Bush Sr. Apologizes To Son For Funding Bin Laden In '80s

(From The Onion, unfortunately. Wouldn't be nice if this were true?)

MIDLAND, TX --- Former president George Bush issued an apology to his son Monday for advocating the CIA's mid-'80s funding of Osama bin Laden, who at the time was resisting the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. "I'm sorry, son," Bush told President George W. Bush. "We thought it was a good idea at the time because he was part of a group fighting communism in Central Asia. We called them 'freedom fighters' back then. I know it sounds weird. You sort of had to be there." Bush is still deliberating over whether to tell his son about the whole supporting-Saddam Hussein-against-Iran thing.

Re: dissimilar, sigh.

Oooh, oooh, now I'm curious: *which* interest was it that led you to me?


I'm guessing not 'circus freaks'.


(Is that in my interests list? Gosh-darn-it it should be!)


Really. There isn't enough circus freak awareness.

I like to keep tabs on my fellow linguists.

(Aw, crap...Now I'm geeky AND I'm a stalker.)

Re: dissimilar, sigh.

See now you've recaptured my interest. I've always had a soft spot for optimality theory. And phonology... ! I was all happy when I learned that Apolo Ohno's father was Japanese. I was *so* concerned about that single-l previously.

Re: dissimilar, sigh.

See subject.

Ouch!

Stop. You had me at hello.

Hello. =)

(Going through old mail; rediscovered an old thread.)

See you 'round 'bout the 7th. I promise not to bring up phonology or optimality theory. =)

[btw, new stuff at http://cscott.net/Fuze now, if you're curious. Some recent personal events foreshadowed & treated...]
