Rain causing concern at Hill Country vineyards

Gas blamed for 3 train wreck deaths Autopsies showed that a railroad crewman and two southwest Bexar County residents who lived near the tracks died from breathing the poisonous gas that escaped when two freight trains collided at 5 a.m. Monday, a medical examiner said. More than 40 other people who breathed the fumes reported injuries, and five remained hospitalized.

Didn't our city hall say that SA was one of the best prepared cities in the US to deal with a terrorist attack? If that's the case, think of how many people would have died from a simple infusion of chlorine downtown. If they couldn't get to the people near this last train wreck for 6 hours.. imagine how many people would die had this happened downtown.
I would imagine this incident could give a terrorist a great deal of encouragement knowing that a simple chemical has this kind of potential with a failed response team.... and it isn't near as serious as a bomb! Scary!

Iraq...

ON MY SHOW 2:10pm
Halliburton whistleblowers say millions wasted in Iraq New testimony from former Halliburton workers and congressional auditors released in Washington, D.C., this week has revealed millions of dollars worth of wasteful practices, major over billing and virtually no oversight of the company's work to support the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq in March 2003.

US military lowers profile in Iraq "..moving convoys at night and scaling back its offensive operations."

  Construction in Iraq Is Stalled
More than a year into an effort that has been likened to the Marshall Plan, fewer than 140 of 2,300 construction projects are under way in Iraq.

 

Saddam becomes Iraqis' prisoner Legal custody of Saddam Hussein and 11 others was transferred today to the Iraqis, a first step toward the ousted dictator's expected trial for crimes against humanity. Iraq's new national security adviser said the Iraqi Special Tribunal would be able to impose the death penalty.

Halliburton: America's Favorite Contractor
Thanks, David P.

New Iraq and the Same Old Same Old Former Iraq viceroy L. Paul Bremer's heels had barely scuttered across the tarmac to his plane Monday when the new Iraqi government proudly unfurled the nation's flag, but it was the old red-and-green and-black flag of yore.

Net attack aimed at banking data Computer security experts warned Tuesday of another new Internet threat that can steal the passwords and account information of people who bank online -- the second such discovery in a week. The bug targets users of Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer browser. Experts said users can protect themselves from the bug by using a non-Microsoft Corp. browser or by using software to block pop-ups. Internet Explorer users are immune if they download and install a patch that was released in April.

FBI terrorist suspect got Haz-Mat license

Jack Wheeler - Washington Times
Harry Potter and Bill Clinton Bill Clinton is such a repulsive subject I never thought I would ever write about him again after he was replaced by a man of decency and integrity in the White House. Yet the sight of all those women lining up to buy his book, to get that book autographed by a serial abuser of women, like prostitutes idolizing their abusive pimp, is sadly illustrative of a bizarre truth.
