Still out in Brandywine. Both bebe and Selene are feeling sick. Bebe is having problems keeping food down, so don't want to risk the long drive back just yet. Fun fun.

Haven't been able to check mail since Saturday night, so, if you're waiting for a reply from me, uh, I appreciate your patience, and hope to check mail by tonight. Especially think I think it's safe to say tha dinner for tonight might not be in the cards. Time will tell.

"An information war is breaking out on multiple fronts, with journalists caught in the crossfire. Federal investigators are looking into several national security leaks to the press. Government agencies are trying to muzzle staffers who don't toe the official line. Cartoonists are the latest to find their work denounced, with violent results in the Middle East. And it doesn't stop there. Politicians are even trying to creatively edit what's said about them online. All these pressure tactics are being employed in the name of influencing public opinion, which increasingly means manipulating information and controlling how - and whether - it is made public. Journalists, who are genetically disposed toward greater openness, are having a harder time fighting these battles because of declining public faith in their profession."
