Friday random thoughts...

Note to my alert readers: This will be my last post until July 24, when I will return from a trip to the semi-wilds of Montana. Until then, enjoy these few random thoughts, and keep your stick on the ice (even if it's summer).

• Out of the nine leading industrialized nations, Americans take the least average vacation time. At least we use our collective free time doing constructive things like reading the supermarket tabloids and watching "Simple Life" reruns.

• President Bush chastized Congress on Thursday: "I don't think Congress ought to be running the war. I think they ought to be funding the troops." So Congress should sign over billions of dollars without questioning how it is to be spent? I guess that's Bush's idea of "oversight."

• Hate to give this more play than it deserves, but commentator David Kerst, in his first paragraph of this letter, doesn't seem to grasp the difference between climate and weather.

• Big news week for a small town: A serviceman died in Iraq, the Site 300 bio-lab was nixed, a semi-famous singer committed suicide from a local landmark, and a bank was robbed — again.

• To the family and friends of U.S. Army Pfc. Bruce C. Salazar Jr.: You have my heartfelt condolences. I hope you find the peace, solace and community support you deserve. (To readers: The fallen heroes blog here might be an appropriate place to express sympathy.)

• Random thought of the week: "Sometimes getting lost on the road is a perfect way to find yourself."

• Calvin and Hobbes quote of the week: "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want."
