River Of Toys Concert

Last night we took our son to see the River of Toys concert at the Pageant here in St.Louis. A fantastic show run by one of the local radio stations in conjunction with the US Marine Corp's Toys for Tots program. The performers were:

Natasha Bedingfield
Anna Nalick
Vertical Horizon
Ben Folds
Collective Soul

The show was awesome and it was our son's first concert.

Vatican defends banning singer who supports condoms - Yahoo! News

Unbelievable but I guess it really isn't. It's more important to let people contract aids than the chance that they might stop a pregnancy with a condom.

Democratic hawk presses for U.S. Iraq pullout

Funny how the Republican leadership is trying to spin that a retired Marine Colonel, who served for 37 years is soft and doesn't care about America.

DOD health official recommends increase in Tricare premiums

I remember when I joined in 1984 that if I was to stay in 20 years and retire I would have free healthcare for me and my family. Guess a promise isn't worth much when it comes to the government.

After Six Decades as the U.S. Military's Gateway to Europe, Rhein-Main Base Closing

We spent 4 years at Rhein Main, October 1993 - October 1997. That was probably the busiest 4 years of my Air Force career. So much happened while I was there. It saddens me to know that end is so close now. I was part of the original AMC transition team when it was finally announced that it would completely close. I was able to travel back over there 4 times before moving on to another job in the headquarters. So much history was made there and I feel pride in knowning that I was part of it. Rhein Main will be missed and things will never be quite the same knowing it's gone.

Pentagon says it has found no evidence Atta identified before 2001 attacks

Those on the right were so quick to dismiss the Downing Street memos because the reporter couldn't produce an original copy of them. But the right were sure quick to embrace Weldon's claim yet he has no copy of what he says he saw. Now the Pentagon says they have no evidence of his claim. Hmmmm...........

HoustonChronicle.com - Poor in Texas to see higher power bills

Lets see...people voluntarily send extra money in with their electricity bill to help poor people. The government then kills the program and takes the money for some other need. Nothing like compassionate conservatism is there? How much pork is still in the budget for their friends that they didn't cut? Shameful but typical.
