Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Sunday, 2018.01.21
Disasters may well change us deeply, but they will pass. We must keep to our
deeper convictions and remember our goals. Whether we remain ash or become the
phoenix is up to us.

From The Things-That-Make-You-Laugh-Until-You-Cry Department

This from the New York Times, of all places:

“Iraq is a long way to go for a photo op, but not for President Bush, who is pulling out all the stops to divert public attention from his failed Iraq policies and to keep Congress from demanding that he bring the troops home.”

So, what say you? The Prez has totally incompetent PR folks working for him who would suggest going to Iraq would be an excellent way to divert public attention away from…er…Iraq. Or the NYT editorial dolts still think they’re writing for their 6th grade newspaper.

There was a time when “professional” meant something.
