Unintended Irony Edition

Dear Husband and I just turned on the TiVo to watch last night’s broadcast of Ken Burns’ “The War”, and we heard these introductory words: “Corporate funding for The War is provided by…”

DH completed that sentence: Halliburton, Blackwater, and the oil companies.

Oops.  Different war.

    This made me laugh for just a second and then I realized how sad and scary it really is.

    It sounds crazy to say that I long for a war that we Americans could feel proud to be fighting, but this current situation is making me crazy. I keep thinking that today will be the day that the American public’s outrage actually translates to ending the war, but I’m losing hope that our outrage even matters. Dems and Republicans alike seem to powerless to do anything to stop it. I’m beginning to think that this must be exactly what they ALL want.

    Kathy, I enjoy the blog all the way from Kansas.

    Yeah, I noticed that too…wasn’t that bizarre?

    Thanks, Boo — we miss y’all here! Ben, bizarre is a good word. I guess we’re laughing to keep from crying, or throwing things.
