RQ's dad came into town last night, so that's gonna be most of my week. I've been watching Children of Dune on and off, but haven't been paying much attention to it, honestly. It does benefit from there being no David Lynch version to compare it to, as I predicted. I'll probably rewatch it before coming up with a final verdict.

Oh, some Heroclix was played Sunday, as only Goblin and Norton showed up. (Norton merely observed, again, but it was good seeing him.) We actually finished a three-way game, as RQ's retooled No Limit Man-Bat army won by points. And while Vision pulled his weight, I think I'm ready to give up on the midcard Avengers for a while.

Time for a <a <a href="http://www.nandotimes.com/opinions/story/811734p-5767649c.html">Radio Sawa</a> update! Man, I want a t-shirt of them, er, if they have 'em.

Looking at the <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/18/opinion/18KRIS.html?th">ruins of Troy</a> for history lessons from the 'history's first World War.'

<lj-cut text="Today's news...">NEWS:

I tried to avoid news today, because I knew it would be along the same notes, but I did break down and first read a transcript of last night's speech, and then <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A45132-2003Mar18.html">Howard Kurtz.</a> Oh, and Daschle's criticism of Bush's <a href="http://www.nandotimes.com/politics/story/811806p-5767923c.html">failed diplomacy.</a>

Oddly enough, even victory in Iraq <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/18/opinion/18KRUG.html?th">won't improve</a> perception of the US overseas.

Bad news about the new <a href="http://www.nandotimes.com/opinions/story/811218p-5764821c.html">Palestinian prime minister.</a> *Good* news as Palestinian politicians <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/18/international/middleeast/18PALE.html?th">figured out</a> what Arafat's up to.

Oh, and we're back at orange alert, so, ah, wear more orange or whatever.
