Does this mean we're 3x as secure now?

Just after the election, we are finally allowed to know that 4,000 stinger anti-aircraft missiles have gone missing in Iraq. So that brings the worldwide total of loose stingers from about 2,000 to about 6,000. Yep, these are the same kind of weapon that OBL has been seeking to shoot down civilian airliners.

I sure am glad that Saddam isn't around anymore to share weapons with terrorists.

Still recovering

Just 1,455 more days to go! Election 2008!

We spent Election Day at Roselawn Lutheran Church in northern Cincinnati as part of the Election Protection team of volunteers. Turnout was heavy, about 80% apparently, with significant numbers of first-time voters. We helped some of those folks. They seemed genuinely excited, willing to wait in 2-hour lines if necessary. I think we all felt that we were part of something.

I hope that they stick with it.
