Saddam Hussein is dead

Does anyone get the Saddam thing? I certainly don't. Of all the corrupt dictators there are in the world, why did we decide that we had to go after this one? I don't get it. They kill him during the Christmas season. People will feel sympathy for him.

And he was found guilty of killing Kurds in for deaths of 148 Shiites in 1982? According to Samantha Power's book, "A Problem from Hell" which won a Pulitzer, we were selling him the chemicals knowing that they might be used to gas the Kurds. All we did was look the other way. We could have elected to not sell him the chemicals, but the chemical companies were worried that it might hurt their bottom line. So they just winked and looked the other way.

Now he's dead. Are we ever going to find out the real reason we went to Iraq and went after Saddam?

Vegetarians have a higher IQ

Hmm.... here is a study that shows people who become vegetarians are smarter than average and have better educations than the average person. It doesn't say if one causes the other or if it is a result. Either way, interesting article and I'm glad I'm a vegetarian! Can't stand the thought of eating meat...

Tom Delay on Hardball?

Can someone please tell me why the Chris Matthews' fill in tonight on Hardball ( sorry, I don't know his name) was interviewing Tom Delay on TV tonight? Why should this crook be given air time to talk to the American public? And that questions were so software and pandering it was embarrassing!

Bad Me!

I have been soooo busy, I've not had time to keep up my blog. Now that the election is over, and the Republican's have lost some of their stangle-hold on this country, I have to rethink what direction I want to go with my blog. I have been exploring Flickr and Picasa. I have a deadline for major project tonight and need to close for now to get it done. I'm looking forward though to getting caught up on my blog!

Check out this: It puts things into perspective. Especially the China thing. I remember Thomas Friedman saying in his book, " The World Is Flat." If the Chinese education just 10% of their population, that is more people than all of the US. This example shows that nicely. If they education just their top students, that's more than all of the people in the United States. As far as companies outsourcing and our hopes for our children and their futures, that should be a wake up call to our citizens.

Hopefully it will be a slow awakening and people won't ignore the implications.
