My new camera is slightly larger than a cell phone. My old camera was an order of magnitude larger. I tend to take the new camera with me. It fits into a pocket. Yesterday I got pics of the demonstration at Harvard because the camera was in my pocket when I came upon the demo.
Scary interview on CNN by Paula Zahn with Tom Daschle, Senate Minority Leader. They played Daschle's speech prior to the war, where he said it was a failure of diplomacy that forced the war. Playing the speech now was unfair. As the NY Times editorial said, that was the time to ask how we got into this mess. Now that the war is on, Daschle has made a joint statement with Senate Majority leader Bill Frist supporting US and allied troops in Iraq. Then Zahn asked if Daschle could see how some would have seen his statement as unpatriotic. What an outrage. Zahn is a reporter, interviewing a distinguished member of the US Senate. She pressed him. If I were he, I would have gotten up and left the interview. Listen up. War is not an excuse to turn off your minds. We need our minds more than ever. Reporters don't lecture leaders. They report. Daschle voiced a concern that many Americans have, at an appopriate time. Once the war is under way, he and we are commited, like it or not.
