the only earth?

another non-post

I think I'm just way too overwhelmed by the discontinuation of the Global War on Terror [nyt] to make up a post about how I have a lot of things to do related to work and how even Seattle feels way too hot even though I actually bought a fan to promote better heat exchange in my apartment.

If only the change in terminology meant that our far-right wing government had actually decided to struggle with its own extremism. It seems like the sort of thing that could be addressed by a Very Special Oprah, perhaps with the help of Dr. Phil?

Instead, it seems like we're letting the terrorists off the hook to go after the skateboarders and extreme walkers.


Oh, I misread it. The struggle is against only the violent extremists.
