"I'm here to tell you that the American people stand with our troops. No matter what you might read in the newspapers, people do appreciate the gift of freedom." U.S. first lady Laura Bush told hundreds of American servicemen and women gathered at an air terminal in Kuwait.



Huh? What was she talking about?


I never thought freedom was a "gift", I thought it was my constitutional right. I'm so glad Laura set me straight!

They could see the showers and the food tent, in the distance, but the president's visit kept them and dozens of other firefighters from moving.

Who's In Charge In California?


As wildfires were charging across Southern California, nearly two dozen water-dropping helicopters and two massive cargo planes sat idly by, grounded by government rules and bureaucracy...It took as long as a day for Navy, Marine and California National Guard helicopters to get clearance early this week, in part because state rules require all firefighting choppers to be accompanied by state forestry "fire spotters" who coordinate water or retardant drops. By the time those spotters arrived, the powerful Santa Ana winds stoking the fires had made it too dangerous to fly.

A day? It would be nice to know just how much those fires grew in that delay. And did anyone call the governor to cut the red tape? My God, California was inept at the start of the fires and sat by while they surged out of control for a
