Emma writes her name

Pretty amazing considering she only just turned 3. She was drawing and then just wrote the letters without even mentioning it.

shootfirst.org: shoot first, ask questions never!

Be careful when visiting Florida, the "Shoot first" doctrine goes into effect October 1. The culture of fear is turning this nation into a vigilante state. I can just hear the defense: "I aint runnin' nowehere. The guy scratched my car and yelled aggressively. I felt threatened and had no other option than to pull out my colt 45 to defend myself. Can I go now? I have an important NRA meeting".

Pic from Emma's birthday. She turned 3 - and the text on my t-shirt clearly shows that I am in denial (it was like yesterday....yada yada yada).

Bush's Social Construction of Reality

Daily Kos: Political Analysis and other daily rants on the state of the nation.

A reminder of the Bush administration's mindset: Reality is a social construction anyway, so let's construct it all the way through. It brings back memories of a time when pictures were remade to fit a new model of reality, when people (remember Trotsky anyone?) were removed from pictures after they fell out of grace. Well, bad comparison: in this case they are not removing people, quite the opposite, they are duplicating them to hide the fact that the army means it literally when they are talking about "an army of one".
