Right, left, for, against, pro, anti, American, Canadian, European, African, citizen, politician, media darling, abjectly stupid blonde...it doesn't matter. Fools all.

With one exception; a short, terse, cut-to-the-heart Blackberry transmission by a human being about to die. Perhaps over the next few days we would all do well to remember and to hug the people who matter to us.

Pax,
Scott

Very well said.

I followed every one of those descriptors and was able to match to the individual, however the abjectly stupid blonde could have been any one or all of four or five subjects.

It seems the last couple years the looney bin factor has been escalating at a sum squared pace.

My imagination runs amok at times, and it is possible to believe they're all in kahoots together. On a global scale all these crazy bastards are just playing a huge practical joke on us, they're just waiting for the crescendo to reach a frenzied pitch of such ingenious unbelievability before the punchline rolls around when they jump collectively out from behind the curtains and exclaim 'It was all just some wacked out reality show! We now go back to our regularly scheduled program!'

Cue Twilight Zone theme:
