For the Record

WIIIAI caught these three items that are worth passing on:

Achmad Chalabi’s head of public relations is shot to death, which to my mind speaks very poorly about his abilities in the public relations field. Just saying. (note: had to substitute an alternate link)...

Astonishingly, Haitians are not registering to vote. Only one-fifth have so far, and the deadline is next week. The International Crisis Group is blaming poor security, as opposed to the fact that the last democratically elected president was bundled onto a plane by American Marines, more or less at gun point, and sent into exile. Makes the whole voting thing seem kinda pointless.

As always, crises in Haiti, as often as not manufactured by the Northern colossus, are not merely ignored, but swept under the rug.

And, finally, to begin today, WIIIAI links to Lee Tyler's updated Oscar Wilde. Sample:

There are two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is thinking about why one wanted what one got.

Back in a's been another busy day over here.
