Army Earth Day

Again, the liberal Blogosphere has been found to be lacking.  We just never seem to catch the good news that would present our Government in a positive light.  Although this is old news, as "they" say, better late than never.

You can download an image suitable for printing as a poster, or images for computer wallpaper, here.  A short Quicktime movie is available here.

In other news, the luxury resort for Gitmo detainees has expanded its library.  Although the reading list is tightly controlled...
The library bans certain book categories, such as ones that deal in political thought.  "We try to keep people calm and not incite riots," Lori said.
...they have added another author to the approved list: J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter's worldwide popularity is so broad-based that it has become favorite reading for Islamic terror suspects at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay.

Lori, who for two years has overseen the detention center's library, said J.K. Rowling's tales about the boy wizard are on top of the request list for the camp's 520 al Qaeda and Taliban suspects, followed by Agatha Christie whodunits.

"We've got a few who are kind of hooked on it. A couple have asked if they can see the movie," said Lori, a civilian contractor who asked that her last name not be publicized.
