December 2006: Inbrief

Quote of the Month:

“The President believes in fighting a war up to the last possible second.  Giving armed conflict every chance to succeed, until all violent means have been utterly exhausted. Only then, as a last resort, do we put diplomats on the ground for the grim task of talking.” John Oliver on The Daily Show, 12-4-06



-Read through 2nd draft of my middle grade historical fiction novel and made a chapter-by-chapter spreadsheet.  Whoo boy!  Some decent scenes surrounded by utter crap.
