1. Hey, this is good news: having now pared all funding for Iraq reconstruction down to security and police (in other words, protecting the contractors who are over there looting what's left to loot), the Bush administration is going to drop ALL funding for reconstruction in the next fiscal year. We broke it, but we ain't gonna buy it! Surely this is good news for Iraq, and won't at all plunge the country into a nightmare of poverty and ruin that will simply set the stage for more terrorism and/or another brutal dictator. Way to plan, Mr. President!

2. Totally unrelated, here's today's QUOTE OF THE DAY, from Milton Mayer's excellent study They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-1935.

"What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it."
