Big smiley morning. :)
That's George... "Geo" and he's feeling loads better. Edward was totally burned out this morning but I shuffled him off to buffalo school anyways... and I'll bet he does just fine. :)

We woke up to minus 16 temps and a layer of new snow and ice over everything. Sigh. Car scraping, and shivering as I drive. I'm still stuck in the "I don't need my boots yet" zone... but I'm sure I'll move away soon. :)

So d'ya think the US Army brought some skewers and marshmellows to go along with that Phosphorous?
I mean, they were only hold out resistance fighters... er... and their families...
but heck... you see one flaming iraqui... you've seen 'em all.
Besides... you can't expect to avoid collateral damage in a war...
'specially when you use incendiary bombs... geez.
What'd you expect... ?
I mean... they're the bad guys right.
I wonder if Rum-sfeld walked the scorched earth tossing playing
cards around and saying "I love the smell of Phosphorous in the morning!"

The Canadian government is in negotiations with a group representing Chinese Canadians to make some reparations for a head-tax immigration scam they (the gov) ran in 1885. They (gov) wanted to dissuade Chinese immigration at the time... so they charged them about two months salary to get into the country.
This was hugely insulting and descriminatory. Of course, this happened a hundred years ago... but apparently this doesn't matter.
Twelve million is on the table... and so far it's looking like it's going to some Canadian Chinese School Association thing. Never mind that there are 12 families that are descendants of the original head-tax-payers on the sidelines.
So here's my thing... WT F!!!!!!?
Why are my tax dollars being used to pay out a bunch of money to a school fund because a government a hundred plus years ago did something fucking stupid?
Geezus... An apology maybe... but screw off after that. None of these people paid the head tax thing..and none of us collected the money.
Holy freaking old news batman... and talk about a cash grab. I say screw off and stop waisting my money.

K... time to find coffee and get productive. :)

ps. Welcome to the universe Harry... We're all going to HP and the Goblet tomorrow at lunch. :D
