what donald rumsfeld doesn't want you to see...
that's not just hyperbole. the pentagon actually banned soldiers from viewing this site. i particularly like the news ticker on the left. there's a lot of good iraq news on there that you won't see in your friendly local paper.

the war ain't even close to over....
unfortunately, it's looking more and more like the iraq war is turning into the classic guerilla war. this article has experts predicting at least 10 years of u.s. occupation of iraq. the worse news is that the iraqi guerillas/insurgents/terrorists/criminals/etc. really don't have to win. they just have to not lose and wait until we leave.

the myths of swing voters...
if you never read another article about voting and politics, make this your last. wow, i can't remember another story that affected the way i look at politics the way that this one did. basically, democracy is fucked.

changes comin' every day...
i finally got around to spiffying this place up a bit. the old look was, admittedly, just awful awful. hopefully the pub is now a bit easier on the eyes.
i got rid of the tagboard that had been on the right-hand column. you can now post a reply to each blog posting. peace out.

more and more good good news...
my fiancee dionne has had a good september already. she has been appointed as an adjunct professor at Bristol Community College in Massachusetts. She's teaching a course in basic writing, and I'm sure she'll find a way to incorporate david sedaris into the curriculum.
another recent development is that she will be presenting her writing at the writing by degrees conference at suny-binghamton next month. here's the low-down on that whole shindig.
