Did you see this on CNN?

Click on the link above, but only do so when the emotionally sensitive are not around.

Do not punch your CRT in anger. This hurts.

There is good news. As of today, a non-profit agency has offered to bring this boy to the US (along with his family) and do all kinds of reconstructive surgery and counseling (follow up story: http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/meast/08/23/iraq.boyfolo/index.html). The agency is The Children's Burn Foundation (http://www.childburn.org/) and you can donate here: https://www.applyweb.com/public/contribute?s=childb. I think this is great, so I gave them $100.

But I am still very angry. I have a small boy (younger than this boy) and a younger daughter. This struck a little close to home. I almost want to volunteer to go to Iraq. My biggest fear is that instead of letting me hunt down animals like the ones that attacked this boy, they would make me do stupid stuff like build a sewer or drive a convoy through an ambush.

I guess America's imperialist ways ARE better than a religious controlled culture with strong violent tendencies.

Poor kid.

Men wearing masks. So much for being proud of their ideals.
