Hanoi Hilton, circa 2006

I really don't have time to do this justice, but I have provided several links to sources.

Fran O'Brien Steak House has been providing free steak dinners to wounded veteran's on Friday nights. Now, the Capitol Hilton has told them their lease would not be renewed.

The Mudville Gazette has the story, as does Blackfive. Check it out and then contact the manager, Brian Kelleher.

Pentagon update

I was going to add this to the article below, but thought it needed more prominence.

Hey, it's my blog! I make the editorial decisions.

Anyway, I was planning to research and fully rebut the below theory. As it turns out, the same friend sent me a link where that job had already been done.

See the full article here.

Thanks, Gatsbyetal.

How much heat does burning gasoline generate?

More than this item, sent by a friend for opinion, generates.

It seems the old fantasies never die. This one questions whether an airplane actually flew into the Pentagon on 9-11. It started making the rounds on about 9-12, I think. The theory is that it was a missile that hit the Pentagon, not an airplane. (This is similar to the theory that United 93 was actually shot down by the USAF.) If you think that is strange, remember that Alec Baldwin (among other ... um ... celebrities - like Michael Moore) doesn't believe airplanes flew into the World Trade Center. You see, those towers were actually demolished by explosives planted in the buildings. It was all a plot by the {quietly} Jooos {pause}, orchestrated by the evil genius {pause} Karl Rove {echo Rove - Rove -}. Don't believe the eyewitness accounts or the video footage. It was all just a trick.

If you are not a celebrity, you might think that people holding these thoughts are not playing with a full deck. Actually, the elevator no longer goes to the top because it was short-circuited by the tinfoil.

Have a nice day. Visit the links on the right and live long and prosper. I'll be back later with something of substance.
