I get to take a comparatively lazy day, and I’m feeling somewhat lethargic, so I must need it. I’m having a fight with my mail order pharmacy. They sent me a different med than the prescription I told them to refill, and are questioning whether they should refund the charges, because they thought I had ordered it by mistake. I’m waiting for them to review it, buy am ready to remind them that Portland has another mail order pharmacy.

Andy is saying the same thing I was saying yesterday. He’s desperate for attention.
- How does O’Reilly explain his claim that he was in a war zone in the Falklands war between the United Kingdom and Argentina in 1982 when it appears that no American reporters were allowed in the war zone?
- What specifically was the "combat situation in Argentina during the Falklands War" that he "survived" to write about in a 2004 column?
- Can O’Reilly elaborate on the claim he made to Tucker Carlson in 2003 that "I’ve covered wars, okay? I’ve been there. The Falklands, Northern Ireland, the Middle East. I’ve almost been killed three times, okay.’" Like the circumstances in which he almost died?
- About that "war zone" in Argentina, where his photographer "got run down and then hit his head and was bleeding from the ear on the concrete" and O’Reilly heroically saved him: "When and where did this happen?"
