Hot on the heels of choking on a pretzel, and falling off a Segway scooter because he didn't turn it on, Dubya managed to tear a calf muscle this morning -- by doing up his shoelace. 4 more years?
From the "Could Americans get any dumber" file comes this amusing story: A third of the American public believes U.S. forces have found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, according to a recent poll. Twenty-two percent said Iraq actually used chemical or biological weapons. But such weapons have not been found in Iraq and were not used. Before the war, half of those polled in a survey said Iraqis were among the 19 hijackers on Sept. 11, 2001. But most of the Sept. 11 terrorists were Saudis; none was an Iraqi. The original story is here. Dumb, and Dumberer. That should be the presidential 2004 election motto.
Busy busy busy. Spent a couple of days in Alamagordo in New Mexico last week. That place is the hot, dry, dustbowl of America, that's for sure. They've got White Sands, the Holloman AFB, and the Trinity atom bomb site. Oh, and a pretty neat space museum that only costs $2.50 to get into. That's it. Unless you count I54 which isn't really an interstate. We rolled out of Peppers Grill at 22:30 one night and the town was dead. I mean totally dead - not another car on the road. That made the "open 'till 1 AM" sign on the Wendys that much funnier.
