A recommendation

Tempus 42 recommended I see whatever I could of the Flight of the Conchords. Be damned if he wasn't right on target.

I happen to appreciate many things from New Zealand - this bunch (Bret, Jemaine and Murray) just happens to be the latest. If the idea of "New Zealand's #4 folk novelty band" moving to New York to try and make it big appeals to your sense of humor - check it out.

Oh, and they have some of their music on 2 different CDs too...

I guess it really is the WORLD WIDE Web


When you look at your last 100 visitors and see Mongolia, Nepal, Australia, India....Europe, the Middle East, Scandinavia, Britain, North America... wow. I hope they weren't all spammers, heh.

Leadership







After two tours in Afghanistan and watching our Soldiers fight and sacrifice all alongside our Afghan partners, now I am told that that we really have no strategy from my Commander's administration. Listen to the General you appointed last spring. Give your Leaders in the Field and the Afghans we have promised to help what they need.
Watch this video of Krauthammer discussing the lack of real interest from the White House for anything besides Letterman at this moment

Never Again or "Service and Rememberance"?

I heard a brief soundbite of the President proclaiming today the first "National Day of Service and Rememberance" for today. The idea appears to be to catch the coming together spirit and harness it for ... something good, I guess.

I am sure some are quite angry that this day is appearing to be co-opted to turn into something other than what (especially the families of those who died that day) it has been. I think this, unintentionally dilutes the real meaning of 9-11-01.

I think it should be more about "Never Again".
