Steadily working my way through the rest of the honey-baked ham from our Christmas dinner. Super-yummy. The raspberry chocolate mousse cake, on the other hand, almost didn't make it past tonight.

Been agonizing for days over starting Bledsoe vs Brunell this week. As if it will make a difference... On a related note, the score pager is working quite nicely.

Just in time for fantasy playoffs, my scoring update pager (Perl) is ready for testing this weekend. There seems to be a restriction on SMTP relaying on this server so I am using the mailer in PHP for now.

Three Who See the War Clearly. Slowly catching up on my reading. The statement by Rep. Cynthia McKinney at the end of this article is simply outstanding.

I will not vote to give one more soldier to the George W. Bush/Dick Cheney war machine. I will not give one more dollar for a war riddled with conspicuous profiteering.

Tonight I speak as one who has at times been the only Member of this Body at antiwar demonstrations calling for withdrawal. And I won't stop calling for withdrawal.

I was opposed to this war before there was a war; I was opposed to the war during the war; and I am opposed to this war now - even though it's supposed to be over.

Report: U.S. admitted wrongful detainment. Does anyone still trust this administration to properly conduct a "war on terror?"

The United States acknowledged last year that the Central Intelligence Agency had wrongfully imprisoned a German man for five months, The Washington Post reported Sunday.

The U.S. ambassador to Germany told the German interior minister that the United States would free Khaled al-Masri and asked the minister not to speak of the case, according to several people with knowledge of the conversation who spoke to the newspaper.

Al-Masri, a Lebanese-born German national, says he was seized while on vacation in Europe last year and then brought to a U.S. prison in Afghanistan where he was tortured and interrogated for suspected ties to the al-Qaida terror group.
