invasions get easier

Oh dear. I had no idea of our big plans for world domination.

...he [Lawrence Di Rita, a special assistant to Rumsfeld] and other Pentagon officials said, they are studying the lessons of Iraq closely -- to ensure that the next U.S. takeover of a foreign country goes more smoothly.

"We're going to get better over time," promised Lawrence Di Rita, a special assistant to Rumsfeld.

"We've always thought of post-hostilities as a phase" distinct from combat, he said. "The future of war is that these things are going to be much more of a continuum....

"This is the future for the world we're in at the moment," he said.

"We'll get better as we do it more often."

I think we should stop telling George W. that we were wrong to go to war. Dammit, he's going to prove to us that imminent terrorism is a threat if he has to hijack that airplane himself.

Let's just let him think we're okay with him--then in the election, we pull the one-two switch. Then he won't be so hell-bent on being heard about how right he is.

When did it become acceptable to display graphic death photos? I'm pretty sure it's still not. I'm pretty sure that it is not okay to show two men, hated or no, at the ending seconds of their life, assaulted and bloody.

But they're our enemies, you say. But we hate them, you say. But they tortured and killed thousands, you say.

I agree that their behavior was awful, despicable, intolerable. However, I remain that it is not okay to release those photos.

My friend was all set to work with a very famous woman in a very famous movie, all contingent on relatively parallel heights. My friend is 5'10". The woman in question is 5'9". It was all ready to go.

Then my friend stood next to the woman in question to discover that the woman in question is actually 5'6".

While an upset that said friend did not secure illustrious job, there is a lesson to be learned.

You can take a beautiful woman, give her an amazing voice, a supportive family, a fabulous body, endless wealth--but wait. She wishes she was taller.

We all want something.

Re: My letter to the drunk guy who harrassed me as I was walking past the Church nightclub's parking lot last week.

I posted my letter on Craig's List. One reader took offense at my letter. So much, in fact, that he thought a threatening, degrading letter to me was an appropriate response to his offense. Sadly, this is an actual reaction to a woman asserting herself in the 21st century.

Begin message:

too bad he didnt just run your dumb self-absorbed 'ooh - as witty as can be' ass over.

next time keep your stupid shit to yourself, bitch. or better yet - bring it, you versus the car - i bet that make CL best of, and it wont be because people cant believe how stupid you are so they hit the button to show all.

It's going to get worse before it gets better.

Jeez, just stop eating so much, America. Must everything be handed to us?

Gyms begin making house calls to avoid litigation from lazy gym members who have a hard time waking up in the morning.
