I have left in one reference to Love Bush. If somebody wants me to make the effort to love George W. Bush, no problem. I don’t need to bash George W. Bush, and in future I won’t. I’ll just quote him. That should be sufficient. This will meet the requirements of polite discourse without any rancour.
Oh, did anybody read about OBL getting permission from some Saudi religious person to nuke the US? I wonder if Ashcroft quit so he wouldn’t get blamed for it. I understand from my technically oriented friends that it’s actually harder than it looks to make a nuke go off. What is more likely in a terrorist scenario is a conventional bomb in an inconvenient location going off while jacketed with some trifling quantity of plutonium. What a world.
