’nuff said: Ahmadinejad to Visit Ground Zero, Or Vice Versa.
(2007-09-19) â€” President George Bush today said he would consider â€œalternative meansâ€ to accommodate a request by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to visit â€˜Ground Zeroâ€˜, the former site of the World Trade Center towers, during his trip to the United Nations next week.
â€œYou know the old expression,â€ Mr. Bush said. â€œIf Mahmoud canâ€™t come to Ground Zero, we may have to bring Ground Zero to Mahmoud.â€
The White House refused to clarify the presidentâ€™s statement.
I’m moving into Rep. James Walsh’s (R-25) district next week. I was initially happy I could move out of Rep. Louise Slaughter’s (D-28) district (and still am), but now I’m starting to wonder if my faith is a little misplaced…
(September 13, 2007) â€” Rep. James T. Walsh will return to Washington, D.C., on Monday to try to build support for his recent call to withdraw American troops from Iraq.
In a meeting Wednesday with the Democrat and Chronicle Editorial Board, Walsh disagreed with Gen. David H. Petraeus’ recommendation for a gradual troop reduction that would leave around 130,000 American troops in Iraq by next summer. Walsh called for a quicker withdrawal but offered no specifics on when, how fast, or in what numbers troops should leave.
“As long as we’re doing their hard work, there’s no pressure on them,” he said.
I’m not sure what his agenda is, here, in changing his view. As the article mentions, he’s the only one of the Rochester delegation — Tom Reynolds (R-26), Slaughter, and Randy Kuhl (R-29) — to break from their party’s position. Methinks I’d better pay close attention to the primary races next year.

For lunch, I’m eating a ham and cheese with bacon sandwich. Yahweh. Allah, and my doctor can bite my ass.
Buddhism is the true religion of peace. They should sue Islam for deceptive marketing practices.
I don’t need 72 virgins. Just give me four hotties in bikinis playing beach volleyball on ESPN2. And some cheese fries.

The two-and-a-half-year-old son of one of my favorite columnists, Bob Lonsberry, brought home one of Bob’s favorite pieces of literature from the library the other day: “The Little Red Hen.” But he was a little disturbed by what he found inside:
If you don’t produce, you don’t consume. If you can’t work to provide your bread, you don’t get any bread.
I love it. It’s such a true and rational principle. If you don’t work, you don’t eat. By the sweat of their brow they shall eat their bread.
The little red hen is my hero, and â€œThe Little Red Henâ€ is one of my favorite pieces of literature. So I was excited last night to see that Jack had brought â€œThe Little Red Henâ€ home with him from the library.
Except it looked different.
There was a subtitle.
â€œThe Little Red Hen Makes A Pizza.â€
The title wasn’t the only thing that changed. Have a look.
