Was it "the robin" or "the grill"?
I'm having a hard time remembering which it is ....
The soothsaysers say: The Robin/Grill must be snowed upon three times before it is Spring. I'm not taking any chances, I dragged the grill out this afternoon. I may even get brave enough to try grilling something tonight.
Speaking of food, I think I'm going to abandon my "heart-healthy" diet and I 've developed a dynamite, convincing, fool-proof argument to convince the FOOD NAZI that I should leave the diet behind and pig out on the most unhealthy (but nonetheless delicious) foods on the face of the planet. And I owe this ingenuous argument to Sy Hirsch of the New Yorker Magazine.
So far the only traditional electronic journalist who has interviewed Hersh about his article which was just hitting the web last night has been Wolfie Blitzer of CNN. (I still say he looks like a U-boat Captian). Unless you happen to have a stomach strong enough to tolerate CNN, you might have missed the story. Here's the Yahoo! report on the story but the long and short of it is that the Bush administration, spurred on by George W's belief that "saving IRAN will be his legacy, plans to use nuclear weapons to take out Iran's nuclear development sites. Apparently many military men are convinced that the plan is absolutely NUTS and plan on resigning if the administration doesn't back off of the plans.
But wait, it gets better.
One former defense official said the military planning was premised on a belief that "a sustained bombing campaign in Iran will humiliate the religious leadership and lead the public to rise up and overthrow the government," The New Yorker pointed out.
Now, just where have we heard that before? Want some more....(in case you have a bad case of narcolepsy, this should keep you awake at night forever....)
The adviser warned that bombing Iran could provoke "a chain reaction" of attacks on American facilities and citizens throughout the world and might also reignite Hezbollah.
"If we go, the southern half of Iraq will light up like a candle," the adviser is quoted as telling The New Yorker.
So, you see, we're ALL GOING TO DIE ANYWAY if George W. has his way so what's the sense of sticking to a diet? The argument is absolutely FOOLPROOF....
OH, wait a minute....
this isn't a joke.......
on edit....here's the Crooks and Liars link to the video of Wolf's interview with Sy..here
