Good omen. Of sorts

Okay, I briefly caught this and just had a quick look:
The Kingdom Gets the War on Terror Right

Peter Berg's new film dares to portray Americans as the good guys.

The Kingdom, Universal's $70 million contribution to the burgeoning Iraq/War-on-Terror genre, will not hit theaters until September 28, but already word on the film is immensely encouraging: all the right people hate it.

(...) Berg needn't worry-I bet the film will be a blockbuster. In the suburban New York theater where I saw it, the audience, full of New York Times readers and NPR listeners, seemed not only shaken afterward, but a little confused: the Americans were the good guys, and they won. But reports have it that elsewhere in the country, audiences are cheering.

Out September 28 — there's the good omen to me.

And on that, my dear reader, I'm off, out of the door with my rifle on my back and headed to the woods. This is the first day of the season and nothing, short of a full-scale Islamic invasion, can keep me away from hunting wild boars and the mighty European Red Deer (if we're lucky) today.

Have a good one.

Belated good hunting! I got to see why bloglines is delaying feeds, I keep getting stuff a couple days late.

And to provoke a bit of weapons envy, on Sunday I got to fire 200rds through a Thompson M1A1. Out of the blue a friend called and asked if I knew anything about class 2 level maintence on Thompsons. Bet your bippy! He had not fired it much since inheriting it from his grandfather, and the times he had it had hung up and jammed repeatedly. So I got to do 2 of my favorite things, tear down and reassemble weapons, and fire weapons. A good day. Been a few years since I have fired a chopper and it is AWSOME!!!!

I have another 2 weeks till I can start hunting. Though I have shot 3 coyotes since last April.
