Re: [thewire] Re: was Osama Bin Laden interviewed for the new issue?
- holy hmmm...maybe you should stay out of politics too.
i really dont know what angle you are trying to take
on DS comments as it seems to me that you are making
some rather blanket "on the surface" idiotic comments
the one thing that watching the 3000 ppl die first
hand has taugh me (atleast) is that death and human
suffering work and are played out unfort on many
different levels, and debate on this one event must be
seen a greater context (if only this was the norm, but
who can change humna nature).
to condemn someone's "overtly simple ideas" with the
ones that youve transplanted (which from these seats
seem equally simple), does nothing to further the
discourse of discussion that DS in engaging in..althou
i havent read the article so i wont comment on his
do we even need a greater discourse? that remains to
be seen. 3000 ppl have died. not alot will change that
at the end of the day
at one point during the various subway anthrax and
bomb threats that were happening here in the city
after 9-11, i contemplated carrying a card in my
wallet asking that no wars be fought in my name should
i be killed. a rather macabre take on current events,
but something that i thought would add to the
discourse in the event of my death from another
we talk about avenging the death of the dead, but are
we even sure that the dead would want their deaths
avenged? for they cannot speak.
so if youre goin to start a discussion on these highly
topical points, please take the time to succinctly
explain your postion rather than throw a bunch of "hot
button" type phrases together so we can get an idea of
what youre trying to say.
cause right now, i for one am totally lost.
