Believe it or not, I found this on the White House website, as a header for some press releases and such from 2002. Amazing, huh? I guess they figured it meant that the Iraqi's were in denial and deceptive, but we know now that it was Bush and co.'s deception and denial that was the real deal here.
This makes some sense. I'm a little perplexed that I'm almost deranged, and dissapointed that I'm not enough of a love machine. Oh well…
This is staggering. Bush has borrowed more money than all 42 other presidents before him combined. Presidents one through 42 borrowed $1.01 Trillion dollars total from foreign banks and governments. #43 has borrowed $1.05 trillion. Guess who is going to be paying that bill? Not the wealthy, you can bet.
I haven't yet blogged on the Avian Flu issue because I've been pretty unsure about it, even with my scientific training. On one hand, there definitely seems to be some evidence, and reasonable suggestions that avian flu is a possible real danger to the world. On the other hand, it's not a danger yet, and it is very hard to tell whether or not it will become one.
Here's what I know so far:
Being from the East coast, I didn't realize that in this part of the country, Diá de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a holiday that is celebrated by lots of people on November 1 and 2nd, in conjunction with Halloween, All Saints day (today) and All Souls Day (tomorrow). It is a pleasant celebration and rememberance. People bake bread and make sweets in the shapes of skulls and bones.
