QUOTE OF THE DAY
President Bush Discusses the Budget and the Emergency Supplemental North Portico

THE PRESIDENT: I want to thank the Republican leadership and the Republican members of Congress for coming down to have a very frank and open discussion about issues facing our country. Yesterday I gave a speech, making it clear that I'll veto a bill that restricts our commanders on the ground in Iraq, a bill that doesn't fund our troops, a bill that's got too much spending on it. I made that clear to the members.

We stand united in saying loud and clear that when we've got a troop in harm's way, we expect that troop to be fully funded; and we've got commanders making tough decisions on the ground, we expect there to be no strings on our commanders; and that we expect the Congress to be wise about how they spend the people's money.

The President told the men, "É I would like to offer a gesture to help atone for all the unreturned salutes and unforgivable indignities. And so, on behalf of the office I hold, and a country that honors you, I salute you for the service to the United States of America." White House photo by Eric Draper

Nancy's got her pop-beads on at the dinner!! She looks like she's going to a funeral in that plain black dress! If she wanted to wear a black dress it should have been at least one that had more of a 'dinner party' look!

Update on dad. They managed to make him more comfortable doing something called I think flatulence tubing which helped dissipate the wind in his stomach and assist the bowel in working. He is still not completely cleared out but is much more comfortable.

There is still some arguing amongst the various medical teams as to which problem to deal with first the stomach or the broken limbs. At present medical is winning as the anesthetist does not want to put him under until the stomach is much flatter and therefore more room in the chest cavity for breathing.

He is back on food so unlikely he will be operated on tomorrow. So I suspect they want to get his bowels working with normal food and drink etc over the weekend to probably think of operating on Monday. I think we will know more when the surgical team visits him today(tomorrow) which could mean another night visit as the doctors were constantly visiting him during the night yesterday.

RE: Congressional Gold Medal


***

One idiot news "reporter" tonight said that all these airmen received the Congressional Medal of Honor [which is actually awarded by the President] today. Anyone reporting on the doings of our national politicians who does not know the difference probably reports a whole lot of other news wrongly on a daily basis.

Beautiful photos, snugs

The Childrens Miracle Network is an International fundraising effort for childrens hospitals, generally one in every city. The fundraising activities go on all year and culminate in a huge telethon on a Sunday in June. Each hospital does local programming during the day, asking for funds, and network hosts broadcast to all the local stations at intervals.

These children have probably been on TV in their own cities talking about their particular challenges with disease or defect or injury.
