Another Dark Little Corner

Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.

There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought.

I'm not blaming Blair for George's decisions: George's decisions are George's
responsibilities (and our burdens). But Blair could have delivered a Patton
slap: do it, and you go without us. It probably wouldn't have stopped George,
but in a best possible scenario, it may have slowed the unholy rush to war,
given Hans Blix time to conclude what David Kay found out a year and many lives
later (there were no WMD), and thus exposed George's true reason: "F*** Saddam!
We're taking him out!"

Equally reasonably, George & Co. could have gone off quarter-cocked (as opposed to half-cocked) a year earlier — but without the quasi legitimacy Blair engineered. But then we would be having a very different election campaign. 2004_09_01_barbyawp_archive.html#109542631379759423
I'm going to get the quote wrong, but I thought the most compelling moment in
Fahrenheit 9/11 was this:

"I'm constantly amazed that those who have the least are willing to give the most."

And I'm constantly amazed at how those that have the most are willing to sacrifice those who have the least.
