Frank Rich: savage, but always entertaining.

He always manages to raise a smile.

I didn't find that article entertaining at all, but rather horrifying and depressing... here's a pertinent quote:

"After Katrina, the FEMA Web site directing charitable contributions prominently listed Operation Blessing, a Pat Robertson kitty that, according to I.R.S. documents obtained by ABC News, has given more than half of its yearly cash donations to Mr. Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network."

One must cultivate a certain Olympian detachment . . .

As that great philosopher, David Lee Roth, once said, "You can't let the little shit get you down. And it's all little shit."

Olympian detachment might not be possible until I finally move out of this trainwreck of a country. I might be able to laugh at this kind of thing over coffee and a joint in an Amsterdam coffee shop, for instance.

A website I frequent about as often as I do this blog has a lot of interesting articles posted on it almost daily, mostly political in nature--though there are artistic commentaries and the like as well. It's a publishing company founded and run by Viggo Mortensen, called Perceval Press. It's not my style to advertise, but a lot of the articles here are written by citizens of other countries. I've been finding it pretty interesting to poke my head out to the other side of the fence every once in a while to see what other people think about America and the Bush Administration.

A lot of them seem to feel the same way a lot of us do. Pretty sad.

[EDIT: Doh! Here's the website: http://www.percevalpress.com/ ]

Wow, this "timeline" of the Katrina disaster truly highlights the incompetence and ineptitude of the Bush administration. That image of Bush eating cake with McCain is going to stay with me for a long, long time.

Read it and weep.

Check out calcium mineral and mineral build up by flipping on the two cooking area kitchen sink along with the bath tub. In the event the volume of normal water is low, it may be time to replace piping due to deposit of calcium mineral as well as other minerals. Look into the h2o tension and think about contacting a specialist to handle the whole work. [url=http://www.xxxw12woo.info]gitutyyt[/url]
