That's cool. Your blog is different. It's not the usual "look what I did today" routine. Keep it up.

Don't believe everything you hear on CNN or ABC... a majority of Americans do not believe Rumsfeld should resign, and Bush was just re-elected wasn't he? This is a great Blog with a lot of good info, but the media is out of control and cannot be trusted. And the Guardian is evil! I love America, and especially after coming over to the middle east and seeing the way people disrespect life here. No country is perfect, but I have had a good life and law and order is better than chaos and destruction. I hope Kuwait takes a turn for the better, police start enforcing laws, people become more civilized, and Kuwaitis someday understand that everyone is equal and having oil and money does not make you any better than your Filipino waitress or Indian laborer fixing your building.

Take care.
