SO MUCH TROUBLE IN THE WORLD

Have a good Memorial Day everybody

What is most important today is this - That we remember the deaths of all 2466 men and women of the armed services who have lost their lives in the Iraq War since March 2003. (1943 of these have been due to hostile action, according to military sources.)

I knew there was something I liked about Boston.

And finally ... Here is something for Nicki who one-upped me on an immigration issue.

I was glad to hear about that silent protest. Here in Boston, people aren't afraid to speak their minds:) Happy Memorial Day.

Lone beader ... you can say that again. I like that turtle by the way.

Grumpy Alyssa ... I'm not avoiding you. I spent most of today debating the reasons why I want to piss on Michelle Malkin's head ... and then I did my laundry ... played a little tennis ... went out to dinner with a friend. Did I miss some event that I did not know about?
