All The Best


I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.

My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.

At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.

An elephant never forgets.
Be well.

Pro-democracy forces in Libya say at least seven of their fighters have been killed in a NATO air strike on the outskirts of the eastern town of Brega, as the battle rages on for control of the oil port.
NATO said on Saturday that it is investigating reports that a coalition warplane struck pro-democracy forces near the front line of the battle with fighters loyal to the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
Burnt out husks of at least four vehicles, including an ambulance, were seen by the side of the road near the eastern entrance to the oil town on Saturday, the Reuters news agency reported. Men prayed at freshly dug graves nearby as they buried their colleagues.
"Some of Gaddafi's forces sneaked in among the rebels and fired anti-aircraft guns in the air," Mustafa Ali Omar, a pro-democracy fighter said. "After that the NATO forces came and bombed them."
The Libyan government, meanwhile, has produced a video said to show civilians, including women and children, in a Brega hospital. They are believed to have been wounded as they tried to escape the air strikes.


  1. And if the rebs start killing civilians we'll bomb them for that too. We'll then be bombing both sides.

    heh, stalemate seen as most likely outcome.

    However the most expensive for us.

    Partition now in an amicable divorce.

    Good long article about Bernard Lewis and his views on the current situation.


  4. Bob-al-Harb: And if the rebs start killing civilians we'll bomb them for that too. We'll then be bombing both sides.

    Bob, "civilians" is Hillaryspeak for rebels. We are supposed to be protecting the rebels.

  5. Orders from Obama: 100% of federal vehicles must be green by 2015. All except his, that is.

  6. Fred Thompson: WA state wants $100 annual fee on electric cars to make up for lost gas tax revenue. Ah... a "taxing you for not being taxed" tax.

  7. "Pro Democracy Rebels?" That just about says it all for liberals, doesn't it.

  8. Hello TimothyJ, I haven't seen you before.

  9. Ah... a "taxing you for not being taxed" tax
