(Reuters) Ousting U.S. troops from Saudi Arabia became the battle cry of Saudi-born militant Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda network, blamed by Washington for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.Get out, infidels! Fine, have it your way.
The United States said on Tuesday it was ending military operations in Saudi Arabia and removing virtually all of its forces from the kingdom by mutual agreement following the Iraq war.

In the days of increased security measures and terrorism warnings, I can't believe our state government is actually thwarting law enforcement's efforts to keep people safe. I am now more scared of my fellow Minnesotans than of any terrorist group.I picture the letter-writer's fear list like this:
- Minnesotans who tote guns
- all Minnesotans (you never know who has a gun; they're concealed)
- snakes and spiders (tie)
- any terrorist group
- monsters under the bed
- her own shadow

(Pioneer Press) "This thing is so powerful," said [KSTP-TV weatherman Dave] Dahl, "where a 350,000- watt system can penetrate through one or maybe two storms, this, concentrates 32 billion watts through a 1-degree beam. That means it can penetrate up to five storms."This may also explain why my coffee isn't getting cold sitting on my desk.

(Badger Herald) Students living in the Langdon Street neighborhood awoke Tuesday to find nearly all of the area's sport utility vehicles and minivans had deflated tires.I imagine a few of the Langdon street frat boys will actually be pressing the gas just a little harder today and maybe taking an extra 10 MPG ride around the block before parking their noble steeds.

Happy hunting -- I would like to wish President Bush a belated happy Easter and hope that he had better luck finding the pretty eggs than he has had finding Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.I'm not counting on the president to find OBL or SH because now, much like the easter bunny, they only exist in peoples' minds. Or, you know, just like Paul Wellstone even though his pretty green campaign signs still dot the landscape.
(Charleston Post and Courier) AUGUSTA--It was a tough battle Saturday -- not between the golfers -- but between reporters and police officers over who had a larger presence at the protest just down the road from Augusta National Golf Club.There was no word on the whereabouts of his friend I.P. Freeley.
