Some beauties. Especially enamoured of the sixth one. These all taken about two weeks ago, by a couple my wife tutored in English when they first moved to America from Russia about a decade ago. Many other photos worth a look on their site, as well.

I owe y'all a proper blog entry soon. Suffice it to say things have been mad on the ground. Huge movements on our front. I'll detail more w/ a larger entry w/in the next week.

Also--the new Trip is up. Take a peek, if you're so inclined.

Ike the psychic?

Man oh man. Thanks, quarblotz.

"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

-- President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1954

(I can only hope the first sentence proves as prophetic as the last three.)
