Irony of Politics

As reported and seen on CNN this morning:

Yep, no early recount allowed in Ohio as per a probably “non-activist” judge. Oh, wait, what's that breaking news item up there? Bush administration says the Ukrainian election was a sham? Funny, we didn't listen to anyone else in 2000 when they said that about our election.

Wishful Thinking: TODO List Entry for Steve Jobs

Enough said. Now with my laptop, I've got USB to hookup the iPod, USB mouse, USB to sync my calendar/contacts into my cell phone.. The phone does Bluetooth, a bluetooth mouse would be a cheap addition. If I could just get bluetooth for the iPod, I'd be set. Oh, and for my thumb drive. 😉

I bought an iPod photo this weekend. The thing rocks. Only have ~13GB of music on it currently out of the possible 40GB. 13GB would get me through 7.5 days of non-stop music without a repeat, so I think I'm set for the moment. Been pretty impressed with iTunes as well, especially the store.

Fighter Jet Strafes School

Wow, seems the Bush administration had something up their sleeves with their “No Child Left Behind” strategy: Fighter Jet Strafes New Jersey School. Seems a F-16 on a training mission shot up a school. Well, it was only 3.5 miles off the training grounds.

But when the heavy gun in the left wing of an Air National Guard F-16 fighter jet fired Wednesday night, it sent 25 rounds of 20mm ammunition smashing through the roof and zinging off the asphalt parking lot of the Little Egg Harbor Intermediate School 3 1/2 miles from the range.

Military investigators are trying to determine how it could have happened.

The plane was flying at 7,000 feet when the rounds were fired from the M61-A1 Vulcan cannon in the plane's left wing. The weapon fires 2-inch-long lead projectiles that do not explode, Webster said.

Webster said he did not know what caused the gun to fire.

I'll tell you what caused the gun to fire — the pilot probably squeezed the trigger!
