BEN METCALF'S "ON SIMPLE HUMAN DECENCY" IS BOTH SHOCKING AND REMARKABLE. A DEBATE OF WORDS: A POLEMIC EXERCISE STRETCHING THE OUTER LIMITS OF SATIRE

QUOTE:

Ben Metcalf: On Simple Human Decency:

Am I allowed to write that I would like to hunt down
George W. Bush, the president of the United States,

Baghdad Burning: Iraqi Girl Blog: Zarqawi...

The timing is extremely suspicious: just when
people were getting really fed up with the useless
Iraqi government, Zarqawi is killed and Maliki

streets- worries over electricity, water,
death squads, tests, corpses and extremists
in high places prevail right now.)

oppressed, even today, to still be the only so-called
"civilized nation" that executes people.

Other People's Blood


By BOB HERBERT

For the smug, comfortable, well-off Americans, it
doesn't seem to matter how long the war in Iraq
goes on - as long as the agony is endured by others.
If the network coverage gets too grim, viewers can
always switch to the E! channel (one hand on the
remote, the other burrowing into a bag of chips) to
follow the hilarious antics of Paris, Britney,
Brangelina et al. Continue

Caped Crusaders in a Comic Book War

By Jerry Ghinelli

Fresh and well-rested after their year-long vacation,
our valiant crusaders—oil executives by day,
freedom fighters by night—return to the world
stage once again as Batman and Robin: The
