CM PRESS # 888

NEXT! ALMOST DAILY DAILY PILOT EDITOR BRADY RHOADES HAS, UM, DECIDED TO SEEK OTHER OPPORTUNITIES
Link

If anyone knows the back story of why Rhoades is very suddenly no longer with the Pilot, please let us know. You can send anonymous comments to this blog. If you don't want your comments published, but just want us to have the information, clearly state that your comments aren't for publication and we'll honor that. Is Rhoades gone because of editorial decisions? Hiring decisions? Lack of advertising? Something else?

Although the CM PRESS has had running battles with a whole series of editors and others at the Pilot, we really appreciate having an almost daily paper newspaper in this area and we especially like the fact that the Pilot ties Newport Beach and Costa Mesa together.

UPDATE: 6:12 PM (after Obama's speech)
OBAMA SAYS WE'RE GOING IN BUT WE'RE PULLING OUT IN 18 MONTHS

Huh? Bellum interruptus? No doubt, some Taliban strategists will now tell their troops to melt back into the population for 18 months and then emerge in strength when the Obamatroops are gone.

Here are two things that we think have a high probability of happening: 1) The generals will ask for more troops and Obama will supply them. 2) In 18 months, Obama will say things were tougher than he thought and we have to stay for an indefinite period.

And in a longer view of history, we'll find that Afghanistan will not be Americanized and will become an even stricter Muslim nation and may actually become what the Taliban want.
In other words, we are, as someone said in the press today, on a fool's errand.

OBAMA EXPECTED TO SEND 34,000 MORE TROOPS TO THE BOTTOMLESS PIT THAT IS AFGHANISTAN

Hey Lefties, what do you think of your "change" guy Obama, now? He's doing the same stupid things that the idiot George Bush did. There's no change. Obama is just another incompetent punk politician sending our kids to die in a war that is absolutely meaningless and which won't make us any safer or better off here in America.

CHAMP FERMILAB LOSES ITS TITLE
As previously reported, the LHC became the most powerful particle collider on the planet yesterday. And, it wasn't run anywhere near full power. Barely worked up a sweat. LINK

It kind of reminds us of the old song:

Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

[Very quickly]
Now we're going a hundred twenty
As fast as I can go
The Rambler pulled along side of me
As if we were going slow
The fella rolled down his window
And yelled for me to hear
"Hey buddy how do I get this car out of second gear?"
