It's funny that our media, specifically our business writers, haven't noticed that this recovery has meant very little to the majority of us. I am also wondering how the numbers on Bush and terrorism look. Perhaps I am still thinking about the ongoing discussion at your last post, but after reading your analysis I have to ask if those numbers are telling us that the public has separated the war on terror from the I-wreck war for good.Certainly the non-response to Cindy Sheehan's question makes it easier to come to that conclusion.

Will the media recognize that he's not popular? Don't hold your breath.

That CNN special last night about the war being based on poor or non-existent intelligence has got to be a turning point in the MSM's level of anti-Bush involvement. Granted CNN is not fox, but CNN would not have been gutsy enough to do this a year ago, IMO. Something is in the works for them to put this blatantly anti-Bush program on the air! Now, let's see now if CBS can finds its b__ls again!

OK, not to be a killjoy, but is it really newsworthy that Joan Baez is against the war?

NEWSFLASH: I hear the Quakers are opposed as well!

Oh, cmon, isn't it news when Sheehan is successful enough to draw someone of Baez's caliber all the way to Crawford (yesterday's high: 99 degrees) "for about 500 people on an acre lot... performing such classic peace anthems as 'Song of Peace,' 'Where Have All the Flowers Gone' and 'Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.'"

The real story here is, why didn't she sing "Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream"?

I dreamed I saw a mighty room

Filled with women and men

And the paper they were signing said

They'd never fight again

Not if you're a young person.

Aside from some vague notion that Baez was an anti-war person during the Vietnam era, I didn't know a damn thing about her when I first read she was going to Crawford.

I'm 40 years old. I've seen her with Dylan in Don't Look Back...filmed before I was one year old.

My point is that, of course Joan Baez is going to show up for something like that. It's not a criticism of her. It's just like hearing "Hollywood star arrested at School of the Americas with nuns protesting US foreign policy," and you know it's Martin Sheen.

During small childhood I listened to "Diamonds and Rust" on parents' LP player.
