Donald Rumsfeld, a Cellar reader

On 1/2/2002, I created this image to make a point on this thread.



Then, this morning, Donald Rumsfeld is asked about the emergence of a North Korean nuclear reactor, and whether it's for power as the N Koreans say, or for nuclear fuel for bombs as the rest of the world says. And then he said:

"Their power grid couldn't even absorb that. If you look at a picture, from the sky, of the Korean peninsula at night, South Korea is lit, a booming, vibrant economy... North Korea is dark."

Good call, UT

Proving again that the cellar.org is nothing if not a trailblazer -- a veritable pathfinder -- shining light on truth and all that is right in the pursuit of a just and sustainable society, right? That's why I log on each time, how 'bout you?

Fun game to play: Match the names of members who have never posted to current high-ranking federal officials. Who might Rumsfeld be posing as, while nosing about this site? gr8geezer? DARKSYDE? Or, god forbid (don't ask, don't tell), GirLly or fairy?

Jesus! I hope Ashcroft doesn't visit too. I'll be picked up for some type of terrorism for sure.

not a rumsfeld... I swear

as new as I am to this board....am not now, nor have I ever been a rumsfeld., nor a reagan, nor a bush, nor a kennedy, nor the pope...although I do like his taste in gowns. Do you suppose he gets manicures?

Ok, but do you smoke? (Al flips a pack of smokes so that one cig is accessable through the top of the pack and offers it to Froon)

(Al takes a big drag of his cig which burns into the filter, burns his fingers and drops it)

I really like to smoke.

Did I ever tell you I was instrumental at initiating the internet?

quite all right, I read your sig(nature), and thought of that right away!

Since I've posted more than once, I suppose now that I've proven not to be Rumsfeld. Do you suppose I can be Mel Brooks instead?

No.

You can, however, be Robin Hood.
