Honoring those fallen on Septmeber 11, 2001

I was serfing through verious blogs the other night when I ran across this site,
I can not find any words that can come close to expressing what I would like to say. Everything I attempt to come up with saying only seems so vain and trivial. But this is not about me.
One of the victims of the terrorist attack of 9/11/2001 was Glenn WIlkinson. He was a lieutenant with the New York Fire Department.
This short tribute is an attempt to pay respect to his effort, life and sacrifice he made on 9/11.

Lt. Glenn Wilkinson, age 46.
Place killed: World Trade Center.
Resident of Bayport, N.Y. (USA).

Blogs for Bush: The White House Of The Blogosphere: Federal Judge Rules In Favor of Terrorists

I know this may be a heated topic but oh well, sometimes we need to stir it up and or keep it going. I feel that some things need to be done in order of protecting our country. I know someone will immediately ask then where do we stop, where do we draw the line. That is something that needs to be addressed regarding that case or situation. I think that in this case that wire tapping is not "too intrusive" when it comes to the safety of our nation here in our country. This is sad from my point of view.

BayouBuzz - Mayor White To Louisiana, New Orleans Evacuees: Get A Job

I don't know anything about the author of this writing. I was wondering what others may think from what they hear or what they know is going on in the big scheme of things. I read everyday and he, Schroeder, keeps up with what is going on in New Orleans. If anyone knows or has any comments please post.

Quote of the Day that I just couldn't pass up

I just could not let this quote I found go by without giving it some more coverage since it appears to me to be so very true. At least when it comes to the news media.

Television is a new medium. It's called a medium because nothing is well-done.

Lieberman Launches Independent Campaign

I am often worried when a politician suddenly announces that he/she is now an independent. How can they so suddenly pull away from their party that has supported them for so long. It often seems to me that the time has come for them to quietly ride off into the sunset. Can they not see or understand that their time has come to an end. How often has an independent actually won the race they are in. I am not saying that it is totally wrong by any means. Just that some people need to know when to hang it up.

British Police Foil Airplane Bomb Plot

Much appreciation goes out to the efforts of those that were involved in stopping this terrorist attack on the airlines recently. So many suspects were involved in an attempt to blow up a great number of planes. The devistation would have been horrific.

Bebo (Still) For Sale

I had no idea there was an English version of Myspace. It appears to have taken over myspace as far as the number of subscribed users. If anyone out ther has more than $750 million you can possibly buy it.

Bebo (Still) For Sale: "Lots of news on Bebo today, which just surpassed Myspace in UK traffic. The Financial Times is reporting that the company is in acquisition talks with Viacom, the owner of MTV and other cable stations. This is the third try for Viacom, which lost out when bidding for both Myspace and Facebook (with Facebook reportedly shunning an offer of at least $750 million). Bebo seems to be on a roadshow of sorts through the UK, meeting with potential partners and suitors. Founder Michael Birch told the Financial Times that “he was in no hurry to sell – his company was still growing rapidly”. He also mentioned, however, that the previous rumor about BT offering £300 million for Bebo sparked a ton of interest in the company. Michael, or his VCs, still seems to think that £300 million is way too low and are holding out for more. When asked about a sale, he said “If I sell it, I’d have to start from scratch.” Translation: “Give me a billion dollars please.” Bebo Tags: via"
