You Have to be Bloody Kidding

What a ridiculous media event is the hunting accident involving our worthy VP? This should be of no consequence - and is truly of no consequence - to anyone. Now, of course, one may say that they agree; they may also say that the nature of public things, being rather charged and commanding of attention, requires that even when a "story" such as this ought to be noted in passing at most, nevertheless the "story" requires full publicity and "openness."

I think not. Utter bollocks, rather. To give in to non-reason is the little death that brings total obliteration. We see far too many little deaths lately, I think.

Like this one... ""Watching the news in my hotel room before my speech, I just saw CNN air a few of the new, highly inflammatory Abu Ghraib photos now making the rounds.

No pixelation of the nude prisoners in the photos. No disclaimers about paying respect to members of the US military who will be endangered by publication of the pics. The Washington Post used the opportunity to republish Abu Ghraib photos and video it obtained in April 2004.

Readers have been e-mailing all day the question the MSM needs to answer:

Why the Abu Ghraib photos, but not the Mohammed Cartoons?

We're listening...""
