:: Crawford George has morphed into Baghdad Bob

Speaking to reporters this week, (with blatantly obvious previously approved questions and questioners--Susan's words) Mr. Bush made the bizarre argument that the worse things get in Iraq, the better news it is. "The more successful we are on the ground, the more these killers will react," he said.

Now Bush illogic continues: The more Americans, Iraqis and aid workers who get killed and wounded, the more it is a sign of American progress. The more dangerous Iraq is, the safer the world is. The more troops we seem to need in Iraq, the less we need to send more troops.

The harder it is to find Saddam, Osama and W.M.D., the less they mattered anyhow. The more coordinated, intense and sophisticated the attacks on our soldiers grow, the more "desperate" the enemy is.

Stop this ride, Bush. I wanna get off. Eyes Wide Shut - Maureen Dowd piece today in the NYTimes.

:: Extensive article in LAWeekly music section about Dub: All the World’s a Slave - Today, with a planet in bondage, the fragmented yet relentless pull of instrumental riddims could be the colorblind soundtrack to the dance of the chain-breakers. There's the cross-cultural potential. The dance thing. The upsetter rhythms. The revolutionary history. The religious connection, reinforced by tranceful repetitions à la Buddhist or Gregorian chants — this music can lift you off the earth.

And of course, there’s the ganja.

I don't always disclose my age, but let's just say it's between twenty and Wal-Mart greeter.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
