Happ Passover to my Jewish readers:

A handful of lynx.
Apparently the perpetrators of the Moscow Metro bombing were so called 'Black Widows' pictures of the suspects have been shown on all news sources. The photos are very fuzzy.
And like that's gonna work! People who do that kind of time come out dangerous if they did not go in dangerous and if they go in dangerous, they come out more dangerous! When will they ever learn?
And here is a prediction, if they don't do more to keep these right wing militias in check, left leaning militia groups will be an inevitable consequence.
There is way too much of people running around with guns disrupting public order so I hope my prediction is wrong.

Lubyanka Station and other Moscow Metro Stations Bombed
2nd Post Surgical Update
Today I was out and about with my daughter, her two children and their cousin, and we went to a friend's house and I got to watch the gold-finches getting food from the feeders and arguing with each other. At that distance they would have been dots, fast moving dots. If I were lucky enough to spot them at all. I love birds! All my long term readers know that.

Seems like someone agrees with me about this!
Croatia sees increase in both marriages and divorces:
Macedonia having problems:
Macedonian company targets asylum seekers:
BiH would be welcome in NATO:
OK, I may or may not be in here tomorrow. I am having eye surgery and anticipate being out of commission a day or so. Then again I may bounce back faster. It all depends.

Operation Halyard Survivor Passes:
OK I have other news but somehow the internet is not cooperating. Be back later with other information ako Bog da! :)
Allright, back with a couple other links:
Karadzic told to move it on DNA part of case:
Karadzic thinks people are going to believe the Bosnian people had the time to move all those bodies there themselves.... he needs some in-house treatment if he thinks anyone will believe that!

Yes House Bill passes!
Watching the Health Care Vote
This is bad and wrong!
Shooting at these animals from helicopters and leaving their bodies to rot is wrong, and bad and wasteful.
Camels are actually in demand in India for transport since gas prices have gone up.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
So I went to sleep early and woke up again...
Tuesday, March 16, 2010
If this is true, I am very disappointed.
I voted for Obama in large part over the health care issue. Why are we being betrayed as a people in this fashion?

Check this out!
I have been saying all the provisions are more of a boon to health insurance companies than the public anyway. The ONLY way to go is single payer, but NOOOOO that is so socialist, we can't do that this is America (that IS my SARCASTIC VOICE)
Not even a lynx dump, just a lot of ccommentary...
I am so tired of Dodik, can't bring myself to actually link any of his nonsense, but he has called for 1. the division of Kosovo.... um isn't Kosovo like small enough already? Just saying...Dodik has also ordered RS officials to boycott the station which airs 60 Minuti I believe that is an FTV show. No I do not miss Mr. Dodik. He is what would happen if our own Glenn Beck got to be in politics instead of on radio only.
Closer to home, Americans who have consular duty in Ciudad Juarez have been killed by drug cartels, the BBC has reported on it pretty well, and so have American news sources. It is really very provacative and illustrates some of the dangers of our very porous border with Mexico. I found it interesting that the Mexican government actually wants the U.S. to harden the border a bit. It was a provision of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that the border not be militarized. Things have gotten out of hand with the drugs for guns trade a long time ago. Maybe the time has come to take them up on it, for their sakes and our own.

More household chemical warfare...
So I am not able to really leave my room for a bit until that crap dries up. I already know I am sensitive to oven cleaners, but the Spic-n-Span just really began doing a number on me, and I was trying to flee the smell. He meanwhile was asking computer questions, and I don't know a damn thing about Windows Vista except that I don't like it, we don't play well together. So I explained, I've been using Linux for some time now. I am not really even Nerdy enough to do it, but it has worked out anyway so far.
I can use a computer o.k. but I can't explain it all that well. I can't explain what I have been up to either. I am a tech support person's worst nightmare! :) also I can't do tech support, especially standing around trying to breathe with my throat burning like I got a distant whiff of CS gas.
I finally just said that I had to lie down. I feel tired from just the smell of that stuff.
A little bitty Lynx Dump
Bosnian Serb policeman extradited from U.S. to be tried for war crimes in Srebenica
Update on a priest's intemperate remarks.
BiH's Eurovision song has been selected, but none of the links actually would play the song for me. So I have not inculded it this time. it is called 'Munja i Grom,' 'Thunder and Lightening'
Happy Pi Day!

