Moving on

The war in Iraq is long gone, so I replaced the link to RWN’s War FAQ under “Special Features” with a new link to, which is a clearinghouse for news and talk about freeing Iran. Iran is definitely one of the “hot-button” issues now in the Middle East, with the mad mullahs getting increasingly freaked out and pro-freedom Iranians getting bolder.

  • Reminder

    Only 3 days left to sponsor the Three Amigos for Blogathon 2003. Give to any of the 3 or all of the 3, either way it helps Magen David Adom.

    Remember: Yasser Arafat, Jacques Chirac, and Kofi Annan will all weep if you sponsor these fine bloggers!


    I sponsored Laurence last year, and his amusing cat/bread videos were worth every penny. This year he’ll be showing how to make tasty pretzels, Michele will make you flash back, and I’m not sure yet what Meryl’s doing but it oughta be good.

  • The return of Marv and Maynard

    First they co-star in a little piece on Lord of the Rings, and then they get a bunch of new toys. Marvin reacts to them roughly the same way Jay typically does.

  • Season’s over, go home

    Here’s the final Trading Spaces recap for Season 3. Season 4 starts in August so it’s not a big break, and TS: Family is ongoing with new episodes, but hey. Anyway, this one has Hildi and Kia. Kia does the more tasteful room of the two. Really.

    UPDATE: This is the final recap by Deborah and P. Frinky ever – TWoP is dropping all TS coverage (including the forums) to save money. So go savor the snark while you still can.

    Thanks to my friend John for this one. I’m sure it puts the fear into his little Marxist heart to know that I mentioned him here :)

    Bush is going for the real black vote by bypassing the charlatans and race-baiters like Jesse Jackass and Kweisi Mfume.

  • Commies win, Puerto Rico loses

    The base at Vieques is being closed now that they can’t do bomb tests there, since it serves no other purpose. This will remove $20+ million a year from the local economy. Nice going, Hillary!
