Working on some stuff for BMEshop and the new printing company this morning, and then shortly we're off. I'm doing an experience update this evening, so if you have time, reviewing experiences makes that job go much better…

I'm happy to see that the US has had to release its hostages (more) — they were capturing and holding prisoner the wives and children of people they suspected of being opposed to America in order to attempt to convince them to turn themselves in (ie. turn yourself in or we abuse your wife type stuff). They'd been asked to release them “because such actions are provocative for the Iraqi people” — I suppose no one thought to mention that it's also a war crime (sounds familiar).

PS. 4,000 Americans have been maimed to the point where they had to be evacuated out of Iraq for medical reasons so far (more). Outside of the roughly one dead soldier a day, that's about 25 guys a day being evacuated due to their injuries. 20% of those suffered “severe brain injuries” (ie. they're now severely mentally handicapped), with 50% more believed to also have some form of brain injury.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
