I have been slack...in so many ways. Posting, responding to comments...sorry...and it's not just because I am practicing for the new law...akh the new law...There is no business like monkey business, and there are no monkeys like ours...Could we get them in these getups and let them find somewhere far away for them to trash and degrade...Because there is so little left to love here...especially when yellow sky days like these dim that much more of it. The plants on the windowsill are roasted and crispy, and no amount of water will salvage them...So that's one less thing that depends on me being here...But I stay I stay...for a little longer.

In news from other failed states... Christie Whitman got a belated orchestra of hisses and boos at a hearing about poisoned air at ground zero... back in the first weeks of the cleanup she said "I am glad to reassure the people of New York and Washington, D.C. that their air is safe to breath and their water is safe to drink" (EPA) ... except, well... Lots of people knew it wasn't and said so...Medical Aftershocks December 2001.. And the EPA seems to have known that "some of the World Trade Center dust was as caustic as drain cleaner, but that neither the EPA nor FEMA, both of which were informed of the results, ever released the findings" (Fair) And it gets creepier... if you can imagine that.

Venezuela is preparing to defend itself againt a US invasion...I guess Chavez recognises it as the new American pastime...

Holy Smokes!

'In the days and weeks following the collapse of the World Trade Center, the White House pressured the Environmental Protection Agency not to warn the public about the potential health effects and to not issue guidelines for the public about cleaning apartments and offices.'

That's appalling. What incredible gall. That's corruption to the max.
