The Hollow Days and Stolen Joy
I begin this post with "The War" in the background - and missing my Father who survived it - but could not live forever.
Pat Robertson has decided to settle for Vice-President, Fox News is going to make sure Ron Paul doesn't have a chance, and Mabusharraf is hiding in the shadows of the Christmas trees America will put up just days from now.
And it's not even Thanksgiving yet.
The sequel to "Down & Out in Beverly Hills" has gone wide as lethal toys and prescription med ingredients from China sweep across America.
The President of the United States proudly proclaims that "the United States does not torture", while the thought bubble above his head finishes the sentence; "But WE do...".
Who is "WE"? Certainly not "THE PEOPLE".
With Comet 17P/Holmes bearing down on us, I leave the People* with a Message for all Seasons:
"THE STAR THE WISE MEN SAW
ROSE WITHIN THEMSELVES,
AND CAN BE SEEN THERE STILL"
My Name is Michael Sterling. *Pray for Benazir Bhutto.
Long live BibiJi!
