Going out of town for the weekend to visit Mr. and Mrs. Lieutenant in North Carolina (Camp Lejune, or thereabouts). Shall report back on Monday with news of the world.

Oh yeah-- there's a coup d'état scheduled for March 15. (Mark your calendars.) Some politically-motivated kiddles called Political Cooperative, a flea on the body of United for Peace and Justice, are planning to "Storm the White House" and are looking for volunteers to help overthrow the government. To "stop genocide, torture, and occupation"-- except occupation of the White House, of course.


Oh, and they'll be installing an interim government when they've ousted Bush and Company-- made up of upright citizens from Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch-- because, of course, in a free country everyone is free to impose a benevolent ruling junta on people who aren't smart enough to know what they want or what's good for them or how to look after themselves. Apparently Michael Moore is totally onside.

Did anyone ask the American voter if he/she would mind a small change of government on March 15? Significantly, no. Does it matter to United for Peace? No. Because they believe in freedom-- theirs, and no one else's. L'état, c'est moi. The French did it first, and did it best-- Reign of Terror scheduled for St. Patrick's Day.
