Borders Strike Settled!
Apparently, the workers got quite a bit of what they were asking for. Congratulations!

Dean calls for government support of beef industry
Just a reminder of whose side he's on. An industry that has consistently and systematically put profits ahead of the health of consumers, the rights of workers, and the humane treatment of animals finally gets a well-deserved comeuppance--and Dr. Dean wants to bail them out. Screw them, I say, and Dean too. The death of the American beef industry would be of far greater benefit to the future of the nation and the world than was the capture of Saddam Hussein. This statement by Dean reminds me of Gore's calling for opening up the strategic oil reserve back in 2000 because gas was selling for a little more than its normal planet-destroying price--a clear demonstration of a total lack of principles. If Dean is on the side of the beef industry, he's NOT on your side.

Greetings from Arnoldfornia!
It's been down in the 30's at night, and now it's raining. But I did go down to Point Lobos, south of Monterrey, with my brother yesterday. We saw seals frollicking in the surf and other cool things. Pictures later. My brother was in an accident about a week ago, and his VW was totalled. He's been renting a Toyota Prius hybrid, and is now thinking of buying one.
