Friday Ark #206

We’ll post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and….?

Visit all the boarders, Link to the Ark and check back for updates through Sunday afternoon!

You can board the Friday Ark by submitting your post here, leaving a comment or a trackback to this post or emailing fridayark AT

You can find previous editions at the not quite up to date Arkives page.

Alert 12:36 PDT: The Ark Staff has a couple of weddings to attend today. We may do some more updates tonight but it is more likely that there will be no more updates until Saturday morning.

obama’s speech

Russell Korobkin details some praise for obama’s speech tonight which I generally agree with and then notes two weaknesses of which this is the 2nd:

Failing to attack the Bush administration for trampling the Constitution, trashing privacy rights, and mistreating prisoners of war.

Perhaps obama, as candidate for commander-in-chief, did not make this attack because he does not have a problem with at least the first two items on this list.

Or perhaps he fears the loss of too many votes from the Brooks and Dunn crowd, you know, the republicans.

Quote of the Day #6: Get Off Your Ass

If we sit on our heels and wait for some apocalyptic insurrection or some evolutionary stage, which, to be frank, doesn’t look as if it is coming, then we will find that any instinct for mutual aid and spontaneous order will have been crushed by the religious worship of our great and benevolent welfare state.
