"I copy that" is walkie-talkie talk for - I understand, will do, gotcha, ok, alright, yup, uh-huh, and much more depending on the inflection of the voice.

long day, me tired. tomorrow laundry, pack, drink, plan, read. weee...

and now for annoying news -

Sad: Not only for the obvious ecological impact - but because we should be moving towards NEW fuels and power - Senate votes to open oil drilling in the alaska wildlife preserve.

Pathetic: A new Gallup Poll released today shows that while Americans have very negative opinions of Syria, North Korea, and Iran by very wide margins they do not want to go to war with them... As usual these days, sharp partisan splits are apparent. Some 46% of Republicans would support military action against North Korea, compared with just 26% of independents and 23% of Democrats. For Iran it breaks down similarly (43%-23%-17%) and Syria (39%-23%-13%).

Iraq needed fuel. Halliburton Co. was ordered to get it there — quick. So the Houston-based contractor charged the Pentagon $27.5 million to ship $82,100 worth of cooking and heating fuel.
In the latest revelation about the company's oft-criticized performance in Iraq, a Pentagon audit report disclosed Monday showed Halliburton subsidiary KBR spent $82,100 to buy liquefied petroleum gas, better-known as LPG, in Kuwait and then 335 times that number to transport the fuel into violence-ridden Iraq.

On a whole 'nuther note - I have begun to like graffiti more.
get me out.
I appreciate it more now, I don't know why - maybe because I look at it more as an art than vandalism. The best stuff is done to improve the building, not vandalize it.

happy st. patricks day. (green beer, yay)