And the self censorship exercise FAILED.
Friday Night Lynx Dump
NOW to the story, the NGO Women to Women International does NOT repeat, does NOT belong on a list of terrorist organizations. The fact that they help women specifically is in fact a great preventative of terrorism. Women who must raise children without enough food are desperate and vulnerable. Women to Women has done great work in Bosnia Hercegovina and around the world. Why have they been accused? Who decided they should be on this list?
Sort of a Mladic update:
well so long as they don't look here for work! :)
I am really glad they got this guy, I hate traffickers. I do not consider them as human beings like myself.
And this annoys me as well, not good publicity for the Catholic Church, especially in such times as this...
Mirsad Repak declared guilty

I wish they had these places I have been stranded! :) I would have felt a lot safer.
Last Leper Colony in Europe
Unbelievable that there is still leprosy in Europe.
Ganic out on bail.
Bosnia-Hercegovina wants an apology for the arrest. I think an apology is in order It seemed a little too tit-for-tat that Serbia insisted on Ganic's arrest in the first place. More worrying is that Ganic was denied his medications during his stay in Wandsworth. I know a little about Wandsworth, back at another time in my life someone I knew was there awhile. I doubt they have a special 'foreign leader's cell'.
Some Medieval customs were not all bad.

Granny D has passed
I was sorry to see she had passed, but she sure did some good in her life
Early Morning Drive By Lynx Dump
Ganic Appears in Court, Next Hearing Set for March 25http://www.balkaninsight.com/en/main/news/26419/
over at 'Americans For Bosnia' there is a defense of Mr. Ganic that is pretty well written. Pop over and have a read.
New Border Checkpoint at Klobuk, BiH for Montenegro, and BiH
this story is plain wierd! I never heard about it before.

interview about the new film 'Lebanon'
Passages: Tito's second wife has died at age 96. I can't get details to you, as the filter doesn't like the link. So I have to look for a different link.
OK, found a workable link:

International Women's Day Post
Never mind flowers or sentimental tributes on T.V.! Bosnian women deserve justice to be done on their behalf. They suffered in the war too. That nothing has been done for their suffering is a very sad indictment. It is not only women who were raped. The same happened to men and children during the war.
Colder Weather Coming
Last night one of the house-mates made spaghetti for us all mmm! :)
Lunch is going to be some of the left overs from that. ako Bog da.
I was glad not to have to cook. My hands were still fairly itchy. They get wet I have a problem still. Both of them, although the left one seems mildly worse.
I think it was the Febreeze, it would not be getting better if it were medication related.

From MeFi of March 1 (Bosnian Independance Day btw)
Febreezed to death...
I think the butter has helped, it is so pure, it molds if you aren't careful to use it all up fast enough. Other stuff I could do involves additives and perfumes. Right on one's skin is not a good place to put perfumes, especially at a time like this. I do see a doctor tomorrow, so I will mention the symptoms. It is POSSIBLE that I am not reacting well to one of my new medications. If so that is a problem, because otherwise they are working nicely for me. Some things out there are likely to restrict my diet away from foods I really enjoy.

Ayn Rand was EVIL
What ELSE do you call someone who thinks a man who killed and dismembered a 12 year old girl is, she called that man a 'beautiful soul'
The Right Wing in our country worships this bitch.

Found it highly amusing that
Wikipedia has an Irish language page, a Navajo language page,
As well as
What is kind of funny is how varied the contents of all the articles really are! :)

Check out Utne Reader this time:
Utne Reader has an article called 'The Dark Side of Dairies' which covers the abysmal conditions of dairy workers all over the Western United States. It is must reading. Tillamook is using milk from union dairies, so all my yogurt is going to be from Tillamook.

Yesterday, a shooting
The shooter was intervening in an incident of domestic violence. The perpetrator of the domestic violence was a Mr. Bonser who is 47 years old. He was arguing with his ex-girlfriend, his 18 year old ex-girlfriend, meaning he a 47 year old man was at some point going out as an over 30 year old man with an under 18 year old girl. Mr. Bonser tried to bash his ex-girlfriend with a huge stone, so the neighbor grabbed his rifle and told Mr. Bonser to stop, so Mr. Bonser tried to run both his ex-girlfriend and the neighbor down with his truck. That is when the neighbor shot Mr. Bonser.
What the HELL was Mr. Bonser doing with a girl that young? No seriously, it is CREEPY a man his age with a girl who had to be under 18 when their relationship started. Where were her parents? Diid they do anything about it? Did he have a wife? Most 47 year old men do have wives actually. You just wonder about some people.
Earthquake in Chile, tsunami
The thing I can't stand seeing is the military is shooting 'looters', but I don't see much film of them distributing food. Most of the 'looting' looks like hungry people trying to lay hands on some food. The saddest thing you see in these scenes of devastation is children separated from their parents though.
Some affected areas are so far off the beaten track that one worries how aid will reach people in the first place. Well built roads and other infrastructure is destroyed, and of course buildings.

Karadzic looks to me like he has lost weight, and he was wearing glasses in court. Never saw him with glasses before, except for those sunglasses he wore with his 'Mr. Natural' disguise, back when he was first busted.
The BBC has had pretty decent coverage of the trial. So has PBS News Hour. Hardly any coverage on regular media.
I have not had time to go read newspapers so I don't know how that has gone.
Happy Independance Day Bosnia and Hercegovina!
We respectfully present this short video of the National Anthem of Bosnia and Hercegovina as a tribute to their independence!
