Six Days

Badgers Forward is reporting Six Days straight without a single insurgent attack. Not one shot, not one bomb, no mortars, no RPGs. This, in Al Anbar. Seen this reported anywhere? Any newspaper? Any TV coverage (even Fox)? No. We're too busy with important news like Paris friggin' Hilton.

Another Bleg

OK, I still haven't installed Ubuntu (Edgy Eft) on my main box. I've done some more reading on the subject and I'm looking at a wipe and reinstall. The questions now are: Do I use NTFS or FAT32? Would one work better than the other? Should I install Beryl? It looks really, really cool but what about stability? From all accounts, it's done as a project and people are moving on to something else.

Second: does anyone use Skype? What about Skype cell phones? I'm a total n00b on Skype so any advice is appreciated.

Blessed with smarts and power but burdened by vanity.

Apparently I'm a "liberal-leaning capitalist-leaning democrat". Interesting!

News of the weird

Some things defy parody. I couldn't have made this up if I tried. Hell, if I did, nobody would believe me. I suppose they have some things in common but c'mon, seriously? Aren't there any other fish in the sea?

This far and no farther

When you've lost Peggy Noonan you don't have anyone left to lose. It must have pained her to write such a piece. I'm sure she'll be PNG in GOP circles until the new crew takes over.

I feel sick. Remember that soccer game I've been playing on Wednesday nights? Leonard was one of the players. I can't say I knew him, but I knew who he was. It's jarring to know that I played soccer with him on Wednesday and he was dead on Saturday. I played with him for his last game and he was 16. 16 years old and he's gone. My heart breaks for the parents. I have no idea how you go on after something like that.
