One for the history books

A big h/t to Stageleft. Keith Olbermann's masterful speech (not, in my view, a "rant" at all, not that I have anything against a good rant) is something I hope might appear in a movie fifty years hence about the struggle for America's soul--word for word, all ten+ minutes of it. It would be a challenging role. This is pure, genuine, hurt outrage from an obviously patriotic American steeped in the narrative of his country, reacting viscerally and yet in measured fashion to the latest sleazy move by the morally bankrupt Bush administration. The echoes of Emile Zola are a little self-conscious, but amply justified: from Olbermann we hear, once again, a piercing cry for justice.

Ma protestation enflammée n'est que le cri de mon âme
, Zola said, concluding his 4,000-word indictment of the corrupt and venal system that convicted and imprisoned the innocent Captain Alfred Dreyfus. And Olbermann's spirit cries out with like passion when another corrupt and venal system permits a guilty man--a disgrace to the public office he held--to walk free because his President has set both himself and his willing stooge above the law.

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very
easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for
me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer
to create your theme? Superb work!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are
you using for this site? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've
had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why
but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring
writers? I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on
everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks!

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number
of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard very good things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any suggestions?

Exploring I noticed your website bookmarked as: Blogger: Dawg's Blawg. Now I am assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets you a good deal of targeted traffic? I've been looking at
doing some social bookmarking for a few of my websites but wasn't sure if it would produce any positive results. Thanks.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
