A grand fisking. Stryker style.

The bombing has begun. We've heard about the bombs that have been targeting fiber optic networks but it's good to hear a first hand account.

Peace talks
How to convince your conservative relatives to oppose the invasion.
By Lynn Rapoport
THE HOLIDAYS ARE upon us, and for the broad spectrum of people in the Bay Area who, for a broad spectrum of reasons, don't support a war in Iraq, the traditional familial

Reasons include knee-jerk contrarianism, unthinking idiocy, oil conspiracy theories, anti-semitism, intellectual dishonesty, shocking levels of naievity, and inability to support anything a Republican president does, not matter how good, right or sensible it is.

huddle around the turkey platter could be pretty grim. A few of you were raised by folks
