Pakistan and Afghanistan

This random rant is brought to you courtesy of Tacitus: Pakistan itself, meanwhile, is happily engaging in its national pasttime of effectively ignoring its extremists and conducting small-scale aggression against its neighbors.

X2 and T3

This was the weekend of sequels and single letters. We finally watched X2. It’s good; in fact, it’s better than the first one. But you definitely should have seen X-men before watching X2.

No, I am not trying to link the two. These are the big news in recent days. I thought about blogging about them, but I don’t have anything original to say and lots of bloggers have already posted about it. The blog central for information on the Bush claim that Iraq was trying to get… Continue reading Yellowcake and Moussaoui

Honda Civic R.I.P.

Amber’s car was in the workshop since her accident. Now, we have found out that the frame of the car is damaged and our insurance is declaring the car a total loss.
