"Support for Saddam, including within his military
organization, will collapse
at the first whiff of gunpowder," Richard Perle predicted, echoing claims by
Dick Cheney and others. (It should be noted that while Saddam still holds power,
Perle does not. He was forced to resign last week after evidence surfaced that
he had used his post to enrich himself.)"

God told me to murder Iraq."
American troops on Tuesday rescued Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, who had been held
as a prisoner of war in Iraq since she and other members of her unit were ambushed
March 23, the Defense Department announced.
The rescued soldier's hometown erupted in
celebration at the news.
"They said it was going to be the biggest party this road had ever seen," Lynch's cousin
Sherri McFee said as fire and police sirens blared in the background.
"You would not believe the joys, cries, bawling,
hugging, screaming, carrying on," said
another cousin, Pam Nicolais, when asked about the rescue. "You just have to be here."
from W.Va. rescued
Wirt resident Jessica Lynch found after 9 days
It was better than winning a state championship in Wirt County on Tuesday night.
Fire sirens blared, people drove up and down the streets of Elizabeth blowing
vehicle horns and shouting the news that Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch had been rescued.
Lynch was rescued more than a week after she and other members of her unit were captured.
“People are parading through town in their cars
beeping horns. It’s wonderful,”
said Linda Davies, Lynch’s kindergarten teacher who was at the house when the news came.
Ken Heiney, principal of Wirt County High
School, said he was in the middle of a county s
chool board meeting when he found out Lynch had been found.
“My wife threw the door open and yelled, ‘They
have found Jessie!’”
Heiney said on CNN’s “Larry King Live.”
Blaring fire sirens alerted Rose Ruble,
who runs Hill’s Exxon in Elizabeth.
“God’s still in the miracle business,” she said.
Y'know, we wouldn't be celebrating her rescue if she'd been at
home all this time.
There's no reason for us to have to rescue a pretty nineteen-year old coed in the Iraqi desert.
This is like getting the news about Elizabeth Smart being rescued.
But like with Elizabeth Smart, (and it's none of our business) we should assume that
this young woman has been through the hell of all hells and then pray that we're wrong.
You know how I'm always saying that men are single-minded, sex-obsessed
Well, I was talking about American men, men with some level of liberalism in them.
This next bit can't come off as racist, because it's true:
There are no (or hardly any) natural blondes in the Middle East.
Therefore, to cavemen in Iraq, a blonde woman is a great, great prize.
Rumor has it that they'd prefer the makeup lady on Drew Carey to Courtney Cox.
They just love that blonde hair. ...and a great-looking American woman who's just
been captured by the lawless Iraqi army is in severe physical danger, to say the least.
Thank the Keeper of the Seasons for sparing her life, but I kinda
doubt we'll be
seeing her on The Today Show chatting it up with Katie anytime really soon.
Of course, I'd really, really like to be wrong about all this, but I'm probably not.
It would be great to see her come thru this like Patty Hearst,
who is f-ing amazing.
Have you seen her on a talk show?
(Patty, I've been a Patty Hearst fan since
the day they took you.
Hey, want to do a weekly column for bartcop.com?
I heard you say on Larry King that you
needed an outlet for your views.

I've seen Patty on TV several times - she's as funny and natural
and sweet as she can be.
Let's hope Jessica and Elizabeth can both get back home mentally, too.

Following Sept. 11, the media lobbed fluffballs at the Bush administration. When Rumsfeld
appeared on Larry King in Dec. 2001, for example, he admitted that at 8:00 a.m.on Sept. 11,
he told a congressional delegation that "sometime in the next two, four, six, eight, ten, twelve
months there would be an event that would occur in the world that would be sufficiently shocking
that it would remind people again how important it is to have a strong healthy defense department."
Did that raise an eyeball?
Or inspire follow-up questions?
King responded, "You were pretty prophetic

Is there a way to make MP3s with Windows?
I need a tech to explain that to me.
Or better question - what's the cheapest/best way to make MP3s?
I've used Cool Edit for years in my "underground concert
which cost me about $70, and it works great. BCR will have lots of contributors
(you can be one, too!) so it would help if I knew what to recommend to people.
Is there a better alternative to buying the $70 software and a $30 headset from Radio Shack?

