Early Morning Snippets

Checking the weather outlook for Dallas, it’s currently showing a variation between a high of 4°C and a low of -1°C tomorrow and a high of 20°C and a low of 9°C for Friday (the day we arrive there.) As if packing for Christmas and New Year away wasn’t enough of a headache without having to plan for two seasons’ weather…

I tried my kilt on last night in preparation for the New Year’s Eve celebrations we are attending in Austin. I felt like a Victorian lady being laced into her corset; I had to get Brett to help me with the buckles. And there I was thinking I’d lost weight lately. Nope.

I saw Condoleeza Rice on Meet The Press yesterday ducking questions about which law empowers George Bush to intercept communications without judicial approval. The best she could offer was repeating ‘I am not a lawyer’ and waffling about how terrorism was different from 'ordinary' crime so the President was only using every means possible to defend the US. Is it just me or, when laws can be ignored because the President believes they stop him doing what he thinks is best, is that called a Dictatorship?
