were Republicans.

• At the University of North Carolina, the Daily Tar Heel conducted its own survey of eight departments and found that, of the professors registered with a major political party, 91% were Democrats while only 9% were Republicans.

He makes a good case for ending US support of Musharraf. But, though I support democratic India over autocratic Pakistan in the current dispute over Kashmir, I feel the US needs to, at least for the time being, continue to support the current unelected Pakistani leadership. They have proven themselves to be allies in the War on Terror, at least the part of it that directly effects US interests. To turn our backs on them so quickly could result in a nightmare resurfacing in Afghanistan, and would do nothing to ease the current tensions which look increasing like they will end in open, possibly nuclear, warfare between India and Pakistan.

The Bush administration should offer some kind of peace plan, not in the unrealistic hope that it will actually bear fruit, but simply to stall for time. When Afghanistan has been sufficiently stabilized, we can then choose our democratic brothers in India over dictatorial Muslims in Pakistan.

Man Alive!

HACKWORTH

HERE.
Mr. Nordlinger

Here :

The mayoral election just concluded in Newark, N.J., was one of the ugliest in memory. It involved the old, entrenched mayor, Sharpe James, and a saner, more moderate upstart, Cory Booker. Both men were black, of course — but some of the most vicious racial politics in this country are intra-black politics. The likes of Sharpe James always play “blacker than thou” — and this is a matter of mouth and posturing, not shade.

James derided Cory Booker as “neo-black” (which is cute, I grant you). The James campaign slogan was “The Real Deal” — everyone in Newark knew what it meant, trust me. James said that Booker was a mere tool of the Right, and of whites. (Both men, naturally, are Democrats — but Booker is open to such notions as school choice and non-theft in government.) The New York Sun reproduced a cartoon that the James campaign had purveyed: It showed a factory, at which “neo-black politicos” were being made. In succession were Clarence Thomas, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, and the challenger, Cory Booker. Two white men were in the foreground, chomping cigars and grinning. They were labeled “right-wing foundations.” One was saying to the other, “They’re so popular, we can’t produce them fast enough.” The other was saying, “I hear they always sell out.”

James won, of course — but only with 53 percent of the vote, which should give some cause for hope. The entire (white) Democratic establishment in New Jersey was behind him.

On the subject of racial politics — intra-black politics — I remember very well a mayoral race in Detroit. It pitted Dennis Archer, who became mayor, against a woman named Sharon McPhail. Now, McPhail was a very, very light-skinned woman — freckles and all. She probably could have passed. And her entire campaign was geared to the idea that Archer — who was infinitely darker than she — wasn’t “black” enough. She talked constantly of Archer’s (alleged) white support (not that such support, even if it had existed, would’ve mattered a lick in Detroit). I thought this was a stunning example of racial politics: that Sharon McPhail should try to out-black Dennis Archer — and get away with it, really.

And I always suspected, too, that one reason Archer’s predecessor, Coleman Young, was so aggressive, crude, and racist was that, as a light-skinned man (also with freckles), he was always trying to prove his credentials. No one could “out-black” him. Young may have been the most vilely racist man I ever witnessed — although he has some stiff competition.

The Senate and Judges

Great article here.
Slate

With rare criticism of a liberal Democrat.
Bill O'Reilly

Needs a lesson in economics.

He writes, "A few days ago, a New Jersey couple in their early 20s sat down in front of an oncoming Amtrak train and were killed instantly. Authorities say the pair was addicted to heroin and spent thousands of dollars a month on the drug. Shortly before the suicide, the couple had been evicted from their apartment for non-payment of rent. Relatives say both individuals were in despair."

He continues, "So what about the people who sold the heroin to these Americans? What is their responsibility? Some will argue the pushers have no responsibility, that the users make the choice. But that is nonsense. If nobody sold drugs, there would be no drug problem."

Supply and Demand, Bill! Didn't they ever teach this basic principle at Harvard?

If there is a strong enough demand for something, there will always be a supply. The only way to eradicate the supply is to destroy the demand. And, sadly, there is still a strong demand for illegal drugs despite every effort of the government.

Bill goes on, "You may have also heard about little Rilya Wilson, the 4-year-old foster child in Florida who has been missing for 16 months. Rilya's mother is a crack addict. She had not contacted her child in nearly two years. When Rilya turned up missing, that despicable mother reportedly made noise about suing the state of Florida. It turned my stomach."

And then, "So what about the people who sold crack to Rilya's mother? Are they not partially responsible for the abandonment of the little girl?"

Nope. Call me old-fashioned, Bill, but I tend to believe that the welfare of this child is the responsibility of the mother of this child, not someone who engaged in a business transaction with the mother. If Joe Blow is a drunk and runs over a little girl in the street, who is responsible, Joe or the guy at the 7-11 who sold Joe that six-pack of Bud?

Look, drugs are bad. But as a society, we have to decide which is worse : People who provide a product to others who willingly spend their own money for the personal use of that product, or the State tossing all these folks in prison with hard-core murderers and rapists?



Neal Boortz

A great line here :

[Bill] Clinton: "He hasn't told me yet whether he's [Al Gore] going to run. If he does, of course, at the outset he would be the front-runner. But I think he recognizes that under these circumstances, like every other Democrat, he'll have to make his case; but obviously he's got a lot of friends around America and a lot of people that know we won the popular vote last time and a lot of people think we won the vote in Florida last time. I'm one of them."

