02/16/2002 Are we over-reacting? A suspicious package that turned out to be a garden sprinkler shut down LAX operations in a terminal for an hour, delaying flights. How anyone could mistake a garden sprinkler for a bomb is beyond me. Maybe we need to train LAX security people or replace them with a better quality of personnel. Oops, now that they are Federal employees, we can't fire them. Maybe we should just send them to gardening classes! Well, you get what you pay for. http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/nm/20020213/ts/airlines_lax_dc.html
Maybe this should have happened to Taliban John! Sameer Mohammed Ahmed al-Hada, was cornered by the police and blew himself up with a hand grenade. Thankfully, no police officers were hurt. His home phone is suspected as being a central information-clearing house for terrorist messages during the Cole and World Trade Center attacks. His wife is in jail. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=514&u=/ap/yemen_al_qaida
Arafat should learn some real gun control! Yasser pulled a gun on a security chief during an argument and dropped it. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,45451,00.html
Now we should REALLY enforce the law! Attorney General John Ashcroft will begin to prosecute illegal aliens who attempt to obtain guns. It's about time we deal with all the illegals and leave law-abiding CITIZENS rights intact. Thank you Attorney General Ashcroft. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,45520,00.html
Nikolay Soltys saved us a lot of money! He hung himself in his cell. After he butchered his family, he deserved a lot worse. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,45486,00.html
02/02/2002 Groundhog Day:
Punxsutawney Phil's Proclamation:
``Thank God I live in the land of the free and the brave,
and I live in a burrow and not in a cave.
I've been sleepin', been noddin',
been livin' better than bin Laden.''
Six more weeks of winter from a very patriotic groundhog in Punxsutawney, Pa.
