When you wake up in the morning and read that a nukulur power is saying that it will "deal merciless blows" to anyone that messes with it, you know it's going to be one of those days...and maybe that's why I have been wanting to crawl back under the covers...the no-sky-all day thing we have going here doesn't help either...and neither does the fact that the Antarctic just told us, again, that it's our fault... and then of course there's the news that the worst in Iraq is yet to come...which should sound pretty bloody scary to our northern neighbours who have had worse and worse for years now...especially since the Lancet just published another study saying that 650,000 Iraqis have died as a result of the occupation and war...
October must be the month for sexual predators getting bit least as far as awful Moshe Katsav and icky old Foley are concerned...and it was a little blog that got the Foley scandal out there..
The BBC has a piece on Saudi blogging
South Africa's fastest growing paper runs stories like 'girls who pee spoons' and 'boyfriends who eat mothers'...yeah I don't know what the hell is going on either..but there you are.
I'm too sleepy to remember what else I read...but this is today's poem.

Idle threats I hope, because come on Kim may be a head case, but he’s not suicidal. Right? I genuinely believe that it’s all a bunch of hot air. What scares me the most these days is the Geneva Convention fiasco over in the US. Can anyone say segue in to dystopian fiction? Also? The whole collector and purveyor of info rocxxorz, who needs a news feed with you around?

Al-Omma party are launching a new committee to preserve the society's morals..very much like the one in Saudi Arabia..God help us all :)
Thank you very much, always very informative to visit your blog

Yeah, heard of the Lancet's report about Iraq and its fatalities some time back. The number corresponded to 2.5% of the population, which I think is much more than what Saddam killed over the years. Bush doesn't want to believe it. *AHH* It's just a mess and they are being hard-headed about it!

Which reminds me, just watched a moc documentary by Channel 4 called Death of a President. LOVED it! So brilliantly done.

A new committee to preserve the society's morals? hmmm.. interesting!
