i had no idea any of that stuff was going on...damn...igonorance rules...

i would love to lock George W. in a room, give him letter and find out how many words he doesn't understand...

anyway...try not to let the overwhelming and consistent cruelty of human beings get you down


p.s. i will pay the postage if you send it

Take care friends. This is how mad they want you to get. Don't fall for it.
And Chris, to think you were shy to speak to Cindy Sheenan.

Once again, Chris, you hit the nail squarely on the head. Your eloquence astounds me as usual. Maybe, though, the bombs should contain laughing gas. Tons of it. Make them laugh till those funky yogurt drinks spurt out their noses. Laughter's contagious. Let it be spread cross the world.

And this is why you are my favorite author. Other than Douglas Adams, may he rest in peace.

Bravo, Chris! You said it like no one else can. It's at moments like these that I am reminded why I come here every single day.

This might sound dramatic, but that was one of the most powerful things I've ever read. I laughed, I got a tear, I sat dejected, I laughed again, I scowled.

And now I am in dismay. What a crazy crazy crazy world we live in.

I'm so naive. God, I want to believe so badly that people in power can be rational and good and honest. That religions can focus on ... Huh ... Love, or at a minimum ... common decency.

Oh and Chris ... Love the new avatar. I'm going to brood now. (and by that, I don't mean sit on eggs, I mean it the other way. Though if ideas were eggs, I might be sitting on them.)

You forgot one deciding factor in Bush's whole bombing rationale: Do the Nigerians have oil that we want to control? If they do, then bombs away.

Dude, what's wrong with your head?

That can be addressed to Chris or the President.

Bravo, Mr. Moore!
I totally agree with everything that you've said! (but the sacastic humor wasn't lost on me as well) I especially admired the last lines of the last paragraph: "everyone will remember that we are all bound together by our humanity, and that at the heart of that humanity is human frailty, for which we must all forgive each other."
Thank you for your humorous take on a very disturbing subject (In my opinion, W. is an pompous ass and has weakened our country and the economy...but I'll be damned if he isn't good at bombing the shit out of stuff..It's time to put those talents to good use!)
CHEERS!

P.S. - I gots ta' get me sum o' those Southern Baptist killer robots from Ebay!

I was just referring to the protests, FFPF. Not to worry, we hardly ever bomb England.
