Maybe. Just maybe…
Maybe Senator Reid’s apparently off-hand disclosure of the rumored death of Osama bin Laden in last month’s Pakistani earthquake, was intentional. Because otherwise, that information, had it been received in his official capacity as Senate minority leader would have been very highly classified and not ordinarily releasable in just this way.
At Moe’s on 21st Street in Norfolk:
Burrito: Whew. Thanks man. That foil wrapper was stifling.
Me: No worries.
Burrito: So. What brings you to town?
Me: Och. Day-and-a-half meeting with one or another of these cross functional team thingies of which the Navy has recently grown so fond. Complete with contractor-types left, right [...]
Only time for a(nother) brief note, as I am on a “working” lunch, in between yet another tedious series of PowerPoint presentations showing Just How Awful the financial straits are through which our Navy is navigating. I do believe it is compulsory for staff officers to either view or present at these end-of-the-world kabuki [...]

Went to church today. Don’t remember any of the lessons, nor really [...]
Don’t want to go into any details, suffice it to say that a thing which had been sufficiently worrying took a dramatic turn for the worse this weekend. I’ve been stretched a little too thin for quite some time now, and it’s time for me to shed some workload and re-prioritize my efforts. This [...]

Cross your fingers!
Update: Goldstein comments on Zarqawi’s family [...]
Brought to you by the Weekend Edition of the Wall Street Journal (free minds and free markets!):
Did you realize that only 23% of the population of mainland China falls under the definition of “middle class”?
On the other hand, do you grok the fact that’s still 300 million people?
In other [...]
I was trolling the Navy news website this morning, as is my custom, and chanced across this image of a VF-213 F-14D Tomcat coming into the break overhead the USS Theodore Roosevelt, and of course this photo of a D-model kerplunking heavily into the arresting wires (as is their custom) and it all made [...]
It’s a little known fact that:
Clyde Barrow, of Bonnie and Clyde fame, was 5’7″ tall and weighed 125 pounds.
His brother Melvin clocked in at 110.
Tough, growing up in the depression.
