Countdown

Not a lot happening today, but a lot of things are coming soon. Heads up.

The shuttle's landing has been put off for a day, so I guess I'll put away my rabbit's foot for a little while.

Israel is going to be pulling out Jewish settlements from the Gaza Strip in one week. This is not the comprehensive peace that the region needs, but its a vital step. Putting a few thousand right-wing Jewish Settlers in with a couple of million Palestinians is madness. But the act is going to seriously strain Israel internally. Something to watch.

Also due on August 15 is the draft of Iraq Constitution. Writing an Iraq Constitution is like juggling chainsaws while sitting on a unicycle that's on a tite rope that's over a pool of sharks. In other words, it is hard. I'll sure it will turn out fine They are rushing to finish in time and everyone knows that being rushed leads to good results. Also, the rest of the Iraq War has gone so well, I'm sure this part will go a smooth as silk.

juggling chainsaws while sitting on a unicycle that's on a tite rope that's over a pool of sharks is not hard, it's just risky. I never tried that shark part. They probably eat a lot and permits will be nasty.
