Iraq column by Viet Nam vet Bruce Patterson
Alive When I hear baby boomer politicians, all high and
mighty, rhapsodizing about the noble enterprise of war, the pride and
the glory and the moral cleansing provided by blood sacrifice on the
field of battle, I feel like I'm trapped in a crazy man's time warp.
force retreat from wide-ranging plans for Iraq
The United States has backed away from several of its more ambitious
initiatives to transform Iraq's economy, political system and security

Viet Nam vet Anthony Zinni, another war on shaky territory
Anthony C. Zinni's opposition to U.S. policy on Iraq began on the
monsoon-ridden afternoon of Nov. 3, 1970. He was lying on a Vietnamese
mountainside west of Da Nang, three rounds from an AK-47 assault rifle

I have been wanting to tell you about my experience with Time Warner
Roadrunner. It took me a while to decide to get Roadrunner,
but finally did.
You were right about the speed, it's day and nite compaired to dialup
svc. Recently I went to a friends house to visit and they still have
dial up svc. I was helping them with some software they wanted to
download from the net and man, did it drag on to get the download
started, then got booted off before the download finished.
I don't miss those days of dial up svc. As you say in your commercial,
"I don't know what I would do without Roadrunner!" I agree
with you. Thanks for opening my eyes to Roadrunner.

I will apologize to the nation, and I will not trust the Bush administration
We are well past that 6 month period, and Mr. O'Reilly has not given
us his apology.

Can anyone point
me to a place where the O'Reilly statement can be verified? If so,
I'd like to call up ol' Bill and see what he has to say about it.
I realize that we all say dumb stuff, me more frequently than some
others, but I'd still call. (I have run this past www.snopes.com
