Yo Flips Out

Not Another Tourist Attraction

You know, it's been AGES since I've done any serious political commentary here. Conspiracy theorists would speculate that this was due to some influence (read: intimidation) on the part of some guys in dark suits and black SUVs. The reality is incredibly mundane and boring: I haven't had the TIME to get into my political views online.

Thanks to my latest shift in employment, that's about to change a tad.

Take this lovely bit, wherein a right wing publication had to abruptly cancel a symposium on how great things are going in Iraq, because one of it's members (who, btw, held the very unpopular view that we weren't doing so hot), was kidnapped and killed in Basra.

'Nuff said.
