Ahem.

"The former CIA official who coordinated U.S. intelligence on the Middle East until last year has accused the Bush administration of 'cherry-picking' intelligence on Iraq to justify a decision it had already reached to go to war, and of ignoring warnings that the country could easily fall into violence and chaos after an invasion to overthrow Saddam Hussein."

Can we start impeachment hearings *now*?

My weekend's looking pretty goofy.

Tonight, drive to Selene's parents' house, crash there.
Tomorrow, work at early o'clock. Drive home to Baltimore, then pick up bebe in the evening, drive back to Selene's parents' house.
Sunday morning, awards ceremony for Selene's play. At some point that day, dinner with their family for two birthdays.
Monday morning, drop off bebe. Hopefully thereafter, drop off car to get it looked at (if I can get a loaner) or a return to the dentist.

Busy busy busy. And don't tell me about this snow business, because I'm not buying a minute of it.

"Two generations stared at the same shortcomings, inequities and hypocrisies of American life, but it was the Baby Boom generation that chose to tackle them, to hold this country to its grand ideals, to agitate for justice when it would have been easier to remain docile and silent, and we are a better nation because of that. It is why this generation's accomplishments eclipse what came before it, and why the Baby Boom must be recognized as the Greater Generation."
