... the biggest burden is carried by President George W. Bush, who made the decision to commit US troops to war, and reminded the public that U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan volunteered for duty.
I wonder if good ole Dick knows how heartless such a comment looks in print.
This past weekend I was continued my reading of Job and came across a verse that truly spoke to my heart. One young dude responds to Job’s complaints that God has falsely accused Job and is now ignoring him. The young dude says, “Why do you take Him (God) to court for not answering anything a person asks? For God speaks time and again, but a person may not notice it. In a dream, a vision in the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber on their beds, He uncovers their ears at that time …”
Could it be that God has been speaking and acting and either I’ve been oblivious or I’ve attributed His voice to someone/something else?

Dog owners angry at public sex plan
Dog owners in Amsterdam are angry after the city legalised public sex in one of the city's most famous parks. But they promised to clampdown on dog owners who let their pets walk in the park without a lead.
One dog owner protested: "As long as the park has existed, we've been allowed to let our dogs run freely. It's outrageous that we will be punished from now on but public sex won't."
And from Italy:
Court Rules Against Public Groping
In a landmark judgment with far-reaching social implications, Italy's highest appeals court has ruled it is a criminal offence for Italian men to touch their genitals in public.
The judges of the court of cassation stressed that the ban did not just apply to brazen crotch-scratching, but also to what might be termed superstitious pre-emption. Anyone who has seen a hearse go past in Italy, or been part of a discussion in which some terrible illness or disaster is mentioned, will know it is traditional for men to ward off bad luck with a quick grab at what are delicately called their "attributi".
Anyway, in case anyone cares I now have a family website.
You may notice the "mac" reference - yes, I have crossed to the dark side. Or, as the folks at my local mac store say, "I have seen the light."
Our new website has photos, blogs for me and my husband, info about us, etc.
So check it out if you have some spare time.
