Ron Paul Letter Writing Campaign
Contribute as much as you can. If you can not be in Iowa, you could still do the needful by writing letters to voters urging them to know more about Dr Paul. He is still not getting enough media coverage, even though he has crossed the much awaited 12 mil mark!
Go Dr Paul!!

CNN: Military Sources Respond To McCain's Escalation Remark With 'Laughter Down The Line'
Yesterday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told radio host Bill Bennett that President Bush's escalation is working. "There are neighborhoods in Baghdad where you and I could walk through those neighborhoods, today," he said. Today, when CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked McCain why Americans still aren't able to safely leave the Green Zone in Iraq, the senator replied that Blitzer was giving three-month-old talking points:
General Petraeus goes out there almost every day in an unarmed humvee. I think you oughta catch up. You are giving the old line of three months ago. I understand it. We certainly don't get it through the filter of some of the media.
But according to CNN reporter Michael Ware, who has been in Iraq for four years, McCain is "way off base." He stated, "To suggest that there's any neighborhood in this city where an American can walk freely is beyond ludicrous. I'd love Sen. McCain to tell me where that neighborhood is and he and I can go for a stroll."
Ware also rebutted McCain's assertion that Petaeus travels in an unarmed humvee: "[I]n the hour since Sen. McCain's said this, I've spoken to military sources and there was laughter down the line. I mean, certainly the general travels in a humvee. There's multiple humvees around it, heavily armed."

McCain says what he really thinks about a poll showing that 60% of military families don't believe the war in Iraq justifies the cost.
Why doesnt this lady give up!? John McCain doesn't believe in facts. The Bush government doesnt believe in facts. The facts are for stupids.

Osama Bin Laden's latest video.
Am not sure if this is the full video or it truncated towards the end... but this sure has given some 'job security' to our media - they have something to report about every few minutes..
Oh well -- your comments are welcome.

Agar aap bus, train, plane ya kahin se bhi aa jaa rahe hon aur kisi mahila/ladki ke hath mein phool, dhaaga, ya chamakti hue koi bhi vastu dekhein to turant wahan se bhag jaye. Ye vastu RAKHI ho sakti hai. Apki zara si laaparwahi aapko BHAI bana sakti hai.

After SuperDaad's news [link], heres another weird guy... he became dad at the age of 90 and has no plans to stop!!
The world's oldest father has done it again, fathering a child for at least the 21st time, at the age of 90.
Indian farmer Nanu Ram Jogi, who is married to his fourth wife, boasts he does not want to stop, and plans to continue producing children until he is 100.
Mr Jogi admits he is not certain how many children his series of four wives have borne him - but counts at least 12 sons and nine daughters and 20 grandchildren.
Two-week-old daughter Girija Rajkumari is the latest addition to the proud father's family.
"I want to have more children. I can survive another few decades and want to have children till I am 100 - then maybe I will stop." Mr Jogi said.
Mr Jogi, who attributes his remarkable virility to daily walks and plenty of meat, said: "I eat all kinds of meat - rabbits, lamb, chicken and wild animals."
Mr Jogi fathered his eldest daughter, Sita Devi, in 1943. His latest wife, Saburi, who has given him seven children, was first married to his eldest son Shiv Lal, who died 10 years ago.
Speaking from the family home in a remote village in Rajasthan, she said:
"At first I didn't want to stay here after my husband died. But Nanu promised to look after me and now we have seven children."
Mr Jogi's children and grandchildren live in six houses attached to his two-storey family home.
He said: "I have a perfect life - with so many children and grandchildren all around me, it keeps me young."

A one-legged father-of-78 is preparing for his next two marriages as he closes in on his target of having 100 children by 2015.
UAE national Daad Mohammed Murad Abdul Rahman, 60, has already had 15 brides, though he divorces wives to make way for new ones in order to stay within the legal limit of four. His youngest child, Tariq, is 20 days old and his oldest, Ayoob, is 36. And he has more babies on the way from two of his three current wives.
Daad Mohammed lost a leg in a road accident and plans to have an artificial limb fitted in Jaipur in India – and while there he hopes to find one of his new brides. One more has already been lined up in Baluchistan, Pakistan.
“In 2015 I will be 68 years old and will have 100 children,” he said. “After that I will stop marrying. I have to have at least three more marriages to hit the century.
“Two of my wives are pregnant and they will give birth within two months. Tariq was delivered by my wife Mariam. He is healthy and happy and will have two more brothers or sisters soon. And I am also happy because Allah is giving me more children.” The retired truck-driver, policeman and soldier has two other babies – fourmonth-old Alma and eightmonth-old Sara.
Two other children, Adnan and Sulaiman, are under two years old. His wives and ex wives include Bedouins from the UAE plus women from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Iran and Oman. They live in Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. Daad Mohammed, whose home is in Al Bustan, Ajman, spends time with each of them and has a family get together every Friday.
He is head of possibly the largest single UAE dynasty with 127 members, including 49 grandchildren, and has 15 houses. Two of his wives have died. Now he is going to have the same type of artificial limb – known as the Jaipur foot – that Indian dancer Sudha Chandran uses.
“After Ramadan, I will go to Jaipur to get an artificial leg and marry a beautiful Rajasthani girl,” he told Emirates Today. “I have had seven Indian brides.
“At present I use a crutch to move around. I am told that the Jaipur foot works better than other artificial limbs.” Daad Mohammed said he received generous support from the Ajman Government, including houses and cash. He was paid a military pension of Dh24,000 a month by the Abu Dhabi Government.
“Even though my family is big, I don’t have any problem managing the budget,” he said. “If I buy fish for the entire family I have to spend a minimum of Dh500 per day. If the menu includes mutton at least Dh1,000 per day is required, and that’s just for the meat.” And despite having so many offspring he does not overlook the vital duty of any dad. He added: “I take care of their requirements – and pay pocket money to each and every child.”

