So I'm sitting here lurking around the corners of the net. I read about this and that. Microsoft's Longhorn (aka Palladium). Neither here no there... Opnion this, opinion that.

Then, of course, I read a lost blurb in a sea of millions of stories on the weapons of mass dectruction in Iraq (http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1101030707-461781,00.html). For whatever reason... I wander around these facts. Hell, I knew this what was going to happen. My mind wanders further. So, Bush is facing mock war crimes tribunal in Japan (http://www.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/getarticle.pl5?nn20030701b3.htm)

Sweat begins to bead on my forehead.

I chew slightly on my tongue as synapse after synapse fires. Something isn't goddamn right.

Then it hits me.

The world is insane.

I don't mean that in a cliche-like, trite manner. The world is in-****ing-sane.

Think about it for a second. Our government considered impeachment (IMPEACHMENT!) for a President for getting a hummer and then lying about it. America was glued to the TV as that sick soap opera played out. But when a President, seemingly hungry for bloody, invades a country on highly questionable terms, no one even cares. The amount of frenzy over this crap in Iraq doesn't even COMPARE to when Clinton was in hot water with his wife.

What the hell?

Think about that for a minute.

No, really. Just run that through your mind for a couple of minutes. Let it lead you where it will.

I'm going to go have an aneurysm.

that's not even to mention that's just a current American example...

So long and thanks for all the fish.

*counts the two or three people who may actually get that*

That's all I have to say on the matter..
