9/28    The Eagle award voting page is up.  Do the choices always suck
        this badly?  For example, the "favorite web based comic" catagory
        has PvP, and 2 comics that I can't even find webpages for they're
        so unknown. Whaa?  And what's with those choices for best Manga?

           The invaluable Brussels Journal recently translated an interview
           with the writer Oscar van den Boogaard from the Belgian paper De
           Standaard. A Dutch gay "humanist" (which is pretty much the
           trifecta of Eurocool), van den Boogaard was reflecting on the

        Head of the British Army says "our presence in Iraq exacerbates" the
        "difficulties we are experiencing around the world", says should
        "get ourselves out sometime soon".  Also calls for UK soldiers to
        recover in military wards, and laments decline of "Judeo-Christian
        tradition" in UK and rise of Islamic extremism.

9/15    Why can't I bring water to the airplane? Are they trying to
        prevent people making molotov cocktail?
        \_ They're trying to prevent binary liquid explosives coming on planes
           after the very formative "terror attempt" from British airports.
           Nevermind that it would be near impossible to actually combine them
           effectively on the plane...

        \_ Why would you want to listen to color commentators from any

        Bush says you must "learn values and history and language of
        America". I say to Bush, maybe you should learn something about
        world history, public speech, diplomacy, and anger management
        before telling other people what to do.

        \_ The UK has one of the highest concentration of CCTV cameras in
           the world.  Things that would be looked at as horrendous in the
           US are taken for granted there; there is very little concern
           for privacy in many initiatives ranging from collecting road
           tax and issuing speeding tickets to what the yellow press is allowed
