More movies with Red Queen: the Muppets from Space DVD commentary track, with Gonzo and Rizzo, is fun. The Stand is much as I remembered it, bad special effects, huge cast with lots going on. Was almost as much fun imdB-ing it after watching it.
Washington Post article on chickenhawks in the current administration. Also, they had a story on manga if you are into that sort of thing.
More false pretenses:
In an interview with CNN yesterday, Brent Scowcroft, who was national security adviser to Bush's father, differed with Cheney's comments on Iraq and global terrorism. "Vice President Cheney is a very dear friend of mine. Not all my good friends are always right," Scowcroft said. "I'm not even saying he is wrong. What I really am saying is that suppose there had been no 9/11 attack at all. Saddam Hussein would still be doing exactly what he is doing. He is not a problem for us because of terrorism."
