We do know that a third carrier strike force is steaming toward the Persian Gulf. We do know about troop escalation in Iraq.

You'll notice that a new voice has surfaced in True North, that of Michael Garvin, Doctor of Hintology. Don't miss his excellent advice on how to deal with a door's squeaking hinges. I tested the method and was amazed at the results. See you tomorrow Meanwhile,
Take it easy, but take it.
