NOTE: No, I have no idea what has happened to my header and all of my pictures. Inquiries to photobucket are not yet answered. One second I had pictures, the next, I did not. Is anyone else having problems with photobucket?

Wally and the Beav discuss Iran and nukes – which Alexandra then takes up a notch, including a chilling graphic. Fausta, in her nicely-newly designed blog, highlights the Congressional testimony of Michael Ledeen as concerns Iran, nukes and what in the world can be done about it. Very interesting.

Dr. Sanity has been just batting 1000 for several days now. This piece on the rape of unveiled women is enlightening and maddening. But you know, read everything she’s written for the past few days, it’s all good.

Confederate Yankee has pictures and information about the babbling hyena, Mrs. Sheehan, if you can stand it. I’m sorry.

One of the most generous bloggers around is Siggy, who routinely focuses on posts by other bloggers and picks the juiciest morsels of their work in order to tempt you to go read them. He often also focuses on his commenters. He’s done it again, here, but don’t let that stop you from checking out his whole blog, and his own thoughtful essays. He is an unusual blogger – you should be visiting him daily.

No, this is not Buster but he says he’d be proud to claim it. He also said if he were 17 he’d have his driver’s license.

Heh. A vote of no confidence for Kofi
