I just stopped breathing for about ten seconds. Holy f-ing shite! Treason? This is sooooooo grounds for impeachment. He said anyone involved was out. Let's hold him to it.

I agree Kat, but I'm not betting the farm on it. Cheney could take a bullet for him and say he lied when he said that bush had declassified it.

Fitzgerald's reputation and history suggest that he is uncorruptable, patient, thorough, detests government corruption, despises lying, and works his way up the chain to the top. He's done it before...

Most of the first and second Bush administration belong behind bars - forever - but I'm not holding my breath either. Perhaps the new American Dream is one of simple justice.

Cheney did all the dirty work for Bush and Libby was the one who actually implemented it. He knows where all the bodies are buried. He can give Fitzgerald damning evidence against Cheney, Rove, and Bush himself. This little revelation today is just the tip of the iceberg. He's threatening to tell all.

Libby wants a pardon. And he may get it. I wouldn't be surprised to see Atty General Gonzales intervene and drop the prosecution on the grounds of "national security." There would be a furor but this White House thinks it can get away with ANYTHING. (And so far, they have.)

So much for Republicans sticking together. When their butts are on the line, they squeal on each other like little pigs.

I'm not holding my breath either, but for the first time in a long time I feel optimistic.

Nash may have the pulse of this. As fo rme, seeing the admin lose the favbled loyalty it insists upon brings a smile to my face no matter the outcome.

PoP, just a question. You mentioned being in three schools in one year and that your family moved around a lot. We may have way too much in common. :-)

21 schools in 12 years with the high point being five schools in the 9th grade.

No kidding Jamie? I went to over 20 schools in 12 years, I think it was 22 in all but I'm not sure any more. In the third grade I went to three different schools in one year.

What I meant about the three schools and home ec, was that the school I went to in the 7th grade required home ec. Then we moved to a different school in the 8th grade and that one required home ec in the 8th grade. 9th grade, different school, same requirement.

Amazing, that many home ec classes and I didn't learn shit.

There's a nice topic. What do you feel that you lost by being somewhat rootless and in so many schools and what do you think you gained?

That is a good question. I know a lot of oil company and military brats who travelled around a lot. Some have told me they were unfazed, others felt lost and rootless from Day 1.
Think it depends on the person, I think introverts would have a harder time with it than extroverts.

Between this news and Glenda's post I'm afraid my brain might implode... just kidding, but it is bizarre.

I've moved thirteen times, and I think I turned out OK. Wayne's right about your language art skills.

Have a great weekend.

I'll have to give this moving, plus or minus thing, some thought. As they say, it didn't kill me, so maybe it made me stronger. Let me think about this and perhaps I'll try to explain it in a post soon.

Thank you guys for what you said. It means so much coming from you. :)

Kathleen, you may be on to something about the language skills. I was reading before the age of three. Even though I was a quiet, bookworm or a child, I was able to communicate with others easily.

Losses include the feeling that I have no "home town" nor any childhood friends to give continuity to my life. There is one cousin who has known me all of my life, two people who have known me since I was 17 (and one of those is an ex husband):-). Everyone else is someone I met after the age of 30.

On the plus side, I can adjust to virtually any situation almost instantaneously, even the most traumatic and things that happen that would send others into a tizzy have a minimal effect. The lesson that everything changes is too deeply ingrained.

I'm sure there are lots of other differences. I'll have to ask my cousin who lived in one town until she graduated high school and then went to the distant college 25 miles away, married and moved another 15 miles where she has lived for 40 years, and who has never been farther than 500 miles to take a vacation other than a trip to Washington DC that scared her to death.

Billy Joel sang,

They tell you, "You can't sleep alone in a strange place."
Then they tell you, "You can't sleep with sombody else."
Ah, but sooner or later you sleep in your own space.
Either way, it's OK, you wake up with yourself.

I think it was all Barbara's idea. She was mad at the press for questioning her boy.

Nash, That has always been one of my favorite Billy Joel songs. The other being a real oldie "Anywhere I hang My Hat is Home".

Perhaps President Bush's DOGMA is about to be run over by his KARMA.
