I am sitting here in a bar in the hotel, blogging and surfing. While there are many things I would like to see in DC on this perfect Sunday afternoon......I neglected to pack sneakers. I can NOT go one more step in any of the fashionable sandals I did pack. So instead I am here. It's not all bad. I am enjoying this afternoon of total relaxation. Having a cocktail, surfing......no work, no laundry, no committments.
So I caught up with some stuff and I'll throw it out to you.
NYT: "Many Detainees at Guantánamo Rebuff Lawyers" You just can't help some people! LOL! How bad *don't* I feel?
Again the NYT: "Not All Troops Would Report Abuse, Study Says" Yeah, but it doesn't say they would tolerate it either. It doesn't say that they wouldn't stop it. Also, they give statistics for depression rates among the military, but no related statistics about depression rates in society as a whole. What did Mark Twain say about lies, damn lies and statistics?
This Day in History
In 1981, imprisoned Irish-Catholic militant Bobby Sands died after refusing food for 66 days in protest of his treatment as a criminal rather than a political prisoner by British authorities
In 1904, Cy Young pitched major league baseball's first perfect game to lead the Boston Americans to a 3-0 win over Philadelphia.
I'm pleased about this -
Sarkozy wins French presidency.
