* Lou Dobbs paraphrase - "the only people who are impressed with Kerry's military service are those who haven't served" ... and what Lou says differentiates Kerry & Bush, and he is not overly impressed with either!
* Al-Sadr not moving out fast enough? ... strike may begin within hours
* Drilling to move forward in Alaska's waters ... need more domestic oil!

* Al-Jazeera to have a press-box at the RNC
*Olympics: US Women = set record in 800m Freestyle
* SCO vs World - IBM strikes back
* Democrats pulling no punches against Nader ... dirty pool, old man.
* Dems lie about Bush and this URL alone says enough :) (a little gratuitous in their presentation, but like I said - I like the URL) ... to be fair, it looks like some of the SBVFT people may not be 100% honest either

Interesting:

* The least-active SourceForge projects
* The letter 'K' offered to Iraq
*TRUE: German men told not to pee standing ... does that make them females, gay or just dumb? (not that there is anything wrong with any of those options)
* I bet you don't expect THIS

"For the people in government, rather than the people who pester it, Washington is an early-rising, hard-working city. It is a popular delusion that the government wastes vast amounts of money through inefficiency and sloth. Enormous effort and elaborate planning are required to waste this much money."
-P.J. O'Rourke
