10/25/04: What a Difference a Day Makes
Link: http://ttagaris.dailykos.com/storyonly/2005/7/13/121553...

Snip: <On the last play from scrimmage in the 3rd quarter, Cincinnati
Bengals running back Rudi Johnson took the handoff from Carson
Palmer and scampered 36 yards to the end zone giving the team a
comfortable 20-10 lead. The Bengals would not look back, presumably
to the delight of Jean Schmidt and the 65,806 fans at Paul Brown
Stadium watching Cincinnati's first Monday Night Football game at
home in a decade a half.

In Iraq, Marine Corps Major Paul Hackett and the men in his unit
were en route by military transport helicopter from Ramadi to
Fallujah where they served as gatekeepers for supplies coming in and
out of the city notorious for some of the worst violence seen in the
war.

October 25, 2004 was a defining day in the lives of the two
candidates running for election in Ohio's 2nd Congressional
District. For Major Paul Hackett, the Democratic candidate in the
special election, the day began his critical work in stopping any
untoward supplies from entering the city, keeping the military and
Iraqi civillians from further harms way.

For Jean Schmidt, the Republican candidate, her evening about town
is now the focus of a Ohio ethics investigation for her failure to
disclose gifts accepted from a global bio-tech lobbyist.

The evening started out nice enough for Representative Jean Schmidt.
She and several Ohio Republican lawmakers, along with a Columbus
lobbyist, ate a nice dinner at Nicola's Ristorante in Cincinnati.
The food and drink was paid for by a representative from Chrion, a
company whose dirty flu vaccine was banned by the British
government. By all accounts, Nicola's is a tremendous restaurant
with wonderful food and atmosphere: >

1. I have a new personal policy
If I vote for a thread for the greatest page, I should also reply to it to keep it kicked. This thread right now has 2 votes and 0 replies. I found it floundering on the third or fourth page of GD because of no responses. I hardly ever get a chance to look down to the third or fourth page and would normally have missed this useful story.

6. It's a great B-day - you get to have a costume party
and one out of every 3-4 you get an extra hour because the clocks 'fall back'.

PS - I was born at the "2nd 2:00 DST"... it's on my birth certificate! Kinda cool.
