Opening Arguments

Fast times

Just whittlin' away here while the world goes by faster and faster. First there was Earth Day. Now, for those with short attention spans:

Icons including the Great Pyramids, the Eiffel Tower and China's Forbidden City will be plunged into darkness on Saturday as millions take part in "Earth Hour", a rolling grassroots movement aimed at tackling climate change.

Now in its fourth year, the global campaign promises to be the biggest ever, organisers said, with thousands of cities and towns in 125 countries pledging to take part, despite last year's failed climate talks.

Hopes for a binding treaty to halt global warming, the story notes, "were dashed when December's summit of world leaders only yielded a general agreement on limiting warming to two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit)." Dashed, I tell you, and smashed smithereens and battered and tossed aside. I weep. I mourn. Let's all weep and mourn together. Let's all helpt stop this madness by all hoping and wishing together. Let's go dark for Earth Secon ... oops, there it went.

You neglected to mention our NEWEST "holiday" surely worthy of celebration:


(when that health care bill was signed)

Now, get outside and fly that flag (upside down, mind you)

I can only hope and pray that when they turn out the lights on that day a large number of these morons trip and fall down a flight if stairs.

And Littlejohns "How appalling zank would wish death on innocent liberals" screed begins in 5,4,3,2,1....

(Innocent liberals? How oxymoronic)
