good news, bad news...

The good news is that I was light by five pounds this morning...

The bad news is I am not sure if that is actual weight loss, and whether or not it will keep up until I actually get to my alledged goal....

But along the way there is that idea that I do not have to eat - just because traditionally americans have always super-sized it... So the apparent solution space is to work on organizing eating what i need to eat, and not just acting like an american...

Should American Law Be Legal In America? (DOJ Dodge)

Blink:
Last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena for any of Karl Rove's emails in the Department's possession that might be relevant to the U.S. attorney firings. The deadline was 2 PM yesterday. The deadline came and went. And now Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT) and ranking member Arlen Specter (R-PA) are angry.

“You ignored the subpoena, did not come forward today, did not produce the documents and did not even offer an explanation for your noncompliance,” the senators wrote in a lettter to Alberto Gonzales today. “Your action today is in defiance of the Committee’s subpoena without explanation of any legal basis for doing so.”

"We are largely fighting today's global counterinsurgency with a force that was not designed for a global counterinsurgency." - Lute, as reported by The Tampa (Fla.) Tribune, Aug. 26, 2004.

"We can bomb training camps, and we can hunt down the enemy, but we can't bomb the Internet." - Lute, as reported by the American Forces Press Service April 24, 2007.
