Desperate times for desperate people

Here's the problem with creating a country of people who are desperately impoverished. It apparently took less than 24 hours for the local Iraqis to loot an abandoned British army base. The Brits left and everything removable was taken, from floor planks to window frames to corrugated roofing. You don't have a job, your house is blown up and you need materials you can't afford. Who would expect anything different?

Libby, this is totally unrelated, but Michigan Liberal has a post about blogging and down in the comment section some people identified themselves as bloggers from the 2004 election: Hy Dudgeon and Cordelia Lear. Do you remember them? They must have blogged under other names.

Also, do you remember a few weeks back when blogger Christine Barry linked to you? She relates at the above post that she was just invited to blog at the Det News this morning. I'm glad you have another liberal coming on board to help you out. I think she'll do a great job.

I bet that was the husband and wife team. Marianne, something like Nartolis and her husband who had a different name.

Cool that Christine is coming on board. I often feel outnumbered over there.
