I'd like to link an excellent column by one of Newsweek's writers stationed in Iraq. It's very leftist, but I was moved enough to want to link to it.

And while searching for patches to the glitch-ridden Civilization III, I came across this old parody of the late 2001 situation in Afghanistan.

I'm glad to see they're releasing the extended editions instead of the original theatrical editions, but good god, I don't know anyone who would sit through all three in a row (even with intermissions) except for the absolute die-hards. Me, I'd consider going to see Fellowship on Monday, Towers on Tuesday, and Return on Wednesday, or something like that. I own Fellowship on DVD, but nothing can match the big screen, especially for a film that breathtaking.

I'm crippled after 2 hours in the theatre, both of the LOTR movies and Titanic nearly killed me. I can't imagine being there longer.

Today CBS finally canceled "The Reagans," as expected. Here's the story. If you haven't been following this: CBS spent about $8-9 million to film a late-November miniseries about the Reagans, mostly positive (the central theme was their love for one another) but with a few intentional blemishes, just to prevent it from being hero worship.
