Soooooper Tuesday

I'm thrilled. Really. It may be hard to tell in between the coughing and sneezing, but I'm thrilled.

Obviously I'm less thrilled that our plan to wipe out weapons of mass destruction in Iraq seems to be causing massive destruction, but whatever.

Also, death in Pakistan is in the news.

No wonder I don't understand what's going on in Haiti. If half of this is true, we've been muddying the waters for years. But then, other stories insist we've been trying to bring Aristide down forever, which hardly aligns with the fact that we were largely responsible for putting him back in power after the military coup. (But I have doubts that we kidnapped Aristide. I mean, surely even we understand that if you kidnap someone, you don't hand them a telephone and invite them to tell the world about it?)

Seriously. Reading about Haiti, I feel like I'm straying far too close to the wingnut side of the left and since I'm still on three or four medications at this moment, I don't think my brain cells really need that kind of aggravation.

Moving on....

David Brooks is kind of an idiot and he shows it when he repeats those tired, old, conservative clichés about how all you need is to be sober and industrious and virtuous and you'll be successful. Forget helping the poor to education and jobs. What they really need are moral lessons.

Aack! Forgot my conference call....

Aristide = Castro Light

Does that help? :)
