Allen was on the NBC nightly news tonight! If you missed it, the video clip is online, but I don't know how long they keep this stuff on their site. He doesn't talk or anything, but you can see him.
In other news, I'm sure many of you read/heard that Rumsfeld was in Alaska this past weekend. Leaving his talk, I felt kind of ok about it. But, the more I thought about it, the worse I felt. He was asked if steps were being taken to find someone else to take the brigade's place in Iraq after the 120 days. Of course, I didn't expect him to say that we would definitely have them home in 120 days. (He didn't even know when the 120 days was over. He asked when it was over, and, in unison, we all answered December 13th.) The more I think about it, though, he could have made it sound a little less likely that they would be extended again. He said something about doing everything he could to make sure that our guys weren't extended again. Not enough. I thought maybe it was just me, being my worrying self. Tonight I was talking to other wives, who all were feeling worse about the extension since seeing Rumsfeld. I didn't really expect him to be a cheerleader or anything, but to make us all feel worse? He sucks.
