Big difference between 1994 and now? The internet.  My guess is the Weiner scandal would’ve earned a big fat NOTHING if it hadn’t have been for Fox and the blogosphere.

Monument Fire, AZ

http://www.inciweb.org/incident/2324/

29,065 acres at 59 percent contained.  Structures are threatened and evacuations are in effect.

Resources on Fire:  There are 1,176 people assigned to the fire, including 26 crews, 86 engines, 7 helicopters, 1 single-engine air tanker, 2 heavy air tankers, and 2 dozers.

Today, crews continued to construct, reinforce, and secure the line between the Garden and Monument fires. At the upper end of Carr Canyon, “hot shot” hand crews, with close air support, are constructing hand line to keep the fire from spreading north into Ramsey Canyon. Night operations will focus on line improvement and mop up, while continuing to burn out areas west of the evacuated neighborhoods to strengthen control lines in the Carr Canyon and Garden Canyon road areas. Engines will continue to patrol and mop up hot spots.

Crews from Fort Huachuca constructed and improved lines to reduce fuels along the Garden Canyon Road and elsewhere on base. Tonight they will burn out a protective strip near Garden Canyon with assistance from Monument Fire crews. On the southwest perimeter, crews held the fire in check on the ridge between Blind and Ida canyons using retardant, hand line, and burn out.

Within the next 12 hours, limited fire movement is expected down Carr Canyon NE towards State Road 92 and backing west into the Miller Wilderness.

Evacuations have been lifted except for the area west of State Road 92 south of Ramsey Road and north of White Lily, which includes 316 homes. State Road 92 was reopened at noon today with a 45-mph speed limit. No permits are needed for residents returning to their homes in the reopened area. Call the Joint Information Center for updates or visit the walk-in center at the Windemere Hotel to view large-scale maps and speak to fire staff.

Includes helicopter dropping water. Just like the movies do it. It must help, or they wouldn’t bother. But honestly … the scale makes it look like someone spitting into a bonfire.

Depends on what the meaning of “hostilities” is…

posted by Bob

When it comes to meanings of words, many politicians subscribe to the thumbscrew theory of lexicography: torture the language until it says what you want it to say. Bill Clinton concerned himself with little words like “is,” but Barack Obama has bigger fish to fry: he wants to redefine the word “hostilities.” The Bard of Murdock elaborates:

For Democratic presidents
Afflicted with precision,
The definition of a word
Can be a grave decision.

It stands to reason that elites
Who take a small excursion,
Would want to find replacement words,
And with them a diversion.

But stupid is as stupid does
And ‘is’ is self-defining;
No matter how Bill Clinton spins,
The word needs no refining.

A decade later, once again
We’re back to definitions,
This time primarily with guns,
With bombs and live munitions.

The President prefers what he
Would call kinetic action;
He hates the word hostilities,
Preferring an abstraction.

I’m sure Gaddafi and his friends
Might raise a point of order,
As NATO’s bombs drop left and right
Inside their country’s border.

But if we were to call it war
Then, per our Constitution,
It would require Congress pass
An awkward resolution.

So following in Bubba’s steps
And Democrat tradition,
The President just redefines
And doesn’t seek permission.
