i'd be surprised if the Seahawks win more than 6 games this year. Tavaris Jackson (or soon Charlie Whitehurst) is just keeping the QB position warm until they can draft a QB next year. I think Tampa Bay is a team to watch. The Titans as well. If Hasselbeck get protection and a back like Chris Johnson, they may just surprise and get into the playoffs. Houston is the team to beat but Arian Foster is a question mark due to injuries. If Foster hamstring is okay, Houston could just go to the Super Bowl. And now, it's time to answer the question no one wants to ask - who wins the NFC West? Sorry Heather (San Fran). Sorry Mum (Seattle). It will be St. Louis.
It's the 10 year anniversary of 9/11, a true day that lives in infamy. Sue and i were in Denver when it all went down. And then a long 1,890 mile drive home.
It still rankles me because there are still so many unanswered question. Bin Laden is dead, but F16's shot down the plane in Penn. There was no wreckage. My friend Jamey, who was in the army at the time, saw two F16's take off and head west. And how did those people make cell phone calls after Jet Blue would later spend billions to try and perfect the technology to allow that to happen? Bush had to know something was going to happen. It shaped his ENTIRE presidency and provided an excuse to invade Iraq, something he was hell bent on doing. He bombed Iraq in early 2001. Why? Because he was trying to get his Daddy's balls back. Impossible that the Republicans would allow something like this to happen? I leave you with one question - Have or have not the Republicans proved they'll do ANYTHING to win an election? Bush stole the 2000 election with his brother Jeb as governor of Florida. The biggest benefit to invading Iraq was that Mark Rove knew the American people have never voted against an incumbent president in a time of war. Rove said in early 2001 that he wanted Bush to be a "wartime president." I was like "with who?" He knew it was the only way the Texas Turd could get re-elected. The house, in a staggering display of irresponsibility, let the debt ceiling go down to the wire, costing the USA it's AAA credit rating. The day of Reckoning is coming. If our politicians don't get their heads out of their collective asses, it's going to be a brutal one for all of us and our children.

I had a very good intercambio wth Silvia yesterday. She works for American airlines, so she needs English. She's very nice. And hot! How is it that all of my female students are hotter than Texas asphalt? Perhaps because they're all at least ten years younger than me. D'oh!
It's been hot. Only 83F today, which will be awesome if it's true.
I'm meeting Asun at 18:00 in La Latina. T0 what avail, i just don't know. What the hell am i doing? No idea really.
