5MPH?

Important!
* University of Oregon BANS Support Of The Troops ... read the article, react accordingly ... and Malkin adds a thought or two, and a pic worth seeing ... and everyone should say "Thanks!" to our troops!

Quick Thoughts
* To the Acura that was driving 5MPH today - learn to drive, or stay home! Yes, the residential roads were not perfectly clear BUT IF YOU CAN'T GET UP TO A SPEED THAT EXISTS ON MY SPEEDOMETER YOU DON'T BELONG ON THE ROAD! </rant>
* A quick Thank You to al-Zarqawi for telling the world that al-Qaida doesn't just hate the US - they hate freedom, democracy, and everyone who supports them (and "participants in the upcoming election are enemies of Islam"). He's like a recruiting officer for the militaries of the right-thinking nations of the world!
* Congrats to the Patriots and the Eagles ... heading to the 'Bowl! (My Redskins, sadly, will only be going if they buy a ticket :( )
* Anyone have any experience, good or bad, with the VPEP 529 program? I am getting ready to sign up for Riley and would appreciate any input ... ?
* While I am blegging for info : anyone recommend a good brand/model of tires for, say, a Jeep Wrangler? Looking for something ~33" ... keeping in mind that I (obviously) want something reasonably capable off-road, but also that I commute ~60 miles a day so they have to do well on asphalt as well! (I currently have the stock rims, so can't go toooo wide either!)
* A quick shout out to our DC-Metro weatherpeople; thanks for getting everything 100% wrong, thank you for building up the hype/excitement/fear for no reason whatsoever, and thank you for also getting it wrong by MISSING THE (admittedly light) SNOW WE ARE GETTING NOW. You guys are great. Seriously, you deserver a HUGE (negative) RAISE!


News
* Iraq: Car Bomb near Allawi HQ, 2 killed ... condolences to their families! ... and al-Zarqawi claims responsibility ... and al-Zarqawi's car-bomb-mastermind captured?

* Yushchenko + Putin, talks shaky?
* Indonesia +1 Earthquake (6.2)
* Israel is building its wall
* A few thoughts on the upcoming Iraqi elections ... "It doesn't matter to the liberal-socialists if Iraq elections are, in essence, successful; they will never admit it. The liberal-socialists will find some fault with the election to claim them illegitimate. Because if they don't, to admit elections were successful would be to give a victory to George Bush, and that is something they cannot allow. They would much rather have the U.S., the Iraqis, free elections, democracy, and freedom fail than to give credit to George Bush, and for that, they are pathetic."
* Court OKs Dog Sniff During Traffic Stop ... excellent! Found via CHT!
* Terri's Law Tossed ... "right to die" in question ... FWIW I agree with the "right to die"; however I don't believe her husband should be allowed to proceed. There are lots of issues still being questioned around her husband, his motivation, and his possible involvement. (Comments updated 02/14/05-TJ)

* Pentagon runs clandestine intelligence-gathering infrastructure ... is it just me, or does the title of the article sound like it is trying to scare you? Does it really surprise anyone that spying/surveillance is keep a little secret? How effective would it be if it were 'in the open'? And naturally, the Pentagon denies it ... then again, maybe this secret unit is the group that found Saddam?... maybe they can find OBL too?
* ISS crew have their first EVA Wednesday
