colony collapse
restless legs
identity theft
tainted eggs

leaded Barbie
cancer genes
home invasion
tainted greens

diseased hearts
deadly sin
broken parts
tumbling in

tasered youth
speech bereft
monks for truth
what love is left?

popping pills
guns in school
glossy pages
skinny cool

homeless nola
no one cares
bullies at war
shiny wares

early risers
sound alarms,
can’t convince
of coming harms

Shame on NBC

April 19, 2007

Imagine the pain of those families witnessing the murderous prelude to their loved ones’ death. Everywhere they turn is the last face their child saw.

Oh sure, Mr. NBC will say the “public has a right to know”. It would be “censoring” if they chose not to broadcast Cho Seung-Hui’s video and instead handed it immediately over to the police.

Bogus. Every day NBC “censors” out a hundred newsworthy stories because they are not sensational or sexy enough. NBC’s decision to broadcast the video is further evidence that network “news” is primarily gratuitous entertainment.

Whats next? Funniest Psycho Killer Home Videos?

All that is required –
blind obedience
to keepers of the “truth”.

( Not to truth –
but to its “keepers”. )

I am again without a computer for an indeterminate amount of time.  I will therefore not be visiting, commenting, or responding even at the paltry rate you are sadly accustomed to. 

Please pray for my computer.



rendition and rape

The United States
ought to be about
dialogue and diplomacy
solutions and life –

not attack and torture,
rendition and rape.

If I had my way,
If I had my way,
If I had my way,
I’d tear this building down.

so long suit

Goodbye pompous officious arrogant dismissive in-thinking betrayer – responsible for the biggest debacle in the history of  U.S. military strategy. Good riddance to a corporate ghoul who showed more regard for Halliburton than his troops.

Should have stopped with Afghanistan and done the job right.
