Open Thread - 11/6/2009

I managed to stay caught up on replying to comments yesterday and even visited a few blogs.  Today, I’ll see how I feel.  It’s touch and go.

Since there will be articles on the Fort Hood incident everywhere, I won’t dedicate an article to it today in order to wait until more is known.  In case you have not heard, Maj. Hassan was not killed after all.  He is alive and in stable condition.  Despite the many rants from the extreme right that this was motivated by Islamo-fascist terrorism, there is no evidence to date to support that.  My one thought is that our military is altogether worn out if our troops’ stories are so horrific that a psychiatrist, whose job was counseling thousands of them went off the deep end.  But that’s only speculation on my part, a gut feeling.  I cannot support that was the basis for his motivation and I make no such claim.

Today’s Jig Zone puzzle took me 6:08.  To do it, Click Here.  How did you do?

Here’s your cartoon:
