This growing war between Israel and Hezbollah...The media spins very negatively regarding the US government reaction, or lack thereof. But wouldn't it be hypocritical for Bush to condemn Israel for invading/bombing an entire country to get rid of a terrorist group? But the poor innocent Lebanese, Israelis that are being wounded and killed...And the poor Iraqis...Did I hear 20,000 Iraqis have died during our occupation? How was that number calculated? How is it justified? Can we be forgiven for this? Is all this our fault, Bush's fault? I wonder what approval polls for Bush have done since this began.
The first casualty of war is truth...and innocence.

Perfection, the enemy of the good.
Watched a few episode of Survivorman, and have been so impressed with it's creator, Les Stroud. Fascinating filmmaking, all done by Les while alone in the wilderness. Astounding. He has at least two cameras set up and running at any one time--maybe three sometimes. And he's out there trying to survive and set up all the shots. His in the field narration is excellent, as are his voice overs. He even does the music.
To paraphrase Albert Einstein:

Watching Nadal play Federer in the 2006 Wimbeldon final. Nadal has won a set! Something no one has done to Federer in 35 matches! At this moment, you can see that Nadal believes he can win...on grass...against the best grass player in the world. Nadal believes, and some of us spectators do as well. So interesting to see and feel the psychology shift. It's movement, when so often (in the moment) the psychology feels fixed.
Even so, the reality shifted back, Federer ultimately won. But without the faith of Nadal, such difficult accomplishments are not even attempted. It's all about faith in the future, change.
