From Blacksburg, Virginia: crazy person kills thirty people.
From Baghdad: another 200 people hand in their lunch pails.
Thirty victims would be quite the slow day in Iraq, I think.
So why is it that young Americans are urged to go to Iraq on an idiot's murderous errands, engaged in an enterprise that is profoundly inimical to the actual liberties of the American people, to the pinheaded chorus of "freedom isn't free, you know" -- while clowns like this will assuredly do their best to trash the remaining scraps of those liberties, using those thirty Virginia deaths as a vehicle?
We deserve to be enslaved. And we're getting what we deserve, at a rapidly accelerating pace.
