A few months ago, a commentator named 'Zin' at Harry's Place wanted to try and then hang Bush and various members of his administration as war criminals -- also Henry Kissinger. (See especially the comment posted at 2:53 PM on July 2nd.) The most serious of the crimes he wanted to punish them for -- supposedly helping put Saddam in power in the Ba'athist coups of 1963 and 1968 -- were committed during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations.
Comments are still off, and I'll be out of town most of the weekend, so e-mails received after midnight will not be answered until Sunday evening.
I was listening to some Baltimore radio station or another, mostly for traffic updates, when the sports news came on. It seems that 'our' Ravens beat the Giants yesterday thanks to "six Giant turnovers". I wonder how many other listeners heard that phrase and went into Homer Simpson mode: mmmmm, giant turnovers.
Sorry about the lack of posts. I don't much like blogging without comments, and haven't got around to solving the spam-comment problem so I can turn comments back on. It really annoys me to have to waste precious time dealing with such crap.
