Anything happen while I was away?
Anything other than the good old human habit of death and destruction I mean.
Those are a given.
It's what we do. We're just so darn good at it.
Human beings are the conscious animal and of course consciousness is either the jewel in evolution's crown or god's ultimate gift, according to which blarney you buy.
But maybe consciousness is a curse and a festering sore.
There's more evidence for the latter just now.
At bottom I don't care if they want to kill each other off. I wish them luck and hope they all succeed. I won't miss any of them.
I just wish the rest of wouldn't sell them the weapons.
