The jury for Ken Lay's trial
was picked today, so he probably won't be at the speech.
Al Qaeda's number two, Ayman al-Zawahiri
, took time out from his busy schedule to call the Shrubbery a "loser" and say:
"My first message is to the butcher of Washington, Bush: You are not just defeated and lying about it, but you are, with God's help, a loser," he said. "You are bad luck to your people; you brought them disasters and catastrophes, and you will bring them even more disasters."
It's amazing how these people on the run manage to find television studios.
He didn't say if he would be at the speech.
It looks like the Treasury has a cash flow problem and needs to borrow
$188 billion to cover its bills during the first quarter. They also need to raise the debt limit above the current $8.184 trillion.
They are too busy scrounging for aluminum cans to be at the speech.
For some reason radioactive gas
is used in aircraft ignition systems. They found out in Jacksonville, Florida when a tank of the gas exploded at the local Unison Industries plant.
Like every other accidental radiation leak in memory: "the amount of exposure is no more than an x-ray", and the decontamination of everyone and everything is "just a precaution".
No one from the plant will be at the speech as the glowing would be distracting.
