Ho Hum

The morning papers reassure me that all is in order in the world:

The Israelis are bombing Lebanon
The Hezbollah are rocketing Israelis

The Israelis are bombing Hamas in Gaza
Hamas is rocketing the Israelis

Ho Hum

The Sunnis are killing the Shiites
The Shiites are killing the Sunnis

In Sri Lanka the Tamils are killing government soldiers
Government soldiers are killing Tamils

Ho Hum

In Pakistan someone blew up a Shiia cleric
In Brooklyn they indicted a multiple killer

In two states yesterday they waggled their collective fingers at gay marriage and said, “Bad, bad, bad.”

Ho Hum

The market was down – again
Oil prices are up – again

All is in order in the world. Ho Hum.

Bucky has become a folk hero in upper NY State after killing a policeman.
Two serial killers are scaring people – somewhere (I forget where.)
The government is doing a ‘get him whatever it takes’ number on Barry Bonds and will surely indict him next week. That’s a variation on the ‘get her whatever it takes’ job they did on Martha Stewart.

Ho Hum

No need to go on. It’s like the man said: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Or was it a woman who said that?
