More Praise for Netflix

Netflix has a new service which I absolutely love. In addition to getting traditional dvd's, they now allow you to watch movies online. Granted the number of titles are limited, but there are LOTS of movies available. Today during lunch I watched the documentary "No End In Sight" which was nominated for Best Documentary at this year's Oscars. It tells the story of all of the blunders that were made in Iraq which brought us to where we are today. It truly is eye-opening and shocking. It actually started to remind me of "Downfall", the classic movie of Hitler's last days in Berlin. In this case Rumsfeld and Cheyney are Goebbels and Himmler as they tell Adolph Bush (and the American public) that everything is just peachy. All of the mis-steps we have made over the past 5 years are just truly shocking. If you want to know the backstory of everything that went on after the fall of Saddam and the royal screw-ups in policy that lead us to the the insurgency of today, rent this film.
