Caspar Weinberger is dead and you don't care.

Casper Weinberger died. Props to anyone who remembers who he was and what he did. If you're interested at all I suggest doing some reading up. His policies during the Nixon and Reagan administrations are still affecting us and the world.

What's surprising to me is that this seems to not be big news. This man received a presidential pardon, was involved in Iran-Contra, was nicknamed Cap for his no holds barred approach to slash federal social spending, and created the largest peacetime military spending budget ever.

What is front page news today you may ask? MSNBC has decided that a sculpture of Brittney Spears being a pro-life model is.

"This will not be an easy task. We are fully embarked on it, we are not embarked on it to go half-way, we are embarked on it to win." - Caspar Weinberger

I'm sorry to laugh - but your sentence about the Britney Spears' thing almost made me fall out of my chair. I saw that this morning and thought the same thing you did.
