Morning voices

Three from my day:
Nat: This was once a country that understood the value of speaking softly while carrying a big stick. But it seems that public discourse has become so shallow and trite that all we can do is talk loudly about our big stick.

SDAI Tech1: Not a lot of people know much about Dick Cheney. The media doesn't show many pictures of him smiling, but Cheney does smile. He smiles a lot. The media just seems to consistently miss those moments.

Molly: The more or less official Democratic line is whether you were for the war or against it, the administration screwed up the implementation beyond recall, which I suppose works politically and has the added virtue of being true.
