2. I'm so anxious about the weekend.
I hope it's not as bloody as I fear it will be. :-(

4. Using a pair of pliers, I'd like to take his lower thin Frank Burns lip
and pull it up over his ugly smirky empty head.

7. There's something going on with the helicopters....
If anyone is interested, there are some threads floating around about Lockheed Martin and its defective helicopters. At this point, something is definitely happening.

It's hard to tell, because the information we get from Iraq could be tainted. We don't know if it went down due to enemy fire or sabotage (from Iraqi employees on the base).

So far, we've lost 33 helicopters at a cost of - what? $50 million apiece? Just recently, they seem to be going down more often.

8. It would not be a surprise if maintenance/logistics failures occurred.
It's been a long hard war.
