Liberal Indictments

Juan Cole makes some interesting points about the Karl Rove speech at the New York State Conservative Party fundraiser. Particularly of note, is that John Ashcroft prepared several indictments of various accused terrorists, which is one of the things Rove accuses liberals of doing.

Update to remove obscenity. That's not necessary.

Pussy whipped

Over at The Poor Man, there are kittyporn wars going on (as in cat.) Say what you will, it's hilarious.

Clever Blogger

I took a leetttle break from my work and ran across Sue and Not U, which tells a funny story about her suburban Mom developing a progressively more astute understanding of the former Soviet Republics.

"And then I remembered it was Mom I was talking to, and I've now promised that I will not step one toe in Azerbaijan or she's telling Grandma. Last time I crossed Grandma and tried to return to Ukraine and miss Christmas, she shot me with her super psychosomatic Grandma power and gave me mono two days before departure."

Fighting the good fight

Democrats are hanging in there on the nomination of John Bolton. Good for them.

Movie Recommendation

If you can suspend your belief about Adrian Brody and Milla Jovovich being social misfits Dummy is a very sweet movie. Plus it has Ileana Douglas.

Blogroll

See there, over to the right, is a list of other interesting, funny, and important blogs that I read. I'll keep adding to this, if you know of any that I should be reading, please let me know.

Summertime

I went jogging this morning. It was hot and about an hour after I finished I was struck by light headedness and this intense desire to lie down. My kind office mates instructed me to buy some Gatorade, so I'm sipping on that.

I did accomplish some of what I wanted to this weekend. The apartment did get really clean and was was super neat until my normal routine began and my clutter jumped out into the living room. But its clean. Oh, it's clean.

Since I mentioned these isues last week, it's worth mentioning that I have been feeling less like I was in the mourning post-break-up period. I'm starting to wonder what might be next. Even if next ends up being nothing, just being on my own. Someone just invited me to this. I'm not ready for singles mixers yet, and may never be ready for an basketball-themed one. A friend of mine who has been single awhile, just met a new guy and we were talking about it on the phone last night. The falling in love thing can be painful and scary and exciting all at one time. Being by yourself can be nice, because you get to rest. Even though you miss the painful excitement.

The Top Ten List for Today

Human Events Online, The National Conservative Weekly since 1944 has posted the "Ten Most Harmful Books of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century." Predictably, this list includes Marx, Lenin, Engels and Betty Friedan. Number 4 is the Kinsey Report. And John Dewey! Of the decimal system. Because libraries are dangerous.

Already planning the weekend

The two main objectives for the weekend are:
  • To clean the living room and cat box within an inch of their lives.
  • To work on Newyorquina and a companion site that I will explain next week. For real this time. I am going to add links, edit entries, and create content. It's going to be marvelous. Just marvelous. Then I am going to write everyone I know and tell them to read it.
