I just returned from a vacation, and it was great being away from it all. I was basically oblivious to what was going on in the world for 5 days.
Now I'm back and among other things:
The DC area sniper is still at large
The North Koreans have a Nuke program after all
The US is still seeking support for an invasion of Iraq
Being on a beach and seeing how beautiful life can be, it's amazing how freaking screwed-up this world is. Where I was for 5 days, it was "no worries, mon", and "no problem, mon". Too bad the rest of the world doesn't work that way.
