Info From Illegal Surveillance Shared Widely

mikevotes of at Born at the Crest of the Empire caught this in the Washington Post first thing this morning.

Seems that the information from NSA's illegal surveillance program was disseminated widely throughout the government, most importantly to the Defense Intelligence Agency, an agency that has already been caught conducting improper surveillance of peaceful anti-war groups.

This whole mess continues to get worse and worse.

I find it incredibly irreponsible that the Washington Post continues to expose the possibly-illegal yet patriotic actions made by our nation's brave intelligence agencies.

When, oh when will they cease hating America?
Not surprising that it got missed. It's page A08 on New Year's day. It couldn't be hidden any better. Because even on Christmas, people read the paper. New Year's they just sit in a cool dark place.


And, I'm sorry, I'm not gonna play tag on the blog. I've gotten seven of these "tags" from people for five different sets of lists. If I did them all, that would be all my blog is. I'm really sorry, but I'll give you a couple answers here though.


Nonfiction books: Clam plate orgy (look it up. it was the first of its kind, I have a first edition), The protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism(Weber), On the Origins of War: And the Preservation of Peace (kagan.)

Lived in Houston forever.

Deaths, I don't know off the top of my head.

Divest myself of

1 run on sentences and uneccesarry explanatory clauses.

2 the "big game", I vow not to let them tell me which sporting events I should watch

3 my ego, it sereves no one.

4 some of the venomousness that creeps into me

5 watching syndicated sitcoms - they're totally useless yet I find them comforting


And nobody does art in these things. Kandinsky, matisse, Basquiat, Stiglitz.


That gives you a little picture of me.

No truer words, Rex! I'm going to go out and cancel my subscription right now! Uh...

Right you are. I rescanned news.google.com and couldn't find a word, and my place is cool dark and frickin' rainy today.

BTW, don't worry about the tag. I should have known better and assumed you'd been tagged already. Your blog gets more traffic than mine to begin with. :-)
Happy New year!!!
