Got a ticket to ride

Despite the fact that Fahrenheit 9/11 is sold out in most of the theaters in my area, I managed to score tickets to a 9:20pm showing tonight—woo! That’s two whole hours of Why Bush is Wrong. What a perfect evening. Except for the $8 parking, but you can’t have everything.

In other news, if you missed The Daily Show last Monday night with Stephen Hayes, author of The Connection, you can check it out here. Note that it’s a 7.5 MB real media file—the best way to view it would be to right click it, save it to your hard drive, and watch it from there. And really, you should see it, it’s a thing of beauty. I think this was my favorite part:

Stephan Hayes: I think, I think the idea behind the Bush Doctrine is that if you support or harbor terrorists, we are gonna come after you, we’ll consider you a hostile regime. I don’t think that, frankly, in the aftermath of September 11th, I really don’t think that’s an unreasonable doctrine.

Jon Stewart: But here’s the problem. It’s not unreasonable, but it’s not the point. The point is, I’ll list you four things: developing weapons of mass destruction, inflammatory rhetoric against the United States, supporting and harboring terrorism, uh, and…uh, oppression of their own people. Now here’s the problem with your doctrine: You can’t tell me what country I just named. And that’s a problem, when you’re talking about war.

If your bandwidth is less than stellar, read the transcript.

And now for something completely different! The kitty bio page was updated yesterday, to include Greta and Cleo. Don’t roll your eyes, this is actually exciting news to…some…people. Yeah, never mind, don’t ask.
