Let's get this over with.

Threats are being made that if Saddam Hussein is executed the United States will be targeted for more attacks.

I would think if the USA would grow some "orbital fortitude" this could be taken care of in a matter of weeks.

Target every single mosque in Iraq and let the terrorists know they are targeted. Let them know that for every American death, a mosque will disappear from the landscape and then follow through with it.

Not fair to target religion you say?? Well if we are attacked in the name of a religious jihad, the religious icons need to be removed. If there really are moderate Muslims out there, maybe they should come forward and stop those that have supposedly "hijacked their religion"

MN Gophers are giving up???

The Grand Forks Herald said today:

"The University of Minnesota won't compete against UND in any sport except men's and women's hockey because of UND's continued use of the Fighting Sioux nickname, the school's athletic director said Monday."

Well, if ya can't beat 'em on the playing field, beat on 'em in the boardroom?

Angels at the post office.

This came in an email today:

A friend forwarded this to me and it's such an adorable little story that I had to forward it on....

Our dog Abbey died Aug. 23, and the day after Abbey died, my 4 year old, Meredith, was SO upset. She wanted to write a letter to God so that God would recognize Abbey in heaven. She told me what to write, and I did.

Then she put 2 pictures of Abbey in the envelope. We addressed it to God in Heaven, put two stamps on it (because, as she said, it could be a long way to heaven). We put our return address on it, and I let her put it in the drop box at the post office that afternoon. She was absolutely sure that letter would get to heaven, and I wasn't about to disillusion her.

So today is Labor Day. We took the kids to the museum in Austin, and when we came home, there was a package wrapped in gold on our front porch. It was addressed to Mer. So, she took it inside and opened it.

Inside was a book, When Your Pet Dies, by Mr. Rogers (Fred Rogers). On the front cover was the letter we had written to God, in its envelope (opened). On the opposite page was one of the pictures of Abbey taped on the page. On the back page was the other picture of Abbey, and this handwritten note on pink paper:

"Dear Mer,
I know that you will be happy to find out that Abbey
arrived safely and
soundly in heaven. Having the
pictures you sent to me was a big help!
I recognized
Abbey right away!

You know, Mer, she isn't sick anymore. Her spirit
is here with me
(-just like it stays in your heart-)
young and running and playing.
Abbey loved being
your dog, you know. Since we don't need our

bodies in heaven, I don't have any pockets to keep
things in-- so I
am sending you your beautiful letter
back with the pictures--so that
you will have this little
memory book to keep.

One of my angels is taking care of this for me. I hope
this little
book will help. Thank you for your beautiful
letter. Thank your
mother for sending it. What a wonderful
mother you have. I picked
her especially for you.

God blesses you every day and remember, I love you
very much. By
the way, I am in heaven and everywhere
there is love.

God, and one of his special angels (who wrote this letter
after God
told HER the words)."

How wonderful is that! I never knew there were angels working the post office!

keep yer eyes dry !
