Don't Blame Me, I Voted for Cthulhu  
Condi is the Secretary of State
It's my new mantra. Whenever I think things are going well, when the world seems to be at peace and evil is apparently dormant, I will remember the little nugget, Condi is the Secretary of State, and immediately touch base with my inner pessimist.

The News
American news reporting is worthless. There have been reports of massive election irregularities all over the countries by public organizations, and my time is being wasted on Star Jones' wedding.

Page one of the yesterday's New York Times reports, "American commanders said 38 service members had been killed and 275 wounded in the Falluja assault." Meanwhile, Page 11 of that same issue tell me, "The American military hospital here reported that it had treated 419 American soldiers since the siege of Falluja began."

So here's a question: if 275 soldiers were wounded and 419 were treated for wounds, how many soldiers were shot on the plane to Germany?

Job Hunt
I have a job interview next week at Pitt's IACUC (Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee). It will most likely pay more, which is good, and allow me to keep the excellent benefits package Pitt offers (they match retirement contributions 150%!).
