Condoleeza Rice was nominated today as Colin Powell's replacement for Secretary of State. I'm not sure why this is news because it has been presupposed for months. Colin Powell has been known to be a one-termer and Dr. Rice's degree is in political science specializing in foreign relations. While I don't like her, I think she operates under the Henry Kissinger doctrine, strong arm to get what you want and if that doesn't work, deal under the table, I think she will be a better Secretary of State than she was a National Security Advisor. One thing is certain, the alienation of our allies will continue.

On a completely different note, Dr. Dre was attacked last night and a man was stabbed at the Vibe Awards. Snoop Dogg and Quincy Jones were onstage preparing to honor Dr. Dre, who was standing off stage with his wife, when a young man approached him, asked him for an autograph, and punched him in the face when he was preparing to give him an autograph. All hell then broke loose. Young Buck is wanted by police for allegedly stabbing the man who punched Dr. Dre.

And now we come to those soldiers who were killed in April of 2003. 73 Americans lost their lives which made it the 6th deadliest month in the war's history. By comparison, the 82 American's killed so far this month tie it for the second deadliest month.
