>^..^< From time to time it has been necessary for Indigo to remind some people (who shall be nameless!) that Women Marines are to be admired and respected along with their male brothers. Blackfive thinks so too. See his blog The Fewer, The Prouder, The Women Marines. The MSM missed the letter Lance Corporal Jessica K. in Iraq wrote to her parents about her Thanksgiving in Fallujah. Don't know how that could have happened, but you can go to the link and read it. Semper Fi, Ladies!!

>^..^< Jen Martinez posts a letter from USMC and Vietnam Combat Veteran, Joseph Anderson, to Fox News. He opines that they may not be so "fair and balanced" after all. Read it here.

>^..^< A lot of research and effort by Patti Bader makes Iraq War Today another dependable blog for getting timely war news. Also visit the Soldiers' Angels.

>^..^< Pennywit blogged:
Students at the University of North Carolina at Asheville have formed three group blogs. As I understand it, at least two of these blogs (possibly three) have their genesis in a mass media and politics class that, among other things, examined the role of blogs in this year's election. Give them a read. --PW

>^..^< Chris McGehee (Mrs. Kevin) is Catblogging - much to my delight!

>^..^< GOC in Atlanta linked to Mullings a couple of days ago. If you missed it, here's another chance. It's a hoot and I'm rereading and relaughing.

>^..^< Visited Jack at Random Fate lately? Try him. You'll like him. His head is always planted firmly on his shoulders - which is refreshing in bloggers, don't you think?

>^..^< Armstrong Williams on Mfume's "retirement" Via link from Betsy's Page

>^..^< Vote for your favorite blogs in the 2004 Weblog Awards.

>^..^< Another "Help Needed" campaign -- but all that's needed is a little of your time. So little to you, so much to our troops. Read all about it at SlagleRock.

Mark Twain: Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.

Winston Churchill: I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

George Bernard Shaw: A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.

P.J. O'Rourke: Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.

Voltaire (1764): In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other.

Wealth without work,
Pleasure without conscience,
Knowledge without character,
Commerce without morality,
Science without humanity,
Worship without sacrifice, and
Politics without principle.
~~ Mahatma Gandhi
