    Current mood:ranty
    Current music:Fun-Da-Mental: Race 2 War

    Headlines from SMH
    Anyone wondering why I'm not in such a good mood today?

    "North Korean flights unsettle crisis talks"
    "Russian official predicts 'catastrophic' events"
    "Washington is back in the nuclear bomb-making business"
    "Bush bars UN weapons teams from Iraq"
    "US determined to punish France for its anti-war stance"
    -all from Sydney Morning Herald, the best reporting in the world in my opinion

    Alex and Mom have recommended not reading the news, but if I don't, who will? The rest of the country turned off a long time ago. If we don't deal with the issues now, who will? It's my damned world too, and I have a right to know what's going on in it. Furthermore, I have a responsibility as a citizen of the world to know what's going on in it. If we shut ourselves off, if we turn away from the world, we're doing exactly what Bush and those other bastards in power want. We're letting them do whatever in the hell they want without consequences. We're shutting ourselves off from the world, from each other, and from ourselves. I'm angry, I'm scared, I'm upset, and they should know it because it's my God-damned world too. I can't turn away. I won't. No more. No more deaf ears, no more blind stares. This is my world too, and I'm ready to do what it takes to make them know it.
