Democracy, Late to Dinner as Usual
By one o'clock in Iraq, at least 27 Iraqis already lay dead. By the end of the day, Al'jazeera reports over 40 dead. As Zarqawi threatened the streets would run with the blood of the electors, this seems to be a victory for the pro-occupation forces, the Americans, and others involved in "securing Iraq." Up to 8 million are expected to be counted in the vote, when the final numbers come back, which officials tell us could take up to ten days.

Going to Mass, with the Mayor
I was running a little late, as I had to fix my light. Normally, I wouldn't be late for such a small detail, but at this Critical Mass, riders were asked to be VERY LEGAL, as the MAYOR was riding with us. That's right, I said the mayor; at Critical Mass. I've never heard of such a thing before, so I just HAD to be there! When I got to the North Park Blocks, the Mass was still waiting for stragglers like myself, so I was in luck. I spotted Mayor Potter right away, and he wasn't busy, so I approached him, shook his hand, and thanked him for riding with us. He was very cordial, although he seemed rather nervous. I would be too, if I were a public figure, taking such a big risk.

Blockbuster Inc. Pushes Army National Guard Recruitment
On a recent trip to blockbuster, I discovered that they are purposefully putting Army recruitment flyers inside video boxes to tell you how great joining the military is. What they don't tell you, is that you will be on the first plane to Iraq if you sign up. They only show you pictures of military personnel with all their limbs still attached. I wonder if they used pictures like this(above) if they would have the same effect?

FBI Agent offers weak justification for Portland's JTTF participation
At some point in the near future, the Portland City Council will vote as to whether or not Portland will continue its participation with the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
