Wikipedia on Petraeus: "His father was a canabis farmer..." No kidding, nice "edit."

OK, so I have a "self delete" and I'm a little tired, getting up early, etc.

This is a real sentence in Wiki:

Early years

David Petraeus was born in 1952 to Dutch American parents. His father, Sixtus, was a cannabis farmer who had emigrated to the United States from the Netherlands after World War II. He grew up in Cornwall on Hudson, New York, and graduated from Cornwall Central High School in 1970.

I've got a PDF too and my dog is also a witness to the accuracy of this symbolic event.



This is a signal that we're about to "kick back" and "chill" in our foreign policy. No more
pre-emptive attacks, no more chest thumping. We're going to eat a lot chocolate, listen to
some good music, and chill. It's a sign, so to speak ;)

1. I take it to mean...
...that, if you believe the surge is working and Bush's Iraq policy is a success, you must have been inhaling something since childhood!

2. It's been changed back to "his father was a sea captain..."
Of course, that's NOT to say he didn't have a grow light in his cabin. ;)

5. Well would you look at this!

"Washington also grew hemp (cannabis), like many people of his time. Hemp was considered an important crop and widely used as a source for paper, cloth, rope, ship sails and for many other uses. Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere, wrote Washington in 1794. His whiskey distillery and hemp acreage might remind us that Washington was a down-to-Earth human being, as well as a warrior, statesman and American patriot." 2007 http://tinyurl.com/37s8xg

One thing we know for sure, Washington did not have a grow light ;)
