Man, brisk out there this morning. Actually had to run the heater on the way in. Hooray for fall! I feel re-energized already, having survived another summer.

Say, anyone know of a good place to pick up some boxes in the Columbia/Laurel/Silver Spring corridor? We almost had enough. Heh.

And moving crew, what kind of beer should I pick up to feed you on Sunday? I'm going to grab some Sam Adams, and, uh, something else. I don't drink enough beer to know these things, it appears.

Much to do tonight. Weekend's right around the corner.

"President Bush had nothing to say at the United Nations... This was the clearest message of his 25-minute speech before the General Assembly — that he has no plans to change course, no desire to talk with his enemies, no proposals to put on the table, no initiatives of any sort..."

Eugene Robinson: "But we shouldn't have to talk about the practicalities of torture, because the real question is moral: What kind of nation are we? What kind of people are we?"

Keith Olbermann: "The President of the United States owes this country an apology." (Good read.)

Dan Froomkin: "On the dominant issue of our time, the president is in denial. By most reliable accounts, three and a half years into the U.S. occupation, Iraq is in chaos - if not in a state of civil war, then awfully close. But President Bush insists it's not so. You might think that the enormous gulf between Bush's perceptions and reality on such a life-and-death topic would be, well, newsworthy."

Neat: Ehrlich wants paper ballots for the November election.

How about the 3 million year-old skeleton of a little girl?