Yeah, Slick Willie. And there are a lot of people who think that you're a rapist. I'm one of them.

Great Letter

From National Review Online's "The Corner" :

An American living in Europe writes to NRO : "The one thing that really strikes me about the murder of Pim Fortuyn is the pictures they have been showing on all the news channels. The one where he is having food thrown at him at a press conference. Whatever happened to those folks? Were they arrested? Was anything done to them? How can the Dutch Left be so shocked by the violent death of a politician when they ignored (or cheered) the first steps of leaving debate and argument behind? ... You cannot imagine what it is like here. Le Pen inspires marches, not debate (Chirac wouldn't allow that to happen). Berlusconi's labour advisor is himself gunned down. Has the left become so bankrupt that they cannot even enter the arena of ideas? After all, Le Pen isn't that hard to argue with, is he? The sad thing is, what is the life of politics in Europe is the life of academia in the United States. How long before our politics degrades to this level?"
From Andrew Sullivan

On the Eurocratic big-wig, Chris Patten :

He brings up the issue of private American financial support for the IRA. He's right that such support is vile. But the American government never sent millions of dollars direct to the IRA to foment terrorism against Britain. Yet the EU funnels vast sums to Yassir Arafat's terrorist organizations, with no checks, no standards, no accountability. That money is used to kill Jews. And Chris Patten helps dispense it. And that's largely all you need to know.

It's nice to see that our ex-president plans to conduct himself with the same level of dignity he maintained while in office.

A Kook Opines On Smallpox

Okay, so Hackworth is a kook. So what? He still brings up some good points.

A smallpox attack could kill millions, maim tens of millions, and crush our current economic recovery. The fallout from such an attack would likely be the use of nuclear weapons by the US against the assumed perpetrators, and all the ensuing global instability that would bring.

If our government is unwilling to immunize our citizens against such an attack because of the potential side-effects for a few, then how can we even bother to pretend that our nation's security is of the highest concern to our elected leaders?

Interesting column here.

I find myself somewhere in the middle. I dislike both Eurocrats and Le Pen about equally. It seems as if the Europeans have no great leaders among them. Which, of course, is all the more reason to ignore them.

For Pam?

Part of a column :

Revealing exchange with an INS employee at my oath ceremony last week. There were 2,000 of us in a huge hall at the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. They seated us by blocks, and were keeping track of who sat where, so they could hand out the naturalization certificates expeditiously. "A miracle of organization." I remarked to the INS man seating us. "Nah," he said, "it's all f****d up. Typical INS!" Derb: "Oh, come now, let's show a little institutional self-esteem." He: "You must be joking." Derb: "What, is morale bad, then?" He: "You can't imagine. Hey, I'm looking for another job." At times like this you realize that these government bureaucracies, for all their waste and follies, and for all we — especially we on the Right — love to scoff at them and criticize them, are staffed with ordinary people with the ordinary person's need to feel useful and valued. If that fellow was right, and morale at the INS is deep in the pits, that cannot be good for America.

Brief Movie Reviews

Watched "Angela's Ashes" last night on video. Very long, but worth watching. 4 stars out of 5.

Also saw "The Green Mile" again the other night. As above, very long but worth watching. 3.5 stars out of 5.

Why the half-star difference? "The Green Mile", having seen it several times now, seems at points to be somewhat contrived. "Angela's Ashes", being a memoir, neccessarily rings realistic. Also, Tom Hanks' face, after watching extreme close-ups of it for around three hours, has a tendency to morph into something disturbingly pig-like. Hence it loses half a star.

Amazing

Quote of the Day

The Afghanistan theater has been the first one, but it won't be the last. It is a place where you are setting an example for how this battle has to be conducted, and there's no question but that Afghanistan is indeed a proving ground.

It's a momentous time. You have a momentous mission. You have been commissioned by history to play a key part. It's dangerous; there's no question. It's difficult and the American people know it and the people of the coalition countries know it. They know it because they see it on television. They know it because they see some of your comrades coming home dead and wounded.

The coalition, this coalition, stands on the front line between freedom and fear. You stand against an evil that cannot be appeased, it must not be ignored, and it certainly must be defeated.

You've done a magnificent job, each of you, and I am proud and I am grateful and I know that your families are proud and grateful. They worry about you. And they too sacrifice.

And when this war is won, and it will be won, you will be able to say that I fought with the coalition in Afghanistan against terrorism and you'll be remembered for it.

I highly recommend Wolfgang Puck's line of soups. Good stuff. I mean, how can anyone dislike a guy with "gang-puck" in his name? Though, I tend to stay away from his cream-based products...
European Statistics

Here's a quote from Economist.com :

"Despite his renegade status, Mr Le Pen came second with 16.9% of the vote in the first round, not far behind Mr Chirac, who only managed to win 19.9%, and comfortably ahead of Mr Jospin, who received just 16.2%."

Huh? Being behind by three full percentage points is "not far behind", but beating someone by 0.7% is indicative of being "comfortably ahead"? Is this metric or something?
PISTONS WIN!

Hell, yeah. It's 2-0, headed to Canada. Pack your sweater.
