Ordinarily AFSC strives for a degree of respectability, at least outside of El Cabrero's beloved state of West Virginia, but they've let me and the talking animals here away with quite a bit.
IRAQ. While the Senate failed this weekend to vote on the Iraq resolution that passed the House, the WV House of Delegates will take up a similar one this week. A press conference in support is planned for this afternoon.
And it looks like there was a little excitement at Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito's office Friday after she became the only member of WV's delegation to oppose the anti-"surge" resolution. First there was a vigil outside the office. Later that evening, the Rev. Jim Lewis, a leader of WV Patriots for Peace was eventually escorted out by police and issued a citation for, shall we say, making an extended visit.
Speaking of Jim, if you haven't already, check out his musings in Fig Tree Notes. They are always worth a look.
