Rock Star

(no subject)

Last night, M. and I headed downtown and caught up with girlie47 and safetypup at the Luna Grill, which was a tasty treat. And not overly expensive, either, a surprise for DC. Afterwards, we all headed to the DC Improv to catch Flip Orley. I had seen him once before, many moons ago, he puts on a damn funny show. The audience took a little while to warm up, but that, in fact, only made things funnier.

Today, dead tired. Zzz.

And happy birthday to the lovely needsunshine!

"Nobody is suggesting, of course, that the killing of 3,000 innocent Americans on 9/11 wasn't an outrage, deserving of justice for the victims and punishment for the perpetrators. The question is whether the horrific attacks led the Bush administration and the U.S. in general to greatly or massively overestimate the threat posed to the U.S. and global security by Islamic extremism."
