  • Double-whammy

    Den Beste got sent a link to an article on how Bush is misleading everyone into thinking war is necessary. The article itself contains pretty much every one of the tactics they accuse Bush of. Comedy ensues.

  • New month, new server, new look

    While moving to the new server, I also learned some CSS and threw away the last bits of the old Blogger-inspired template in favor of some “new hotness”. It’s perfect in both IE6 and Mozilla 1.2.1, and very close in Konqueror 3.0. If some late-model browser (I don’t care about IE4.x or 5.x or Netscape 4.x, sorry) chokes on it, please let me know. The basic layout is derived from an example at The Layout Reservoir, so big thanks to them!

    UPDATE: There’s something goofy with the individual archive pages, at least in IE6. (Text doesn’t appear until you scroll the window or highlight it, very strange). That template was going under the knife next anyway 🙂

  • TROOPtrax

    I’m behind on this because of the drama with the site, but Michele has started TROOPtrax, in which people donate to buy CDs for our military personnel overseas. A very cool idea for a very good cause!

  • Rummy, deFranked

    From a real Rummy press conference:

    Q: Could you tell us — could you tell us why the administration to date at least doesn’t favor direct talks with the North Korean government? After all, we continue speaking to the French. (Laughter.)

    Rumsfeld: (Pause.) I’m not going there. (Laughter.) The French are our allies in NATO, and North Korea is a very different situation.

  • You made it!

    To repeat once again, this is the new server! Please check it out and post comments and do whatever. Once the name servers catch up, this will be as before, so you don’t need to worry about memorizing the new name.

    Thanks for reading!

    Glenn claims victory after Russia says it will veto new Iraq resolutions to preserve “stability”. (The stability of their oil contracts with Saddam, to be precise).

    Meanwhile, at Harvard, sex discrimination is out of control and creating a “hostile environment” ripe for lawsuits. Isn’t it?

    Lileks introduces the war. If you read only one thing today, well, you’ve already blown it on this intro. But stretch the rules and click on through.

  • You made it!

    If you can read this, you’ve made it to the new site. Don’t worry, the DNS switchover should happen soon assuming this new server is up to the load (it feels much much snappier posting and doing other MT maintenance!).

  • Baghdad Batteries

    The BBC has an article on some interesting archaeological finds in and around Baghdad. It saddens me that they have chosen to present the story with a “war could destroy these artifacts” slant. Though regrettable, isn’t the destruction of artifacts preferable to the continued abuse and mistreatment of the Iraqi people? I’m sure that’s not the ANSWER the ‘peace’ protesters are looking for.

    Signs point to ‘yes’, but Glenn isn’t convinced their motives are pure (neither am I).
