ahhh. i cannot take credit for this brilliant image. but, it amused me so, that i felt compelled to share it. and thus, move on from the woe-is-me post below. think of this as an early hallowe'en.

i'm feeling socially militant these days.
expand the post for some links to some sites designed to inform us all.

iraq body count
Amnesty International
create change
empire of debt
muslim refusenik
faith without fear

Informative post. With our fascination of "smart bombs" and other mythical creatures, we're not happy to read about civilian deaths.

foam ~ hi backacha. thanx for reading that.

x-dell ~ indeed. and how sad. it seems many who do see the numbers somehow justify it to themselves, and that's even sadder.

Actually, they deny the numbers. In a pinch, any Freudian defense will do.

indeed. many like to kick freud in the nuts ... but we all appeal to him in a pinch, don't we.

denial ... it works for the neocon machinery, don't it?
