Happy Chanuka... ()
Sorry. No ASCII chanukia this year. I thought it was time for a break.
If this is a terrible disappointment (yeah, right), here are the links to last year's first light and second light.

Sentiments for the Foreseeable Future
sentiment #1: IS IT PEACE YET???
sentiment #2: "... it is impossible to reason people out of affiliations they have not been reasoned into"--George Will
sentiment #3: "There ought to be a rule that, before peace processors move on to their next project, they have to visit the results of the last one. And then live in it while working on their plans to try it again."--Rick Richman, Current Jewish Issues
