off for a mini- vacation of sorts. back next week.

right. well then. i thought we lived in a country with freedom of speech. my mistake.

and really take some time to read the onion. lot's of great stuff.

rabi redesigns over at wockerjabby. absolutely beautiful.


the onion released a special edition. holy fucking shit: attack on america.

i've only owned a motorcycle for a week, and it's been in my driveway all of 2 days. but i now understand the true pain of rainy days. . .

"why, grandmother! what tiny windows games you have!" "the easier to hide when the boss walks by, my dear. . ." [i appologize. i've no idea where that came from. weird.]

sad though this is, i find it important to point out the global toll. [via metafilter]

Mass. rescue team returns from a tough battle. [the group that tom works with.]

"President Bush, briefly setting aside his war planning efforts, visited the mosque at the Islamic Center of Washington yesterday to admonish the nation not to avenge last week's terrorist attacks on innocent American Arabs and Muslims." an excellent step. i only wish he had done this sooner. [via fark]

hurrah for abc news. "The president of ABC News has ordered the network to stop showing footage. . . saying repeated broadcasts of the images had become gratuitous." [via fark]

rush limbaugh responds to robertson and falwell's comments. "All I can say is I was profoundly embarrassed and disappointed by their comments. They can try to take them back all they want, but the bottom line is that their words are indefensible." [via fark]

as a side note, i heard about the falwell-robertson thing the other day and was horrified. i couldn't bring myself to actually link to their comments. at the moment, i refuse to feed into any of the hate resulting from this tragedy. on a semi-related note, there will be [at least] a temporary suspension of the doomed series. remember? focussing on hope.

i fear for our personal freedoms, our civil liberties, our sense of privacy.

tom is home safe. i can't express how proud i am to be his friend. i learned yesterday that another friend had gone to the city to do what he could to help. he, too, is home safe. he, too, is shaken by what he has seen. the strength of the people i know astounds me and humbles me. i wish there were more i could do.

the world is quiet and muted, and everything seems only half real.
