I'm back

Ok lots to report...I have been away dealing with personal shit and attending training in Beantown. This was some seriously intensive training.....12 hrs a day and mandatory attendance at dinner......glad to be back!!!

So a lot has happened. Governor George W Bush's poll numbers are in free fall after Katrina. (42% Approve, 57% Disapprove, 1% No opinion - Source Washington Post-ABC News)

Since the really bad stuff that should have stuck to him has not stuck (WMD, him going AWOL during his service, his coke habit, his horrible treatment of John MCCain in the 2000 primary, his mishandling of the post war effort, the leaking of Valerie Plame's name) one hopes that the sky high price of gas (something I really dont think is his fault) will stick and bring this man down a couple of notches.

On another note apparently Blair thinks that BBC coverage of Katrina is "full of hate for America" http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4257190.stm strong words indeed especially if he actually said that.

I dont think he is right. Whats really full of hate is the FOX NEws network. I dont think Hannity, Shepard, Britt, Tony and O'Reilly have said even one positive thing about the Europeans. I dont listen to Rush but God only knows what he has been saying. I dont think the Beeb comes even close to the kind of invective that we are capapble of.

This was an article in this Sunday's Hindu - http://www.hindu.com/mag/2005/09/18/stories/2005091800100300.htm
Bush bashing is really not the issue that these guys need to be getting all hassled about, is it?
