Not one more death.

If the release of the torture photos causes even one death, that is one death too many.

It is my fervent hope that insanity of the Bush/Cheney years doesn’t cause any one else to die.

It is a fervent, wishful, unrealistic hope.

I don’t think my thoughts on these issues are all that earth-shaking, but there are many, many people who are consistent with their efforts to bring awareness to these events, events which, to me, are all part of the insanity of war.

JimStaro is one. Please read his work.  Thanks.

    Old Woman and The Child

    He said,

    “It is dark!

    Did the comet die?”

    She answered,

    “Yes, it is dark,

    the comet is gone,

    dark prayers are planted in the land.

    But look,

    here, in the round

    we still have our fire.  

    I tell you now,

    before they come-

    drink blood from our fingers

    eat bowls of our dead-

    we’ll show them the river’s source in the stars,

    found in each of their palms.

    And one-by-one

    they will sit down, and remember.”

    If our highest goal is to prevent the deaths of our soldiers, why don’t we simply lie to the world about everything they do? We could create a propaganda ministry, and call it the “Ministry of Truth.” Think of all the lives we could save with our lies!

    sees Bush and Cheney cuffed and guarded in a prisoners dock at their war crimes trials, that may be one thing that will save a lot of US Troops lives.

    are two other steadfast, tireless bearers of hope in darkness: xofferson and dennis.
