On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, 1918 – World War I ended – and the 20th century world was born. We have yet to see the true war to end all wars, but I guess we can still hope for true peace. Salute the veterans.
God, I really have to stop reading the political stuff. U.S. Senator Arlen Specter has some baggage to deal with before he can be named the new judiciary committee chair – liberals recall his digging at Prof. Anita Hill during the Clarence Thomas confirmation process; the conservatives haven’t forgiven him for not backing Robert Bork. And, reading the articles about him, I had no idea that he had even more baggage – a Democrat in his youth, and a bright lawyer (and we all know how popular lawyers are these days …). Sigh.
And, Ashcroft as Attorney General is moving on (applause) – but that leaves us with what – well, we’ll see, I guess.
Oh, and of course, NYS politics is insane – if, nationally, the Democratic party is feeling lost in the wilderness – the NYS Republicans really feel lost. (it doesn’t help that the state legislature is dysfunctional – I’d have linked to an article about this topic, but they’re all sad and depressing).
Well, it’ll be back to work tomorrow – so looking forward to seeing how “Star Trek: Enterprise” will end the 3-episode arc – I don’t say that very often of this series in awhile too…
