Around The News
Nova, a PBS science program, reported that the super bacterium from the Gulf (aka Iraqi Baci) effecting our troops is similar to Legionella, the cause of infections at a Legion convention in the ‘70s. I found that sort of interesting.
After a couple of thousand US combat deaths, the Iraq Prime Minister doesn’t want to work with us until we tell him exactly when we’re leaving. (I wouldn’t have gone there in the first place.) And, the Prime Mental Case of Iran threatens to blow up US interests if we continue to try to stop his nuke program. I would like to remind him that the USS JFK Battle Group could sail by and reduce the area to a hole in the sand where Iran used to be, in about 15 minutes.
Until Next Time
The universe is ever expanding. And it’s all trying to get away from Church Norris movies.
