Feathers flying

So much seems to be going on at present that it looks like a cock fight. I'll just run a small list. As Billy might say this is just the monkeys fucking around.

And not much but still changing Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco,

Then there's little talked about Bahrain, Yemen, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan, Somalia

And now we have the Ivory Coast, Syria and who know what other countries are fed up with their governance.

Not to forget Japan (earthquakes tsunami and meltdown)

And the long forgotten Haiti, Chile (earthquakes)

Oil spill in the Gulf? What oil spill?

And the well forgotten Hurricane Katrina

Oh well just shut her down. Government doesn't do anything for the people unless you rely on one of those monthly checks.

The least they could do is provide actual monkeys, or traveling freakshow. PT Barnum for pretzeldent.

What a frigging mess huh? Things just keep getting worse and worse it is supposed to.

Those that don't pay any attention to most of it and just go on with their lives seem to be the happiest folks I see around.

Getting out of town helps my frame of mind.

You forgot the Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake in February, which killed a couple hundred people. And probably a bunch more - it's THAT kind of year...

Sometimes it seems like if it wasn't for bad news, there wouldn't be any news at all. Then again, some good may come from the upheavals in the Mideast. Time will tell.

As for domestic news, . . . oh, forget it.
