Weekend Reading:

Rock-Tober Edition

Fall weather finally arrived in DC this week. Nightime temps as low as 48 degrees and trees begining to turn colors. As usual, the local top 40 radio stations have deemed it "Rock-Tober" and offer an array of local concerts to celebrate.

But never-the-less, it meets the requirement, a catchy title for this week's edition of Weekend Reading. Enjoy!

Post-Rove thinking under way at White House

Louisiana Squanders Bond Money...(How shocking!)
As Louisiana officials plead for federal hurricane relief aid, a state money panel agreed Thursday to spend nearly $45 million on construction projects ranging from health labs and water wells to a sports complex and livestock facilities.

Chavez warns U.S. against invasion
Poor Hugo! You can only wish and dream you were this important. I doubt Bush even knows who you are. Of course you can see how Pat Robertson's comments aren't helping the situation any.
