    Damn, Rep. Brad Miller, you earned a spot on my Shelf of Honour.  I'll put you between Boxer and Feingold, who are next to Conyers and Byrd, on the other side of Kennedy.  Your candor merits promotion to the Shelf!

    One thing that really bothers me:  Everyone says that Bush is implementing the wrong strategy; well, everyone except his wife and dog, that is.

    So why are we apparently going to do just that, put 21000 more troops (one of whom may be my son) into Iraq?  Why is it that Bush has gotten to the point that he can say it and it will happen?  At least, that is what I have been hearing from the media, my cowworkers, and everywhere but here.

    Why do you think that is?  Alternatively, please tell me that I'm wrong, Shelf-man, that the surge is not a done deal just because an arrogant tyrant uttered his edict.  Please.

    And hey, once you're on that shelf, you don't come down.  Proud of you.

      this week and next. I live about 40 miles from a military base and overheard two women talking yesterday about a husband and a son. One leaves for a 3rd deployment to Iraq on the 14th, the other leaves for his second deployment on the 20th.
