The Gall Of Simplicity

E FOUND THIS SHORT ENTRY FULL OF amazing clarity and insight. Don't forget to check out the author's blog: I saw one of these suboids interviewed in a recent Panorama or Frontline about the death of Bin Laden. As he was talking about killing it was obvious that his pleasure centers were lit up like the macy's fireworks and he went into some kind of romantic, blissed out state while fondling his kalishnikov.
