This morning's installment of Democracy Now, hosted by Amy Goodman (who deserves the Pulitzer, Nobel, AND Medal of Freedom) was one of the best ever. She interviewed the mother of one of the four "security contractors" (the Greeks called them "mercenaries") working for Blackwater and killed in Fallujah (you remember Fallujah, the city we love sooo much that we razed it twice, violating all at once Geneva, Nuremburg, and 9 out of those 10 glorious commandments that Dear Leader and his ecstatic Maenads want oh-soooo desperately to shove in our face). Go read the report - and if you still want to sing "Oh Captain My Captain" to Dear Leader and write a paean to the glorious triumphs of an utterly unfettered market, then I've got some real estate to sell you on the slopes of Vesuvius, though I admire the stamina of anyone able to keep their eyes squint shut and their fingers in their ears screaming LALALALALALALALALA for five years and counting (despite their otherwise shameful lack of courage and apparent inability to let go of that square shaped Weltanschauung into which they attempt to force our [unyet as recognized or understood by them] round globe). Tanti Auguri!!!!
