Friday, 9:30 AM. 12 degrees F, wind variable very light. The humidity is 89%, the barometer stands at 29.96 in. It is foggy and overcast and snowing moderately. I just shoveled 3+” and will need to shovel again before I go to get the mail. Our snowfalls often don’t seem like much but they can just keep on going, like the Energizer Bunny. The channel is not visible but my guess is that it has a light covering of ice and snow, since it has been cold with little or no wind.
The Administration is now saying that, of course, Al Qaeda is rampant in Libya, Algeria, Mali and other parts of North Africa. We are even supporting French military efforts to combat it in Mali. The Jihadists evidently were not there at all only a few months ago, when they were supposedly defeated, and they were certainly not a threat in Benghazzi before the fatal attacks of September 11th, 2012, and all this resurgence took place or came to light only after the November Presidential election. Things sure change fast these days. If it weren’t all so tragic it might be the subject of another propaganda movie, like The Great Dictator, staring Charlie Chaplin.
