Mad world

So let me get this straight…
Bush is apparently including $10,000,000,000 in aid for Isreal in the war funding package?
Embedded reporters are being called “independent truth-tellers”, while non-embedded (therefore, independent) reporters are having mortars and RPGs fired at them?
Reporters are claiming that covering the war is “great fun” and that it’s the “greatest story ever” while the Pentagon continues to feed us bullshit about Saddam being dead and the media largely refuses to show us any of the results of war. Of course, all the American “public” wants to see is more flag waving and disregarding of reporting conventions – you know, like “fact checking”.
Oh, and we killed another 14 civilians, while India and Pakistan get ready to blow the living hell out of each other, and North Korea continues to flip us the bird.
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had.
