Guard memos faked? There are two media camps in America
today: one that is digging into Col. Jerry Killian's memos and examining
what typewriter fonts were in use in 1972 and parsing Ben Barnes's

many deaths will it take?
Fewer and fewer Americans believe the war in Iraq is worth the human
treasure we are losing and the staggering amounts of money it is
costing. But no one can find a way out of this tragic mess, which
is why that dreaded word from the Vietnam era - quagmire - has been
resurrected. Most Washington insiders agree with Senator John McCain,
who said he believes the U.S. will be involved militarily in Iraq
for 10 or 20 more years.

fifth cool front of the summer
may cause higher than normal ozone levels again on Friday thru Sunday.
Our fifth summer cool front arrived on Monday evening, ushering
in cooler, drier air from the north. As the high pressure has moved
slowly eastward, our winds are shifting to the NE and East, allowing

and smoke from Louisiana to enter our area. Unlike last week, when
clouds saved us from going over 85 ppb., the latest forecast from
the National Weather Service calls for mostly clear conditions through
Abundant sunshine, mixed with the imported pollution and our small
amount of local pollution will likely cause high ozone through Saturday
or Sunday. Our winds are forecast to switch to the west and southeast
by Sunday afternoon which should decrease ozone levels.
