Today, I looked out the window of class to see — snow! I was so excited that finally it had snowed in New York. But, to my great dismay only 5 minutes later the sky was totally clear. The ground wasn’t even damp at all. Damn you crazy weather!

ISRAEL has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iranâ€™s uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons.
Two Israeli air force squadrons are training to blow up an Iranian facility using low-yield nuclear â€œbunker-bustersâ€, according to several Israeli military sources.
Yikes. Well, I guess it’s better than Iran having the bomb.
UPDATE: Never mind…
Blizzard in Jerusalem, frosting in San Francisco Oakland, 68 degrees in New York (see today)? What’s the world coming to! Well, MSNBC says El NiÃ±o and the jet stream, but I have to say that I think Mr. Gore was right on the ball with this one. I mean, when New York breaks a record for longest period of time without snow (the previous was in 1877, in which it didn’t snow that season until January 5th or 4th), I think that this is more than just a natural cycle.
Also, today I just saw Letters from Iwo Jima. The film, which corresponds to Clint Eastwood’s other film about Iwo Jima, Flags of Our Fathers, is about the the famed battle from the Japanese perspective. It is very powerful and well done, and worthy of Best Picture (though it’ll never get it, as Clint Eastwood already has at least two), even though it is Japanese with English subtitles (which actually adds to the emotion and realism). It’s controversy makes it very interesting to watch (it doesn’t portray the Japanese as saints, but they’re not demonic either) and more intriguing than Flags of Our Fathers, which I still want to see.
