This piece by Frank Rich (from New York Magazine) reminds me of a quote:

"America is not at war, the Marine Corps is at war; America is at the mall." - Hand written sign found inside a US Military base in Ramadi, Iraq

From the Link:
"Sacrifice was high among the unifying ideals that many Americans hoped would emerge from the rubble of ground zero, where so many Good Samaritans had practiced it. But the president scuttled the notion on the first weekend after the attack, telling Americans that it was his “hope” that “they make no sacrifice whatsoever” beyond, perhaps, tolerating enhanced airline security. Few leaders in either party contradicted him. Bush would soon implore us to “get down to Disney World in Florida” and would even lend his image to a travel-industry ad promoting tourism. Our marching orders were to go shopping."

Free shipping on +Talon Rescue 's TRECK at Chief Supply means you can get a TRECK for just $10.99!

Seriously, I have two of these things and I'm in love with them.

(Full Disclosure: I do not work for Talon nor was I paid to endorse their product. I did receive demo versions of the TRECK many months ago and after testing it I just genuinely believe in the simplicity and genius of the TRECK's design.)

Tropical Storm Don has really fuckered up my weekend plans. Heading to Mobile, Alabama to dock until we can get back to Sabine Pass, Texas. Was supposed to have a crew change on Thursday night/Friday morning. Looks like that's gonna be put off for a few days.

"So, after every rain the rainbow is God saying "I won't kill everyone with another flood?'"
"Yup."
"How is that comforting? It's like there is a guy who comes by a couple times a month, strokes a loaded gun for six hours, says 'I'm not gonna kill everyone again!' then leaves."
