In The News: The Massachusetts legislature is about to vote on a law on allowing the governor to immediately appoint an interim senator. For the last sixty years it's been Democrats leading one to believe that the Dems might retain their relatively bulletproof' majority for overriding filibusters, but there will be a special election in January... We'll see how much the state's demographics have changed.

President Obama is going to moderate talks between Prime Minister Olmert of Israel and US State Department and militarily backed (and it might be noted UNELECTED BY THE PALESTINIANS in their own country), in-exile "President" Mahmoud Abbas of Palestine.

General McChrystal has delivered a review of the war the West is prosecuting against the third world nation Afghanistan and calls for a new strategy, but he's not yet calling for more troops, which Secretary of Defense Gates says he'll think about... as in 'about if we HAVE any more troops that aren't worn out, too injured mentally or physically, or aren't ready to mutiny due to multiple tours of duty that they weren't aware of when they signed up, and could only be called 'back door IMPRESSMENT... Feeling a Draft yet kiddies? Hmmm, It's not even the end of summer yet and already Da Buffalo feels a cold wind blowing.

A historic note. On this date, in Danzig Germany, the first shots were fired in WWII. The war on Afghanistan is taking longer to 'win' than the whole of that war, which demolished most of Europe and left the US as the global economic powerhouse for 50 or more years... It most likely will NOT happen that way this time around. Just ask the Russians (Also, an in-depth analysis by the US government at the National Security Archive, Georgetown University).
