I have been watching the Olympics and enjoying it for the first time in a while. There has not been any big controversy so far that I have heard of. As of this posting the good ole USA has won a total of 29 medals! That’s the most of any team so far. We have 10 gold, 10 silver, and 9 bronze medals. China has 11 gold, 7 silver, and 4 bronze for a total of 22 medals. Go USA!
IN THE NEWS: President Bush seemed closer to supporting out of country prescription drugs. He says he wants the safety of these drugs assured. I hope this happens soon. I think the American drug companies will reduce the prices as soon as it becomes legal to get them out of country.
I watched John Kerry ( Frankenkerry, Dinglekerry, etc.) speak to the VFW today. I don’t think he was as well received as Bush was last week. I think most veterans know Kerry has voted against helping the vets and military many times. He also flip flopped on things he said just 2 weeks ago. He bashed Bush today for planning to bring home 70,000 troops in 10 years. He said it gave a sign of weakness. I thought Kerry just said his plan for Iraq was to bring home troops. Is that too not a sign of weakness? He is unbelievable.
Microsoft pushes back release of SP2 again. There is a firewall problem that needs to be patched. Seems SP2’s firewall will not let some software connect. I have still not had any problems and absolutely no crashes. I like it :o)
MOVING ON: Jake Allen. Youth from the small farming community of Wellington, Kansas, who in May had graduated valedictorian from his high school where he was an athlete, competing in football, basketball and track, who was a member of the National Honor Society and planned to attend Northeast Oklahoma University in the fall, and who was active in his church's group of young men, was killed on July 5 after being hit by a train near Milan, Kansas at the age of 19. He was nude and had been deliberately tied to the railroad tracks with baling wire, shocking townspeople and confounding police officials. I really don’t understand what is happening in America. This crime had to be committed by more than one person. Pray for this mans family and that they catch the murderers who did this. GODBLESS
