Happy New Year, LOL!!!!
don't know what a Bew is!
To the best of my knowledge, there was no contest last week!
Congratulations to ALL posters!
Good Morning AB
I too hope for a better '07
Good morning and Happy New Year to you, too!
Good morning AB, and everyone. Congratulations to everyone for last week.
Happy New Year 2007? Or, I'm glad 2006 is over. I'm not sure which one applies more.
Lugar on Fox News? Ugh.
:-) Better New Year?
Yes thats right folks; its stampede time!
Will it be at the counterclockwise walk around the rock to turn back time? Will it be at the symbolic stoning ritual where all good Muslims throw rocks at a pillar representing women? Maybe the Wahabbi wing of the Sunni Muslims that run Saudi Arabia will open fire on the Shiites if they get uppity like in '87. Well just have to wait and see.
2006: 345 die in a crush during a stone-throwing ritual
2004: 251 trampled to death in stampede
2003: 14 are crushed to death
2001: 35 die in stampede
1998: At least 118 trampled to death
1997: 343 pilgrims die and 1,500 injured in fire
1994: 270 killed in stampede
1990: 1,426 pilgrims killed in tunnel leading to holy sites (crushed? Stampeded? Trampled?)
1987: 400 die as Saudi authorities confront pro-Iranian demonstration
More likely that the b and n keys are right up against each other, but your answer is better, literally!
Here 's this sunday's Media Nuggets
###### Hillary Clinton building media-castle for 2008, placing her favs @ CBS - 1. CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who was her speech writer & policy-crafter & 2. Bill Clinton's pal & Lincoln bedroom guest Rick Kaplan.
###### "Weasel 61" & "Broomstick 11" - Soldiers' creative Code Naming! U.S. Army Captain Ben explains. Hillaryous! (Bagdad hotel balcony media made a judicious decision not to report this.)
###### MSNBC's Dan Abrams days are numbered? Time Magazine signs up Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol as "part-time contributor". ABC.Com signs up Hugh Hewitt as weekly contributor. Fox signs up Sean Hannity for Hannity's America show on sundays @ 9pm ET starting next sunday (H&C took the maximum ratings slide). Tiki Barber leaving FOX News to join ABC's Good Morning America.
###### MSM - Country on Wrong track. Nope. South & West track. Census Bureau 2006 state population estimates show that Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, Texas and Utah certain to gain at least one seat. Texas could pick up as many as 4 congressional seats; New York and Ohio could lose 2 seats. The South is rising again.
###### Gallop Poll MSM won't report - Even after all this BDS, President Bush is the Most Admired - Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Colin Powell, John McCain, Al Gore all have to combine themselves to even match to President's level.
###### Christmas discount, MSM style! The Minneapolis Star Tribune Goes In A Half-Price Fire Sale.
###### Meanwhile, Baltimore Sun Reporters and employees - are nervous about their paper's future.
###### Reuterville or traitorville? - The Reuters Connection to Haditha.
###### Newmedia surpasses Enemedia - US Surpasses 9-11 Deaths.
###### No Controlling authority! - AP and E&P: Perfect "Liars" Together.
###### NYTimes Caught in Abortion-Promoting Whopper Infanticide Portrayed as Abortion. - NYTimes Ombudsman admits.
###### :-) - Woodward Releases Embargoed Chat with Saddam, in which the dictator questioned U.S. President George Bush's rationale for invading Iraq.
See U all in 2007!
It seems that Wolfie has a representative from Iraq on his show every week. Does anyone watch these interviews?
Thanks for the thread AB and happy New Year!
Happy New Year, Alas.
Since my day begins with Lugar and Vilsack, I may fall asleep with my head on the keyboard.
