In other news not concerning anything to do with any war, protest, or arrest...

I finally got the letter I've been excitedly anticipating the past couple weeks from the CA DMV. Know what it was? More paperwork.

Dammit, I thought I'd called them to *prevent* this crap.

The daily news feed.

Ok, this article is priceless, especially with the opening paragraph:

Two weeks into the war in Iraq, some senior military commanders are beginning to admit that American understanding of the Arab world is limited and that they still have to convince the Iraqis that they are liberators, not occupiers.

Of course, you know how much I love quotes. But going nicely with the last paragraph...

US President George W Bush, 31 March:

We're coming with a mighty force to end the reign of your oppressors. We are coming to bring you food and medicine and a better life. And we are coming and we will not stop, we will not relent until your country is free.

In other news, it seems that advertising agencies are advising against national branding in Western products.

For some reason, the US and the UK believe that we should train for the incredibly frequent occurence of joint terror attacks. Of course, I like how the first paragraph speaks of "cyber-electronic" attacks.. no more comment needed.

Ok, who in the Onion wrote today's news? Quit that! War is serious business and I'm laughing!
