"They make a desert and call it peace." -- Tacitus

If I have to hear the phrase that last month was "the bloodiest month in Afghanistan yet" ONE MORE GODDAMN TIME I am going to scream. Just scream.

It's like every month for years now. I'm starting to wonder if they even know they're saying it anymore, or if it just rolls off their tongues while their blank lifeless eyes gaze unblinking into the teleprompter abyss. Hello? Anyone out there? Hello?

Isn't someone going to say something?

Sorry man, I wasn't paying attention. I'm on pins and needles worrying about how poor Lindsay Lohan is faring in that awful prison cell.
There's a war where?

Exactly right. The commentary on the outside world gets shorter and more shallow while the entertainment news just grows and grows and grows ... they tell us what to enjoy.
