Apollo 4 on column of fire

Muskrat

While on my walk Sunday I watched a muskrat that was eating water plants at the edge of a marsh beside the road. If it knew I was there, that didn’t disturb it any.

Fear of blabbery

Well, now, a commutation—presumably Bush was afraid that prison would make Libby talk, and was not sufficiently courageous to risk obstruction of justice investigations and loss of Libby’s 5th amendment right, which the pardon so many people have expected would instigate. This was much safer for Bush than a pardon, although it does bring the spotlight onto Bush and I don’t care what difference it makes to Lewis Libby.
