Some thoughts...

I just want to say first and foremost that Red Sox DH David Ortiz is in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that whatever is wrong with him is taken care of during the offseason, if not this season.

Well, don't expect Jessica Simpson to be performing anytime soon. The blonde singer has lost her voice. Look at it this way, she won't be caught lip-synching.

Former Virginia Governor Mark Warner has expressed his feelings with regards to Iraq. I can't say that I'm not surprised that he's joining the vast number of Americans that want our troops out of Iraq but he did not embrace a time table.
Former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner said in Iowa Monday that the United States should begin to withdraw troops from Iraq, which represents a shift for the Democrat who is taking steps toward a run for president in 2008.

But Warner, who kicked off a two-day trip through the lead-off caucus state, stopped short of embracing a timeline to have troops out of Iraq, unlike Sens. Joe Biden and Russ Feingold, who are also in Iowa this week.

Warner’s statement that "we’ve got to find a way out of Iraq" marks a departure from the wait-and-see stance he articulated this summer, when he said withdrawal should be an option. The statement also coincides with growing support among Americans to bring the troops home, which recent polls show a majority of Americans favor.
Make sure to visit Barry Welsh's campaign site. This is an excerpt from a campaign email.
Political professionals said we didn't stand a chance of being here. Now they are saying, "Whatever you have been doing, keep doing it!" They said, "If you are still standing by Labor Day, you have a chance to win." Well, we are standing. Thank you for standing with us.

This year, due to the incredible combination of radicalism and incompetence displayed by Republicans from George W. Bush to Mitch Daniels, people are highly motivated to take our country back.
In Red Sox news, other than the vast injuries to the club...

Losing pitcher - Josh Beckett (14-9)

Curt Schilling will guarantee his status as a Hall of Famer today as he is currently struck out 2,999 victims (probably some of those were multiple offenders) from 858 batters.

Are you f***ing insane?!? I know it's free speech but you have got to be kidding me?!? Excuse me while I silenty go use all the four letter words that I refuse to use in daily life because it's just wrong.
Bill Tumpowsky, chairman of the Jewish Community Relations Council, said he expected the city would grant the permit. He and others remain concerned.
"We collectively stand in tremendous support of the First Amendment," he said. "This has many members of the Jewish community frightened. When you say, 'Death to Israel,' it speaks death to Jews. We're deeply saddened to see that form of ugly bigotry express itself here in Salt Lake City."
He encouraged people who oppose Breeze's message to express their opposition Wednesday.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Jewish citizens of Salt Lake City.
