This is my last post for a few days. Y'all keep an eye on the miscreants in Washington and on Wall Street while I'm celebrating a wedding, okay?
And a hearty thanks to all the well-wishers who've sent good cheer to the happy couple!
And for Stars Over Washington, I'm sorry this offering has to be negative, but John Pilger's article is worth noting in these harrowing times. After all, if neocon hawks couldn't foment unrest and chaos, they'd have no reason to exist and less gold to hoard:
