So, it seems we've taken military action against Libya.

I remember being around 8 or so, playing with a friend in the creek behind my house, and throwing clumps of mud at something or other, pretending we were bombing Libya. We're talking circa 1986. At the time, I had no idea what "bombing Libya" actually meant, just that it was an American thing to do, since everyone was talking about it at the time.

The more things change, the more they...don't change. Eh?

Lent Out

For Lent, I'm giving up any belief in mythological savior figures.

And microwave taquitos.

I'll resume the taquitos after 40 days....

Elections Matter? (!)

Droopy Dog Joe Lieberman has again caught the scent of blood and conquest in his slack jowls. (I'm imagining him as basset stock, whose sense of smell is improved by what they catch in the folds by their nose. No offense to bassets.)

Yes, let's jump right into Libya. We've learned so much about holding together a tribal nation like Iraq that it'll be a cinch. Just cut 'n paste! Why are we not bombing them already?

Given his history, Bush probably would have jumped at the prospect. I applaud Obama's current restraint. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we go to the voting booth....
