Countdown To 2008

No blogging yesterday, as I was seriously "under the weather" and spent most of the day in bed. It was one of those things going around, I guess.

The clock from the Macy's light show reminds me that time is running out in 2007. There are just s few short days left until 2008. It was a pretty good year for us, I think. We did some foreign travel and enjoyed summer very much. The holidays were fun. Let's hope that 2008 is another good year.

The murder of Benazir Bhutto continues to be in the news. The turmoil that is occurring could escalate into something worse. The Bush policy of propping up Musharraf and hoping for democratic elections is in shambles. We continue to pour money into Pakistan ostensibly to help Musharraf fight terrorism, yet some observers feel that there is no oversight coming from us and that the money is actually going toward arming Pakistan against India. We're focused on Iran, which does not have nuclear weapons, while Pakistan, that does have bombs, is in danger of melting down. Speaking of 2008, I hope we can get through the last horrible year of George Bush's presidency without something else terrible happening. (Is that better, Dan?)
