A look ahead after Bush’s speech!

Brain juices can only take so much before they’re pushed over the edge. Yesterday, las night actually, I snapped at someone. After last week (WTC) and this week (Nimda) I needed some sleep. It seems that every night I get home, I grab my book Ender’s Game and I plug away at it. My eyes get blurry and then I fall asleep. Not the best of things for the body and mind. I need tomorrow very badly. I need something light on the grey matter.

But what’s happening instead? More and more things are happening and the tension is only going to grow. What does that mean? Time to suck it up – that’s what. I slept well last night. I’m feeling better with a clear mind and know that I can get through all this madness and not piss off everyone I know. With that release. I throw in a big-ol "Ahhhh"

NCCI Changes Position, Gives Employees American Flags

(Boca Raton, FL) NCCI Holdings, Inc., today announced that it has changedits position on flags in its workplace and offered employees American flags and red-white-and-blue lapel ribbons as they entered the workplace this morning.

President & CEO Bill Schrempf said he was meeting with employees this morning to explain the company’s change and apologize for not permitting them to display the American flag on Friday during the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance.

In announcing the change, Schrempf indicated that NCCI’s senior management team met over the weekend and decided to reverse the company’s longstanding position, which had been intended to protect employees.

This morning, the company took the following actions concerning the display of the American flag by its employees:

1. Any interested employee can display an American flag on their desktop. Flags will be provided for this purpose, if employees would like to have one to display.

2.Red, white & blue lapel remembrance ribbons are being provided for those who want to wear them.

Gotta love the opportunity the Internet provides – USE IT!

I’m glad to know I’m a part of all this, but WOW-o-WOW is it having an effect on us as a world. Just a thought, but imagine us living in the "Star Trek’ world where this type of thing just doesn’t happen. Ahhh, wouldn’t that be just so neat…<- meaning -> out
