Is coming nearer on the path.

Happy Martin Luther King Day

Two years ago, I covered this holiday to my satifaction, and I'm sticking with it.

In other news, Bush has decided that rather than pleading his own case for war to the political body charged by the Constitution with declaring it, it's now apparently Congress's burden of proof to justify questioning Bush's desire to widen said war, providing a delightful illustration of how Congress's abdication of its responsibility to handle declarations of war comes back to haunt us:

"Frankly, that's not their responsibility," Bush said in an interview on the CBS News program "60 Minutes," which aired Sunday.

"It's my responsibility to put forward the plan that I think will succeed. I believe if they start trying to cut off funds, they better explain to the American people and the soldiers why their plan will succeed," the president said.

In lighter news, Zulieka offers a vignette that illustrates the perils of life before Google (and shows her lovely face for the first time in quite a while).
