Thoughts and things of interest on this New Year:
-An Iraqi quotes Garcia Lorca, Popper and Mohamed on why 2003 was his most beautiful year
-Thousands in Hong Kong take to the streets to ask for democracy. The beginning of something to watch?
-Opposition Mayors hold two huge parties for their people in Caracas, while the Chavistas apparently have nothing to celebrate and do nothing.
-Someone managed to place in the front page of Cuba’s communist newspaper Granma a doctored picture of Fidel Castro looking like Hitler. If they find him will they kill him or just sentence him to life in prison? (Thanks Scott)
-The destruction of the Iranian city of Bam by the earthquake is so large that you can see it in satellite pictures with 1 meter resolution.
-So far, no Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) have been found in Iraq, but one thousand Scientists for Weapons of Mass Destruction (SWMD) are going to be retrained. Interesting…did they have jobs? What were they working on? How come there are no efforts by the press to talk to them? Do I ask stupid questions?
–This post in a blog makes me wonder whether I should blog less.
-An a very happy New Year to all of you, quoting T.S. Eliot as found in this blog:
“the end precedes the beginning, And the end and the beginning were always there, Before the beginning and after the end. And all is always now.” -T.S. Eliot
