Saudi Arabia rebuffs Bush on oil output
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - The White House said Friday that Saudi Arabia's leaders are making clear they see no reason to increase oil production until customers demand it.In your face, infidel!
President Bush was in the oil-rich country to appeal to King Abdullah for greater production to help halt rising gas prices in the United States.
But his national security adviser, Stephen Hadley, said Saudi officials stuck to their position that they already are meeting demand.
Does anyone remember when his dad went begging to the Japanese to please stop making cars people actually wanted to buy? Doesn't he understand how pathetic it makes us look?
Good afternoon, friends. Is pleasant, sunny, above 70 degrees for a change. My neighbor is making a 2nd story koi pond on an unused corner of his roof (he's an architect, so presumably knows what he's doing). And lawn is mowed -- sucked it up and had someone do it for me, which will buy me a little time.
If you have the chance, I have work in the annual (30th, I think) Wilmette Public Library juried show that opens tonight, 6-8, or maybe 5:30 to 8:30 (lost my info sheet, don't know if there's a website). Hope it's a good show this year -- there were 2 kickass jurors (John Minkoff and Frances Vail -- didn't recognize name of the 3rd).
Game progress: Forward walkcycle is now satisfactory -- not good but ok. Maybe will (finally) get an animated gif up later).
