7/25/03 the most notorious lie ever

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

“The check is in the mail”? Doesn’t anyone in the benighted Bush Administration know that’s the most notorious lie ever?

7/21/03 a merciful downslope

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

From an email I just got from MoveOn.org: In an amazing departure from reality, President Bush explained in a press conference on the 14th that “we gave [Saddam Hussein] a chance to allow the inspectors in, and he wouldn’t let them in.

On the way home from work last night, around 10:30 or so, as I was walking from Ashby BART to my soon-to-be-former house in South Berkeley, I noticed several cop cars at the intersection of Ashby and Martin Luther King. My heart sunk to imagine what was happening; I thought the corner store might have […]
