It makes me even more excited that I'm going to be meeting her on the Sea Socks cruise next month. I'm going to be able to deduct that trip as a business expense pretty soon, there will be so much networking going on! If there's any 23-year-old who can handle Knits, it's Eunny.
As for the war, well...I'm going to spend some time today praying for the families of everyone affected by that disgrace of a debacle. I think about this a lot, but today especially - what a different world we'd be living in if Al Gore had taken the election in 2000. The Iraq war never would've happened, and so many US servicemen & women (and Iraqi civilians) would still be alive and with their families. Yes, Saddam would probably still be in power, but it's hard to believe the Iraqi people are better off today. As one Iraqi citizen I heard interviewed explained, "Back then we had one Saddam. Today we have one hundred." So many dollars and lives wasted on this war (and when I say wasted, I do NOT at all discount the sacrifices of our troops, who are doing their jobs as best they can - particularly the National Guard troops who never signed up to fight a civil war in another country). It's a disgrace to this country and seriously calls into question our position in the world as the moral authority. I don't think that the current government, with scandal after scandal, can be called a moral authority on anything. They should be ashamed of themselves for representing themselves as the "moral" party and then behaving like criminals after countless people voted for them, expecting them to run this country with dignity and a higher moral standard. Hah!
Okay, I'm done. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest! I need a chocolate chip cookie.
