Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Can We Kill the Beast?

Published on Monday, December 19, 2005 by

During World War II, around the time of the Battle of Stalingrad (considered the bloodiest battle in human history) the Russians had a toast.
They?d drink To the Breaking of the Back of the Fascist Beast.
The ritual caught on, even in the west, and many of us raised our glasses to it.
The Russians eventually succeeded in their drive, and the free world rejoiced, when on February 2, 1943 a good chunk of Hitler?s Nazi army became toast. In the Battle of Stalingrad, the Wehrmacht lost their 6th Army and 4th Panzer Army totaling about 850,000 men. Russian casualties were around 1.2 million, civilian and military. The joke going around then was, ?at that rate, pretty soon, no more Germans?.
