In May this website again exceeded a million hits. Hits from 106 countries included a lot of U.S. military posts, plus Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Brazil, Mexico, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Japan, Norway, Poland, Israel, New Zealand, Argentina and Singapore.

2:35pm San Antonio police chief Albert Ortiz says two 18-wheel propane trucks were stolen here over the weekend, and 15 cannisters of gases (oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide) were stolen from a medical supply company. FBI notes a propane truck was used to blow up Khobar Towers.

I found it remarkably stupid that these guys came on the air asking the public to be on the lookout for the stolen propane tankers. They gave no description, company they were stolen from, last known license plates, nothing. Yes, they said they were releasing pictures but that did no good whatsoever to people on the road that were most likely to see the trucks as I was. Like one is going to roll through my neighborhood after I have seen the pictures on TV? And am still watching the news? I might hear it but I doubt it.
Thankfully, the manager or owner or somebody called in to Ms. Ruiz with that info later. And these people are protecting us?...

Ding dong, the witch is dead gone!
The Luddite who ruled that KTSA and other CBS-owned stations could not broadcast on the internet (Mel Karmazin) has just resigned as president of Viacom. I hope this will soon bring good news on the topic of streaming media. There is hardly a day that I don't get email from people asking how to find KTSA on the internet, and I have to reply that we were taken offline when we were acquired by Viacom.

Governing Council dissolved in Iraq A new caretaker government, carefully apportioned among Iraq's religious and ethnic groups, assumed temporary authority from the Iraqi Governing Council Tuesday after a month of wrangling.

SNAFU in Najaf: Iraqi police abandon post The U.S. adviser said no sleeping arrangements had been made for the Iraqis, they had no personal gear for their duties or changes of clothes, and they were given military rations for meals that included pork. Muslims are forbidden to eat pork.

'Sovereignty' at issue in final push for Iraq transition plan Members of UN Security Council are pressing the US to ensure that caretaker Iraqi government has full control.

Base hasn't unified behind Kerry Most polls show that at least 12 percent of all registered Democratic voters say they will vote for Mr. Bush, twice the number of Republicans who intend to vote for Mr. Kerry.

Bush and Kerry both lying in campaigns Scholars and political strategists say the ferocious Bush assault on Kerry this spring has been extraordinary, both for the volume of attacks and for the liberties the president and his campaign have taken with the facts. Though stretching the truth is hardly new in a political campaign, they say the volume of negative charges is unprecedented -- both in speeches and in advertising.

Bush likability not to be underrated Ike, JFK, Reagan, and Clinton all had it - Kerry may need it to beat Bush.

Bush may need broader campaign Despite President Bush's sagging approval ratings at a national level, strategists have long maintained he would make up the difference by working the Electoral College system in targeted battleground states -- the 18 or fewer states where the 2004 presidential race is likely to be decided.
