I always think of WSB as




but I'll write the station also.

I'm seeing a pattern

of jokes that are not really funny (and that aren't aren't actually jokes). You can tell in almost every instance that Romney is used to be surrounded by sycophants who desperately attempt to follow every weak lead that he provides. He is the opposite of the personality that should be running a large company, much less in charge of a nation.

I overheard a phone conversation

between a two soldiers the other day, in the parking lot of a small gym where my child has Tae Kwon Do lessons. I wasn't trying to eavesdrop (in fact I had moved away from him to give him some personal space), but he was talking rather loud on his phone. He was talking about being in the service for 12 years now and how the VA hospital folks had cancelled 14 appointments in row that he had made, without any real reason. He said no one cares when you return from deployment, no support. "All I have to show for it is getting shot twice, and being almost blind in one eye due to a IED." He then spoke of another friend of his who had survived an explosion, but when he was operated on, the military surgeons 'messed up' and now his friend is unable to walk for the rest of his life.

I wanted to say something to him, but I knew it wasn't the right time (or any of my business) He was angry and sad. After hearing him talk, so was I.

The minute I heard the news of this attack

I immediately thought of Cheney (who suddenly appeared just the other day) and Rove.

What I also find curious is how the Embassy's security was penetrated right at the anniversary of 9/11. Wouldn't it be Standard Operating Procedure to beef up security at US Embassies around this date, especially in volatile regions?

I need to find more info about what actually transpired there. Is that info out there yet?
