Tiffany's store in Palo Alto looted

San Jose Mercury News reports:
Two masked men entered a crowded Tiffany & Co. jewelry store in the Stanford Shopping Center late Saturday, smashed a glass case and made off with an unknown amount of jewelry, according to the Palo Alto Police Department.

Never heard anything like this in this area before.

What a difference 7 years can make

(Via the Economist blog) George W. Bush's acceptance speech for the Republican nomination on August 3rd 2000 started with the following words:
I am proud to have Dick Cheney at my side. He is a man of integrity and sound judgment, who has proven that public service can be noble service. America will be proud to have a leader of such character to succeed Al Gore as Vice President of the United States.

Red Mosque = Golden Temple

This Time magazine article, "Believers Under Siege in Pakistan" gives a first-hand account of the situation at the Red Mosque in Islamabad. It sounds very similar to the Golden Temple siege in Amritsar. I hope the Pakistan government handles the situation with more tact and patience.
