Blame Laid for De-Plumed Plame, er, huh?

Baldilocks summarizes in perfectly understood words the whole debacle.

She mentions Mr. Goldstein, whose source, the Dolphin in the Peacoat, I find enigmatically interesting.

Oh, and Ace is quoted, too.

So, this reveals that I haven't, indeed, been reading The Aeneid, but you know what? I can't stand The Aeneid anyway. It's nothing but plagiarism with a slightly varied theme. Booooorrrrring!

Do you hear that?

It's the sound of my retching every time one of the famed über-liberal senators tries to trap John Roberts in a game of semantics.

Joie de vivre

Several things to come from the French that I greatly appreciate:

1. Kissing
2. Fashion
3. Amélie
4. Crème Brulée (O.K. so technically, this isn't just the French, but stop being so particular).

Cooperation Makes it Happen: The Iraqi Election

The upcoming Iraqi elections have been the talk of the 'sphere and of NPR, Fox, and every other news organization. I have been listening and thinking.

For a government to be democratic the people must be accurately represented. In the United States, we are represented by number, but I wonder if it would be in the best interest of the Iraqi people to be represented by region according to their branch of Islam. Neither side seems willing to listen or to consider the other as valid. Why not divide up the country, Shi'ites, Sunni's, and Kurds each having their own provinces and given the amount of land according to the number of their population. Then each province could hold a representative election and presidential election placing in office whom they respect, will listen to, and follow. I just have this feeling that the way it is set up now isn't truly representative and will be viewed as a puppet government and thus rendered ineffective and disrespected by the majority of the Iraqi people.

I will gladly welcome, read, and consider any comments on the topic, as well.
