honestly, who throws a shoe?

Shoes hurled at President Bush

"President Bush ducked out of harm's way when a reporter threw his shoes at him during his farewell trip to Iraq.

The man, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Iraqi-owned Al-Baghdadiya television based in Egypt, shouted "this is the end" as he hurled them at the American leader.

The moment was captured from different camera angles and shows the president's reaction afterwards."

oh hai

sorry for disappearing. i've returned. here is a recap of things you've missed.

- thanksgiving was enjoyable. quality time with stuart was nice. i also ran many miles. however, somehow momma firmingham dragged me to the rockettes. my version of hell is religiously-themed tap dancing.


- i survived the government layoffs. however, the workplace is now somewhat intolerable.


- i visited pittsburgh and lots of fun was had. however, the flight back to philly gets 2 thumbs down. there was turbulence both up and down AND side to side. stop trying to kill me, pilots! you'll never win!


- when does cold season start? if you said "right now" i would believe you.
