There I was watching C-SPAN as I do, and Brian Lamb was doing one of his terrific Q & A sessions with an unfamiliar - to me - guest.
Turns out Randi Rhodes is a talk radio person with skills out of the park. I was entralled and am desperately trying to find her call letters. She says what I think and often say, but to a much smaller audience.
Radio syndication is an iffy thing in Hawaii.We have great weather and people but sometimes distance has a price.
Washington Journal I love you; it's the only good thing for not always being able to sleep through the night. Talk about addictive - I've occasionally wakened after a great night's sleep and said, darn I missed Washington Journal.

So many new experiences this year - my first blog and connecting with people who believe as I do about this war.
I'll soon be traveling and have too much stuff to carry my laptop. Besides maybe a few days away will be good, remembering what it used to be like before the world became a small community.
No secrets anymore. When Gov. Bill Richardson can't even fudge on his youthful athletic prowess, it's time for all politicians to get smart. IT'S NOT THE CRIME IT'S THE COVERUP!
(Okay, sometimes it's the crime, Duke.)
From Hawaii I say,
Hau'oli Makahiki Hou

What is it about power that corrupts? I mean you have it, why abuse it?
Because you can.
Because it's addictive and you move the boundaries in order to keep it.
You want more, like any drug it's never enough.
Or maybe too long away from reality and the colors change.
When winning is more important than doing the end is in sight.
The Bush Administration is like a termite-riddled house.
You can see some of the rot but what's underneath is the serious problem.
Thank you Pat Fitzgerald, Cindy Sheehan and Jack Murtha.

Remember the Blue Brothers, on a mission from God? It was funny then but it sure isn't now.
I spend all my free time joining and talking to the community that has always known that this war is about oil and one-upping daddy and arrogance and stupidity. But the government when it chooses to run amok has great power to silence dissenters. For a while. Then it becomes a cacophony of outrage.
All I want for Christmas is sanity in our leaders.
