News: 1000
*We are officially up to 1000 US deaths in Iraq ... we should all observe a moment of silence, and offer our prayers and condolences to the friends and family of all of those lost.
* Frances damage total so far $3B ... much less than the $5-25B still being forecast by some ... we'll see who is right. And, Ivan is coming!
* Bad Day for US Marines & Army ... 7 & 5 down, respectively. And al-Sadr is still causing havoc, killing Americans
* Kerry tells terrorists how to win ... just wait 4 years.
* Clinton is OK ... well, physically.
* Oil hovering around $43/barrel ... but may be going up soon?
* Some amusing allegations about Bush ... mostly repeats of former allegations, mostly drug related, and all took place 25+ years ago (if ever).
* Tiger now #2, Vijay takes the lead ... Mickelson still #2 in the $$ rankings (short by about $2M)
* Haliburton may decide not to rebid ... to many individual contracts make it not worth the effort. We'll see.

Interesting:
*Flip-Flop - Kerry now says he would have done everything differently in Iraq ... oh yeah, and he supports gun owner's rights (something he is correct on, for once and for now(until his next change in opinion?)). Oh so sorry - he is not for gun owners' rights, he just owns guns! So clear. By the way, he may be illegally in possession of one now!

* Comments on Kerry's campaign slogan(s) and some of his worse mis-steps as a congressman

* Bush gets Bounced
* WalMart + Huge Shopping Carts = Safety
* Bass Boat Vets for Truth
* Israel plays go fish ... this site is great because they take a real news article, print it ... and then add just a pinch of satire (without disturbing the newsy goodness)
* Bush Promises “No Negative Advertising Against John Edwards and His Fatass Wife
