When in doubt, don't kill people.

That's what Joi Ito says and I have a hard time disagreeing, but I sure as hell don't know what to do. I listened to the U.N. deliberations in full yesterday and found myself agreeing with just about everything that was said by the French, the Brits, the Russians, and the U.S. That is how messed up I am.

I've been reading warbloggers, peacebloggers, peacebloggers turned warbloggers, the liberal media, the Moonie press, and even pseudo-bloggers ;-) My mind is a muddled mess. I'm glad I'm not the one making the decisions, but I sure do wish we had somebody other than Shrub, Jr. with the final word.

Oil War.

The above image is not a political commentary, it is a collage that I created of a wargame that I played as a kid, Oil War: a "game of hypothetical warfare in the Middle Eastern Oil states" by Simulations Publications, Inc.

McCain on SNL.

Senator John McCain hosted Saturday Night Live last night and played a role in just about every skit. McCain did a great job playing the role of gruff-voiced Attorney General John Ashcroft. One of his lines was something like this: "we will not be safe until every American has a barcode tatooed on his neck and a chip in this foreheard that responds to this remote control." The Ashcroft wig was spot-on as well.

Monkey Time

Surely you remember our national motto: E Pluribus Unum. "Out of many, one." Beautiful, isn't it? Its origins go back to that magical day -- July 4, 1776 -- when Congress not only approved the Declaration of Independence, but also commissioned John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin to design an official seal for the new country. Their first design included the famous phrase that became our official motto.

There is just one small problem, however.

E Pluribus Unum isn't our national motto anymore.
