A time to stall

Just as I predicted.  Tony Snow tells it like it is (yesterday) – I know a lot of you have been curious about when he would be announcing or talking about the way forward. That is not going to happen until the New Year We do not know when, so I can’t give you a date, I cant give you a time, I can’t give you a place, I can’t give you a way in which it will happen, so all of those questions are yet to be answered.

I’ll see if I can get a little video to go with this.  later.


Tiger Woods – one of the greatest ever

My goodness, (I got the phrase from Donald Rumsfeld) what a season!  I’m not really a golf fan but Tiger Woods is a superstar (define superstar as someone who you just have to watch).  He was simply great. 

From ESPN.com:

In an announcement that featured less surprise than the Britney/K-Fed breakup, Tiger Woods was named the 2006 PGA Tour Player of the Year on Tuesday. That’s right: The seasons change, the Earth continues spinning on its axis and Tiger Woods earns a postseason award. All is right with the world once again.

Those holding their breath may now confidently exhale. The rest of us will continue debating the merits of Woods’ season as compared with the greatest in PGA Tour history. After all, we live in a world of rankings and lists, where players’ feats are consistently measured against their own previous bests, against those of their peers, against legendary all-time marks, and it’s fitting that Tiger’s latest journey sparks similar cogitation.

From SF Chonicle:

After 13 years doing trauma surgery at San Francisco General Hospital, Dr. Andre Campbell knows just about everything there is to know about calamity, mayhem and long nights. On this Friday evening, when he was on call and tethered to the hospital until Saturday morning, his wife’s leftover meat loaf — his favorite — represented an oasis, a pause to look forward to. So even though he was hungry, he put off eating it.

He was catching up on paperwork in his modest, cluttered office — Campbell is General Hospital’s chief of medicine and is also chairman of surgical education at UCSF — when his beeper sounded about 7:30 p.m. on April 28. A shooting victim rode in an ambulance highballing it toward the Emergency Room three flights below. All through the hospital, the on-call trauma team hurried toward the ER.  more
