clarification

yesterday I wrote something about the war being boring. I think that what I really meant was that the coverage had become overwhelming: news as entertainment informed by hundreds of soda straw views of a giant thing that I don't really agree with. Not to mention twenty-four hour coverage regardless of new information.

I mean, bringing freedome to the oppressed is an excellent goal. But I doubt that's really what's going on, and even if it is, we aren't particularly good at doing that. At least the oil wells are secured to prevent an environmental disaster. And now it seems that we're killing more of our own people than "they" are.

So. I think I'm going to see The Pianist now, before Rachel's Oscar party.
