Grumpy old man coming through

OK, this is just funny. Airtoons has a collection of airline emergency illustrations that cracked me up (there's some foul language, but whatever).

On another topic, apparently there's a suicide note written by that guy who took people hostage in the school in Bailey, CO. Have a doctor read the note, analyze it, whatever, and then burn it. Whatever happens, I don't want it to be public. I don't want people thinking that they will finaly be understood or gain fame or something by pulling this chicken-shit. I think it's dangerous to have murderers turn into celebrities. I don't want to know why he did it. F him.

I hope the family of the girl who was killed can get to a peaceful place and recover as much as they can. I hope that the killer vanishes into oblivion.

The Today Show had another episode of Perverted Justice this morning. I'm starting to think they should do this in every town all over America. Round them up and give them the trans fats that they're trying to ban in New York City. You showed up at the house of what you thought was a little girl because you wanted to have sex with her? Boom. You're done. We're going to keep you locked up until we find a cure. I don't know when that will be.
It's not nice, but if you aren't going to play by the rules that make society healthy and free and safe, well, you don't get to be a part of society.

It seems that the basic rules underlying humanity and society are not being taught. I have seen a commercial recently saying how one of the greatest things a man can teach his son is kindness to women and children. How is it that we have to remind ourselves to teach something so basic?
Bill Clinton said in an interview with Meredith Vieira last week
If I could have one wish, I would have people accept the importance of our
common humanity.
How poignant is that? I mean, there seems to be a lot of nonsense that goes on these days because people don't see each other as human. Where does that come from?

I'm kind of angry that the world seems to be taking a turn for the worse. Is this just me getting old? I want to fix things.
I guess I just woke up on the draconian side of the bed.

Damn Jay this should go in your manifesto

Yeah, I'm pretty upset about a lot of things.

Maybe you could compete with Adam to become Andy Rooney's replacement on 60 minutes
