Talk about news . . .

First, go see Raincoaster for great material and even better links on the propane facility explosion in Toronto earlier this morning. You’re not going to see this on Drudge Report as of 0752 US Eastern Time, but you may want to watch gas prices or your stock portfolio in a few hours.

And, while I offered admiration for Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s patriotism a few days ago, I still think Russia has the capabililty to be just as dumb and imperialist and paranoiac as Russia has been on its worst Communist or Tsarist days.

What great timing for the Olympics and the cause of world peace, especially with the People’s Republic of China as a host. Does irony get any better than that?

  1. Yep, and our own national news organization apparently had nothing on the 3am explosions until about 11 or so in the morning. Our tax dollars at brunch, I guess.

  2. Dear Senor FFE

    South Ossetia is yet another Region of this Planet that this Rooinek understandeth not …. rather like Iraq and Ireland and etc etc

    … but I did get the impression from somewhere that it was the Georgian Government which chose to initiate the current fighting by sending in its Troops ….

    Presumably Mr Shrub would be more sympathetic to the Poor Russians, if only Georgia have a Taleban-Supporting Government
