Bush’s State of the Union address is Tuesday night, and since this is a family website, I will have to recommend that you don’t try this at home. :)
Newington High’s girls basketball team beat the Lancers in a crucial conference showdown Saturday. Newington is now in a two-way tie (instead of a three-way) atop the CCC South.
The conference standings now look like this:
Bristol Eastern 4-2
New Britain 4-2
Bristol Central 2-4
The saga of the seagull continues. The Mom & Dad blog has the latest.
We all know about the deadly suicide bombing in Baghdad, but unless you read InstaPundit, perhaps you haven’t heard about the failed bomb attack in Tikrit late Saturday. One of the bombers was a nephew of Saddam Hussein.
When Saddam was captured, I seem to recall Sean writing, on this website, that this capture would settle once and for all the question of whether the Iraqi resistance terrorists were really “Saddam loyalists,” or not. If they were, Sean said, presumably they would stop their attacks now that Saddam was captured; and if the attacks continued, that would prove they weren’t really Saddam loyalists after all, but just… I dunno, generic angry Iraqis I guess? Well anyway, I always thought that line of reasoning was silly, and now it’s been definitively proven wrong. Saddam Hussein is in U.S. custody, and the attacks by Saddam loyalists — nay, Saddam blood relatives — continue.
