debris sandwich to go

Have you ever wondered what the dress requirements are for women attending Jerry Fallwells university? Well, Dave Miller just wrote in with the answer.

Speaking of insane religious extremists and how they feel compelled to dictate womens fashion, it looks like fundamentalists Shiites are gaining ground in Iraq.

Meanwhile, Paul Krugman keeps pushing the issue that we were deceived into war, even though most journalists, and most Americans, dont seem to care. Heres a clip:

After all, suppose that a politician or a journalist admits to himself that Mr. Bush bamboozled the nation into war. Well, launching a war on false pretenses is, to say the least, a breach of trust. So if you admit to yourself that such a thing happened, you have a moral obligation to demand accountability and to do so in the face not only of a powerful, ruthless political machine but in the face of a country not yet ready to believe that its leaders have exploited 9/11 for political gain. It’s a scary prospect.

There are some other skeptics out there though. Molly Ivins is questioning what she sees as the Iraqi gold rush. Heres a great quote:

So where’s a president like Franklin D. Roosevelt when we need him? “I don’t want to see a single war millionaire created in the United States as a result of this world disaster,” he said during World War II.

Thats one of the things that bothers me the most about the current situation in Iraq. People are getting rich. What makes it event worse is that some of the companies participating in the rebuilding operate offshore tax shelters to lessen the amount they pay to the US government (creating a situation where the middle class has to pick up the slack). Its absolutely reprehensible.

OK, I really need to pack now.

Ill see you in New York.

If I should die either on the plane this afternoon, or in some kind of chemical, biological or nuclear attack, please know that I love you all and will be haunting you until your last day on Earth.
