It’s Not An Obsession, Just A Motif

(Note: Before reading this post, please consult the very serious disclaimer.)

Somewhere beneath the stories about Canadian Parliamentary bickering, Karl Rove testifying before a grand jury and thousands suffocating beneath rock in Pakistan is the story of a certain fellow being elected to the new Afghan parliament. Mawlawi Mohammed Islam Mohammadi was the Taliban governor who oversaw the destruction of two huge 1500 year old statues of Buddha, an act considered by many to be a crime against the culture history of humanity. Yet Mohammadi was just swept back into a seat of power.

So let’s get this straight. Billions of dollars are spent to kill hundreds of people and impose a mutant form of democracy on Afghanistan… only to see the same miscreants voted back into office. Good job, boys. Mission Accomplished, indeed.

Here’s something I never considered. It seems the Xerox corporation has secretly been in cahoots with the US government to insert invisible codes onto every sheet printed by a Xerox copier. These codes allow federal investigators to trace copies back to the machine that made them, much like old-time cops would match a ransom note with the typewriter that made it. Does this make anyone else a little mad? These codes have been inserted in secret. More and more, the US government is looking more like the old Soviet Union.

I know many of you are waiting for today’s shocking bestiality story. Sorry, don’t have one. Instead I have a Village Voice article on potential human-animal marriages!
