As December's Days Draw Down …

Vacation Days

Saddened and angered and frightened by the assassinaton of Benazir Bhutto and the precarious state of the world, I was struck this morning by how such events don’t alter Dubya’s vacation schedule.  That got me to looking for specifics about the absolutely obscene number of … Continue reading
