Speech to the 2004 Democratic National Convention

If you didn’t get a chance to see or hear John Kerry’s speech last night, here’s the text of his speech.  What was not in the speech was his opening line—“I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”

Remarks of John Kerry
For Immediate Release
Boston, MA - We are here tonight because we love our country.
We are proud of what America is and what it can become.
My fellow Americans: we are here tonight united in one simple purpose: to make America stronger at home and respected in the world.
A great American novelist wrote that you can’t go home again.  He could not have imagined this evening.  Tonight, I am home. Home where my public life began and those who made it possible live.  Home where our nation’s history was written in blood, idealism, and hope.  Home where my parents showed me the values of family, faith, and country.
Thank you, all of you, for a welcome home I will never forget.
I wish my parents could share this moment.  They went to their rest in the last few years, but their example, their inspiration, their gift of open eyes, open mind, and endless world are bigger and more lasting than any words.
I was born in Colorado, in Fitzsimmons Army Hospital, when my dad was a pilot in World War II.  Now, I’m not one to read into things, but guess which wing of the hospital the maternity ward was in?  I’m not making this up.  I was born in the West Wing!
My mother was the rock of our family as so many mothers are. She stayed up late to help me do my homework. She sat by my bed when I was sick, and she answered the questions of a child who, like all children, found the world full of wonders and mysteries.
She was my den mother when I was a Cub Scout and she was so proud of her fifty year pin as a Girl Scout leader. She gave me her passion for the environment.  She taught me to see trees as the cathedrals of nature. And by the power of her example, she showed me that we can and must finish the march toward full equality for all women in our country.
My dad did the things that a boy remembers.  He gave me my first model airplane, my first baseball mitt and my first bicycle.  He also taught me that we are here for something bigger than ourselves; he lived out the responsibilities and sacrifices of the greatest generation to whom we owe so much. 
When I was a young man, he was in the State Department, stationed in Berlin when it and the world were divided between democracy and communism. I have unforgettable memories of being a kid mesmerized by the British, French, and American troops, each of them guarding their own part of the city, and Russians standing guard on the stark line separating East from West. On one occasion, I rode my bike into Soviet East Berlin. And when I proudly told my dad, he promptly grounded me.
But what I learned has stayed with me for a lifetime. I saw how different life was on different sides of the same city. I saw the fear in the eyes of people who were not free.  I saw the gratitude of people toward the United States for all that we had done. I felt goose bumps as I got off a military train and heard the Army band strike up “Stars and Stripes Forever.” I learned what it meant to be America at our best. I learned the pride of our freedom.  And I am determined now to restore that pride to all who look to America.
Mine were greatest generation parents. And as I thank them, we all join together to thank that whole generation for making America strong, for winning World War II, winning the Cold War, and for the great gift of service which brought America fifty years of peace and prosperity. 
My parents inspired me to serve, and when I was a junior in high school, John Kennedy called my generation to service.  It was the beginning of a great journey ñ a time to march for civil rights, for voting rights, for the environment, for women, and for peace. We believed we could change the world. And you know what? We did.
But we’re not finished. The journey isn’t complete.  The march isn’t over.  The promise isn’t perfected.  Tonight, we’re setting out again.  And together, we’re going to write the next great chapter of America’s story.

FBI: Trace amounts of ricin found in baby food

Now why would Muslim extremists try and kill/injure innocent babies?  Well, maybe because they aren’t Muslim.  We don’t have American terrorists.  Right USA government?  They all come from somewhere else.

Wednesday, July 28, 2004 Posted: 10:24 PM EDT (0224 GMT)

IRVINE, California (AP)—Two jars of baby food purchased at the same store were contaminated with ground-up castor beans containing tiny amounts of the poison ricin.

Police said Wednesday they were looking for a man who may have witnessed the contamination of the jars, which also included notes that referred to an Irvine police officer.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials who tested the baby food said the ricin was not in the purified form that can be deadly. Rather, it was a less toxic, natural component of the castor beans, which can be obtained from ornamental plants.

“It’s unlikely there would be serious injury with the level of castor bean found in those two jars we tested,” said Dr. David Acheson, chief medical officer with the FDA’s Center for Food, Safety and Applied Nutrition.

Small amounts of the food were eaten, but the babies had no symptoms, he said. No arrests have been made.

Authorities called it an isolated case and said no more contamination was found at the store where the two jars were bought. “There’s no reason to believe there is any more out there,” said Dan Henson, a special agent with the FDA.

More food for though.

Botanicals? In NJ? Anyone?

RUSSELL SIMMONSí WIFE ARRESTED: Kimora Lee caught with weed in the car

Yo, another bust.....

(Jul. 30, 2004) Youíd think someone with as much to lose as Kimora Lee Simmons ñ the woman so ready to show off her museum-like homes on both ìCribsî and last Decemberís ABC special ìLife of Luxuryî ñ would not be riding around Saddle River, NJ with weed in the car.
The 29-year-old wife of rap mogul Russell Simmons, however, was pulled over near the couple’s estate for driving erratically and ignoring the flashing lights of a cruiser for nearly two miles.

The former model was arrested just after midnight Monday and charged with eluding an officer, possessing marijuana, careless driving and operating a vehicle while possessing a drug. She was issued a Municipal Court summons, according to published reports.

its really tough being a star

from rape allegations, to embezelment, and of course the overly exposed “betty ford” centers, startin’ chronic, quitin’ chronic; it would be nice to face a billion dollar challenge in a dodge viper.

Teen actress and pop icon Mary-Kate Olsen has been released from a health care facility where she underwent six weeks of treatment for an eating disorder widely reported to be anorexia, her spokesman said Monday.

Why rape her?  Why not rob her?  You’ll get less time in jail.

I’ll never have to worry about being charged with rape.  I’ll never make enough money to be a target. Sorry, that was crude.

Anthony Anderson was charged Wednesday with aggravated rape while in Memphis, Tennessee.


MEMPHIS, Tennessee (CNN)—Actor Anthony Anderson, who appeared in the films “Me, Myself and Irene” and “Barbershop,” was charged Wednesday with aggravated rape after a woman told authorities she was assaulted on the set of a movie.

Anderson, 33, and Wayne Witherspoon, 42, both of Los Angeles, California, were taken into custody Tuesday night after the woman reported the assault, said Steve Shular, Shelby County Sheriff’s Department public affairs officer.

Anderson was in Memphis shooting a movie titled “Hustle & Flow.” Witherspoon was working on the film’s crew.

Rape (I mean read) more

Doctors without borders are leaving Afghanistan.

I guess that the police ‘Stan are too weak to protect the innocent.  And the legal system is either disinterested or unable to help find the killers.

Aid doctors to leave Afghanistan

The Taleban claimed responsibility for the June attack
Aid agency Medecins Sans Frontieres says it will pull out of Afghanistan because of the killing of five of its staff and the risk of further attacks.
The group said it was unhappy with a government probe into the June deaths.

It also accused US-led forces in Afghanistan of using humanitarian aid for “military and political motives”. The US military rejected the claims.

The Nobel prize-winning agency has continued to operate through the country’s upheavals for 24 years.

The BBC correspondent in Kabul, Andrew North, says the decision of MSF (Doctors without Borders) is sending shockwaves through the country’s aid community.

People are questioning whether we are allied with the military… We have to struggle to convince them we’re not

Kenny Gluck, MSF head in Afghanistan Some experts say the move will have a knock-on effect on other aid groups.

Kenny Gluck, head of MSF operations in Afghanistan, criticised the Afghan government’s failure to prosecute those responsible for the deaths of the MSF workers in the 2 June attack.
