Does sticking to the June 30 deadline to turn Iraq over to an Iraqi
government still make sense?
The animated poll failed.
It didn't show up on this page when a browser had Java Script disabled.
A lot of people don't know how to change that setting. I'm not gonna
battle the world on this one so I am tossing the (Neomyz brand) animated
poll and going back to the original
(Freepolls brand) software
which has its own sometimes-fatal flaws, such as the poll server occasionally
going cannibalistic and eating the poll. But when it works, it does
show percentages and vote counts, and it does allows Comments, which
is a very popular feature. So it's back to the original poll, warts
an' all, and I will still be on the lookout for better poll software.
My local site host SATexas.com is not the problem. SATexas.com does
great. The problem is with an outside company that runs poll servers
in Colorado (which is why the Comments display Mountain Standard Time,
which is stupid but cannot be changed).
works for KBR The US citizen taken hostage Friday in Iraq is
a former dairy farmer who hired on with contractor Kellogg, Brown &
Root to rebuild his family's finances
"He used to drive a milk truck and he had a dairy, and it wasn't
paying off," said Hamill, 92. "He's got a family to support
and he wanted to help them people, too. . . . Jobs was kind of scarce,
and he has two children in school. It's hard, you know?"

You should do something about your links to story such as "Bridges
When us folks click on one of your seemingly interesting stories we find
out they're nothing more than a waste of time because there is a registration
Is there anything that can be done on your end to ease this process?
Maybe Matt Drudge can help on this one...
Still love your stuff,
Well heck, Walter,
I can't get us all free lunch all the time. I have to jump thru the
mini-registration hoops because I want the information.
I also dislike registering for a news article when I click on one of your
links to an interesting headline. Unlike our pal Walter S., I have found
way around it rather than blame you...
I just take a few key words or phrases from your website and then use
Google to search their news articles
and find many sources for the same story.
I provided two links for Walter S. so he may read the articles without
registering if he so desires. Forget the fact that it probably takes less
time to register to The Washington Post than the amount of time you spend
searching Google and getting the article from another site.. it's the
principle that really matters.

I love your show and your website, but (no offense to Eliza) I really
miss the 3 hour show. Your show is my favorite of all radio-land.
Google is a good idea,
Erica. Thanks for the help. I should have thought of that and didn't.
As for the 3 hour versus 2 hour show, two is better for me.
