Points of Interest: June 19, 2007
Cousin Lem over at Hillbilly White Trash has his usual plethora of political pontifications to plow through, but also took time enough to point to an indication that all this political stuff really doesn't matter much anymore....now that the end times are near. (The sign says it all.)
Sister Toldjah sounds off on (among other things) that dude in North Carolina (you know, the one who couldn't prosecute a rape case even if he HAD one), English war veterans being honored on the 25th anniversary of their victorious defense of the Falkland Islands (including what happened when a Tennessee gentleman met the Iron Lady herself), a few choice words for the BBC, and probably the most creative excuse the UN has to offer for the situation in Darfur. (Nope. You'll never guess it.)
Folks, the inestimable Greyhawk has gone back to the Big Sandbox. Go on...stop on by and give him some sugar. While you're there, go ahead and give Mrs. G's Dawn Patrol a good rolling through. There's more news there about the state of the GWOT than in a week's worth of any ten newspapers you could name. No lie.
And finally, raise a glass with me to the health of Matt Currier Burden and the crew of the good ship Blackfive, which celebrated its fourth bloggiversary yesterday. Good on ya, gents....and thank you for keeping the deeds and memories of our truest heroes alive and well. [CLINK]
