Sylvio Speaks

Actually Steven Van Zandt of the E-Street Band. He will be on Stephanopolis this AM.
Like C&L I do not know why, but someone will probably be 'whacked' Sopranos style.

Jim Webb is on Press the Meet, I have it on DVR to watch later, supposedly real good.

Meanwhile just a nice Sunday ahead, some of you are firing up your snow shovels, be careful, don't have a heart attack.

Better get your buckets for this one:

Don't ever say the Bush administration doesn't take care of its own. Nearly three years after Paul Wolfowitz resigned as deputy Defense secretary and six months after his stormy departure as president of the World Bank—amid allegations that he improperly awarded a raise to his girlfriend—he's in line to return to public service. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has offered Wolfowitz, a prime architect of the Iraq War, a position as chairman of the International Security Advisory Board, a prestigious State Department panel, according to two department sources who declined to be identified discussing personnel matters. The 18-member panel, which has access to highly classified intelligence, advises Rice on disarmament, nuclear proliferation, WMD issues and other matters. "We think he is well suited and will do an excellent job," said one senior official.


GAAAWWWDDD! The CROOKS keep popping up with new ways of feeding their pals,

The WOLF watching the hen house

International Security Advisory Board (ISAB)

The Secretary of State's International Security Advisory Board (formerly called the Arms Control and Nonproliferation Advisory Board (ACNAB)) provides the Department with independent insight and advice on all aspects of arms control, disarmament, international security, and related aspects of public diplomacy. The ISAB is sponsored and overseen by the Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security. The Board provides its recommendations directly to the Secretary of State. The Board currently has 18 members and is chartered to have up to 25. Board members are national security experts with scientific, military, diplomatic, and political backgrounds. The Board meets in a plenary session on a quarterly basis.

One thing about it...with all these re-treads resurfacing within the cabal, it'll be easier to round 'em up and send 'em to The Hague. Don't even need to smoke 'em out...

Global warming on the march....

* High wind advisory

* Flood watch

* Possible snow

Here we had a Chinook in the morning, followed by about four inches of snow, which just stopped.

Very, very slick out. Nobody spreading sugarcane juice up this way yet...

...posting this for no particular reason except that it's from Dr. B's neck of the woods (and university). I was looking for "novel" deicers and somehow I ran into this:

The effects of the highway deicing activities on the Peshastin Creek watershed were studied over a 6-month period from December 1999 to May 2000.  Three threatened and/or endangered species: steelhead (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) inhabit the stream and, therefore, a study of the effects of deicing activities was warranted.  Five reaches along Peshastin Creek and its tributaries were selected for the collection of weekly grab samples and three of these reaches were outfitted with continuous monitoring equipment.  Water quality tests, Microtox® toxicity tests, benthic macro invertebrate enumeration and streambed substrate sieve analyses were used to evaluate the influence of deicing activities (application of traction sand and IceBAN, a liquid deicer) on Peshastin Creek.  The physical, chemical, and biological parameters evaluated in this study indicate that deicing activities along SR 97 had no measurable negative impact on Peshastin Creek.

Environmentally friendly compositions having anti-icing, deicing or graffiti prevention properties

Biodegradeable deicing composition

More thought for an environmentally friendly solution is always the wise choice.

Wisdom however does not always prevail.

I have had plenty of rusty fenders to prove it.

Minneesota, ya know.
