It's the beaver moon because it's the time of year that the beavers are the busiest getting settled in for winter.
However, it also seems to be the time of year that can just "frost" all reasonable people.
For example the news that an Australian Muslim cleric stated that women who don't wear head scarves are "uncovered meat" who invite rape.
The death toll in Iraq.
John Kerry trying to tell jokes. John McCain, who claims to be Kerry's friend, and his condemnation. Some friend.
Cheney, Rumsfeld and McCain, of all people, on torture.
Bush and Congress on habeas corpus.
This whole election season. Both sides.
And "snowmen" all.
