Iraq has a constitution
However, Condoleezza says to expect more bombing, killing and mayhem. How can she accept that 39 of the 70 killed near Ramadi by USA warplanes and helicopters on Sunday, October 9th were civilians? Since the war began almost 20,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed. Most Americans casually accept that. If I say anything about these numbers to my friends here at Pine Needle Manor, I’m told - “It’s their own fault - They kill each other -” or some variation thereof. If I reply, “No, it’s our fault. We invaded Iraq and started this war.” I’m given a sad look, and dismissed as unpatriotic.

“Yes, Virginia, Lucifer is real. He exists in the hearts of men.”

Packing for Florida

I’ve set up two drawers in my dresser for my trip. I want to take just enough things to last two weeks with a change of clothes each day. That way I can do two loads of wash every two weeks while I’m away. Hopefully I’ll have to do wash just once, maybe two times. I’ve also taken out a new Florida bank account and a money market account that I can slowly move money into from other accounts, so Ruth won’t notice. I’ve sold 4 stocks and put the proceeds into the new money market account. So, if I find the right place, I can go ahead and buy it. I’ve checked out gay real estate agents on line at Gay Real Estate Agents.Com, and I have agents lined up in the Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach areas.


It’s going to happen!

Alpha the First

It has never come to pass in the entire history of hurricane forecasting. But then there has never been a hurricane season like this one. All the more reason for me to say nothing to Ruth about the upcoming trip to Florida. I don’t want to give my wonderful daughter more ammunition for her claim that I’ve lost my mind.

Katrina Relief

Many of the hotels in the Gulf States that were allowing flood victims to stay for free have now reneged on their promise to the Red Cross and FEMA. One flood victim was told, “We’re done doing the Katrina flood thing.” They are turning the homeless away. Raise your voice, and cry, “Foul!!!”

Donate money to the American Friends Service Committee for relief along the Gulf Coast. The Friends are much more likely to do good things for the unfortunate people of the region than anyone I can think of, and they will not proselytize while doing so.
