Mothers Reply To Sheehan

This is great. A local Northwest Paper (beautiful country) asked for comments on Cindy Sheehan from its readers. Here is what they received: My son, who is just 22 years old, is proudly serving his country as a combat medic … just a few miles north of Baghdad. He has completed half of his 18 […]

Homes For The Victims

Hat Tip to Michelle for the find on this excellent effort to help find homes for victims of Katrina. The wife and I were discussing this last night, since it was clear then people would be homeless for months. A fear now confirmed. Big Kudos to Bill Hennessy for setting this up. Homes For Katrina […]

Hundreds/Thousands Dead In New Orleans

Tragically this is not surprising news at the DrudgeReport. The Mayor of New Orleans has released a statement that hundreds to thousands have died in New Orleans from Katrina. Given this is a city of roughly 450,000, and 20% remained behind, that means 90,000 people were possibly in the path of the storm. The largest […]

New/Old Plame Theory

The new theory running through the Justice Department is that Miller is protecting Plame because Plame passed her classified information, according to the Financial Times [hat tip: All Things Conservative] Many have assumed that Miller – who never actually wrote a story identifying Plame as an operative – is protecting Rove and/or other administration officials.

Sheehan Losing Her Luster

I am not surprised one bit that the political organizations on the far left are distancing themselves from Cindy Sheehan, as reported today in the Washington Times by Bill Sammon: Powerful liberal advocacy groups such as MoveOn.org are taking a less active role in Cindy Sheehan’s anti-war activities in the wake of criticism that they […]

Is New Orleans Lost?

In the back of my mind I have been wondering if we are seeing the end of a modern city due to natures ebbs and flows. It has been surprising to me that no major human outpost established 100+ years ago has succumbed in the last 100 years. Nature is moving underneath us, despite our […]

Able Danger Round Up, 08/31/05

Able Danger keeps twisting and turning as news slowly dribbles out. I expect, now that we have hit the end of summer, that a prime Able Danger player – the woman PhD referred to by Shaffer and Phillpott – will come forward sometime in the coming weeks. Not much new from the news outlets since […]

Seirra Club: Sinking Gulf Is Not From Warming

While the shrill, and not too knowledgeable, left wing nuts run rampant claiming Katrina’s devastation was the fault of Bush and convservatives – the rest of us can refer to science and the study of the bayous for the real cause. It is a well known fact, unless you are a Kyoto lemming, that the […]

Latest From New Orleans

For the latest, and most devastating, from New Orleans go here. This is the site of local news as it breaks. For instance, Governor Blanco visited the Superdome and found conditions so bad she ordered its evacuation. Even though the New Orleans Mayor stated people there (they are not refugees) could be there a week. […]
