Tuesday Update

World News: It seems that Osama bin Laden now claims in a new videotape that Zacharias Moussaoui had nothing to do with the attacks on 9/11/01. He couldn't have made this statement when it might have done Moussaoui any good. No, he has waited until the trial was concluded. Sorry, I'm not buying it. This is a ploy to tie the case up in litigation forever. I hope people recognize it for the sham it is. If your friend (or cohort) is in jail, and you have information that can get him out, give the information before the conviction.

On the other hand, I have to admit that bin Laden's word before the conviction as to Moussaoui's guilt or innocence would simply have raised scorn. Now it can raise controversy.

Horses: I'm very glad to hear that Barbaro is healing well after his leg fracture. Have you noticed, though, that Barbaro's injury has sucked all of the media attention away from Bernadini, the horse that actually won the Preakness? Something's just wrong about that.

Health: I got out of the eye doctor's office in under two hours. I couldn't believe it! And I came away with a piece of baklava from the snack store in the lobby. Yum!

I also bought a bottle of Tropicana lemonade. While waiting for Mark to pick me up, I read the ingredient list on the bottle. I ask you, why does this bottle of lemonade contain ester of wood rosin? Lemonade is supposed to consist of three things--water, lemon juice concentrate, and sweetener, with maybe some preservatives, period. I do not like having high-fructose corn syrup, salt, ester of wood rosin, and yellow dye #5 in my lemonade. Is nothing sacred?

TV: I've decided that I will watch Dog tonight instead of House, if it's the wedding episode. If I missed the wedding episode, then I'll watch Dr. House get shot. And I'll watch King of Cars afterward.


I know Bernardini should get some coverage for winning the Preakness, but I can't help turning to everything I see about Barbaro. That injury is too close to Ruffian's, except that Barbaro didn't continue pounding his leg into the track after the break.

I caught the footage after the Preakness. ::shudder:: Poor horse. I'm glad he's doing well, though. He still has a serious chance of dying from infection. :(


Kris--yeah, I feel the same way--very, very interested in Barbaro's condition and not as much interested in which horse actually won the Preakness. Barbaro's leg seems to be healing well, so far, so I hope he'll not have any serious infections. I was amazed that he was able to put his full weight on that leg so soon after the surgery, considering that he fractured three bones.

How are you liking your new job? are you and your Mom settling in okay, now that the Great Roach War is nearing its end?
