    Cheers to everyone who is blessed with a Valentine's Day sweetie. And don't worry about the rest of us... [sniff] we'll be fine... [schnerk] you kids run along and...  have fun...   ;D

    The Large Gray Cat does not wish me a Happy Valentine's Day. If he had opposable thumbs he would steal the little SD card. He wants me to drop and break my camera.

    Cheers to Bill's poll and OTHER.

    Triple-throw Whachacallit Cheers to Zhang and Zhang and Totymiyanina and Marinin for their tremendous courage. Zhang Dan captured my heart when she decided to continue last night after her fall. And while the Russians were far too cautious and stilted, watching them skate after seeing the heart-stopping footage of Totymiyanina's head smashing the ice in 2004 brought tears to my eyes. Hats off to Marinin for regaining enough confidence in himself to again work with his partner at this level of competition.

    A jeer to NPR's Renee Montagne for a significant lapse this morning in her interview with DOJ's Steve Bradbury. She allowed him to get away with the assertion that Bushco domestic spying without court supervision is consistent with Congress' authorization of the use of force to combat terrorism.
