Cameron has volunteered to go down to the Gulf of Mexico and consult. I love it
when a guy who's an expert in fake disasters gets involved. And if that doesn't
work, they're going to contact Superman and he's going to weld the pipe with his
X-ray vision." –David Letterman

Public support for the war in Afghanistan will evaporate unless the nations leading the fight against insurgents can show by the end of this year that the eight-year war is not locked in stalemate, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Wednesday.
What is your take on their ongoing conflict and what Helen Thomas said and her job loss resulting from her comments?
I think the Israel/Palestine conflict is proof positive that an eye for an eye does not work.
They need a Renaissance.
Heaven forbid that 89 year old journalist Helen Thomas would have an opinion. With that said, let the same happen to the entire Fox News staff whenever they express an opinion.

Mainstream Republican candidate Damon Dunn, who got into that race earlier and raised seven times as much money, carried every county and won more than 1 million votes; Taitz will end up with around 370,000 votes.

though he's not stepping down, Tony Hayward is handing over responsibility to
the cleanup to an American named Bob Dudley. There's a name that gives me
confidence. It sounds like a sitcom character who's always messing everything
up." –Jimmy Fallon
Fox Reporter Jailed
A local Fox
television reporter who's been blogging regularly on the Gulf oil spill made a
bit of his own news yesterday.
George Franco, a reporter with Fox affiliate WAGA-TV in Atlanta, was charged with battery following an alleged altercation with a BP clean-up worker...says the Sheriff's spokeswoman, "Franco argued with the contractor, shoved the contractor and started grabbing him." The scuffle didn't end there. After Mitchell asked Franco to leave a few more times, the 52-year-old reporter "grabbed Mitchell's arm spinning him around,"

Thank You Note
Dear Archie, Thank you so much for taking the time to mail me Dan Brown's latest book, The Lost Symbol. I loved it. I love art history, especially the architecture of the High Renaissance. The art of the Masons really does have a timeless feel. Brown's descriptions of the "Masonry" throughout the US Capitol was not only a brilliant visual but quite accurate. I would love to see the sunrise light hit the caplet of the Washington monument.
Maybe the enlightenment of man isn't that far off?

Many Thanks Archie, Lisa
I hope you had a good time today
