- Good news on why a stable Yuan is good. The big picture appears to be that the U.S. needs to fix it's economy and China needs to spend it's money!. To move the Yuan up would depress U.S. consumer demand because imports from China would be more expensive, and inflation would rise in China with it's products which are not produced in the U.S..This would result in U.S. consumers paying more for these products or buying them from another country.
- Another twist in the Iraq war. Arab and kurdish military commanders are at differences in political view points. Place in point Kirkuk. The Kurdish Peshmerga wants it and the Iraqi's want it.

Hey Judy, I went to our Lady of Lourdes School yesterday for Vets day. The students did a good job on posters, we sang some songs with the students and a vet from Iraq had a story to tell. I wish you had been with me so I could show you the school I went to when I was a little boy. We could send our children to this school and they would get a good education. They also had a program at the high school but I will go to that one next time. We are all proud to be Americans here in Little Falls as you and I are also. But they didn't want us in San Diego, at the Sun Cafe! .
