Quiet night thoughts

Chuang qian ming yue guang

Yi shi di shang shuang.

Ju tou wang ming yue,

Di tou si gu xiang.

Before bed bright moon light

Looks like frost on the ground

Lift head to gaze at bright moon

Lower head to dream of home.

We'll Be Waiting

Hope this author misses Powell's for his book tour. Dublin ain't got nothin on PDX. Flip-flops! We'll be throwing our caulks.

This war criminal decided to go to war.

That's my Peeps!

DUBLIN – Protesters hurled shoes and eggs Saturday at former British Prime Minister and Carlyle Group whore Tony Blair who held the first public signing of his memoir amid high security in Ireland's capital. Hundreds more people lined up to have their books autographed — evidence that the divisions left by Blair's decade as British leader have yet to heal.

Blair's new book, "A Journey," has angered opponents of his policies, especially the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

About 200 demonstrators chanted that Blair had "blood on his hands" as the warmonger and profiteer arrived at a Dublin bookstore. Shoes, eggs and other projectiles were thrown toward Blair as he emerged from a car, but did not hit him. A flip-flop could be seen lying on the roof of a BMW in Blair's motorcade.

I can only hope that Bush gets the same treatment when he goes on book tour, not to mention Cheney. Blair says in the book that he is not sorry for his decision to enter the U.S.-led war, although he has wept for its victims. He is donating all proceeds from the book to a charity for wounded troops. How about the dead ones?

Dominating the News Cycle

Visited His Vorpal Sword today and read this. You should too. I have only read Ben Smith in other people's commentary on the web, and the same for Politico. Sarah Palin's climb to the top of the media whore mountain reminds me of something...
