BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

[BuzzFlash Note: Barbara's Buzz will skip Friday, to return Monday.]

Why was Dick Cheney hiding in the bushes during George Bush's press conference??? Was this just another "undisclosed location" or was there something more sinister involved? Was he making certain Bush delivered the "riot act" to Congress??? Was it just a reminder that the "master-mind" was close by or was he just supporting a bad political move? Only the "shadow" president knows for sure!!! "HENRY: With Vice President Dick Cheney looking on from behind a shrub, the president lambasted Congress for going on spring break before delivering war funding bills which Democrats insist will require that U.S. troops start leaving Iraq."

Is no matter what she may do

Can't make her someone new.

Their own fears of moral weakness are being played out on this international scale.

It's become a TV ritual: Every year on April 4, as Americans commemorate Martin Luther King's death, we get perfunctory network news reports about "the slain civil rights leader."

I am eternally grateful for the morning that I discovered BuzzFlash. I am a Blue Lady in a Purple State with very Red neighbors on either side. I am an Old Lady with some health problems and I was feeling very alone. Then I wandered onto the BuzzFlash site and the world no longer seemed quite so bleak.
