You Can't Turn Your Back One Minute (Part XXXIIIa-f)

Aren't they already doing that? If not, what's with the color coding crap?] or interrupting the Nov. 2 presidential election in America, he said.Or they can just not start wars guaranteeing that terrorism is escalating. Or they could listen to advisors who warn them repeatedly that terrorists are actually (not in the imaginary Ashcroft world where beer coolers and poison pens are seen as terrorist tools) planning something big.

Here I am again. No red xs, so Photobucket appears to be back.
A reminder: this is the last day of the quarter, so a good day to contribute to your candidates, if you were planning on it. I suggest using links provided by Future Ambassador Pioneer-Ranger the Honorable Atrios to let them know the blogosphere honors and appreciates him.
More later. Must get car oiled and primped.
