Good friends, baseball and politics.

I sure hope the funk I've been in has run its course. The frustration wears me down.

I called a friend to talk about the M's game tonight. It was right after the Cubs catcher had dropped the ball allowing Vidro to score. The M's won in 13. Lou must be seething.

As always happens with our talks the subject turned to politics and the occupation. He said he wondered when the occupation will end. I told him that its not going to. Its coming to that realization that's put me in the funk. Hell, I turn on a R&R station and hear a add from offering 134K jobs in Iraq training border guards.

They're building the largest embassy in the world. They're demanding that the Iraqis sign over 75% of their oil to foreign companies by the end of July and when it really is "our oil" the chances of pulling out are slim and none. Besides, I just don't think enough american people will get angry enough until a draft is reenstated.

I'd love it if someone can prove me wrong.

Unfortunately, I don't think I can prove you wrong Roy, though I try not to think too much about that.
