Return of the Blog

After several intermittently frustrating weeks of being unable to get Blogger to publish anything new to my website (and with no response to my tech. support requests from either Blogger or Prohosting – on the web, like anywhere else, I guess you get what you pay for), I finally gave up and moved my weblog to Blog*Spot.

Fingers crossed, it seems to be working so far… I’ll just have to learn to live with the ad banner or cough up another $12 a year for my almost entirely pointless website!

9/11 Inconsistencies

My full-length “polemic” web page is still under construction, but I thought I’d post just one of the many possible inconsistencies in the “official” 9/11 story that are now starting to come to light, concerning the fact that many of the supposed hijackers were perhaps not involved at all, and in fact may well still be alive.

Thanks to Andrew M. for finding this.

Support the creation of an Independent Commission into Bush’s Iraq WMD claims

The following message from

The President took the nation to war based on his assertion that Iraq
posed an imminent threat to our country. Now the evidence that
backed that assertion is falling apart.

If the Bush administration distorted intelligence or knowingly used
false data to support the call to war, it would be an unprecedented
deception. Even if weapons are now found, it’ll be difficult to
justify pre-war language that indicated that the exact location of the
weapons was known and that they were ready to deploy at a moment’s
notice. With a crisis of credibility brewing abroad and the integrity
of our President and our foreign policy on the line, we need answers

Rep. Henry Waxman has introduced legislation to create an independent
commission to investigate the Bush administration’s distortion of
evidence. Please ask your Representative to pledge his or her support

A President may make no more important decision than whether or not to
take a country to war. If Bush and his officials deceived the American
public to create support for the Iraq war, they need to be held

Hot & Hungover in NYC

Woke up to 33°C (92°F) temperature and 60% humidity with a killer hangover that even Berocca couldn’t completely mask today (incidentally, if you haven’t discovered this miracle of dietary supplements, I strongly recommend you pick some up next time you’re in a commonwealth country. And thanks for Jim Michalko for tipping me off to the stuff!).

My next apartment, which is looking as though it’s going to be in the Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens neighbourhood of Brooklyn, is DEFINITELY going to have an air conditioner.
