Class distinction ,. and War

As a child I loved the Story "Toad of Toad Hall"(If you read this, Jenny,I know You will remember.)., O'K I know you read ALL.

"Toad of Toad Hall" was adapted by A.A. Milne from "The wind in the Willows", written by Kenneth Grahame, every British school child remembers same.,of course A.A. Milne is more well known for "Poo".

It is said the story depicts class distinction, i.e. The Toad represents the upper classes the badger and the Rat living in middle ground represent "the middle class"., the mole , living under the earth represents the lower classes.

Kind of obtuse I know, but seeing Harry Reid tonight reminded me of the story.

He looks more like a Weasel, a "bit of a rat", but does not represent the "Mole "he purports to.
This same Harry Reid, is depicted in the movie "Casino", a crook and a liar as well as a cheat., and they say "cheats do not prosper", Harry says otherwise.(watching Reid tonight , his "raspy voice, sounds like a Weasel.

I speak as a "Foreign" Vietnam Veteran,(Brit.) Where was Harry in 1966-74, ??, was he hiding in the L.D.S. "store house" .?

Since he "knows what is good for the rest of us including how to fight a war ", I question that , since he "ran the other way, trying to "keep pace with Bill Clinton".

Sad to say the Iraq situation is a travesty.

It was, from "day one", especially due to the fact that History and GEOGRAPHY
are subjects that are not taught in U.S. schools, if they were this situation would not have evolved., "good minds" and knowledgeable people would have been "at the helm"instead of people such as Bremmer, Cheyney and Bush.

It would seem that English is also "sorely lacking", in view of Presidential addresses.


I DO believe we are involved in a World War again'st "Fascist Moslems", very much similar to Nazi Germany., however, sad to say, "the Genie may have left the bottle", and because of the ineptness ( Bush administration combined with Opposition stupidity), we may not be able to "put the cork back".

Interestingly a court decision was rendered yesterday.

In Chicago, members of the Chicago mob, were convicted of murdering the Spilatro brothers.

As depicted in the movie "Casino", the Spilotros were befriended and supported by Sen.Harry Reid (Nev.),(portayed in the film by Tommy Smothers), I am not sure of the Presidential (law of sucsession but I believe his job as leader of the senate affords Reid, 3rd in line to the presidency, i.e after Bush and Cheyney) or is it that Pelosi is ranked third???

In any case a scary thought.

" Spilotro" a very ruthless person was portrayed by Joe Pesci , a very good actor, the character who portayed Reid, was equally ruthless, Mean, and very much the type who could kill "an innocent", very easily.,

in the film "Casino" the "Mob" lawyer who defended The Spilotro Bros. played himself, he went on to achieve great success in becoming the PRESENT day Mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman, another "bad guy" makes good, and now you know the rest of the story.!!
