   THE COFFEE BREAK - Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Left- and right-wing political commentators are tackling a
subject moderate Democrats and Republicans won't touch: 
U.S. Sen. John McCain's military record.

The latest salvos against the presumptive Republican 
presidential candidate's war record came from a liberal 
blog and from retired U.S. Army Gen. Wesley Clark, who
said he didn't think McCain's service as a fighter pilot
and prisoner of war was relevant to running the country,
Politico reported Monday. 

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., the likely Democratic nominee,
consistently praises McCain's military service, and called 
him "a genuine American hero."

Americablog's John Aravosis accused McCain, R-Ariz., of
"disloyalty" for his forced participation in propaganda
films and interviews after he was tortured, the Washington 
publication said. Others questioning McCain's record 
include the Huffington Post, the newsletter CounterPunch 
and a POW/MIA movement.

"(What) exactly is McCain's military experience that 
prepares him for being commander in chief?" Aravosis 

McCain spokesman Brian Rogers countered, "The American
people know that John McCain's record of service and 
sacrifice is not a matter of debate."

Aravosis noted similar charges were leveled against 2004 
presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass.  "(The) 
Republicans sported Band-Aids to mock John Kerry's medals 
from Vietnam. They mocked his injuries in war," Aravosis 
told Politico. "McCain isn't being mocked, he's being 
What are your thoughts on McCain's military record?

            Personalized drill leads to arrests
A Florida man was arrested after police found his name

tanks to steal fuel.  Authorities say the Summerfield, Fla.,
man and his girlfriend are accused of draining several 
tanks, the Ocala (Fla.) Star-Banner reported.  John
Oldenburg, 44, and Darlene Kimbriel, 39, face grand theft,
burglary of a conveyance and criminal mischief charges,
Marion County Sheriff's Office records show.  Deputies
allege they found a methamphetamine lab at the couple's 
home, so they also face drug charges.  Deputies say they 
found a drill with "J. Oldenburg" etched in the tool at 
the scene of the latest gas heist. Asked why his drill 
was at the scene, Oldenburg blamed his girlfriend, the 
newspaper reported.  Kimbriel, meanwhile, accused her

         English soon to include 1 million words
English is close to adding its 1 millionth word, with well
over 1 billion speakers worldwide, experts say.  Author 
Paul J.J. Payack, founding president of the Global Language
Monitor, estimates English will hit the vocabulary 
milestone April 29, 2009, MetaNewswire reported Sunday.
Currently, the English language counts about 1.35 billion
speakers as a first, second or auxiliary language.  With 
25 percent of the world speaking English, that's a lot of
sources for new words, suggests Payack.  The latest 
addition found by his tracking service is "e-Vampire." It 
is a noun referring to electric equipment that consumes
energy while in standby mode.

             Top dogs compete on surfboards
Canines of all types showed their stuff Saturday at a 
California surfing contest that owners claim their pets 
love as much as the audience.  The third annual Loews 
Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach
drew about 60 four-legged participants looking for prizes, 
medals and bragging rights. The dogs wore everything from 
swim trunks and Hawaiian leis to sunglasses, life vests
and wet suits, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.  The
event drew an estimated 1,500 to 2,000 spectators as well 
as news photographers fighting for positions in the surf
near the animals.  "It goes to show that dog surfing is 
part of the San Diego lifestyle," said Anne Stephany, a 
spokeswoman for the resort. "The best thing about this 
event is that no particular breed seems to do better than 
others. I've seen poodles, a bulldog, (a) Chihuahua. As
long as your dog loves the water, they're a great candidate 
for this sport."

What changes are you making to cover the increase in fuel 

"Driving less for sure!"

"One of the changes I've already made being a smoker, I 
bought a machine at a cigarette discount store and now 
roll my own. I use the new light bulbs, wash dishes when
I have to, don't shower every day, wash a full load of 
clothes and try to make all my errand running in one day."
