Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

I've been ruminating since I heard about Polish commandoes assisting in Iraq. The fact is, that of all the peoples who were hurt by Hitler in the last century, Jews and Gypsies aside, the worst hurt were the Poles. It makes a lot of sense to me that they would stand up and participate in dealing with the closest to Hitler that exists today. When Bush spoke at the AFB yesterday morning, he mentioned combat troops from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Poland, and that we are expecting combat troops from the Ukraine and Bulgaria. Wild. It's hard to concieve of forces from all of these former Soviet republics participating in this endeavor.

I know, my bewilderment isn't some deep or interesting screed, nor is it tittlating (sp?), nor is it my day's activities, but I find my mind floating back to these things when I drive, or sit quietly.

I found myself watching a couple of Babylon 5 episodes on DVD last night from the first season...no particular reason, just didn't feel like watching more war news, nor the Twilight Zone. I do very much enjoy B5, but I just didn't get into them last night.

Rumor has it that the home computer isn't working right....more to do when I get home.
