Scenes from the front line of life in Portland, Oregon, USA.

Still all fuzzy in the head today (even though I am feeling a bit better), so I'm not in the greatest of moods to write a long post. I'll give you someone to read who seems to always be up to greatness in his opinion pieces: the latest Victor Davis Hanson article on National Review Online. In it, he talks about what our choices are in the war we're currently engaged in, and how simple it the choice is for him.

Do the trivialists want Saddam and the Taliban back in power? Does a Mr. Allawi repulse them? Do they wish 10,000 American troops back in Saudi Arabia? Perhaps they want Libya to resume its work on nukes? Do they care whether Dr. Khan returns to his lab? Or do they think it is child's play to hike back through the Dark Ages into the Pakistani borderlands looking for bin Laden? And is it all that easy to have prevented another 9/11 attack for almost three years now of constant vigilance? Perhaps they would like to deal with the corrupt, duplicitous, and tottering Saudi Royal family, which just happens to sit on 25 percent of the world's oil reserves — without whose daily production the economies of Japan, Korea, and China would almost immediately grind to a halt.

Of course, the people that will vote for Kerry this fall aren't all anti-American or fascist, but we're kidding ourselves if we say that none of them are.
