A Wonderful World

A beautiful morning here, sun shining, breeze blowing and the air smells like jasmine. Let me share some happy thoughts:

  • A record loss of sea ice in the Arctic this summer has convinced scientists that the northern hemisphere may have crossed a critical threshold beyond which the climate may never recover. From The Independent
  • A "Diebold Insider" is now finally speaking out for the first time about the alarming security flaws within Diebold, Inc's electronic voting systems, software and machinery. The source is acknowledging that the company's "upper management" -- as well as "top government officials" -- were keenly aware of the "undocumented backdoor." The Brad Blog
  • Gallup finds Bush’s approval rating climbing since Katrina. The Raw Story
  • Federal officials appear to be seeking proof to blame the flood of New Orleans on environmental groups, says The Mississippi Clarion-Ledger
  • Pentagon Official Urges Congress to Reduce Spending on Health Care for Troops to free up more money for Star Wars programs. Operation Truth

It’s a wonderful world – have a nice day.

Yeah, beautiful day alright. I'm waiting to wake up one morning to learn the Constitution has been amended to let Mr. Bush serve indefinitely... Like Petunia says, things can always get worse.

That exact scenario has been running through my head - or perhaps some disaster that "nobody could have predicted" will cause him to suspend elections and declare emergency powers.
