Friday not-so-funnies

Oh, wait, no -- I added those.

You know what's missing from all those photos? A single tear. A sign of any emotion other than cold, calculating strategery.

Also, there are exactly two pictures of chief counter-terrorism adviser on the National Security Council, Richard Clarke -- one of which you see here. There are a few more of Prez Shrub, but not a ton. Plenty of pics of the "advisors/speechifiers" though, which were the important folk, natch. Cheney was clearly the main main in charge (as if we didn't know that already). These photos are a really interesting/disturbing look into the behind-the-scenes of that day.

Happy legal Oregon pot day!

Of course, since our ever-efficient state government is involved, we can't actually legally purchase pot at a dispensary yet (unless you already have a medical card). They're supposedly 18 months away from having pot available at liquor stores too. Evidently the current medical dispensaries that are all over the place are set to start selling soon(ish), but we'll see.

For now, it's legal to grow (up to four plants) and smoke your own though, so I'll take it. Now, where to find some good seed varieties and/or plant starts...
