Don't forget to click the header. On the left, a challenge from a free newspaper here in Albuquerque (I guess it's open to anyone who wants to speak out). Go for it. ************************************************************************************ I found this video to be properly respectful on the President's part. I also found it an eye opener on the collapse of a news anchor I once respected. Tom Brokaw was able (at one time) to take interviewees (sp?) apart with just one question. In this interview he clearly is in awe of BO. Mayhap Tom thinks BO is the Second Coming? ************************************************************* I've also just gotten a spam email offering me a chance to see "Naked Obama". From TMHewkin. (Who may not be the actual sender, I am warned.) Should I send it to David Axelrod? *********************************************************************************** From David Axelrod, The White House Hello - As a Senior Advisor to the President, I'm here in Cairo, Egypt where I watched President Obama deliver an unprecedented speech calling for a new beginning for the United States and Muslim communities around the world. We all know that there has been tension between the United States and some Muslim communities. But, as the President said this morning, if all sides face the sources of tension squarely and focus on mutual interests, we can find a new way forward. The President outlined some big goals for this new beginning in his speech -- including disrupting, dismantling, and defeating violent extremism. It was a historic speech, and since many Americans were asleep at the time it was given we wanted to make sure you had a chance to see it: Majority-Muslim countries around the world are filled with extraordinary people who simply want to live their lives and see their children live better lives, just as in America. Indeed, part of what makes America great is having nearly seven million Muslim Americans living here today and enriching our culture and communities. We can extend that kind of relationship abroad. It won't always be easy, but if we make an effort to bridge our differences rather than resigning ourselves to animosity, we can move toward a more peaceful world over time. Thank you, David Axelrod Senior Advisor to the President WOW! I missed this (June 4) in my email. I'm not sure, but perhaps I responded to something about our President. Only I always use a different ISP and screen name when I do. Hmmmmm. Don't know whether to be flattered or to watch my step. ************************************************************************************ A fart can be a good thing, It gives the belly ease; It warms the bed in winter, And suffocates the fleas. A fart can be quiet, A fart can be loud; Some can leave a foul, Poisonous cloud. A fart can be short, Or a fart can be long; Some farts are noted To sound like a song. A fart can create A most curious medley, A fart can be harmless, Or silent - and deadly. A fart might not smell, While others are vile; A fart may pass quickly, Or linger a while A fart can occur In a number of places And leave everyone there With strange looks on their faces. From wide-open prairie, To small elevator, A fart will find all of Us sooner or later. That farts are all bad, Is simply not true -We must never forget Sweet old farts like you! Sent to me by a friend -- I think. >)~..^(< *********************************************************************************** One last item: In the men's room at work, the boss placed a sign directlyabove the sink. It had a single word on it, "THINK!" The next day, when he went to the men's room, he looked at the sign and right below it, immediately above the soap dispenser, someone had carefully lettered another sign which read, "THOAP!"

Yeah... Brokaw is in the tank. But I'll give him credit for his book on The Greatest Generation. That was good work, although he hasn't done a whole helluva lot since then that is even remotely praiseworthy.

Speaking of praise... the CanConstruction folks deserve it. Good stuff.

Buck, I guess the bleeding hearts got to him. Sigh.
Yeah, I thought that Canstruction stuff was cool. Or maybe some people have too much time on their hands?
