    i found this to be a good, informative article. i didn't even know mr. hersh is from chicago. from the article, here's a short list of his accomplishments:
    learned this bit of history between him and some current administration officials:
    and what does mr. hersh say about what's going on these days?

    I've been a fan of his for many years. Thanks for the link, zim.

    By the way, love the new signature. I saw that Bush's insightful response came from an interview in which the questions had to be approved before hand. They had days to prepare and this is the best he can come up with? Now the White House is so mad with RTE that they won't let Laura talk to them. It's hard not to laugh, but it is so pathetic as to be unbelievable.

    i love tautology

    omg that is SO LAME. i can't even say that the reporter took off the kid gloves. this was not a tough interview by any stretch of the imagination. now, if this only mattered to a majority of the voting public...

    i think this one captures it best (dictionary.com):

    Logic. An empty or vacuous statement composed of simpler statements in a fashion that makes it logically true whether the simpler statements are factually true or false; for example, the statement Either it will rain tomorrow or it will not rain tomorrow.

    George Bush loves hyperbole, non sequiturs and malapropism :)

    Thought I might get a response from you... :D

    I remember it from the British perspective through the 80's...

    Much as I'd love to hear what I expect is an Irish Revolutionary Ballad right now, it's not available on iTMS UK. Work that one out! :rolleyes:

    Sorry, it's a link to the Clancy Brothers singing "The Rising of the Moon." It must be some diabolical censorship from the royalists in AppleUK. ;)

    No...and to Zim, I also know what you are talking about...many of my relatives live in the Greater London area, and I am back there as often as I can afford...w/ or w/o trash cans (rubbish bins)...
    I meant my first comment to be rhetorical, but do you think some paralells can be drawn/lessons learned from that conflict with respect to Iraq? I have some fairly strong biases, I will admit...of course, the same might be said for our current conflict w/ Iraq (if for different reasons)...I do not mean to take the thread off-course...