Ma Tujhe Salaam -- Hats Off to her courage, determination and her willpower.
This video just woke me up. We all think we have problems, but look at this lady. She has lost both of her arms, but she lives absolutely a normal life as everyone else. She looks after her baby, drive a car, and even run a business at home! Hats off to her.

This story is unbelievable but very welcome and appreciated... some hope in a bright future...
In Japan, if a train is late by more than a few minutes, it is said that the Railways pay the consumer some compensation, or at least refund them their fare for the journey. Most Indian consumers would laugh even at the thought of the Indian Railways offering them such a facility.
That is why the order of the Andhra Pradesh State Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission in a recent matter (General Manager, South Central Railway vs. Vinod Sanghi & another) will come as a whiff of fresh air to the suffering Indian commuter.
Sanghi and a companion had booked tickets from Hyderabad to Delhi by Train No 2723, and had a further booking from Delhi to Haridwar, by a connecting train.
The Hyderabad-Delhi train was supposed to have reached Delhi by 8.40 am and the Delhi-Haridwar train was to leave some time shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, the train from Hyderabad was delayed by four hours, the passengers missed their onward connection and had to travel by another train for which the railways charged them an additional Rs500.
Sanghi protested against the unfair charge being levied on him. The railway refused to listen and Sanghi was forced to cough up the money. Sanghi then approached the District Forum at Hyderabad for the redressal. But the railways said the derailment of another train en route was the reason for the train to be delayed. They further stated that the consumers had thereafter cancelled their original tickets and bought fresh tickets for the other train.
After hearing both parties, the District Forum came to the conclusion that the delay in catching and/or missing the onward train was entirely the Railways fault and it would not be just to penalise the consumers for the same.
The District Forum held in the facts and circumstances of the case, the consumers should be paid a sum of Rs110, which they had lost on the cancelled tickets, refund of Rs500 that they paid in addition for the new tickets and a compensation of Rs500 for the harassment meted out to them.
The Railways went in appeal against the order, primarily on the ground that the claim should have been filed with the Railway Claims Tribunal and not in the Consumer Forum.
The State Commission negated this claim saying that the Consumer Protection Act was enacted specifically for relief to consumers. It said the District Forum was right in ordering the compensation to the aggrieved consumer and refused to interfere with the order of the lower court.

I was trying to map directions to a place I need to go over the weekend and look what I found! Google Map recommends I spend some time in the woods! :)
On a serious note, looks like the image is a bit old and that the roads are newly built - a small phase lag. Hard to find such inconsistencies with Google products - for me at least. Interesting to see that the hybrid view shows the roads (map) in the woods.

Am not sure what the source of these imges is -- I just got them in a forwarded email -- but the creativity is awesome. Pencil Art is one of my favorites. Very subtle, sublime, smooth art. This is more contemporary but still worth a few minutes. Looks like the artist is an architect too -- good understanding of angles and orthogonals
Please let me know if you know the artist -- I'd love to see more of his/her work.

As Bhojpuri movies outperform Bollywood in India, it is but natural that Bhojpuri movie makers desire to spread their wings ….. er ……… web. Today’s edition of “Uber Malarial Video” is, rightly, Spiderman speaking Bhojpuri. Hey, if he can speak in Punjabi, why not Bhojpuri? Also, check out the trailer for the upcoming desi-Spidey a.k.a Bajrangi in the same clip.

Adolph Hitler was a evil man. He may have had ideas and personality, that led to thousands of people following his ideals over the years, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t have the same problems as everyone else. Like what to leave on your answering machine message. Friendly? Direct? Cool? Or homo-erotic? I suppose it all depends on who might be calling you.

Great Amateur Haasya Kavi Archana from California.
Talks about Life of a married girl in USA on H4 Visa..
Archana recited a poem, Naukri ki Tokri -- a comedy depicting her experiences with the many jobs she tried, as an immigrant woman trying to balance her job and family.
Definitely worth a listen.

A few weeks ago, Dr. Wafa Sultan was a largely unknown Syrian-American psychiatrist living outside Los Angeles, nursing a deep anger and despair about her fellow Muslims.
Today, thanks to an unusually blunt and provocative interview on Al Jazeera television on Feb. 21, she is an international sensation, hailed as a fresh voice of reason by some, and by others as a heretic and infidel who deserves to die.
In the interview, which has been viewed on the Internet more than a million times and has reached the e-mail of hundreds of thousands around the world, Dr. Sultan bitterly criticized the Muslim clerics, holy warriors and political leaders who she believes have distorted the teachings of Muhammad and the Koran for 14 centuries.
She said the world's Muslims, whom she compares unfavorably with the Jews, have descended into a vortex of self-pity and violence.
Video here, and transcripts here.
