Crawford isn't that far from San Antone
But I'll bet that Bush won't be in a rush
To visit any patients treated there when
He’s so often back home clearing brush.

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

All we know is that allowing Bush to put more soldiers in harm’s way in a war that Bush claimed had achieved its mission years ago – and has since degenerated into an imploding civil war which America has no cause to be involved with – is akin to giving an alcoholic a couple of bottles of 100 proof Vodka, handing him the keys to a car, and pointing him toward a pedestrian mall. -- BuzzFlash

Subject: Tweety the Nit Strikes Again

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

Democrats and Republicans around the country should tack this list on their frig and remember it and keep track of all other votes against the citizens of this country as a reminder that we need Republican leadership like we need the black plague, Russia, or China taking care of business. These people voted for a bill by Allard of Colorado to eliminate the minimum wage altogether. What do the people in Colorado see in this thug who has no respect for the American worker at all? What kind of people do we have in our government today? A sorry, sorry bunch of tight-assed swells.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Kathy Kelly: Engagement with War

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Kathy Kelly

Earlier this week, I received a joyful phone call from Baghdad. Members of a family I've known since 1996 announced that one of their younger daughters was engaged. Broken Arabic and broken English crossed the lines – "We love you! We miss you!" My colleague here in Amman, who also knows this family well, shook her head smiling when I gave her the happy news. "What an amazing family," she said. "Imagine all that they've survived." A few hours later, the family sent us a text message: "now bombs destroy all the glasses in our home – no one hurt."

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

Last week, I attended a reunion of "The 51st State," a robust, local public television news and public affairs program that graced the airwaves of New York City's Channel Thirteen back in the early 1970's. I didn't have the pleasure of working on the show -- it went off the air shortly after my arrival in Manhattan -- but a lot of my friends and colleagues did, and it was a treat to see all of them again.

Cut me some slack! We’re supposed to be pacified
