  •  How many innocents.... (none)
    have been caught in a crossfire and been killed in the name of God or Allah in the last 7,000 or so years?  We are here for such a short time anyway, why do we hurry so to leave this life?

    That you link us to them is a reminder of the universality of what I call the human condition.  We live our lives with a morbid understanding of our own mortality.  Carried to the extreme, I believe this is what creates the religious zealots amongst us.  If they can only convince themselves that their beliefs are the true ones, they will be the immortals.  They spend most of their lives convincing others of this, and condeming (or killing off) those whose spiritual beliefs differ.

    That our religious fundementalists are gaining as much political influence as they have now is truly frightening for those who envision the United States being able to sustain itself for another century or two.

    When the middle class is gone, who will support the Republicans in the manner to which they have grown accustomed?
