Grumble, grumble.....
"Ferret out all the indications that the organizational/political bargaining models best describe U.S. decision-making policy toward Iraq prior to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. "
What if I don't agree that they "best describe"?

Duluth News Tribune | 10/01/2005 | Swenson wants to offer scholarships to vandals
James I. Swenson, chief financial backer of University of Minnesota Duluth's new science building, says he is turning the other cheek. Swenson said he and UMD Chancellor Kathryn A. Martin have talked about offering the vandals, who caused $8 million in damages to the new science building November, scholarships to the university. Swenson said the idea is to give the young men a tour of the science building, let them talk with some students and then offer them some incentive to get their lives in order. The juveniles have pleaded guilty to felonies: first-degree criminal damage to property, and burglary charges ranging from first to fourth degree. They have been sentenced to time at Woodland Hills residential treatment center, community service, and were ordered to pay a total of $233,258 in restitution. They are also banned from the UMD campus unless accompanied by someone from Woodland Hills. While the boys still have several years to go before they reach college age, "actions like this mean we are offering these young men a chance to be better people," said Emily Gaarder, assistant professor of sociology at UMD. "The community is giving them a chance to succeed."

Courtesy of Michele at A Small Victory , another interesting meme.
A.) Go to musicoutfitters.com B.) Enter the year you graduated from high school in the search function and get the list of 100 most popular songs of that year C.) Bold the songs you like, strike through the ones you hate and underline your favorite. Do nothing to the ones you don't remember (or don't care about).
As I went through this list, a couple of things struck me. I must REALLY dislike any variation of the BeeGees/ Gibb family. I struck through every single BeeGee/ Andy Gibb song.

...the first steps to #16 on the 100 things list have been taken. I did it…..I am now (again?) a college kid. Admitted, registered, class picked and first half all paid for, books bought ( and man, do I appreciate Amazon.com!!! a $90 textbook for $14.99!!), pencils sharpened and a new notebook. Exactly 25 years after I flamed out the first time. I must be nuts. UW may not be completely aware of what they’re in for!!! doll

Yahoo! News - Police bust up nearly nude protest
"Before their arrest, the activists chanted "Love in, Fur out" as they frolicked on a mattress outside the Ivy League school. A large crowd, including several blue-collar workers, watched the protest with broad smiles across their faces. "We thought we'd seen it all, but this is a first," said Scott Nelson, an electrician on his lunch break."
