So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


I may be struck by lightning

It is completely insensitive of me, but just a thought: most of these people are muslim, aren't they? Any coincidence that this happened around Christmas? I'm just saying, maybe God was sending them a message. Of course, you don't see Americans dancing in the streets and handing out candy to children because more than 22,000 muslims were killed in one occurrence. No, you see Americans extending their sympathies. You see Americans loading up supplies to send there. You see Americans volunteering to go help. No, you don't see us rejoicing because of their deaths. When I first heard the news Sunday morning, I felt so sad for these people and thought "how awful" for such a thing to happen to anyone anywhere.

I just wonder if they'd feel the same way if it happened here? I doubt it.

On a lighter note: The penguins escaped a similar fate two days earlier. I wonder if the two earthquakes were related somehow?

    I guess I am the only person on the face of the planet who isn't advocating giving money.

    It really is tragic and makes me sad, but I can't help but think these people would rejoice if this happened in America.

    I'm also not shocked by the outpouring of bloggers encouraging people to contribute money to relief efforts.
