        Carter and Clinton the worst administration ever!
        \_ Well one guy started an illegal, unwinnable war, but... but...
           \_ Yeah, we left Kosovo long ago. Such a cheery speech,
              National Malaise.
              \_ With full NATO involvement and cooperation.
                 \_ And a humanitarian goal that was actually achieved.
                   \_ By this you mean entrenching Iran and other
                       Islamicists in Albania's government and Montenegro?
                       Humanitarian indeed.
                       \_ had a bad day at the golf range, jblack?
                        \_ I was thinking more along the lines of stopping
                           ethnic cleansing.
                           \_ We took the wrong side, if that isn't clear
                              by now.
        \_ Wow, Carter and Clinton on one ticket? I'd vote for that!
           Also, I can understand IP addresses for freerepublic, but
  Have some pride, child. --erikred

5/29    Speaking of supers movies, at XM3 they had a preview for Ghost
        Rider which looked awesome.
        \_ Alan Vega. Suicide. Ghostrider. Ghostrider.
           Ghostrider, motorcycle hero.
           Ghostrider, motorcycle hero.
           Baby, baby, baby, baby, he's blazing away!
           Like the star, star, stars in the universe, yeah.
           Baby, baby, baby, he's looking so cute, yeah!
           Riding around in a blue jumpsuit, yeah.
           Baby, baby, baby, baby, he's screaming the truth!
           America is killing its youth.
           I see them trying, dying, choking, drowning, going down, going down.
           I see you dying, dying.
           Oh. You don't wanna break apart Ghostrider's heart.
           He's riding through your town with his head on fire.
           He's riding through your town with his head on fire.
           Halo burning. Eyes are crying. Halo buring. Eyes are crying.
           Ghostrider, Ghostrider, Ghostrider, Ghostrider keep riding.
           Never stop riding.
           Hey, hey, don't forget to burn, don't forget to burn.
           Burn with fire. With fire, fire, fire, fire!
           With fire! Yeah!

5/29    What's the Python library for downloading a file via HTTP?  I'm
        thinking of something along the lines of http.get(url). (simple)
        \_ >>import urllib
           >>page= urllib.urlopen('<DEAD>').read<DEAD>

5/29    I have a feeling that anti-US sentiment is running strong.  I just
        don't see how a traffic accident can cause such:
        \_ America haters have always wanted to throw rocks at American
           soldiers. Now they have an excuse. My take is that America
           will never fully understand why foreigners hate America,
           nor does it have the capacity to understand and even care
           what others think. "We are good, and everyone else is evil."
           \_ It's really cool how you write with such sweeping
              generalizations and abstractions.  Do you refer to yourself in
              the third person when you speak? -dans
        \_ I have a feel that the I-dont-give-a-damn-about-what-others
           -think sentiment is running strong in America, especially
           in the cowboy zone of America:
        \_ Big Army truck in a convoy hit a car, 1 dead Afghan, 4 injured.
           It looked like the truck was driving away.  I'd be mad as hell.
        \_ you make the mistake of assuming that what is reported is
           even remotely linked to reality.
           \_ the casualty is higher than that.  But this is nothing new,
              though.  To avoid attack, both Army and private contractors
              are instructed to drive as fast as they can.  If there are
              people in the way, they simply run over them.  Private
              contractors and army drivers run over people VERY frequently
              in Afganistan / Iraq.   I just don't see how THIS particular
              "accident" is different than any other cases.
