10/7    Navy lawyer whose defense of Osama bin Laden's driver led to the
        Hamdan decision is forced into retirement by the Navy:

10/8    Basically, you all wish you were South Korean:
        "Frantic, piercing, the shrieks echoed down the corridors from one
        corner of the vast underground complex. There hundreds of young people,
        mostly women and girls, waved signs and sang slogans as they swirled
        in the glare of klieg lights. It was the kind of fan frenzy that
        anywhere else would be reserved for rockers or movie legends... In fact
        the objects of the throng's adoration were a dozen of the nation's
        most famous athletes... These were professional video gamers, idolized
        for their mastery of the science-fiction strategy game StarCraft."
        \_ In Korea, there are several television channels devoted solely to
           televising matches between video gamers on games like StarCraft.
           I guess that sure beats having several television channels devoted
           to home shopping of crappy, useless household items, as we do here
           in America.

10/8    It's almost November, let's review some of the memorable highlights
        of 2004-2006:
        -Terry Schiavo on news
        -Cheney shoots his friend
        -Abramoff scandal
        -Kenneth Lay finally dies
        -Tom Delay
        -Bob Ney
        -Duke Cunningham
        -you forgot William Jefferson--who's still serving in congress...
         \_ Shhh!  Only Republicans are corrupt.  Stay on message.
            \_ Ahh, the equivalence game.
               \_ Republican evilness is no game.  All Republicans are evil.
                  No one said anything about equivalence because there isn't
                  any.  How hard is it to understand?  I'll explain again:
                  all Republicans are evil.  Just keep saying it.
                  \_ Are all Republicans alchoholic gay pedophiles or just
                     your leadership?

10/8    Basically, really fucking glad I am not in Korea!:
        \_ I actually am in Korea.  No third eye yet. -jrleek
           \_ Why are you in Korea?  I'm assuming Seoul.  Seoul is not
              North Korea, so of course you wouldn't feel any negative
              effects from the earthquake/nuclear test.
              \_ Depends on which way the wind blows.
              \_ Go look on a map, Seoul is next door to North Korea
              \_ That tends to happen when you marry a Korean.
