One of the great non sequiturs of the left is that, if the free market doesn't work perfectly, then it doesn't work at all-- and the government should step in.
Citizens of Olympia woke up this morning to find that our state captiol building has been vandalized. Some one or some group of vandals spray painted anti-war slogans and the symbol for anarchists on some pillars.
With a typically callous disregard for our state, and the people who live here, they chose to vandalize public property to try to get a message across. The message comes after the milestone of four thousand U.S. casualties in the War On Terror began. A slightly longer news story can be found here.
On Saturday night my wife and I were able to have a night out without our five children. It was a chance for us to actually enjoy pauses in conversation and enjoy ourselves. We don’t go out too often, making Saturday that much more important to us. When we left the house we did not know where we were going to go, and started to plan our evening as we drove away. We each suggested the other choose and after a brief discussion we chose to head over to Basilico Ristorante Italiano. We had tried in December to have dinner on a Sunday night there but normally they are dark on Sunday and on this particular Sunday they were having a special wine tasting prix fix menu, and as we had not previously purchased tickets, we could not get a table.Read the rest of my review here...

David Mamet: Why I Am No Longer a 'Brain-Dead Liberal'
David Mamet has been involved with such theatrical shows such as “Glengarry Glenn Ross” , “The Verdict” , and “Wag the Dog”. He has been nominated for Tony awards and Oscars. He has been a columnist for the Huffington Post. Link
It seems that he has taken a turn for the better with his ideology, and I have to guess that he is going to have people treat him differently now. I am only making a supposition, but I certainly do not think you make a change like this and not affect the people around you. The column he wrote appeared in the Village Voice.
Here are some of the highlights found at SayAnytingblog.com
I found not only that I didn’t trust the current government (that, to me, was no surprise), but that an impartial review revealed that the faults of this president—whom I, a good liberal, considered a monster—were little different from those of a president whom I revered.
Bush got us into Iraq, JFK into Vietnam. Bush stole the election in Florida; Kennedy stole his in Chicago. Bush outed a CIA agent; Kennedy left hundreds of them to die in the surf at the Bay of Pigs. Bush lied about his military service; Kennedy accepted a Pulitzer Prize for a book written by Ted Sorenson. Bush was in bed with the Saudis, Kennedy with the Mafia. Oh.
And I began to question my hatred for “the Corporations”—the hatred of which, I found, was but the flip side of my hunger for those goods and services they provide and without which we could not live.
From the Olympian
Detectives from the Thurston County Sheriff's Office continue to investigate what they believe to be human skeletal remains found near Mud Bay Road Sunday night.
A citizen reported coming across the remains on the 900 block of Delphi Road Southwest at about 7 p.m., and detectives confirmed that they appeared to be human, Lt. Chris Mealy said today.
A few items of clothing were also uncovered.
Detectives believe the skeletal remains have been there for a while since they were largely past the point of decomposition, Mealy said.
This is near a elementary school, on Delphi Road. I have to wonder how long it takes a body and clothing
to decomposearea, with rain, and plant growth and so on. I have heard of a body being found in
Capital forest about two years ago, however I am not sure how close this is to Capitol Forest.
Found this while surfing around. I can't say that I am surprised, but I hope that she resurfaces soon.
I found this article in the Olympian today about a cyclist who was hit and the driver fled the accident.
Hit-and-run leaves cyclist injured, man arrested
An Olympia man was arrested early this morning in connection with a hit-and-run accident that left a Rochester man seriously injured.
Jason R. Bailey, 36, of Rochester, was riding northbound about 9:30 Wednesday night on Old Highway 99 in Rochester, approaching 201st Avenue, when a car struck him from behind, said Trooper Christian Wilson of Washington State Patrol.
The driver fled. Bailey, who was wearing a helmet, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He is in serious condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.
After receiving an anonymous tip, police arrested Andrew E. Scott, 29, of Olympia at 4:20 this morning. He is now in the Thurston County Jail. Wilson said Scott, who was driving on a suspended license, would be charged with felony hit-and-run.
I am sad for Jason Bailey and his family and friends. I hope he gets well soon, and is able to fully recover from his injuries.
I am glad that someone was able to make an anonymous tip and perhaps have saved Jason's life. It made a difference for sure. I am glad that someone was there to watch out and do the right thing. I would very much like to follow this story as it goes along, and hopefully Mr. Scott will spend a long time in jail for doing this.
William F. Buckley Jr. Passed away this morning while at work.
He was the founder of National Review and had a column syndicated calle "On The Right". He served in the CIA and was the author of many books. He was also a delegate. Many people may remember him on the PBS show "Firing Line".
