In which David collects random thoughts

The recent Jet Blue landing (with the front gear sideways) was the perfect media event. Fatalities were avoided and the media had plenty of time to set up. Anyone who's ever flown could relate to the terror.

A Peace March against the Iraq war? I'm pleased an anti-war movement has formed even without a draft. But I think withdrawal will cause more problems for US in the long run than suffering through. We're stuck over there. (Hey, and I still call myself a liberal).

Millions of dollars made by rock tours this year: Stones, U2, Eagles, Paul of the Beatles. People are willing to pay big bucks to hear their old "friends". Exactly the same reason people go to classical music concerts.

I'm a luddite. I tried a high-tech disposable 3-blade razor for almost a year. But I'm back to my tried-and-true double-edge safety razor - used it since I was a teenager. It's cheaper, less wasteful and gets my face lots smoother. Slightly more nicks. (3 blades is old hat. They have 4 and 5 blade ones now.)
