September 20th, 2001 - 7:37 p.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
I started an entry at about 8:30 this morning, but my computer restarted itself during the day, so the whopping paragraph I wrote before taking a nap was erased. I'm not too annoyed by this however, so that's okay. I'm not bothered by it at all actually, which is good. I need to update more often...a *lot* more often. Well, in the next day or so anyway. Maybe I'll just cheat and do three or four really short ones. That could work. Maybe that's what I'll do. Sounds good. So, I think this entry will have the day and a news article. Yep. So that means that today,
September 20 is ... National Punch Day (I don't get it...which sort of punch are they talking about here? Is this a day where you're supposed to go punch someone in the face or are they celebrating something similar to Hawaiian Fruit Punch?)
Do I have anything interesting to put in between the space taken by the day and the space taken by the news? Not really? Okay then. It rained all day here today. It was lovely.

THINGS WE DON'T UNDERSTAND
When did Libya's Moammar Gadhafi become a voice of reason?
At a rally Sunday night, Gadhafi said the United States has the right to avenge last Tuesday's suicide bombings against New York and Washington but warned that hitting Afghanistan would not end violence in the world.
"The United States today has the right to take revenge following the disastrous hit it received," he said. "But would revenge end this tragic play in the world? Revenge would not do any good to the United States, but searching for the cause (of terrorism) would."
"The United States hitting Afghanistan would not end violence in the world," Gadhafi added He called on Washington to be wise and resort to reason, and said the United States should be responsible "for peace and wisdom."
The Libyan leader repeated his condemnation of the attacks that destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York and damaged the Pentagon near Washington, saying "what happened in the United States terrorized us and is an unexpected catastrophe that equals a new world war."
I don't think that's how his name is spelled, but it is rather surprising that this guy could be more rational than many of the people in our government and in our nation. Whee. Isn't that fun? Now that it's been an hour since I started this, I'd consider writing more, but I don't want to and there are other things which need to be done so I'll update again later. "Later" is a rather elastic concept, don't you think?
