Politicians are like bananas; they hang together, they're all yellow, and there's not a straight one among them.

^Thanks DM.

It's interesting reading, though I wish he'd make the background a touch darker, it's making my eyes hurt a bit :wacko:

Yeah-the background needs to be darker. :Oo:

I emailed Ogami a link to this thread, so he'll read what you folks post.

I keep tabs on his journal at least once a week.  I feel better checking in on him on a regular basis.  It is interesting reading.

Rules for surviving an Autocracy:

Rule#1: Believe the Autocrat.
Rule#2: Do not be taken in by small signs of normality.
Rule#3: Institutions will not save you.
Rule#4: Be outraged.
Rule#5: Don't make compromises.
Rule#6: Remember the future.

He emailed me again and got your message. It's a darker pea green-and it works.  :cool:


Anyway-I'm off to take a nap. I've got a short story that I'm fighting with-I'm having trouble getting the scenes right.  :wacko:

Thanks, DM.

Whenever I hear about some battle or explosion or general badness happening in Afghanistan, I worry even more these days. So, like Cait, I check his journal fairly frequently. I didn't know about the latest entry, though.
"Facts are stupid things." -Ronald Reagan at the 1988 Republican National Convention, attempting to quote John Adams, who said, "Facts are stubborn things"

"Although health care enrollment is actually going pretty well at this point, thousands and maybe millions of Americans have failed to sign up for coverage because they believe the false horror stories they keep hearing." -- Paul Krugman

Thanks for passing this on :)
My candle burns at both its ends;
It will not last the night;
But oh, my foes, and oh, my friends --
It gives a lovely light."
