Let Me Hear Your Balalaikas Ringing Out!

Russia vs. Georgia -- it's war! "You don't know how lucky you are, boys . . ."

Oh yeah, Olympics. Sports. Peace. International Harmony. Ebony and Ivory. We Are the World. Hands Across the Water. Rainbow Bridge. Random acts of kindness. Glass houses. Golden rules. Hurdy Gurdy Man. All You Need Is Love. Time Is On My Side. Time Waits for No One. Sympathy for the Devil. Helter Skelter. Let It Be. Let It Bleed. And while you're at it, Gimme Shelter. . . . .

Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's really going down? Whatever it takes!

Who's That Knockin' at the Door? Can't You Hear Me Knockin'? Knockin' on Heaven's Door. Knock on Wood. Mama said knock you out, HUUUH!!!

Behind the Green Door: John Edwards and Rielle Hunter! The Lady or the Tiger? Artemis strikes again!

Laura and G.W. Bush gettin' cozy in China. Behind them: a bright red rug that ties the Wal*Mart together.

8/8/008: Red Letter Day! The East is Red! Let the Games Begin! Hail Caesar!

Today's Rune: Growth.

TBILISI, Georgia - Georgia's President Mikhail Saakashvili says the country is calling home its troops from Iraq amid heavy fighting in the breakaway province of South Ossetia. Georgia has 2,000troops serving with the coalition forces in Iraq, making it the third-largest contributor after the United States and Britain.

I'll just say one word: 'Icarus'. If you get it, great. If you don't, that's fine too. But you should probably read more.

While still not in a particularly kind attitude towards the Chinese, I most likely will boycott the Beijing Olympics with my remote control. I've found that a hand extended without thought can often reach unknowingly into the fire. Glad Laura and Madam Premier chose to wear red outfits. Maybe Beijing will be the sight of chimpy's presidential library.

Kwame, out of jail, out of GQ clothes appears in the mayoral office in jeans and dress shirt. Only one word of advice for him..."big doesn't equal mean brother don't drop the soap in the shower any time in the next 5 years."

So John Edward's armor is tarnished after all. Cool, maybe he'll drop that faux Beatles hairstyle and let everything flow looser now that the mountaintop was only a place.

Caesar was forgiven by the vestal virgin, Kwame bedded the wench.

Employees at the China headquarters of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. have set up a Communist Party branch.

Wal-Mart began agreeing to union representation in China in 2004, as long as the unions were associated with the Communist Party.

Amazingly, the clothing selection is even *lamer* at the Communist Wal-Mart. Returns and exchanges must be taken to the Siberia store.

Go TEAM USA! Let's beat China in the medal count! (Hey, we gotta beat'em in something. We can't count on our leader, THE SHRUB JR., to help us out.)

Good thoughts, especially as the wax melts.

Chinese Walmart. The combination there is very very frightening. This is how the matrix began
