ESPN.com - NFL - Lions' Porcher: Emmitt should be like Barry:
let's hope he remembers this after the season.
"ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit defensive end Robert Porcher thinks Emmitt Smith made a mistake by not retiring after last season.
'I think he's overstayed his welcome,' Porcher said. 'It doesn't make me feel sad. That's the problem most players have. Most players, especially great players, have a hard time saying 'Goodbye.' Most of us have been doing this since we were little kids.'"
i don't get it...why would i want to pay $.99 per song, or almost pay the price of a cd with no album art. so riaa lawyers won't sue me?
i think a much lower price needs to be managed to make this work, like ten cents a song, flat. no album discount, just 10 cents a song. that would be worth not stealing it.

I love it... this came from Gdub's blog. Where you can find such gems as, Afganistan is going OK! Saddam had wmd programs, really! My personal favorite came from an article in the Wall Street Journal:
"We know from other sources that Iraq also had route-mapping software that covered U.S. territory."
OK...so they purchased StreetMap, and now Iraqi's will know how to get from the Lincoln National Monument to the Capital building with the shortest most effecient route. Scoundrels! I also heard, from sources close to the situation, that they had extensive connections to the internet where they accessed high resolution imagery from across the United States.

al jazeera is pissed
al jazeera will not be broadcast into iraq.
ok, so did he learn nothing from raising his kids? what happens when you deny something desirable from a teenager? they want it even more, and the more the parent fights, the more it becomes about just getting it. not the joy having what is desirable, but just proof that it can be done.
besides if the occupying forces were doing a bang up job, any criticism would fall on deaf ears...we're not doing a "bang-up" job...so the criticism is warranted.
we haven't even talked about the whole censorship/free press issues...

the mind of the elephant
the republican party has such a "not in my backyard mentallity". we all need to sacrifice for the war on terrorism, except halliburton and the 1% who got the tax cut. we believe in fair and open markets, except agriculture and steel, those need subsidies, oh yeah, fair and open in iraq, well open to halliburton. that president lied about his sex life; our president was simply misinformed when he passed along that information in state of the union!
i have been joking that the state medicaid decided to cover our latest pregnancy because the official story we told our parents is it was "immaculately conceived". (three kids, three years, you start to wonder if something isn't funny) see if your the son/daughter of god the republicans will have no problem having the state pay for it.
here's another example of what's good for the goose, isn't for the gander.
"With apologies to Atrios, I'm stealing this post of his. It needs to be trumpeted throughout all corners of the blogosphere (and beyond) -- kos.
This is just unbelievable:
Speaking of contracting out, an administration move to privatize air traffic control at 69 airports has sparked opposition from labor groups, which contend it would compromise safety.
The administration had proposed 71 airports, but House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Don Young (R-Alaska), who supports the effort, got someone to strike the two Alaska airports on the list.
Young, on an Alaska cable TV show a week ago, acknowledged the move generated some heat.
'Of course the criticism of myself,' he said, 'is that I exempted the state of Alaska.' But there were ample reasons for that, he said, ticking off a number of them.
'Lastly,' Young said, 'my hotel room is on the top floor of the Sheraton, and the airplanes take right off towards my hotel room. Every morning I look out and there's one coming right at me. It's an interesting experience and I want to make sure everything is done right in that field.'"
Venezuela has proof Washington was behind failed coup, general - Independent Media TV: "Army Gen. Melvin Lopez, secretary of Venezuela's National Defence Council, said Tuesday 'proof exists' the U.S. administration was involved in the mid-April putsch. He declined to give further details. 'We have the evidence,' Lopez said during an interview broadcast by Venezuela's state-run television channel. "
