Odds and Ends

Here's another round of miscellaneous news that almost fell through the cracks....

I blogged yesterday about the continuingly deplorable saga wounded soldiers face at Walter Reed medical center. The administration's mostly avoided this subject, but at least one person in charge-- Maj. Gen. George W. Weightman-- has been relieved of his command in the fallout. But wait, what's that? Time to meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Meanwhile, the hospital's advice for soldiers wanting an outlet to talk? Go to Starbucks.

President Bush visited the Gulf Coast today for the first time in half a year. American flags and promises for all! Looks like the recovery process photo-op was a complete success.

The House today passed the Employee Free Choice Act, which helps unions.

The city of Boston continues to be run by the nation's dumbest, most keystone-iest cops.

Republicans like Rudy Guiliani because he's a 'tribal authoritarian'. Democrats like Barack Obama because he turned out to be 100% right on the big issue of our time.

9 million uninsured children are voting for Susie Flynn, though.

The story about the purged U.S. Attorneys looks like only the tip of the iceberg.

Finally, should we be more concerned about what is happening in Pakistan?
