That book is the accounting book detailing where the money went for "the greatest infrastructure bill in United States History", passed less than a Senate ago.
Even Rummy's Uncle Dick could not fathom it, so when Dredd Blog asked askance about the mystery, only crickets could be heard in reply.
Both of these books seem to be books not yet deciphered by the world's decoding experts, or perhaps it is simply that "the books" were Texas Textbooks seasonally doomed to the lotto recycle bin.
I ask because today on Morning Java they were all talking about our degenerating infrastructure, which appears to be a codeword for "earmarks".
Especially since "global wierding" (a.k.a., by the wayback hominids, "the greatest hoax ever fostered on the American Public") is having its way with our infrastructure, and not only that, it is having its way with the infrastructure of many nations:
Insurers will take note, as will those developing policies for adapting to climate change. "This has immense importance not just as a further justification for emissions reduction, but also for adaptation planning," says Michael Oppenheimer, a climate-policy researcher at Princeton University in New Jersey, who was not involved in the studies.(The Journal Nature). Regular readers of Dredd Blog know that we have always understood that mental wierding must precede global wierding, not the other way around.
There is no doubt that humans are altering the climate, but the implications for regional weather are less clear. No computer simulation can conclusively attribute a given snowstorm or flood to global warming. But with a combination of climate models, weather observations and a good dose of probability theory, scientists may be able to determine how climate warming changes the odds. An earlier study, for example, found that global warming has at least doubled the likelihood of extreme events such as the 2003 European heatwave.
In a sense global wierding feeds on mental wierding (Dredd Blog calls it the "egoecocycle"), and vice versa, so the bleep goes on doncha know.
Thus, we can conclude that we have passed both the peak of good weather, and the peak of sanity.
They are talking about helping the situation by building a speed train in the W direction which begins and ends in Bubble On The Great.
Huffington Post has an interesting post about infrastructure spending ... spent on the infrastructure of foreign nations rather than the USA.