Someday we'll be able to afford a live phone hookup - they are very expensive.
We want Republicans to call - that makes it interesting.
If you have a decent long distance carrier, the call will only cost 20 cents.
Last night's calls:
Lots of calls, one from a man asking why we seem to be in every town in Iraq, killing innocents,
when we're sure Saddam is hiding in Baghdad. He may have a point, since Rummy thinks protecting
your back isn't necessary, we might as have dropped 1,000 chutes into Baghdad and taken care of
business without killing Basra and those other towns.
Another call from a lady asking about the food for oil
program we've had going for years.
We're giving them beans, rice and fresh water, and the B.F.E.E. gets all the oil, right?
If there's a nickel to be made on death and suffering, the B.F.E.E. is right there.
In the chat room last night, one lady said I sounded "country."
That may, unfortunately, be true.
I grew up in ...Denver, where people don't have accents,
but when I was 16 I moved to Arkansas
(at gunpoint) where everybody called me "Yankee" because I didn't sound Arkie enough.
Later, I met Mrs. Bart in Fayetteville and she wanted to move in Oklahoma, so after living here
for 27 years, I'm afraid I've been Okie-ized.

“To many New Yorkers, the scenes of a city
under siege were achingly familiar.
New Yorkers watching the televised bombing of Baghdad yesterday said they
were riveted by the raw and uninterrupted display of American military might.
But for some, the bombing brought back particularly visceral and chilling memories.
They could not help thinking about Sept. 11, and how New York, too, was once
under assault from the skies.”

Subject: Micheal Moore Moment
On the show Marketplace on
NPR - I heard a journalist who was being interviewed
from Iraq say that he was blown away by the Iraqi people's inherent kindness and tenacity.
He was on hand when that bomb had killed so many in the marketplace last Friday, and saw
the carnage... two Iraqi men approched him, and asked where he was from. He said he was
from America, and he was so sorry about the devistation... they responded,
"We know it isn't you - it's not the
American people, they are good people.
It's your government that is bad. We saw the Oscars.
We heard Michael Moore, and the others. We know it isn't you."
For many, MM's Oscar moment may not have
been the time or place,
but he reached MILLIONS of people with his message - OUR message.
It has done some good.

The whole plot of this season revolves faking a war in the Middle
East so a
powerful group can steal their oil. The president's chief of staff works for the B.F.E.E.,
and they're using former CIA types to sacrifice Los Angeles to a nuclear blast JUST
to draw America into a stupid and bloody war the the Middle East
Jack, the hero, is trying to stop the senseless war and expose the B.F.E.E..

look at the plane that hit the Pentagon 9-11-01
by Jean Pierre Desmoulins
Why, if there is no lost frame, this can't be a 757
Assuming that there are no lost frames, and that a 757 has moved from frame 1
(hidden by yellow cabinet) to frame 2 (masked by explosion) between frame 1 and 2,
in 66 to 100 ms, we must admit that this plane has covered a distance equal to :
L + S
L = 40 m : It's length to appear completely
at the left of the yellow cabinet
S = 40 m (minimum) 70 m minus the radius of the fireball
The speed of the 757 should so be at least 80 m in 100 ms, which gives a speed
of 800 m/s, or 2880 km/h (mach 2.5). I suppose it's not even necessary to ask
the engineers of Boeing to know if this is possible.
If this was a 757, how many frames have been lost ?

(The Daily Oklahoman is the FOX News paper in this sorry state)
Subject: some things never change
I left Oklahoma several years ago for greener
pastures. I'm not suprised to see that
the state I love is still populated by intolerant, reactionary nitwits. Few things make
this more apparent than the scores of letter I see written by people like Dalton Langley
who support unilateral preemptive attacks on Iraq.
Langley's contention that the attacks on
the World Trade Center, The USS Cole and
various other American targets legitimize this war is yet another example of the gleaming
beacon of ignorance that shines throughout much of Oklahoma. Certainly The Oklahoman
does nothing to dispell that, preferring instead to use the paper's position to promote
positions that would only line the pockets of the Gaylords and their cronies. In fact, I'm
surprised that Wednesday's editorial on school boycott's didn't just come right out and
say what an 'uppity nigger' Opio Toure is. That was almost certainly the overriding
sentiment in the meeting of the editorial board.
Pointing out that Iraq had nothing to do
with the attacks Langley mentioned will, no doubt,
also fall on deaf ears. His ilk have never been the type to let the truth get in the way of their
convictions. The fact that both American and British intelligence confirmed Iraq's non-complicity
would have no bearing on Langley's thought process. After all, intelligence is obviously not
one of his strong suits.
I remember hearing Oklahoma's leadership
talk about the 'Brain Drain' of talented, educated
professionals leaving Oklahoma. The job market is just one factor in the decision that caused
me (and the many Oklahomans I work with) to leave behind the glorious red dirt, scissor-tailed
flycatchers, open spaces and most beautiful sunsets in the world behind. Most of us would love
to come back to Oklahoma, but refuse to abandon the concepts of thought, reason and
compassion at the border.
I assume it's a coincidence that the writer and the newspaper's owners are both named 'Gaylord.'
