News, News, and more News

Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) has written two articles about Caspar 'Cap' Weinberger who died today. He was President Ronald Reagan's Defense Secrectary, and he died in his home in Maine at the age of 88 years old.

The press and Israel will be bringing up the fact that Cap pushed for Pollard to serve a full life sentence, and he was also 'involved' in the 'Iran-Contra affair.' He was pardoned before any case came before him by President George H. G. Bush.

Cap, I don't care what they say, thank you. May you rest in peace, and may your family and loved ones be comforted. Good-bye.

Update: Oh my! I forgot the rest of the stories! There are stories I haven't had to write, but you may have an interested.

Well, that is all I shall burden you with at this point. Have I read all of these? No. Have I read most of these? Yes. Why do you think I have been so miscombombulated? By the time I get done ready them, the news has changed or it is old.

These are some of the articles that have weighing heavy on my mind. I still have much to do, but it will slighty easier now that I have this off my list of 'to do' projects. There really are some good articles in there. Many people contributed. If you recognize your work and do not see credit, please let me know immediately! I will gladly give the credit due you. Have a good day.
