ah, the Bush toys 21.Aug.2003 17:23

something's missing

I wonder if Bush had some of those submarines that shoot torpedoes full of marines in the Willamette today. Now those I'd like to see.

A note on Vancouver police presence 21.Aug.2003 20:12

One of these photos portrays Vancouver police in their SWAT type vehicle, patrolling the street. Indeed they were there, I saw them, and before today I didn't know that Vancouver had a SWAT team. As I've stated elsewhere, I've lived in Vancouver for 13 long unhappy years, and never, even on my darkest day, when the rain was black and death seemed more than a certainty, never did I spy the Vancouver SWAT team, nor their hellbound machine. And so, Vancouver....

I just found it pretty laughable the major city of Portland didn't seem to have the SWAT-type vehicles that Salem and Vancouver had. Katz and Kroeker have the heeby-jeebies over some protesters and yet we've got to rent our RoboCops. Not that the budget should be going toward that type of shit anyway, but it still struck me as funny, in a twisted sort of way.
